I am Chemist with pos-doc in the area.

I teach Chemistry for students of engeneering.

During this YIC, there is a petition asking the Pope to proclaim the Blessed Francisco de Paula Castelló Aleu I as Patron of Professionals of the Area of Chemistry.

Francisco was a Chemist who loved the Cremistry. We was shot in 1936. Moments before his death, he wrote a farewell letter leaving his booklet of chemical inventions such as inheritance and suggesting chemical experiments.

He was beatified in 2001.
