Also his interest areas are the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds (pyrroles and pyridines) and in the protection of α-aminoacids for the peptide synthesis. Also he is applying the green chemistry methodologies for the synthesis of useful heterocyclic compounds. Now he is in Spain (from october 20, 2010), in the Universidad de Castilla, la Mancha, at his Campus in Ciudad Real and he is joined the graduate program of Sustainable Chemistry, within he is developing his thesis under the supervision of Dr Antonio de la Hoz Ayuso to obtain his Ph D in organic chemistry and sustainable chemistry.
