Five selected publications
  • Margarida M. Antunes, Sérgio Lima, Auguste Fernandes, Maria F. Ribeiro, David Chadwick, Klaus Hellgardt, Martyn Pillinger, Anabela A. Valente, “One-pot hydrogen production and cascade reaction of furfural to bioproducts over bimetallic Pd-Ni TUD-1 type mesoporous catalysts”, Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, 237 (2018) 521-537. DOI: 10.1016/j.apcatb.2018.06.00. IF= 11.70.

In this work, all the catalytic studies were carried out by M. M. A. Part of the  characterisation techniques, namely X-ray diffraction (XRD), inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP) and temperature-programmed reduction with hydrogen (TPR-H2) were also carried out by M. M. A. Collaborations with different institutions were established for the synthesis of the materials which were prepared at Imperial College in London and for the quantification of the acid properties which were determined at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon. Catalytic studies with the different synthetic approaches used (with mono- and bimetallic materials) combined with the acid and reduction properties were crucial for the understanding of the reaction mechanism.

IF=5.37.

 

In this work, the materials synthesis and catalytic studies were carried out by M. M. A. A collaboration with a different institution was required for acid properties measurements, which helped understand the influence of material properties on the catalytic reactions. Improved selectivity of the bioproducts was managed by using materials, which were strategically prepared via impregnation of nanocrystaline Zr-Beta into a TUD-1 type mesoporous matrix, or, alternatively, using a mesoporous version of Zr-beta. The materials enhanced the acid sites accessibility and facilitated internal diffusion.

IF=11.70.

 

This work is an example where complex chemical reactions are integrated in one-pot synthesis, using a multifunctional catalyst. The idea was to prepare eco-friendly heterogeneous catalysts in terms of composition (e.g. zirconium instead of tin), and an inorganic mesoporous oxide matrix of the type TUD-1 was used for the incorporation of Zr, being advantageously prepared via a green, low-cost and non-surfactant templating routes.

This work was internationally selected by J. Evans for Technology news, “Graphene catalyst: Wonder material makes wonder biofuel catalyst”, Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, 8 (2014) 301. DOI: 10.1002/bbb.1492. It involved three different groups of CICECO. It deals with carbon-based materials. The carbon materials have the advantages of being metal-free, stable, cheap, and recyclable, contributing for green and sustainable catalytic transformations. A partially reduced graphene oxide prepared via functionalisation on both sides of the carbon sheets, and was very active, selective and stable for the production of alkylfufuryl ethers and ethyl levulinate from Hmf.

Review in which I was a co-author. This review followed a work in collaboration with the company Merck. It focused on ionic liquids used as catalyst and/or solvents for the acid catalysed hydrolysis/dehydration of saccharides to furanic aldehydes, due to their ability for solubilizing polysaccharides (important for process intensification).

PEDAGOGICAL ACTIVITIES
  • Since Septmeber 2018, I am co-supervisor with Doctor Anabela Valente of a student (Diogo Falcão) of Integrated Master´s in Chemical Engineering; project entitled “isomerization of sugars in the presence of heterogeneous catalysts” at the Univeristy of Aveiro.
  • Has been invited assistant in the training of young researchers in Integrated Master´s in Chemical Engineering and PhD students) at the Univeristy of Aveiro, with special focus in the synthesis and characterisation of materials and/or catalytic studies of biomass conversion. As a result I was co-author with those students of SCI papers (indicated in the publication list) which made part of the students theses. Specifically, three students in the integrated master in chemical engineering and one PhD student: Joana P. Abrantes (publication 14-2013), Jacinto M. Veiga (publication 15-2014), Manuel T. Pereira (publication 22-2016),   Andreia F. Silva (publication 28-2017, 31-2018, 33-2019 and 34-2019).
  • Contributed to other two PhD thesis in the scope of catalytic studies inherent to the investigation group based on MOFs; Ricardo F. Mendes (publications 21-2015 and 25-2016), and Ana D. F. Firmino (publication 27-2017). In these works, it was investigated the alcoholysis of epoxides into b-alkoxy alcohols and the acetalisation/ketalisation of aldehydes and ketones (for the production of flavours and drugs).
