Universidade Federal do ABC

Dr. Gustavo Morari do Nascimento has a position as professor at Federal University of ABC. It has strong experience in many fields related to characterization of nanomaterials by using spectroscopic techniques associated to microscopic resolution. It obtained a doctoral degree from University of São Paulo (USP) on 2004 writing a thesis about spectroscopic characterization of nanocomposites formed by conducting polymers and clays. Afterwards, it spent on 2007/2008 a post-doctoral degree at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the resonance Raman study of double-walled carbon nanotubes doped with halogens under guidance of the legendary Mildred S. Dresselhaus. Back to Brazil, it has spent three years (2009-2011) at Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) working with synthesis of nanostructured carbon modified with molecular magnets. Nowadays, his research focus is on 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.
