Guillermo Mínguez, a young  researcher at the ICMol , has been awarded with the “RSC Dalton Young Researchers Award”, a prize given by the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) to researchers under 27 working in the area of Inorganic Chemistry.

This prize has been awarded for his work on Solid State Chemistry, in particular, on the reactions solid-gas in non porous materials.

Guillermo Mínguez has a degree on Chemistry by the Universidad de Sevilla and a phD, also in Chemistry, by the University of Sheffield (UK). Since September 2008, he is working at ICMol under a “Juan de la Cierva” research contract, within Professor Eugenio Coronado’s group, “Research Team on Molecular Materials”.

This is the third award in his career as a young researcher. Last year he was awarded with the Gold Medal in the “European Young Chemist Award 2008” at PhD level presented at the 2nd EuCheMS Chemistry Congress in Torino (Italy). And in 2007, he was given the “Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship Award” to pursue crystallographically-oriented research.
