Eder J Lenardao
Prof. E.J. Lenardao has pioneered studies on green procedures to prepare organochalcogen compounds (sulfur, selenium and tellurium-containing). He has made major contributions in the synthesis of vinyl chalcogenides and the chemical modification of natural occurring compounds by including selenium and sulfur in their structures. Some results of his studies were published in prestigious journals and contributed to the prospection of many boosted antioxidant semi-synthetic molecules. Since 2007, Prof Lenardao is a researcher of The Brazilian Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and a Member of the International Board of the Selenium and Sulfur Redox and Catalysis Network.. Currently, studies on new chalcogen-containing reduced risk insecticides and antibiotics are among his research interests.
