Main research interest,

Research in the Muñoz Lab. solves problems in Inorganic, Organic, Organometallic, Excited state Chemistry using theoretical and computational methodologies, in order to understand the electronic structure and related molecular properties, increasing the knowledge about experimental physico-chemical observables.

Currently, we are engaged in the following areas:

  • Theoretical chemistry employing relativistic methodologies

  • Prediction of molecular metallic clusters and main group aggregates

  • Group theory applications

  • Understanding of experimentally observations in collaboration to experimentalist

  • Magnetic response (nuclear shielding tensors, chemical shift anisotropy and induced magnetic field)

  • Closed-shell interactions in coinage metal clusters (d10-d10)

  • Non-covalent interactions, Host-Guest, Cation-π, Anion-π systems, etc.

  • Superatoms and molecules from,

  • Analysis of UV-vis, FTIR, EPR and multi-nuclear NMR

  • Inorganic and Organometallic synthesis. We are also engaged in synthesis and characterization of some interesting molecules.

  • Open to any other interesting field
