He is editor of the journals Open Chemistry and Molecules (Organometallic Chemistry) and co-author of eleven chapter books and over hundred chemistry articles in international journals. His research interests are focused on organometallic catalysis, asymmetric organocatalysis, material sciences, carbocatalysis, and green chemistry. Diego Alonso is the Director of the research group "Enantioselective Catalysis in Organic Synthesis" and member of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry and the Swedish Chemical Society.
