The main objective of Dr. Suero is to catalytically generate reactive carbon species not yet explored and study their behavior towards carbon-hydrogen bonds. His goal is to discover new rules of reactivity of carbon, not only for the design and discovery of new chemical reactions, but also for its use to build molecular complexity. The group has been a pioneer in the catalytic generation of diazomethyl radicals as direct equivalents of monovalent carbine species. This discovery clearly revealed the radical dual carbohydrate behavior of the carbins, and allowed the design of different disconnection strategies for the construction of chiral centers.
