The Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ), in the frame of the “Premios RSEQ 2011”, has awarded Prof. Antoni Llobet the “Premio de Química Inorgánica” and it has also awarded Prof. Feliu Maseras the “Premio de Química Física”. Both awards are sponsored by Bruker Española.
Prof. LLobet carries out research on the development of tailored transition metal complexes as catalysts for selective organic and inorganic transformations including the oxidation of water to molecular dioxygen, supramolecular catalysis, the activation of C-H and C-F bonds, and the preparation low molecular weight complexes as structural and/or functional models of the active sites of oxidative metalloproteins.?
Prof. Maseras focuses his research in the design and application of the quantum mechanics / molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods to problems of practical interest, and the computational study of molecular systems containing transition metal atoms.
