The Materials for Adsorption and Catalysis Group (MAC) is devoted to develop high quality scientific research (both fundamental and applied) focusing on two main areas:

- Development of new carbon based materials and (bio)polymeric composites;

- Applications in the fields of waste valorisation, biofuels production, water treatment, heterogeneous catalysis and controlled delivery systems.

MAC researchers are integrated/collaborator members of the Research Group "Materials for Sustainability and Welness" of the Research Centre LAQV/REQUIMTE, with different backgrounds and expertise. The group has strong collaborations with Industries and Research Centres at National and International level.
