  • carmona-ernesto

    Carmona, Ernesto

    He is PhD degree, University of Seville, 1974, Professor F. González García, and did postdoctoral work at Imperial College London with (the late) Professor Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson (1974-1977). He then returned to Sevilla, to become full Professor in 1983, where he established an independent research group in the area of Organometallic Chemistry.

    Over the years, his research interests have concentrated in the activation of small, unsaturated molecules, like N2, CO, CO2, C2H4, etc., by compounds of several transition elements, in particular by low-valent molybdenum and tungsten compounds containing phosphine ligands, and also by organometallic compounds of nickel and palladium.
