Montserrat Gómez received her PhD from the University of Barcelona (UB, 1991) in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. She carried out a post-doc in I. Tkatckenko’s group (Toulouse, 1992) and sabbatical stays in P.W.N.M. van Leeuwen (Amsterdam, 1998) and B. Chaudret (Toulouse, 2002) teams. During 1993-2004, she was Lecturer in the UB working on chiral ligand design and enantioselective catalysis. Since 2005, she is SYMAC team group leader at the University of Toulouse-3. Her current research work is focused on transition-metal catalyzed processes mainly using non-conventional solvents (ionic liquids, glycerol), covering polymetallic complexes and well-defined nanocatalysts for applications in synthesis.
