Professor Ana Flávia Nogueira (UNICAMP), B-MRS member, joined this year the advisory boards of two renowned journals in the field of Materials, both from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). These are the Journal of Materials Chemistry A (impact factor = 11.301), where the Brazilian scientist is the only representative from Latin America, and Journal of Materials Chemistry C (impact factor = 7.059), where Professor Ana Flávia and Professor Carlos Graeff, also a B-MRS member, are the only scientists from Latin American institutions.
The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has prepared an online collection of articles by Brazilian authors in celebration of the XVIII B-MRS Meeting (Balneário Camboriú, September 22-26, 2019). The Royal Society of Chemistry is a supporter of this edition of B-MRS’s annual event.
Titled Materials and Nano Research in Brazil, the collection brings together 55 articles published in RSC journals between 2017 and 2019. All selected articles are open access until October 15, 2019.
The collection is available at www.rsc.li/brazil-mrs-2019
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.
