The State of the Art of Materials Research in México
The application of scientific knowledge to the modification and characterization of materials in Mexico has a long story. In fact, since ancient times, native mexican cultures had a highly sofisticated technologyy for ceramics and construction materials. Some recent work has shown that some of the cultures of Mesoamerica had indeed metallurgical technology, producing even mechanical alloys and the extensive use of some metals. The main metals for the old mexicans were gold and silver. They did not master the steel.
