María I. Guijarro Gil, Associate Professor
Dr. M. Isabel Guijarro, Associated Professor-Contract of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the Complutense University of Madrid. She has been a lecturer in the Department since 1999. From 1989 to 1996 she first worked on her M.Sc. thesis obtaining her diploma in Chemistry (Industrial Chemistry) in 1992 and later on her doctoral thesis on the development and optimisation of a sulphur silicate for the elimination of mercury. Technological aspects of a process for the manufacture, in a semi-pilot plant, of sulphurous materials for the elimination of mercury from gas streams were developed, based on the impregnation by polysulphides and the subsequent drying of national or lightly treated silicates, tending to replace the materials in use more efficiently and at a lower cost. The research was carried out at the Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry of the CSIC.
