I am chemist from Universidad Nacional de Colombia. My main objective in the IYC 2011 is show how chemistry involves all our activities, since the most comun until the most specialized. I work with flavor chemistry, in tropical fruits. I study the compounds responsable for aroma and how they change during ripening process.
