Supramolecular Chemistry Group

(Top) José Joaquín Gómez, Dra. Amparo Velasco, Dra. Fabiola Zapata, Dr. Antonio Caballero. (Down) Jose Luis Esquivel, Ylenia López, Pablo Martínez Mestre and Pedro López.

The research in the Dr. Antonio Caballero Group at the University of Murcia (Spain) is focused in the study of new supramolecular non conventional non covalent interactions like halogen or chalcogen bonding interaction and their applications in the development of new anion sensors. Interestingly our research is also focused in the fabrication of new supramolecular polymers.
