Few members of our group have attended the 10th European meeting on Solar Chemistry and Photocatalysis: Environmental Applications (SPEA10), held in Almería, Spain, on June 4th – 8th 2018. We have presented 3 lectures and 3 posters. The schedule of the conference was haeavily packed with lectures worth listening to. We are now back in Poland with new knowledge and ideas for future work!
Prof. Sebastian Maćkowski, prof. Joanna Niedziółka-Jönsson and prof. Wojciech Macyk obtained a grant from National Science Centre within OPUS 12 programme. The project “Remotely light-controlled activity of dyes, proteins and catalysts: imaging, sensing and energy conversion” is intended to show that the energy of photons illuminating a nanowire can be transported to its other end, and that this energy is capable to activate and deactivate nanostructures, which are important from the point of view of imaging, sensorics or energy conversion.
We have hosted the EEPM3 conference which was a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience in a wide range of fundamental and applied research areas pertaining to light harvesting, solar energy conversion and storage, environment remediation, clean technologies and sustainable chemical processes with the focus on photocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic reactions.
Our group becomes more and more international. For three months we will host Mr. Claudio Imparato from Italy. Claudio is a PhD student at University of Naples Federico II, where he works in the group of Prof. Antonio Aronne.
The photocatalytic conference EEPM3 that will be organized by our group is getting closer and closer. See you in May in Kraków.
We have a new photo of our group, taken at the roof of our Faculty. We aim high!
The Team of Photocatalysis has two new members: Dr. Taymaz Tabari from Iran joined us as a post-doc, while Mr. Kasidid Yaemsunthorn from Thailand will work on his PhD. Welcome to Kraków!
The members of our group took part in conference Molecules and Light 2017 IV Autumn Meeting of the Polish Photochemistry Group organized by The Polish Section of the European Photochemistry Association (EPA), which was held from 25 to 29 September 2017 in Zakopane, Poland.
