Prof. Dr. Fernando Lopéz-Ortiz

12Fernando López-Ortiz

Was born in Avilés, Asturias (North Spain). He graduated from the University of Oviedo in 1980 and received a Ph. D. degree (1987) working on organic synthesis via a-lithiated phosphazenes under the supervision of J. Barluenga and F. Palacios. From 1987 to 1989 he was postdoctoral Humboldt fellow in Germany, first (1987-88) at the University of Siegen with H. Günther undertaking research on NMR of organolithium compounds in solution, and second (1988-89) at the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung (Mülheim a. d. Ruhr) with R. Benn for investigating on 187Os-NMR. In November 1989 he became Profesor Titular at the University of Oviedo, where he started his own research. He moved to the University of Almería (1996), where he is Professor of Organic Chemistry. Current research activities include the application of directed metalation of organophosphorus compounds in organic and organometallic chemistry, studies of reaction mechanisms involving organometallic species through multinuclear magnetic resonance and more recently plant metabolomic investigations using NMR techniques.
