Publication: Switching between hydrophobicity and hydrophylicity in MOFs

My colleague and great friend Dra. Sabina Rodriguez signed a great contribution on a tricky topic studying the post synthetic modifications that can be performed to affect one of the crucial properties of MOFs: Their water resistance. I am glad I was given the chance to be part of it. These unprecedented findings have been published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition.

Publication: CO2/N2 selectivity in amide containing MOFs

Through a fruitful collaboration with the Tarbiat Modares University of Tehran, initiated by my friend Dr. Vahid Safarifard, we investigated the separation potential of some novel amide functionalised MOFs. This work has been published in Crystal Growth & Design.

Award: Juan de la Cierva and Beatriú de Pinos Fellowships

When I arrived to my new lab in Barcelona, my boss suggested that I should apply for some fellowships.

I followed his advises and we submitted two applications for fellowships.

I recently got the results, and incredible news, my two applications have been selected. Even better, I am ranked first in Chemistry for the Juan de la Cierva fellowship.

Unfortunately, I cannot accept both.
