Joan Ribas is Professor for Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Barcelona. He is well-known in the scientific community and has 30 years of teaching experience in applied and theoretical inorganic chemistry, especially coordination chemistry. He has published more than 150 publications in this scientific field and written the textbook "Quimica de coordinacion".
"With more than thirty years of experience in science and teaching, Joan Ribas aims to treat not only the traditional aspects that have shaped the field of coordination chemistry for decades, but also the modern approaches and topics like supramolecular and biocoordination chemistry, photochemistry and crystal engineering."
