Highlights

The Biochemical Engineering Lab at UCIBIO in the Chmistry Department, led by Maria Reis, is one of the partners of the European Project YPACK that aims to scale up and validate two innovative food packaging solutions based on polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) with active properties and passive barrier to reduce food waste by prolonging food shelf life. 

The Biomolecular Engineering Lab at FCT-NOVA, led by Cecília Roque, showed that gelatin can be more than food. For the first time, it was shown an example of soft matter in artificial olfaction, where engineered gelatin materials combined with artificial intelligence tools were used to mimic the sense of olfaction. The results of this research work are published in the scientific journal Materials Today Bio - Effect of film thickness in gelatin hybrid gels for artificial olfaction.

Gastronomic Science researchers from the Chemistry Department at FCT NOVA participated in the 5th International Sea Urchin Festival. This international festival, organized by Mafra Town Hall, joined gastronomy to science, and took place from March 29 to April 7, in Ericeira.

Ana Aguiar Ricardo, President of the Chemistry Department at FCT NOVA and Full Professor, was elected the new President of the EuChemS Division of Green and Sustainable Chemistry (DGSC).

On February 12, 2019, at 9:00 am, researchers from the Chemistry Department at FCT-NOVA invite you to join their celebration of the Global Women’s Breakfast, in the Ágora Room at FCT NOVA.

Foram 140 alunos de várias escolas secundárias da região de Almada que deram corpo aos elementos químicos da Tabela Periódica, para celebrar a abertura oficial do Ano Internacional da Tabela Periódica dos Elementos Químicos.

Get to know DQ

DQ

The Department of Chemistry, is a permanent organic unity of the Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT / UNL), devoted to teaching, and scientific research and to provide services in areas of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering.

The Chemistry Department (DQ), Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa , founded in 1981, has recognized market implementation of education and employment, particularly so because of the novelty and specificity introduced by the course in Chemistry with which teaching at the School of Chemistry began in 1981.
