José Lorenzo Alonso Gómez

Lorenzo photoMy research focuses on synthesis, spectroscopy, and simulation of new chiral systems, as diverse as chiral allenophanes or nanorods adsorbed onto fiber surfaces with chiral morphology.

Study of the conformational distribution is undertaken by the interplay between ORD, ECD, VCD, and NMR, assisted by ab initio calculations. Analysis of the transitions responsible for the optical activity aims at understanding the origin of the chiroptical response.

This will enable the design of new functional materials with chiroptical properties a la carte for a wide range of applications in biology and physics, including the structural determination of proteins and DNA, and the pursuit of non-linear optics.
