 Mario J. Molina Biography

Professor Molina was born in Mexico City in 1943. He holds a Chemical Engineer degree (1965) from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, a postgraduate degree (1967) from the University of Freiburg, Germany, and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry (1972) from the University of California, Berkeley.

He is a pioneer and one of the main scientists in the world dedicated to atmospheric chemistry. He was co-author with Frank Sherwood Rowland, of the 1974 original article predicting the depletion of the ozone layer as a direct consequence of the emissions of certain industrial gases, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), earning them the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Likewise, his research and publications on the subject lead to the United Nations Montreal Protocol, the first international treaty that has faced with effectiveness an environmental problem of global scale and anthropogenic origin.

Professor Molina and his research team published a series of articles between 1976 and 1986 that identified the chemical properties of compounds that play an essential role in the breakdown of the stratospheric ozone layer. Subsequently they demonstrated in a laboratory the existence of a new class of chemical reactions that occur in the surface of ice particles including those that are present in the atmosphere. They also proposed and demonstrated in the lab a new sequence of catalystic reactions that explain a major part of the destruction of the ozone in the polar stratosphere.

MolinaHe was Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) between 1989 and 2004; held research and teaching positions at the Universidad Autónoma de México between 1967 and 1968; also at the University of California, Irvine between 1975 and 1979 and at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) between 1982 and 1989.

Molina is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine in the United States and for eight years he was one of the 21 scientists that served on President Barack Obama´s Committee of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST); he also previously served on President Bill Clinton´s PCAST.

Likewise, he is a distinguished member of the Vatican´s Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the National College of Mexico, Mexican Academy of Science and the Mexican Academy of Engineering, among others. For his contribution to science he has received numerous awards including over 40 honorary degrees, the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement in 1983, the UNEP-Sasakawa Environment Prize in 1995, the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the United Nations Champion of the Earth Award.

Currently, he is professor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), with a joint appointment in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, one of the leading research institutions on phenomenon’s associated with climate change.

In Mexico, he presides since 2005 a Center that carries his name, which conducts research and promotion of public policies. The Center focuses on strategic studies on energy and environment, particularly in the field of climate change and air quality.

Mario Molina has researched the chemistry of atmospheric pollution in the lower atmosphere and is involved in interdisciplinary works, collaborating with experts in order to confront the problem of air quality deterioration in urban areas, contributing with important input to the knowledge and solution of atmospheric pollution in Mexico City´s Metropolitan Area.

Recently, Professor Molina has dedicated great part of his work to science-policy issues related to the climate change problem, and has promoted global actions in favor of sustainable development inclusive of vigorous economic growth.

Prof. Molina is married to Guadalupe Álvarez and mainly resides in Mexico City.
