(Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia, Spain)
Feliu Maseras received his Ph.D. in 1991 from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). After long post-doctoral stays in the groups of Keiji Mokuma and Odile Eisenstein, he worked as Associate Professor in the group of Agustí Lledós in UAB, from where he moved to his current position at the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) in 2004.
His main research topic has been the computational study of the mechanisms of homogeneous catalysis. Recent years have seen an increased interest on less usual processes such as host-guest catalysis, photocatalysis, single electron transfer. He has also started new research lines in big data treatment, and in computational mechanochemistry.
In recent years, Feliu Maseras undertaken some editorial activity. He has been a member of the Advisory Editorial Board of Chemical Society Reviews from January 2011 and, more significantly, Associate Editor of ACS Catalysis from March 2019.
