Federal University of ABC

Dr. Gustavo Morari do Nascimento is a professor at the Federal University of ABC, Brazil. He obtained a Ph.D. from the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil, in 2004. Since completing a postdoctorate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, in 2008, Dr. Morari do Nascimento has been working with carbon allotropes, conducting polymers, and conducting polymer-clay nanocomposites. His current research focuses on molecular characterization of chemically modified carbon nanostructured materials with molecular magnets and organic chalcogenide compounds by using FT-Raman spectroscopy, resonance Raman, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), resonance Raman imaging, and X-ray absorption techniques at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Gustavo Morari Do Nascimento

This book presents the state-of-the-art results of synthesis, characterization, modification, and technological applications of clays, clay minerals, and materials based on clay minerals, such as polymer–clay nanocomposites and clay hybrids. It also presents some important results obtained in the broad area of clays and clay materials characterization. Moreover, this book provides a comprehensive account of polymer and biopolymer–clay nanocomposites, the use of clay as adsorption materials of industrial pollutants, the ceramic industry, and the physical–chemical aspects of aqueous dispersions of clay and clay minerals. This book is beneficial for students, teachers, and researchers who are interested in expanding their knowledge about the use of clays in a diverse range of fields, including nanotechnology, biotechnology, environmental science, industrial remediation, pharmaceuticals, and so on.
