  • BS, Universidad Catolica, Lima, Peru, 1978
  • Ph.D., University of Notre Dame, 1984

Interests and Expertise

Most of my projects will involve the manipulation of air-sensitive compounds using Schlenk-ware and vacuum lines, cannula and syringe techniques, a variety of chromatographic techniques (gas, plate, column, flash) and the use of infrared and 1H, 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopies. They will also involve the synthesis of organic and inorganic ligands when necessary.
