Fabiano Severo Rodembusch

Principal Investigator

I'm an associate professor at the Institute of Chemistry at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil. Since 2000, I've been developing and participating in research in the areas of organic chemistry with emphasis on organic and supramolecular photochemistry. Currently, I'm working with organic synthesis, deactivation of excited states, proton transfer, fluorescent dyes, rare-earths elements, optical sensors, photoactive organic-inorganic hybrid materials, and stationary and time-resolved electronic spectroscopy.
