LSRE-LCM at Ciência 2017 - Lisbon

July 3-5, 2017

The National Meeting with Science and Technology, Ciência 2017, was held at the Lisbon Congress Center on July 3 to 5, 2017.

This year's meeting celebrated the 20th anniversary of the creation of the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) and promoted an open debate on the main subjects. Ciência 2017 brought together researchers and participants from all sectors of society and all areas of scientific research and development.

LSRE-LCM researchers where present at this meeting showcasing their ongoing research work.

- Joaquim Faria, Catalysis and Carbon Materials: Shining Light Over Classical Concepts to Build XXI Century Solutions, Oral presentation
- José Carlos Lopes, A Novel Micro-Meso Structured Mixer Applied for Gas Hydrates Production – A Potential CCS Technology, Oral presentation
- Vitor Vilar, Novel Photoreactors for Photochemical/Photocatalytic Processes: Towards Process Intensification, Oral presentation
- Jonathan Espindola, Innovative Photoreactors to Promote the Oxytetracycline Degradation, Poster
- Pedro Ferreira Gomes, Human Serum Albumin (HSA) adsorption on a mixed-mode adsorbent: equilibrium and kinetics, Poster
- Raquel Rodrigues, Graphene-based Magnetic Nanoparticules: a dual stimuli-responsive drug release for cancer therapy, Poster
