Cristiano Mota e Maria João Romão, do laboratório Macromolecular Crystallography da UCIBIO no Departamento de Química da FCT NOVA, identificaram o funcionamento de uma proteína capaz de reduzir dióxido de carbono (CO2) presente na atmosfera. Os resultados publicados na revista ACS Catalysis, em colaboração com investigadores do ITQB NOVA indicam novos caminhos para resolver um dos maiores desafios atuais para a sustentabilidade do planeta: a neutralidade carbónica.


Paula Branco, researcher at LAQV and professor at the Chemistry Department - FCT NOVA, was elected the new president of the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ).


The Chemistry Department at FCT-NOVA invites you to join our celebration of the Global Women’s Breakfast, at Campus de Caparica, Portugal.
