João Pires


The adsorption of gases and vapours in porous solids aiming to study the texture, surface chemistry, and molecular sieve properties of nanoporous materials, mainly zeolites, clay based, and metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are the current scientific interests of João Pires. His work also includes the synthesis and modification of the textural and surface chemistry properties of nanoporous materials with potential use in catalysis and selective adsorption (eg. gas purification and separation).

More recently, he has been studying nanoporous materials for the storage and delivering of small molecules with therapeutic effect.

He was member of Adsorfoam S.A. (president of general assembly). This "start-up" was created in 2007 and intends to produce filtering media, based in adsorbent materials supported in polymers, to improve the indoor air quality.

He co-authored 140 publications in scientific indexed journals, having more than 2200 citations and an h-index of 27 (Scopus database).
