I'm Antonio Palazzo, I am a laboratory technician with a Chemical Engineer’s Degree.
I am currently living in Barcelona, Spain but I am willing to relocate anywhere in Europe because my contract expired few days ago and I would like to find a new job in another country of European Union.
As you can see in my CV I am working as laboratory technician for DC Fine Chemicals (that actually is a London based chemical company but with warehouse and laboratory close to Barcelona).
In this year I gained a lot of experience on a wide range of analytical methods and techniques because my company is dedicated to the sale of a great variety of chemicals as bulk chemicals, pharmaceutical feedstock and diagnostic reagents.
I consider myself a versatile person with good analytical skills, attentive to detail and I easily adapt to new situations. I am also very curios and I like to learn different things every day.
I can also speak and write correctly and with a good level a lot of languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese.
I am available for an interview at any time, and should you require any further information then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Research Trainee Barcelona, Spain
December 2014 --- July 2015
I have carried out my Master’s Degree thesis about “Study of phthalates photodegradation by UV spectrophotometry, HPLC-DAD, HPLC-MS and chemometrics tools”, in CSIC-IDAEA, Barcelona, Spain with the professor Romá Tauler.
The aim of the study was evaluating the photodegradation of environmental pollutants by the means of UV spectrophotometry, UHPLC-MS and UHPLC-DAD. All data were analyzed with MCR-ALS algorithm using MatLab software in order to obtain the number of chemical species involved, their profiles of concentration and their UV and MS pure spectra.
Trainee Barcelona, Spain
February 2013 --- December 2013
I have carried out my Chemical Engineer’s Degree thesis about “Comparative analysis of wines by Gas Chromatography”, in EUETIB-UPC, Barcelona.
I have been analyzing in particular higher alcohols and volatile esters; although the equipment with which I am working is quite obsolete I can say that I learned a lot about gas chromatography and sample preparation (distillation, extraction, SPME)
