Francisco Montilla Jiménez

Francisco Montilla is Professor of the Physical Chemistry Department at the University of Alicante.

His doctoral thesis centres on the study of the electrochemical reactivity of aromatic compounds from a fundamental point of view, as well as the design, manufacturing and application of electrodes for the elimination of toxic compounds from waste water: doped tin oxide electrode, electrodes based on Cu-Co compounds, diamond doped with Boron, etc.

His thesis was awarded the Extraordinary Doctorate Prize as well as the Young Researchers Prize from the RSEQ's Electrochemistry Specialist Group. After finishing his thesis, he gained a Juan de la Cierva contract from the Ministry of Education and Science and joined the Molecular and Cellular Biology Institute at the Miguel Hernández University, where he worked on the study of conjugate polymers and their possible uses in organic electronic devices such as OLEDs, sensors or photovoltaic cells.

In 2007, he rejoined the UA as a contracted Ramón y Cajal researcher, where he manufactured hybrid materials based on sol-gel matrices and conductive polymers with a range of uses: energy storage and the development of sensors and biosensors, etc.

He has undertaken research stays at the University of St Andrews, United Kingdom, the University of Ferrara (Italy) and the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne (Switzerland). He is the author of more than 40 papers or book chapters and holds one patent for the development of biomimetic electrochemical sensors.
