Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group

Raúl Molina (Madrid, 1976) studied Chemical Engineering in Complutense University of Madrid (1995-2000) and received his Ph. D in 2006 (Rey Juan Carlos University) working on synthesis and application of heterogeneous Fenton-like catalysts for the treatment of phenolic aqueous solutions and industrial wastewater streams. Raúl Molina has occupied several teaching positions in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Technologies,from 2001, being an associate professor since 2009. His main research lines are focused on the application of Fenton-like advanced oxidation processes for the treatment of industrial wastewaters streams and emerging pollutants and more recently hydrogen production.
