Luis Manuel León
Senior Research Associate
Prof. Luis M. León Isidro (male) is the head of Macromolecular Chemistry research group and, since the 80´s, his research has focused in the field of polymers and polymeric materials, covering different aspects such as studies about polymerization kinetics of different monomers and polymer properties both in solution and in solid state. In recent years his interest has focused on the development of new polymer based materials that can act as sensors or actuators. It is noteworthy his activity in the field of piezoelectric polymers and shape memory polymers. He has published numerous articles in scientific journals and has conducted more than 30 research projects, acting as principal investigator in most of them. He has also supervised 22 PhD Thesis. He is currently associated with BCMaterials, an excellence research centre and belongs to its scientific committee acting as coordinator of research related to polymers.
