Clara Viñas graduated in Chemistry and in Pharmacy. PhD in Pharmacy under the supervision of Prof. F. Teixidor in 1990. Pre-doctoral stay at the Prof. Rudolph’s laboratory at The University of Michigan for a year. Back to Barcelona, worked for industry and later moved to Sabadell City Hall Labs where she became the director to work on food and environmental control.  She joined the C.S.I.C. as tenured scientist in 1991; promoted to research scientist in 2002 and to research professor in 2006. Her research interests are: synthesis of novel boron compounds to be used for future medicinal applications (h= 45)


ABSTRACT: Boron clusters and organic molecules display manifestly different electronic, physical, chemical and geometrical characteristics. These differences highlight the complementarity of organic synthons and boron... [ view full abstract ]
