Dr. Gustavo Morari do Nascimento has a position as a professor at the Federal University of ABC. It has strong background experience in many fields related to the characterization of advanced materials. Since his doctoral degree from the University of São Paulo (USP) in 2004 and after a period as a postdoc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 2007 to 2008, he has been working with carbon allotropes, conducting polymers, and conducting polymer-clay nanocomposites. Nowadays, his research focus is on molecular characterization of chemically modified carbon nanostructured materials with molecular magnets and organic chalcogenide compounds by using FT-Raman, Resonance Raman, SERS (surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy), resonance Raman Imaging and X-ray absorption techniques at National Synchrotron Light Laboratory.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Gustavo Do Nascimento

New two-dimensional materials based on clays and clay minerals are attracting attention for their outstanding properties that make them useful as hosts or supporting matrixes in applications such as pharmaceuticals, tissue engineering, environmental remediation, biosensors, filtration, wound dressings, drug delivery, and more. This book is a comprehensive overview of clay science and technology, focusing on synthesis, characterization, simulation, and applications. Chapters cover such topics as polymer–clay nanocomposites, the structure and properties of different clays, the use of clays for environmental remediation, and much more.
