I've been working in research projects since my fist semester at college. My work is resumed to biodiesel research and conductor polymers applying them in solar cells to switch heavy metals from them. I'd like to teach young people the importance of chemistry to preserve our "home", because perhaps I won't be here when the critical state of the environment will be reach, then I think our duty as chemist is teach them how to avoid this.
