Dr. Pablo A. Lorenzo Luis

Associate Professor

Inorganic Chemistry Section at BioLab





Since 2004, when he was appointed Associated Professor, he has obtained four consecutives six-year research sections (1996/2001; 2002/2007; 2008/2013 and 2014/2019). He has co-supervised two projects leading to obtaining DEA´s (2006); three PhD Thesis with European and International Mention (2010, 2011, 2019); it has supervised two collaboration scholarship projects (2011-12, 2012-13) and has been Tutor at the ULL University of a Final Degree Project (Erasmus-Univ. of Gdansk; 06/25/2015). Co-author of 60 international papers, 5 reviews, 2 book chapters and a patent (2627009; B2). He has presented more than 30 presentations at national and international conferences. Its number of citations and h-index is a function of the databases available: (1 st ) Scopus: h-index = 21 and 1313 citations collected from 56/67 publications (average of citations/year during the last 5 years = 87); (2 nd ) Researcher ID: K-2273-2012: h-index = 22 and 1255
citations collected from 53/67 publications (average of citations / year during the last 5 years = 80) and (3 rd ) Google Scholar Citations: h-index = 23, i10-index = 42 and 1239 citations collected from the 67 publications (average of citations / year during the last 5 years = 98). 74% of the articles are classified as Q1 or first places in Q2 (50/65: JCR-ISI Web). As a result of this scientific activity, he has participated in 13 R+D+i projects financed by Administrations Public Entities.
After joining the Inorganic Chemistry Area of ULL (1995), his research comprised the following lines of research: Chromium(VI) Compounds (Bachelor’s Thesis-1993); Iso and Heteropolyanions (PhD Thesis-1998); use of Polydentate ligands capable of generating multidimensional crystalline structures (ULL and CNR-Florence-Italy 1999) and Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis (Florence-Italy 2001). As a result of this scientific activity, he launched a new research line aimed at developing new water-soluble organometallic ruthenium complexes of the {RuCp}-moiety. This line, new in the Inorganic Chemistry Section, seeks to obtain new organometallic complexes where the metal can act as a sustainable metal catalyst as well as antiproliferative drug for cancer treatment. The compilation of these results allowed him to attend as guest speaker at the Biannual Congress of the Specialized Group (QUIES2014-Almería), give a Seminar as Visiting Professor (Debrecen-Hungary, September 2014) and participate as Chairman during the Workshop Metals, Water and Sun (MWS2015-Almería). Evaluator of projects (FONCyT-2013; ANII-2017); Editorial Board in the Inorganic Chemistry Section (Hindawi-Editorial) and reviewer of international scientific journals (J. of Crystal Growth, Polyhedron, Inorg. Chim. Acta (Elsevier); New Journal of Chemistry (RSC).
