Joaquin Perez Pariente.
Ph. D. Degree in Chemistry in 1984. Since 1986, researcher at the Institute of Catalysis and Petroleum Chemistry of CSIC, Spain.
Research Interests: Synthesis, characterization and catalytic performance of microporous molecular sieves (zeolites and aluminophosphates) and ordered mesoporous materials. Design of rational strategies for the control of the acidity of zeolites. Study of the interactions between zeolites and occluded structure directing agents for enhancing the catalytic properties of these materials. Metal-substituted (Ti in particular) molecular sieves for selective oxidations. Design of zeolite materials for improving catalytic performance in hydrocarbon transformations. Development of natural zeolite-based materials for fluoride removal from drinking waters. Since 2002, activity in the study and teaching of the history of chemistry.
