Sónia Alexandra Correia Carabineiro


Sónia Carabineiro graduated in Applied Chemistry (branch of Biotechnology) at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon, Portugal (FCT-UNL) and obtained her Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering (Catalysis) in 2001 at the same University. In 2000 she was an Invited Researcher at Leiden University, The Netherlands, and Post Doctoral Researcher from 2001 to 2003 at the same University. In 2004 she got a Post Doc grant at the Centre of Structural Chemistry of the Technical University of Lisbon (CQE-IST). In 2007 she joined the Laboratory of Catalysis and Materials (LCM), part of Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM, at the Department of Chemical Engineering (DEQ) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), as an Assistant Researcher, with a Ciencia 2007 grant from Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). In 2013 she became a Principal Researcher (Investigador FCT grant) at the same lab. Her research work deals mostly with catalysis by gold nanoparticles, mixed metal oxides and nanostructured carbon materials for oxidation reactions, degradation and adsorption of air and water pollutants. More recently, she has been working in collaboration with the CQE-IST on the heterogenisation of homogenous (soluble) metal complex catalysts. She has also collaborations with other Universities of Portugal and abroad and is member of International Advisory Board of ChemCatChem journal. She is one the females reviewer in the world with more revisions done.

Research Interests Catalysis by gold Mixed metal oxides Nanostructured carbon materials Oxidation reactions (carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, alkanes, alcohols) Heterogenisation of homogeneous catalysts Catalytic carbon gasification
