Eberlin discovered the Eberlin Reaction during his work on gas phase ion chemistry, and he and his research group introduced EASI[2] (Easy Ambient Sonic-spray Ionization), an ionization technique used in mass spectrometry.

Eberlin is an advocate of intelligent design in Brazil, a pseudoscience on which he also lectures and he has signed the Dissent From Darwinism statement.[3][4] He is a creationist also, and has said that evolution theory is a fallacy.[5]

His daughter, Livia S. Eberlin,[6] is also a chemist who won the MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship in 2018 for her research on the use of mass spectrometry to diagnose cancer.[7] Eberlin and his daughter have worked together on a different project, using mass spectrometry to detect counterfeit money.[6]
