Miquel Solà new Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry

Miquel Solà has recently been selected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). This scientific society, founded in 1980, aims to promote the understanding and advancement of the chemical sciences. Although the vast majority of more than 50,000 members of the association are British, this is also open to researchers from around the world. Each quarter the society awards the title of Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) to about 100 chemists that have stood out for their contributions to the advancement of the chemical sciences.

Prof. Miquel Solà is a theoretical and computational chemist who works in four research lines: i) the study of molecular aromaticity, and particularly the development of new indicators of aromaticity and the examination of new forms of aromaticity such as three-dimensional aromaticity, metalloaromaticity, and multiple aromaticity; ii) the analysis of the nature of the chemical bond using energy decomposition analysis and different electron delocalization measures like multicenter electron delocalization indices or the electron localization function; iii) the investigation of organic and organometallic reaction mechanisms with special emphasis on the reactivity of fullerenes and endohedral metallofullerenes, and iv) the critical assessment of reactivity principles derived in the framework of the conceptual density functional theory. He is a researcher of the Institut de Químicia Computacional i Catàlisi (IQCC) and full professor of the University of Girona.

Congratulations Miquel!
