Professor Antonio Echavarren

The research of the Echavarren group centers on the development of new reactions based on the use of electrophilic complexes of Au(I), Pt(II), and other transition metals as catalysts and their applications in organic synthesis of complex, biologically active molecules.

The Echavarren group is also examining new strategies for the synthesis of polyarenes of interest in material science. In particular, they are interested in the ready construction of C-60 skeletons using reactions catalyzed by Pd(0) and other transition metals.
