The IMAES group receives the researcher A. Acevedo, from the University of BATH (UK), for three weeks in October, to complete the research on her doctoral thesis.

The objective of the doctoral thesis is the development of different pathways for the optimization and scaling of photocatalytic reactions with sunlight. To this end, different reactions of relevance in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry are evaluated, studying the reaction parameters that affect kinetics and reaction mechanisms. On the other hand, different reactors such as the Spinning Disc Reactor (SDR) will be optimized to carry out these reactions under natural sunlight and thus demonstrate the future applicability of this technology.
