The C3 is active in different areas of catalysis:

  • electro and photocatalysis.
  • asymmetric catalysis and biocatalysis.
  • homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.
  • computational studies of catalytic process.


C3 pays particular attention to the develop of “Zero-waste processes” in different fields:

  • bio-mass reuse.
  • CO2 fixation and H2 production.
  • API, polymers, cosmetics.
  • energy.
  • organic electronics.


The research of the C3 will contribute to achieve some of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
