Yolanda Diñeiro García

Educational background

Research interests

She joined Prof. Paulino Tuñón Blanco's group in 2002. In 2003 she was awarded a graduate fellowship (FPU) aimed at obtaining her PhD degree. During the following years she probed the predictive capacity of DFT calculations applied to the design of acrylic-based molecularly imprinted  polymers (MIPs). She tested the validity of the theorectical calculations in the lab by photopolymerizing  a MIP for homovanillic acid that was coupled to a voltammetric tranducer through the spin coating technique.  The sensor was applied to a real sample. 

She gained her PhD degree with the Dissertation entitled "Computational design of affinity receptors based on molecularly imprinted polymers for electrochemical sensors"
