Personal profile

Personal information

A. Jorge Parola received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa in 1998, after which he made a post-doc at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Fribourg, Switzerland. He is presently Full Professor at the Department of Chemistry of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, teaching inorganic chemistry and physical chemistry. He supervised or co-supervised 6 Post-doc researchers, 20 PhD (9 running) and 21 MSc students. He is co-author of 7 book chapters, 10 proceedings and over 170 papers (h-index 34, Scopus), and holds 3 patents.

His research interests are centred on supramolecular photochemistry, molecular machines, development of chromogenic materials for applications (photo-, electro- and thermochromic systems), all involving natural or designed dyes. He runs the Responsive Materials research line of the Cultural Heritage and Responsive Materials group (CHARM) at the Green Chemistry Associated Laboratory (LAQV-REQUIMTE). Main scientific achievements relate with the synthesis and photochemical characterisation of host-guest systems. A collaboration with the YDreams company led to the creation in 2010 (by YDreams) of Ynvisible, a spin-off on chromogenic materials. Major funding for research raised from national calls (4 projects as PI, team member in 23), QREN technological projects (6) and EU projects (9 projects, 1 running, local coordinator in 3).
