Enantioselective synthesis of bioactive compounds

Line of research
This line of research deals with the synthesis of natural and non-natural bioactive molecules. Carrying out these studies allows not only to obtain compounds useful in the pharmaceutical or agrochemical fields but also constitutes the starting point for carrying out research in the field of asymmetric synthesis by developing strategies for solving the problems that the creation of complex chiral molecules necessarily entails. We are working on the synthesis of parthenolide and of malaymycin, two natural ompounds that possess interesting biological activity.
