Juan Carlos Pérez Sánchez, biographical sketch

Juan Carlos Pérez Sánchez was born in 1999 in Zaragoza (Spain). He graduated in Chemistry with honours (“Bachelor Extraordinary Award”) at the University of Zaragoza in 2021. He obtained a Collaboration Fellowship (2020-21) in the Inorganic Chemistry Department to work on the project “Pioneering synthesis of chiral metal-organocatalysts derived from ferrocene and study of its applications” and a JAE Intro CSIC Grant (2021-22) to work on the project “Design and Synthesis of New Molecular Architectures. Study of its Biological and Catalytic Properties”, both directed by Prof. M. Concepción Gimeno. 

He completed the Master’s degree in Molecular Chemistry and Homogeneous Catalysis with his Master Thesis about “Synthesis of Ferrocene based Catalytic Structures and Study of its Properties” with honours (“Master Extraordinary Award”). This work was also awarded as the best Master’s Thesis by the territorial section (Aragon) of Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry.

He is currently a PhD student (FPU predoctoral contract) at the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at University of Zaragoza under the supervision of Dr. Raquel P. Herrera and Prof. M. Concepción Gimeno. His research interest focuses on Gold & Ferrocene Chemistry developing Molecular Complexity for its use on catalytic and biological properties.
