Universidade Federal do ABC

Dr. Gustavo Morari do Nascimento has a position as a professor at the Federal University of ABC. He has strong experience in many fields related to the characterization of nanomaterials by using spectroscopic techniques associated with microscopic resolution. He obtained a doctoral degree from the University of São Paulo (USP) in 2004 writing a thesis about the spectroscopic characterization of nanocomposites formed by conducting polymers and clays. Afterward, in2007/2008 he received 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. After returning to Brazil, he has spent three years (2009-2011) at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) working on the synthesis of nanostructured carbon modified with molecular magnets. Nowadays, his research focus is on the molecular characterization of modified carbon nanostructured materials and polymer nanocomposites by using different spectroscopic techniques. Resonance Raman and SERS (surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy) coupled to microscopy techniques added to X-ray absorption techniques at National Synchrotron Light Laboratory have been the main techniques employed in the investigation.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Gustavo Morari Do Nascimento

This book presents the state-of-the-art results of characterization of clays, clay minerals and ceramic materials based on clay minerals. The main goal of this work is to contribute to the rationalization of some important results obtained in the open area of clays and clay materials characterization. Moreover, this book also provides a comprehensive account on polymer and biopolymer-clay nanocomposites, use of clay as adsorption materials for industrial pollutants, ceramic materials in cultural heritage and physical-chemistry aspects of clay and clay minerals aqueous dispersions. This book will be beneficial for students, teachers and researchers of many areas who are interested to expand their knowledge about clays and its derivates in the fields of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Environmental Science, Industrial Remediation, Cultural Heritage, etc.
