4 1. GENERAL INFORMATION AND SITUATION IN JANUARY PRESENTATION The Institute of Chemical and Environmental Research Josep Pascual Vila (IIQAB) deals with the research on organic molecules, specifically in subjects of environmental chemistry, bio-organic chemistry, theoretical chemistry and chemical technology related with those molecules. The Institute has developed a solid international prestige in these research fields. Among others, it should be highlighted, the development of analytical methods for detection of organic microcontaminants in environmental samples, the evaluation of toxic effects of these contaminants, the contributions to the elucidation of the transformation of the sediments of organic matter, the study of hormones and enzymatic transformations in insects, the synthesis of molecules of therapeutic interest, the chemistry of surfactants and its transformations, the transfer mechanisms of organic molecules with liposomes, the development of environmentally friendly technologies, residues treatment, research in peptides and proteins, and the theoretical study in electronic structure and the reactivity of molecules of interest in atmospheric chemistry. The Institute was constituted in 1996 to better accommodate the scientific interests of the researchers of the areas of Chemistry and Environmental Sciences of Center of Investigation and Development (CID) and to provide a greater external projection of the activities of these researchers in the CSIC. In spite of its recent creation, the IIQAB inherits the long and fruitful research tradition in organic chemistry initiated by Prof. José Pascual Vila since After finalization of his activity in the University in 1967, Prof. Pascual moved with his co-workers of CSIC into Institute of Organic Chemistry of Barcelona in CID. During many years the CID has been the referent of the CSIC Chemistry in Catalonia and of the organic chemistry research in our community. Many researchers formed in this Center have moved into relevant positions in academic institutions (Universities, CSIC) and in private sector. Recently, the groups working in IIQAB, in spite of the important heterogenity of its research lines have focussed into three important fields: the interphase Chemistry-Biology, Advanced Chemical Technologies and also Environmental Chemistry. The Institute shares the general and economic administration infrastructure, library, information and animal rearing facilities with the Institute of Molecular Biology of Barcelona. All these services are enclosed in the CID which at present is only an administration unit of CSIC. 4

6 General infrastructure Total surface and distribution. The IIQAB occupies the second and third floors of the main building of CID and one third of the basement of this building which amounts to a total surface of 2100 m 2. Likewise, it occupies about 1600 m 2 of the three floors of the secondary building of CID and three annexes with a total surface of about 1000 m 2, where the Services of Mass Spectrometry and Analysis of Dioxins are located. To this total surface of 3700 m 2, should be added the surface of the economic and administrative services, meeting rooms, library, stores and maintenance, which give joint servicing to IIQAB and Institute of Molecular Biology of Barcelona, with a surface of about 1500 m 2. Likewise, the informatics service, also common to both Institutes, occupies about 200 m 2 located below the corridor communicating both main and secondary buildings.
