Abstract

This project is included in the request for a Research Internships Abroad (BEPE), as the Scientific Initiation Scholarship awarded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), under the FAPESP process 2017 / 09492-4. The possibility of developing research activities in dual dependency laboratories (Universidad Nacional del Litoral and CONICET) will strengthen scientific and technological cooperation between the research systems belonging to both countries (CONICET-Argentina and FAPESP-Brazil). agreements (July 2016) to promote scientific results of international relevance. This research project is related to the development of electrochemical sensors composite electrodes consisting of graphite / paraffin-modified carbon nanotubes functionalized several walls (FMWCNTs) printing molecular polymers (MIP). This method, low cost, is directed to the analysis of certain compounds, for example xylose and arabinose in the hydrolyzate of sugarcane bagasse from the second generation ethanol, contributing to improvement of production efficiency even. The BEPE will generate an important collaboration between researchers, where Professor Dr. Maria Nelida Kneeteman the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL), and member of the Coast Institute of Applied Chemistry Institute (IQAL) of CONICET, will serve as a research internship supervisor. Equipment Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) of PHENOM WORLD Prox, Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) AGILENT Spectrometer and FT-IR Perkin Elmer, located in the CONICET, allowed a solid characterization, so little seen electrochemical work.
