Sandra Hidalgo, Ph.D.


Short Bio

Sandra Hidalgo was born in Cali – Colombia. In 2008 she obtained her Master degree in Sciences at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, UNAM, where she worked in carbonylation of unsaturated substrates using K4Fe(CN)6•3H2O y Ni(CN)2•4H2O (Prof. Armando Cabrera Ortiz). In 2014 she obtained her PhD degree in Chemical Sciences at UNAM, her research was on inorganic synthesis on heterobimetallic ring formation using metals of group four with Aluminoxanes and Aluminoxane Sulfides (Prof. Mónica Moya group, UNAM, México).

Summary of Interests

Among her research interests are the synthesis of organometallic complexes containing hemiliable ligands with alkaline earth metals, transitional and lanthanides. Potential use of Organometallic Complexes in the activation of small molecules and in polymerization processes. She also participates as partner in projects of Applied Mathematics focused on basic sciences and engineering, in bioremediation projects for the removal of heavy metals (hexavalent chromium) and evaluation of derivates of L- Proline as potential organic catalysts.

Current Research projects

Synthesis of the organometallic compound with the ligand 4,5-bis(diphenylthiophosphinoyl)-1,2,3-triazolate and hemilabile ligands (Ph)2PCH2[P(Ph)2N{P(OR)2(E)}], [(Ph)2P(E)CH2[P(Ph)2N{P(OR)2(E)}] y H2C[P(Ph)2N{P(OR)2(E)}]2 (E = S, Se; R = Et, Ph)
