member of the Sistema Nacional de Investigadores in México (SNI, level III) and receives the
maximum level of reward possible regarding his academic activities within this university.

His research interests are focused on the design of new strategies and processes to
synthesize macro- and supramolecular systems as well as porous materials. For this
purpose he is exploring the coordination and supramolecular chemistry of boron, tin and
cadmium compounds.
