Introduction
Inês S. Cardoso is currently a PhD student in CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials in Chemical Engineering. She is working under the supervision of Dr. Mara G. Freire and co-supervision of Professor Dr. Armando J. D. Silvestre with the theme ''Integrated recovery process of high-values bioactive compounds from agroforest by-products using aqueous solutions of bio-based ionic liquids''. Born in March, 15th of 1993. She has completed her bachelors degree in Biotechnolgy in 2014 and her MSc in 2016 in Industrial Biotechnology, both done in the University of Aveiro.

Article
With the goal of finding sustainable solvents, novel ionic liquids (ILs) with low ecotoxicity features have been a target of research. Among these, ILs with surface-active characteristics play a significant role in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, household cleaning and other detergent industries. Most surface-active ILs reported up to date are...

The tuneable properties of surface-active ionic liquids (SAIL) and Pluronics are dramatically magnified by combining them in aqueous solutions. The thermo-controlled character of both, essential in the extraction of valuable compounds, can be fine-tuned by properly selecting the Pluronic and SAIL nature. However, further understanding of the nanosc...

In this paper, we develop a new coarse-grained model, under the MARTINI framework, for Pluronic block copolymers that is able to describe the self-assembly mechanism and reproduce experimental micelle sizes and shapes. Previous MARTINI-type Pluronic models were unable to produce realistic micelles in aqueous solution, and thus our model represents...
Chapter
A growing number of compounds resulting from human activities are continuously released into the environment. Many of these compounds may pose serious environmental threats, reinforcing the need of environmental monitoring to understand their impact on the environment and on human health and to create strategies to revert these risks. Although with...

R-phycoerythrin is a high added-value protein found in red macroalgae with several interesting properties. Despite the promissing results found when R-phycoerythrin is used as an optically active center in luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs), it still has some problems that can be attributed to the low stability of the R-phycoerythrin in presenc...

Aqueous micellar two-phase systems (AMTPS) hold a large potential for cloud point extraction of biomolecules but are yet poorly studied and characterized, with few phase diagrams reported for these systems, hence limiting their use in extraction processes. This work reports on a systematic investigation of the effect of different surface-active ion...
