Martín León

Nazario Martín is full professor of Organic Chemistry at the University Complutense of Madrid and vicedirector of IMDEA-Nanoscience. He has served as a member of the Editorial Board of Chemical Communications. He has been a member of the International Editorial Advisory Board of The Journal of Materials Chemistry (2000-2006) and a member of the Board of The Journal of Organic Chemistry and Accounts of Chemical Research, ChemPlusChem, ChemSusChem and Chemistry-an Asian Journal, and a member of the International Advisory Board of Chemical Society Reviews and Chemical Communications.

Recently he became the Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Materials Chemistry (A, B and C). He has been the recipient of the “Dupont Prize of Science” in 2007 and of the “Gold Medal and Research Award” in 2012, the highest distinction given by the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry. He has been appointed with the Spanish national “Jaime I Award for basic research” 2012, and the recipient of the “Alexander von Humboldt Award” and “Richard E. Smalley Research Award” (USA) in 2013. He has received the Catalán-Sabatier award from the French Chemical Society in 2014 and the prestigious “Miguel Catalán” award from the Madrid Community in 2015.

Research Lines

The research interests at the Prof. Martín’s group span a range of targets mainly focused to the study of new materials for photovoltaic applications. In particular, our group is currently engaged in:

  1. Design and synthesis of new hole transporting materials for high efficient perovskites solar cells. We have incorporated our new derivatives into photovoltaic devices based on perovskites displaying effi- ciencies as remarkable as 18.2 % (Chem. Commun 2015 and ACIE 2016).
  2. Electron transporting materials for perovskites solar cells. We have a very extensive experience in the preparation of new fullerenes derivatives. Taking advantage of this experience we want to use these new derivatives as electroactive materials for perovskites solar cells (Adv. Funct. Mater. 2005, Adv. Funct. Mater. 2010, J. Mater. Chem. 2011).
  3. Devicefabrication.Wearealsointerestedintodevicespreparationandcharacterizationofbothorganic and hybrid devices.
  4. Organic Photovoltaics. We are interested in designing new electroactive materials for bulk-heterojunction solar cells.
