Jorge Escorihuela

Jorge Escorihuela (born in Castelló de la Plana, Spain) received his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Universitat Jaume I (Castellón, Spain) in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. Santiago V. Luis and Prof. M. Isabel Burguete. After a postdoctoral stage (2010–2014) in the Institute of Molecular Recognition and Technological Development (IDM) under the supervision of Prof. Angel Maquieira, he worked as a postdoctoral reasearcher at Wageningen University and Research in The Netherlands (2014–2016) with Prof. Zuilhof, where he studied click chemistry reactions on surfaces. Later, he moved to Universitat Politècnica de València as a Postdoctoral Researcher (2017–2018) and focused his research on the development of new polymeric membranes based on polybenzimidazol for fuel cell applications at Vicente Compañ’s research group. In 2019, he joined the Organic Chemistry Department at Universitat de València as an Assistant Professor and he became Associate Professor in 2023. His current research interests include organic synthesis, click chemistry, and computational chemistry.

Dr. Escorihuella has coauthored about 85 scientific peer-reviewed publications in high-ranking international journals, 2 book chapters, and 1 patent. He acts periodically as a reviewer for scientific agencies and for several organic chemistry and materials science journals.
