Rebeca Martínez Haya was born in Requena, Valencia. She studied Chemical Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. In 2014, she completed the Experimental and Industrial Organic Chemistry Master and started her PhD in the Institute of Chemical Technology (Polytechnic University of Valencia-Spanish National Research Council) conducted over the supervision of Prof. Miranda and Prof. Marín. Her tesis was focused in the mecanistic study of different photoredox processes using time resolved techniques. She has made two research stays, during her Final Degree Project of the Chemical Engineering degree, at the laboratory of Prof. Krakovsky in the Macromolecular Physics Department of Karlova University (Czech Republic), with an Erasmus grant; and as pre-doctoral student at the laboratory of Prof. König in the Chemistry and Pharmacy Faculty of Regensburg University (Germany), with a DAAD grant. In 2017 she was one of the two PhD students selected for the “Ford- Apadrina la Ciencia” contracts. Currently, she holds a postdoctoral grant from the “Generalitat Valenciana” to develop a collaborative project between the Polytechnic University of Valencia and the Complutense University of Madrid  based on the deveolpement and characterization of nanomaterials with photochemical activity.

Caterina

Caterina Momoli was born in 1992 in Rome, Italy. She obtained her degree in Chemestry in 2016 at the Università degli Studi la Sapienza where she also obtained her Master degree in Organic Chemestry in 2019. During her studies she worked on enyne methathesis of propargyl acrylates for the synthesis of butenolides for industrial and biomedical applications, under the supervision of Dr. Andrea D’Annibale. Caterina is currently collaborating with the group of Prof. Nazario Martin at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, working on the synthesis of fullerenes derivatives and their applications to perovskite solar cells, under the supervision of Prof. Salvatore Filippone.

Diego

Diego Jiménez Vicent was born in 1992 in Madrid, Spain. He obtained his degree in Chemistry in 2016 de Madrid and Master degree in Organic Chemistry in 2017 at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). He worked for 3 years synthesizing Fe-Fe-hydrogenase mimics for H2 production in the Bioorganometallic Chemistry Group of the UCM. In September 2021, he joined the Organic Molecular Materials group and started his Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. José Santos and Prof. Nazario Martín. His research interests are focused on the development of conductive organic polymers by on-surface synthesis.

Margarita

Prof. Dr. Mª. Margarita Suárez Navarro is a Full Professor of Organic Chemistry and Emeritus Professor at the Havana University, Cuba. (ORCID Code: 0000 0002 3138 4364). She has developed her own research on the synthesis and transformation of heterocycles with potential bioactive properties, reporting on new protocols using non-conventional synthetic procedures such as microwave, ultrasound and solid phase synthesis as a contribution to the Combinatorial Chemistry and Green Chemistry, performing structural and conformational study of the compounds synthesized by NMR and X-ray techniques and the application of theoretical calculations. Her interests also include the chemistry of fullerenes with special emphasis on the preparation of fullerene derivatives by means of cycloaddition reactions, and investigations on the chemical reactivity of carbon nanostructures and hybrids molecules. Since 1990 she has established scientific contacts with Prof. Dr. Nazario Martín, creating a fruitful collaboration that has resulted in more than scientific 70 papers in international journals.
