Current research

My research consists of using computational chemistry to explore cycloadditions and organocatalysis high pressure.

  • First, we will be using the XP-PCM method to look into the effect of pressure on cycloaddition reactions and study the possible violation of the Woodward-Hoffmann rules.
  • Second, we will look into interesting organocatalysis systems in order to evaluate the effect of pressure on the obtained stereoselectivity.
  • Finally, we will experimentally verify interesting predictions from calculations.
