Scientific Interests

AREA OF SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY

Inorganic Chemistry: Polyoxometalate based materials, in particular lanthanopolyoxometalate organic-inorganic hybrid materials and nanostructured materials. Coordination chemistry of second and third row transition metals and the lanthanides.

Raman spectroscopy: Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) for the study of metal nanoparticle assemblies with relevance in trace analysis and biodetection.

 

DOMAIN OF SPECIALIZATION

Research was developed on the coordination chemistry of aromatic ambidentate ligands (such as picolinates and nicotinates) with second and third row transition metals and the lanthanides. The use of derivatised [60]fullerene ligands in the coordination to lanthanides was also explored. The preparation of new polyoxometalates was studied associated to its use as ligands in d and f metal complexes. The use of polyoxometalates as oxidation catalysts was investigated.

[Chem. Commun., 2004, 2656]

 

[Chem. Commun., 2006, 2953]

 

Lanthanopolyoxometalates were used as building units to make luminescent nanosized materials, including film assemblies and polyoxometalate-anion-pillared layered double hydroxides.

Raman spectroscopy, SERS in particular, was used for the investigation of the adsorption modes and orientation of molecules on metal nanoparticle surfaces.

 

PRESENT RESEARCH INTERESTS

Polyoxometalates have been used as inorganic components in the construction of hybrid organic-inorganic functional materials, the preparation of new polyoxometalate-lanthanide-organic systems has been achieved.

 

[Eur. J. Inorg. Chem., 2009, 5088]

 

The incorporation of organic-inorganic hybrid compounds, based on lanthanopolyoxometalates, into nanosized SiO2 has been explored for the preparation of photoluminescent materials. The association of the polyoxometalate/SiO2 core/shell nanoparticles to specific antibodies, for the use as luminescent biomarkers, is under investigation.

 

[J. Mater. Chem., 2010, 3313]

 

The preparation of new lanthanopolyoxometalate based nanocomposites is under investigation using substrates such as graphene, polymers or polysaccharides.

Teaching Activity

AREA OF TEACHING ACTIVITY

Teaching at the Chemistry Department of the University of Aveiro has been one of the main activities in the last twenty years. The subjects have varied from General Chemistry to Inorganic Chemistry and Heterogeneous Catalysis, both in theoretical and laboratorial teaching. The supervising of final year undergraduate Projects has also been done every year.

Local coordination at the University of Aveiro of the European Master Programme in Materials Science, from the Erasmus Mundus program, was done in the period 2006-2008.
