Currículo Resumido

OC Monteiro is graduated in Chemical Engineering from the University of Oporto (1994) and she was a lecturer at Madeira University (2004-2007) where she obtained a Scientific and Pedagogical Teaching post-degree. She completed a PhD degree in Chemistry from the University of Aveiro in 2003. Subsequently she has been a post-doc, until 2007, in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (DQB/FCUL). She was a Ciência2007 Assistant Researcher (2008-2012) in the Centre of Chemistry and Biochemistry (CQB/FCUL). From 2013 to 2015 she was assistant professor fixed term contract (FCUL). Since June 2015 she is a FCT investigator in CQB-FCUL

Scientific Interests

Design, synthesis and application of semiconductor nanocrystalline based systems:

-Development of new methodologies for the synthesis of oxides and sulphides nanocrystalline materials as nanopowders and thin films to be used as photocatalysts and modified electrodes;

- Correlation between the preparation methods and the exhibited properties of the nanocrystalline materials.

- Functionalization of metal oxide nanomaterials (nanotubes and nanoparticles) by metal doping and organic molecules hybridization for catalytic, biosensor and drug carriers.

- Catalytic performance evaluation of crystalline nanomaterials on persistent pollutants photo and photo electrochemical assisted degradation processes.

- Pollutant molecules - photocatalyst physical and chemical interactions.

- Multiple steps (adsorption and photocatalysis) processes for pollutants degradation.
