  • MSc Otavio Augusto Chaves was born in Sao Paulo-Brazil (1992) and nowadays he is Professor of the Department of Chemistry at Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRRJ-Brazil).
  • He obtained his Master of Science degree in Chemistry at UFRRJ and he obtained his double graduation in Chemistry at UFRRJ and University of Coimbra (UC-Portugal).
  • He has scientific collaborations with national and international research groups (IME, USP, UFRJ, INMETRO, UERJ, UFRN, UENF, UFSM, UC and Ahalia School of Pharmacy).
  • His research focus is centered on the interaction between commercial and potential drugs with serum albumins by spectroscopic analysis (UV-Vis absorption, circular dichroism, STD-NMR, zeta potential, FTIR-ATR, steady-state, time-resolved, 3D and synchronous fluorescence) and computational methods (molecular docking, molecular dynamics and semi-empirical calculations), as well as the determination of photophysics and photochemistry properties of synthetic compounds.
