The Nanoscience and Molecular Materials research group is directed by Professor Tomas Torres, at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
We are organic chemists working in synthesis of phthalocyanines and related compounds since 1993, focused on the preparation of molecular materials. We are also very much interested in studying the practical possibilities of the compounds we are working with. Thus, we have developed much work in the field of the non-linear optical properties of phthalocyanines and, more recently, in the preparation and study of properties of electro- and photoactive ensembles based on phthalocyanines.

How to reach us:

To get to the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, you may take the train (lines C1, C7 or C10, direction Alcobendas, Tres Cantos or Colmenar), either at the Atocha or Chamartín stations, or you may take a bus (line 714) at Plaza Castilla.

Our group is based at the Organic Chemistry Department (Module C-I), which is in the Facultad de Ciencias of the University.

How to reach the Facultad from the train (Estación de Renfe) or bus (Autobuses) stations:

Module C-I is the first one of right-side aisle at the Facultad:

The groups' laboratories are at the 3rd floor of the module:
