(Photo)chemistry Reactivity Group


Julia Pérez Prieto


Dra. Pérez-Prieto is Full Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Valencia. She is the Valencia coordinator of the “Sustainable Chemistry” Master and Doctorate programmes (sustainablechemistryval.com) at the University of Valencia, as well as the interuniversity coordinator of the “Experimental and Industrial Organic Chemistry” Master and Doctorate programmes (masterenorganica.com); both of these are official interuniversity PhD programmes. Prof. Pérez-Prieto is also Head of the Photochemistry Reactivity Group at the University of Valencia

Research Interests of the (Photo)Chemistry Reactivity Group

  • Photophysical properties of molecular, macromolecular, and supramolecular photoactive systems
  • Synthesis of photocatalytic systems
  • Photoinduced transformations of semiconducting and metallic nanoparticles
  • Studies of the potentiall application of the photoactive systems in sensing, light-filtering, and photocatalysis, among others.


The group’s research work in the last five years

The research in the group of Prof Julia Pérez-Prieto is focused on the design, synthesis, and study of the photophysical properties of functional inorganic nanoparticles dispersible in organic or aqueous solvents.

For the last five years, Prof Pérez-Prieto’s  group has been working on semiconducting nanoparticles (CdSe, CdSe/ZnS) and plasmonic metal NPs (AuNP,AgNP). In addition, more recently they have also been working on upconversion NPs (NaYF4:Yb,Er) and on the synthesis of perovskite nanoparticles, such as nanoparticles with the CH3NH3PbBr3 formula. The group has learned how to prepare and stabilise these nanoparticles as solid and colloidal solutions, gaining experience in their functionalisation and their performance in sensing, photocatalysis, bioimaging, therapy, and luminiscent devices.

Currently, Prof Pérez-Prieto’s  group is pursuing the preparation of more complex structures (multifunctional systems) based either on these materials or new types of photoactive nanoparticles.
