Francisco Foubelo studied chemistry at the University of Oviedo from which he received B.S. (1984), M.S. (1986), and Ph.D. (1989) degrees. After a postdoctoral stay (1989-1991) as a Fulbright fellow at Princeton University, he moved to the University of Alicante where he became Full Professor in 2002. His research interests are focused on the development of new synthetic methodologies for the preparation of functionalized organolithium compounds. Heterofunctionalization of alkenes and the development of new synthetic methods for asymmetric synthesis related to chiral sulfinimines are recent interests.
