Electrides: Rare and Promising Compounds

Posted on March 25, 2015 at 5:05 PM

A few weeks ago we published our work on molecular electrides in Chemical Communications. The work has received some additional attention by Chemistry World, the blog from the Royal Society of Chemistry. In this post I will try to summarize the contents of our recently pub...

AccuCT. Eloy's Marie Curie Project

Posted on March 20, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Eloy and I have been working together for the past two years. At some point, it occurred to us studying the first stages of the physical processes taking place in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC). It all started as a mere simple exercise to motivate young students to try computational chemistry research. Little by little, we have familiarized ourselves with the computational techniques used (there is still a long way to go) ...

Finalist at the Marcial Moreno Mañas Lectureship award

Posted on February 2, 2015 at 3:25 PM

At the end of January the Marcial Moreno Mañas Lectureship award from the RSEQ (Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry) was conferred. I did not win the award but I was chosen among the three finalists, as stated here. Needless to say, I more than happy of this outcome. I shall keep trying :-)

My talk 'New Stringent Conditions for the Cumulant Matrix' was selected for 10th edition of the World Association of Theoretically-Oriented Chemists (WATOC) that will be celebrated in Santiago de Chile. In addition, I was invited to give a talk in the satellite meeting "New Approaches in Theoretical Chemistry" that will be held in the University of Chile in Santiago two days before WATOC.

Finalist at the European Young Chemist Award

Posted on July 19, 2014 at 6:55 PM

Last week the European Young Chemist Award Organization notified me that I had been selected among the finalists of the EYCA2014. The final step of this competition is a 10min talk that takes places at the 5th European Chemistry Congress that I will attend in Istanbul. As far as I remember there are eight candidates in the postdoc category;...

New approximation to the third-order density

Posted on June 18, 2014 at 6:45 PM

In the last years we have worked in the design of a new approximation to the third-order density that just got accepted for publication in J. Chem. Theory Comput. The nth order density is a well-known quantity in quantum mechanics that gives the probability of finding n particles (usually electrons) simultaneously in different location of the molecular sp

Conference Tour 2014

Posted on June 12, 2014 at 4:25 AM

This year research will take me to travel around the world. Literally :-) My trip starts on the 8th of August and I will be back in Girona the 7th of September. I will attend three conferences and visit a research group.

My journey starts in San Franciso. I will participate in the 248th ACS meeting in San Francisco where I will give two oral presentations:

Cover in Chem. Eur. J.

Posted on May 10, 2014 at 9:45 AM

This year, a work published in Chem. Eur. J. was chosen for a cover in this journal. This work is devoted to Inverse carbon-free sandwich structures with formula E2P4 (E=Al, Ga, In, Tl), which have been proposed as a promising new target in main-group chemistry. Our computational exploration of their corresponding potential-energy surfaces at the S12h/TZ2P level show...
