Biography

- João Rocha (born 1962) is Full Professor of Chemistry and Director of the University of Aveiro Institute of Materials (CICECO, ca. 380 people), the largest Materials Science Institute in Portugal. João is member of the European Academy of Sciences (EURASC) and of the Lisbon Academy of Sciences (Chemistry) (restricted to 13 Chemists), and Fellow of both the Royal Society of Chemistry and the ChemPubSoc Europe. He has received the Madinabeitia-Lourenço award from the Real Sociedad Española de Química, the prize Ferreira da Silva (Portuguese Chemical Society). In 2005, he received the prize for Scientific Excellence from the Portuguese Science Foundation and in 1990 a prize from Emmanuel College, Cambridge. In 2012-15 he was member of the National Science and Technology Council (advising the Prime Minister). ... - João got his Ph.D. in 1990 from the Department of Chemistry, Cambridge University, UK, working on solid-state NMR of kaolinite and related materials (supervisor Prof. Jacek Klinowski). This was followed by a one year post-doc (NMR of zeolite-type materials) in the same group. He has been in the Chemistry Department, Aveiro University, since mid 1991. In 1999 he was promoted to Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. ... - He has published ca. 480 SCI papers and 24 book chapters, with over 15,000 citations (h-index 58), and 4 patent applications, and gave over 200 invited talks at conferences (mostly international). He has supervised 40 post-docs and 25 PhDs. He has coordinated over two dozens projects (6 European), and consulted for industry. ... - He was Chair of the 'Commission on Inorganic and Mineral Structures' and consultant of the 'Commission on NMR Crystallography and Related Methods' of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). He was Chair of the editorial board of European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry and on editorial board of Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and is member of the editorial boards of Chemistry - a European Journal, and Solid State Sciences, and editor of the RSC Nanoscience and Nanotechnology book series. ... - He has been a member of assessment committees of the European Research Council Advanced and Starting Grants, IBM prize Portugal, LABEX (France), Portuguese Science Foundation (grants and research institutions), and has also reviewed projects and assessed research groups for France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, UK, Austria. He is regularly called upon by the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) to coordinate the panel awarding post-doc and Ph.D. grants in Materials Science and Engineering, and in 2003 he headed the panel (of foreign scientists) that evaluated the Portuguese Materials Science and Engineering research groups. He has been a regular referee for the leading journals in Chemistry, Materials Science and NMR, such as Angewandte Chemie, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Advanced Materials, Chemistry of Materials, Journal of Magnetic Resonance and Solid State NMR. ... - SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS For 20 years João's group has been interested in the synthesis of framework microporous and layered materials (ca. 100 novel Ti, Zr, V, Nb, Cu, Sn, Ca, Y, Ce and other Ln silicates - AV and AM materials), in the form of powders, membranes and films. We have explored applications in luminescence, catalysis, gas sorption and separation, ion exchange, magnetism and as MRI contrast agents. We are also much interested in the synthesis, structure and properties of Metal Organic Frameworks of transition metals and lanthanides. The group is particularly strong in powder XRD and solid-state NMR spectroscopy, and has pioneered the development of certain techniques for the study of quadrupolar (I>1/2) nuclei, and 1H. Recently, we developed interest in the area of biologically-relevant materials, in particular materials to treat hyperkalemia (excess K+ in serum), for slow release of drug molecules (NO), new MRI contrast agents and nanostructures for bimodal (MRI, optical) imaging. Nano-thermometry and nano-heather-thermometer platforms are also a present interests.
