The agreement with the University of Oxford, UK, aims at encouraging academic, scientific and technological cooperation between researchers from Oxford and from the State of São Paulo, Brazil, through the funding of joint research projects.
This proposal is concerned with the investigation of plasmonic metal nanoparticles (NPs) supported on semiconductors and its applications in photocatalysis, especially hydrogen generation by water splitting. We aim to kick-start this new collaboration by combining the acknowledged synthesis capability of Dr. Pedro Camargo group on shape and size controlled metal nanoparticles with the c...
This collaboration will bring together the expertise of two teams from the University of Oxford and the University of São Paulo to seed research projects for novel solutions for the development of renewable energy. The focus will be on fluid-kinetic energy systems, wind and hydrokinetic turbines, and their integration with gas in transforming our energy matrix. The principal outputs of ...
The technological competence of the Brazilian sugar and alcohol industry is globally recognized. However, scientific and technological research are still needed to improve the recovery of the energy contained in ethanol production by-products. From the energy that produced from sugar cane, 40% are in the form of ethanol but the bagasse and the vinasse could result in a surplus of 31 % a...
Brazilian biodiversity has proved a powerful source of small bioactive molecules, which are valuable lead compounds for the development of useful therapeutics. Based ín these aspects, biodiversity conservation and restoration have been high priorities for ... (AU)
