VETRA among the most downloaded articles from the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids

FAPESP highlights the relevance of VETRA technologies and our scientific productions in one of the most important international magazines in the field of glass

Three studies carried out within the scope of the Center for Teaching, Research and Innovation in Glass (CeRTEV) are among the most downloaded in 2020 in the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, a journal of the traditional Elsevier publishing house in the areas of physics, chemistry and science of vitreous and amorphous materials.

The 2018 article “Updated definition of glass-ceramics” is the most downloaded in 2020. Among its authors is Edgar Dutra Zanotto, coordinator of CeRTEV, a FAPESP Research, Innovation and Diffusion Center (CEPID) based at Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar). The study also ranks as the second most cited last year.

The article “The glassy state of matter: Its definition and ultimate fate”, published in 2017 and which also has Zanotto as one of the authors, is the second most downloaded since the periodical's creation and is also among the top ten in 2020.

While these two publications are part of a theoretical perspective, of definitions about the nature of vitreous and glass-ceramic materials, the third highlighted article by CeRTEV deals with a technological innovation, Biosilicate, a bioactive glass-ceramic. Entitled “Biosilicate® - a multipurpose, highly bioactive glass-ceramic. In vitro, in vivo and clinical trials”, the article has among the authors, in addition to Zanotto, four other CeRTEV researchers: Murilo Crovace, Oscar Peitl, Marina Souza and Clever Chinaglia.
