Conference

9th Czech – Polish Catalytic Symposium

Our results were presented at the 9th Czech – Polish Catalytic Symposium, held in Ostrava, Czech Republic, on February 7th, 2020. We have presented 4 lectures. The symposium as always was packed with many interesting presentations but we also had time for discussions.

Grant

Solar project granted

Group of Prof. Wojciech Macyk is one of three Polish research teams involved in projects awarded in the Solar-Driven Chemistry call. The project Interfacial engineering of semiconductors for highly selective light-driven chemical transformations, investigated by Prof. Wojciech Macyk, is aimed to study the possibility of selectivity control in photo(electro)catalytic processes through engineering the semiconductor/solvent or semiconductor/gas interfaces. Photo(electro)catalytic reactions are the solar-driven processes that can be used to produce solar fuels, fine chemicals or to depollute water and air. The project will involve research teams led by Prof. Radim Beránek from Ulm University (project leader), Prof. Timo Jacob (Ulm University), and Prof. Markku Leskela (University of Helsinki).

Congratulations!

Grant

MINIATURA project granted

Dr. Mateusz Trochowski obtained a grant from the National Science Centre within Miniatura 3 program. The project goal and title are “Selective photocatalytic reduction of aromatic nitro compounds in the presence of zinc oxide decorated with noble metal nanoparticles.”.

Congratulations!

Award

Symbol 2019 gala

Today Professor Macyk attended gala dinner at which he received the Symbol 2019 award. The Symbol is an award that shows the appreciation for actions, projects and achievements of the Group of Photocatalysis.

 

Grant

PRELUDIUM project granted

MSc Paweł Mikrut obtained a grant from National Science Centre within Preludium 17 program. The project goal and title are “Crystals with exposed selected crystallographic facets – a new approach to designing anodes for photo-fuel cells”.

Congratulations!
