About the Author
Rebeca Bacani has a PhD in physics and currently is a postdoc fellow in Engineering Chemistry department at Universidade de Sao Paulo College Engineering in Lorena (EEL-USP) in Brazil, former temporary professor in Material Engineering Department at EEL-USP. Currently, interests are in mesoporous nanomaterials and ceramics, inorganic nanoparticles, organics/inorganic gels, advanced X-ray based characterization with applications in catalysis and photocatalysis. Fabiane J. Trindade is based at the Department of Fundamental Chemistry of University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Dr. Trindade research experience and interests include sol-gel synthesis, characterization, assembly and properties of novel controlled organic-inorganic hybrid nanostructured materials, such as mesostructured silica, graphene, aromatic imides, yolk-shell nanoparticles and photochemistry. Mario Jose Politi is Professor of Biochemistry at the Chemistry Institute of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. His current interests are in new materials, colloid polymers, silanes, siloxanes and nanostructured colloids. Mostly in the areas of Colloids, e Surfaces and Surfactants, Photo chemistry and Photo physics and Organic Physical Chemistry. Eduardo Rezende Triboni is currently a Professor of Organic Chemistry and Supramolecular Chemistry at the Chemistry Engineering Department of the School of Engineering of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. His current interests are in chemistry of materials, colloids, naphthalimides, silsesquioxanes, nanoparticles and nanostructured colloids.
