The Projects

The Projects

From 1990 our group has been involved in several research projects concerning Carbohydrate and Nucleoside Chemistry

Funds for the research have mainly come from the Spanish Government and from the Catalan government. We are also grateful to the University Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona) for providing us with the necessary facilities.

The experimental work has only been carried out in our laboratories at the Faculty of Chemistry in the University Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona) and it has been the result of a gratifying collaboration with a number of post-graduate and doctoral students and colleagues whose names appear in the list of references.

At present we are involved in the following project:
