Accésit are considered minor prizes. However, you notice that you are satisfied with what you received...

Undoubtedly, it is very important for me to have won this award, because seeing that four works have been presented we have remained quite well. CAF-Elhuyar Sariak I love it. I think they serve to give a boost to production in Basque and, of course, we have to promote everything that is done in Basque, but especially in the field of science and technology. These areas are very important today and Basque is fundamental.

In no way, what you have analyzed in the book is a fashion theme. What is the purpose of this work?

When talking about designer drugs, people get the word pill. However, in these pills you can find many things, because there are many types of designer drugs, that is, not everything is ecstasy. Considering that people are a bit revolted, our main goal has been to inform people. We wanted to provide detailed and scientific information on design drugs. We also wanted the book to be accessible to everyone. On the other hand, we must not forget that the two winners are chemists and in that sense we wanted symbiosis between chemistry and design drugs. We have explained to the reader different concepts.

What treatment does the media offer to design drugs?

The media talk about many issues. When the topic is new, they provide a lot of information in a short time. Often information is given running, so what is said is not accurate, although scientific precision is very important. In our opinion, journalists do not clearly explain some scientific concepts, so readers and the public have enormous confusion among themselves. 1.
