studied chemistry at the University of Zaragoza. In 1990 he completed his Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. Serrano and in 1991 he joined the Escuela Universitaria Politécnica de Huesca as lecturer of chemistry. In 1993 he spent time at the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven studying processing technologies for optoelectronic liquid crystal materials. His main research interests lie in the synthesis and properties of liquid crystalline polymers.

Processible, molecularly ordered metal-containing systms result when metallomesogens, liquid crystalline systems containing a metal atom, are integrated into the structure of a plymer (see Figure). The structural design of metallomesogenic polymers is reviewed and the potential applications of these interesting materials discussed.
