Scientific Interests

The adsorption of gases and vapours in porous solids aiming to study the texture, surface chemistry, and molecular sieve properties of nanoporous materials, mainly zeolites, clay based, and metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are the current scientific interests of João Pires. His work also includes the synthesis and modification of the textural and surface chemistry properties of nanoporous materials with potential use in catalysis and selective adsorption (eg. gas purification and separation) as well as the Chemical and Physical characterization of these materials. More recently, he has been studying nanoporous materials for the storage and delivery of small molecules with therapeutic effect and the Chemical-Physics that conditionates the adsorption and release of these molecules.
