I'm trying to create a bibliography with Mendeley in Latex for my Thesis, but at the end of the document there is a letter "V", in blue color as a link. I wanted to remove that letter "V" after each reference. How can I do this?

enter image description here

The code I have created so far is a multi-part compilation, in a final file with a .tex extension:

%oneside ou openany serve para tirar paginas em branco depois das secções
% Omitting Page Numbers

% Packages
\usepackage{afterpage}  % blank pages
\usepackage{multirow}  % table
\usepackage[table, dvipsnames]{xcolor}  % table
\usepackage{xpatch}  % table
\usepackage{tabu}  % table
\usepackage{hhline}  % cell color does not overlap cell line
\usepackage{fancyhdr}  % headers
\usepackage{breakcites}  % references do not go though margins
\usepackage{sectsty}  % change chapter title size

\usepackage{amsfonts}  % math
\usepackage{amsmath}  % math
\usepackage[pagebackref]{hyperref}  % references

%\newcommand{\rectangle}{{  % rectangle
%  \ooalign{$\sqsubset\mkern3mu$\cr$\mkern3mu\sqsupset$\cr}

%\newcommand\BibTeX{B{\sc ib}\TeX}

% References

% Hide Blank Pages Numbers + Headers

% Space between numbers and text



\newgeometry{left=3cm, right=3cm, top=1cm, bottom=1.2cm}


\afterpage{\blankpage} %comentar para tirar paginas em branco

\pagestyle{plain}  % no more header 



The code corresponding to the bibliography part is as follows (The file containing the bibliography is called Tese.bib.):


The .bib file obtained with Mendeley is as follows:

abstract = {Controllable atmospheric pressure CVD has been optimized to grow transition metal dichalcogenide MoSe2 with tunable morphology at 750 °C on a silicon substrate with a native oxide layer of 250 nm. Utilizing tetrapotassium perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylate (PTAS) as a seed promoter and varying the vertical distance between the substrate and the precursor MoO3, different morphologies of MoSe2 were achieved, including 2D triangles, hexagons, 3D pyramids and vertically aligned MoSe2 sheets. We find that the shape of MoSe2 is highly dependent upon the distance h between the substrate and the precursor. The change in the morphology is attributed to the confinement of vapor (MoO3 and Se) precursors and their concentrations due to the change in h. These results are helpful in improving our understanding about the factors which influence the morphology (shape evolution) and also the continuous growth of MoSe2 films.},

    Maybe don't load hyperref with the pagebackref option?

  • @Mico If I do that it gives me an error at the bottom of the \hypersetup. If I comment on the \hypersetup part it will still give me an error. Oct 6 '20 at 23:54

    @Mico I finally got it! I just removed the pagebackref as you suggested. By the way, what is the pagebackref used for, out of curiosity? Oct 6 '20 at 23:57

    Quoting the user guide of the hyperref package: "pagebackref adds ‘backlink’ text to the end of each item in the bibliography, as a list of page numbers."

    @Mico If you want you can put the comment as an answer to close the question and I give you an OK in the answer for the recognition of the help you gave as a form of gratitude. Oct 7 '20 at 0:37

(re-posting an earlier comment, so that this query can be considered to have received a formal answer)

The undesired Roman numerals are generated as a consequence of the instruction


Quoting from the user guide of the hyperref package:

pagebackref adds ‘backlink’ text to the end of each item in the bibliography, as a list of page numbers.

Deleting the pagebackref option will tell hyperref to cease creating the unwanted backlinks.
