Clara Gomes is an Assistant Researcher at Laboratório Associado para a Química Verde (LAQV) at FCT NOVA, in the Molecular Synthesis Group @ the Organometallic and Coordination Chemistry lab. Since November 2018, she is also responsible for the Single Crystal X-Ray Crystallographic Service, with duties of implementing and managing the Structure Determination Service and the X-Ray facility at FCT NOVA.
Her research spans the areas of synthetic coordination/organometallic chemistry, whenever possible employing green chemistry synthetic methodologies, such as mechanochemistry, catalysis, and supramolecular chemistry, in the synthesis of flexible metal-organic frameworks and cages for structure elucidation of important non-crystalline target guests, such as oils, liquids or amorphous solids.
Citation metrics in Scopus (ID 24343503400) indicate 71 articles with citation data, 1 of them as corresponding author (>750 citations and h-index 16, May 2022), 2 book chapters, 1 encyclopedia entry and 2 datasets (as corresponding author), 2 patents, 25 oral communications (11 invited and 8 co-authored) and co-authored 53 poster communications. She is co-PI of a FCT project (PTDC/QUI-QIN/31585/2017) and Core Group (Gender Balance Coordinator and Grant Awarding Coordinator), Communications Team and a WG1 member of COST Action CA18112.
