Professor Oswaldo Luiz Alves (IQ – Unicamp), a B-MRS member, is one of the corresponding authors of an article selected to compose a thematic collection of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), commemorating the International Year of the Periodic Table. The collection, which can be accessed here, brings together 55 papers on low carbon dimensional systems and their applications, published between 2017 and 2019 in some RSC journals.
The paper signed by Professor Alves with seven other researchers from Brazil reports the toxicity and nanobiointeractions of a functionalized graphene oxide with respect to human blood components. The article was originally published in 2018 in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B and has just been featured in the commemorative collection, which is available in open access mode.
