Sabina is joining our group after three years post-doctoral research at the Supramolecular Nanochemistry and Materials group of Prof. Daniel Maspoch in the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Barcelona, Spain). She was working on the synthesis and characterization of new Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Coordination Polymers (CPs) based on peptides, poly-pyridyl, poly-carboxylic and nucleobases as organic ligands. She was focused on the study of their properties, such as hydrophobicity, gas sorption or the possibility to tune these properties by post-synthetic modification. Previously, Sabina completed her PhD in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Vigo (Spain) in the Metallosupramolecular Chemistry group –under the supervision of Prof. Ezequiel Vazquez-Lopez, where she was working on the synthesis and characterization of CPs based on hydrazone ligands. She was focused on their single-crystal structure determination and the identification of their expansion patterns, involving supramolecular interactions. She also did a short stay at the Porous Solid Group (Lavoisier Institute of Versailles, France) under the supervision of Prof. Franck Millange. In our group, Sabina will focus on the development of MOF-on-MOF hybrids for membrane separation and on the crystallographic study of their hetero-epitaxial structural relationship. Welcome Sabina!
