ALEXANDRE H. PINTO, Ph.D.

Alexandre H. Pinto, also known as Alex Pinto is currently an Assistant Professor at Manhattan College (NY City), in the Dept of Chemistry & Biochemistry. Formerly, he spent two years as a Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow and Faculty Member at Ithaca College (Ithaca, NY), where he led the group for Green Chemical Synthesis of Nanomaterials.

 

Alex got his PhD in Chemistry at University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, advised by Prof. R Lee Penn, working on the synthesis of transition metal chalcogenides using microwave assisted reactions. Throughout his career, Alex has worked with the solution chemistry synthesis of transition metal oxides, selenides, and sulfides, and characterization by different techniques, such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman and Infrared Spectroscopies, Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopy.

Since starting his independent career, Alex has worked on the application of Green and Materials Chemistry concepts to solve environmental problems, such as remediation of wastewater contaminated by organic pollutants via photocatalysis and solid-liquid adsorption, and development of transition metal oxides for less expensive catalysis of organic reactions.
