Soledad Rubio is head of the SAC team. Her research has mainly focused on the design and synthesis of supramolecular systems with the aim of improving the economics, selectivity and yield in extraction processes. Main fields of application include the extraction of contaminants from environmental, biological and agrifood samples prior to their analysis by LC-MS, the extraction bioactives from vegetal biomass, and the removal of pollutants from environmental waters. On these topics, she has published 192 scientific articles (H index WoS: 45; normalized impact 2014-2018: 3.33; within the top 2% of scientist in Analytical Chemistry by citation impact during 2019), one monograph (Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Elsevier) and 15 book chapters. She has contributed with around 200 presentations in international and national congresses (15 invited conferences), and has broad experience in leading national and international research projects and knowledge transfer contracts. Among scientific distinctions, it is worth mentioning the invitation of the American Chemical Society to write the topic Environmental Analysis in the Biannual Reviews in two editions [Analytical Chemistry 81 (2009) 4601 and 83 (2011) 4579], and the invitation of Analytical Bioanalytical Chemistry to contribute in the special issue Female Role Models in Analytical Chemistry (2020).
