Vicente L. Cebolla

Instituto de Carboquímica, Spain


Vicente L. Cebolla was born in Zaragoza, Spain, in 1960. He received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Zaragoza University, Zaragoza, Spain, in 1987, after performing his doctoral work on catalytic hydroliquefaction of coal in the French CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), at the Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse et l'Environnement in Villeurbanne and the University of Metz. Before he joined the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) as a Staff Member in 1992, he worked in research on cosmetics in Henkel Iberica's R&D Department in Barcelona. He is currently a Senior Researcher of CSIC at the Instituto de Carboquímica, where he leads the research group on separation and detection technologies. His areas of interest include theory and application of molecular fluorescence and chromatography-based techniques for analysis of complex mixtures, mostly coming from petroleum conversion or lipid-related samples. He contributed to the explanation of the effect of nonspecific interactions in fluorescent emission and to the development of fluorescence-induced methods for detecting compounds that do not contain a UV-chromophore or have poor absorption properties. He is currently involved in developing original optical detection systems from molecular environmental effects and transferring them to the petroleum industry. He was corecipient of the Richard A. Glenn Award (Division of Fuel Chemistry, American Chemical Society) in 2002.
