Welcome!

Materials Chemistry Group at Federal University of Paraná

(Brazil)

GQM is headed by Prof. Aldo J. G. Zarbin.

 

Our research focuses in synthesis of nanocomposites based in different carbon nanostructures and several other materials, such as metallic nanoparticles, polymers and inorganic complexes.

 

Mostly processed as thin films, nanocomposites are applied as batteries, capacitors, catalysts, photovoltaic devices, sensors and electrochromic materials.
