Brief description of the Research Team / Research Group / Department
The Chemical Optosensors & Applied Photochemistry Research Group at Complutense Univ. of Madrid (UCM), led by full Prof. G. Orellana and currently formed by ca. 15 members (3 add. Profs., 4 post-docs, 8 PhD students) belonging to the Dpmts. of Organic Chem. and Analytical Chem., has more than 25 years" experience in luminescent photochemical micro/nano (bio)sensors and tailored molecular probes for environmental, aeronautics, food analysis and industrial apps., plus artificial molecular recognition materials (MIPs), medical and environmental applications of singlet oxygen. We have received seamless funding from National (19 grants), European (11 EU projects, incl. 2 Marie-Curie ITNs), and Regional (7 grants) Bodies in the last 23 years. Over 150 pubs. in leading journals provide an account of our contributions to science (www.gsolfa.info). Collaboration with ca. 15 research groups worldwide are currently on going in the above-mentioned areas. Our strong application-oriented research is shown by a significant number of contracts with leading enterprises, including Repsol, Agilent Tech., Suez, CESA, TAP Biosys. and Gas Natural Fenosa, among many others. Over 20 patents (6 of them EU or PCT) granted so far witness our technology transfer. Our state-of-the-art instrumentation and facilities span 5 labs and include synthesis, laser kinetic spectrometry, laser single-photon-timing, FLIM, HPLC, microplate readers, photon-counting fluorometers and fiberoptic optoelectronics.
Research lines / projects proposed
Luminescent (photo)chemical sensors and biosensors for environmental, industrial, aeronautical and security applications. Optical chemical sensors based on biomimetic recognition materials (e.g. molecularly imprinted polymers). Instrumentation for optical chemical sensing. Novel principles and mterials for optical chemical sensing. Applications of singlet oxygen to photodynamic disinfection (antimicrobial photochemotherapy, aPCT, PDT).
