In that era she worked as an assistant professor in the chair of Inorganic Chemistry at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Madrid.

The outbreak of the Spanish Civil War surprised Adela in a congress in Paris, without possibility of returning to Spain to complete her thesis. With the establishment of Francoism she was purged and had to go into exile to Mexico, entering through Nuevo Laredo. She was a beneficiary of the SERE (Evacuation Services for Spanish Republicans). In Mexico, she worked as an assistant for José Giral in the School of Biological Sciences of the National Polytechnic Institute. She would stay in that school until her retirement and settling in Mexico City.
