Universidade Federal do ABC

Dr. Gustavo Morari do Nascimento is a professor at the Federal University of ABC, Brazil. He has strong experience in many fields related to the spectroscopic and microscopic characterization of nanomaterials. He obtained a doctoral degree from the University of São Paulo (USP) in 2004 with a thesis on spectroscopic characterization of nanocomposites formed by conducting polymers and clays. He spent 2007–2008 working on a post-doctoral degree at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the resonance Raman study of double-walled carbon nanotubes doped with halogens under the guidance of the legendary Mildred S. Dresselhaus. Back in Brazil, Dr. Morari do Nascimento spent three years (2009–2011) at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) working with the synthesis of nanostructured carbon modified with molecular magnets. Currently, his research focus is on using different spectroscopic techniques for molecular characterization of chemically modified, carbon-nanostructured materials and polymer nanocomposites. He employs Resonance Raman and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) coupled to microscopy techniques added to X-ray absorption techniques at the National Synchrotron Light Laboratory in his investigation.

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.
