Irene  Mustieles Marin

Équipe 7. Nanostructures et Chimie Organométallique , Post-doctorante

Irene completed her studies in chemistry at the Universitat de Valencia, during which she did a year as Erasmus student at the Université de Strasbourg. Then she moved to Paris to start her PhD in chemistry at the Laboratoire de Chimie Moléculaire at the Ecole Polytechnique. During her PhD she worked on the synthesis and oxidation of Cu, Ni and Mn complexes displaying non-innocent ligands (salen-type) and the study of their electronic structure with the help of different spectroscopies (NMR, EPR), electrochemical techniques (cyclic voltammetry) and magnetic measurements (SQUID), among others.

Currently, she is working as postdoctoral researcher at the LPCNO, which joined in April 2019. Her work is focused on the development on new nano-catalysts for magnetically-induced catalysis. Thus, she works on the synthesis of mono- or bimetallic ferromagnetic nanoparticles and their characterization (magnetic and structural). These systems have been applied in the CO2 conversion and hydrodeoxygenation or hydrogenolysis reactions, among others. Two of her main research interests are the heterogeneous catalytic processes for the conversion of biomass-derived products and the solid-state hydrogen storage.
