Here we leave a video we recorded recently to present our group to the Specialized Group on Organometallic Chemistry (GEQO) of the Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ). We apologize in advance to our non-Spanish viewers as the recording is in Spanish, still we hope it gives you an idea of who we are!
