Fields of Scholarship and Research Interests

Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry by the State University of Campinas

In 1975, he participated in the pioneering implementation of flow injection analysis to real assays, a historic moment in the progress of Analytical Chemistry. During his career, his research activities have then focused on the conceptual, methodological and applicative developments of novel flow-based strategies for large-scale analysis of agro-industrial, pharmaceutical and environmental samples. As an international recognition for CENA-USP, the VII International Conference on Flow Analysis was held in Brazil (1997) with Prof. Zagatto acting as chairman of the event.

At CENA-USP, he was vice-director, head of division, vice-president and president of the Postgraduate Committee, and member of the Deliberative Council. Moreover, he was mayor of the Piracicaba USP campus, director of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the Brazilian Chemical Society, member of: “Quim. & Eng.
