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!
Our group is going to organize the EEPM3 conference.
The 3rd International Symposium on Energy and Environmental Photocatalytic Materials (EEPM3) is the continuation of a series of conferences initiated in 2014. The conference covers 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. This meeting serves as an inspiring forum for the discussion of interdisciplinary research from around the world through a variety of formats, including plenary, keynote and invited lectures, oral and flash presentations, poster sessions and commercial exhibition.
The conference will start on May 15th and will end on May 19th. More info can be found on the conference website.
Dr. Joanna Kuncewicz obtained a grant from National Science Centre within SONATA 13 programme. The project goal and title are “Studies on the interaction of semiconductors with metal-organic frameworks (MOF) and its influence on photoinduced processes”.
Our results were presented at the 7th Czech – Polish Catalytic Symposium, held in Ostrava, Czech Republic, on February 3rd 2018.
Professor Wojciech Macyk is the laureate of the prestigious Award of the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding scientific achievements in 2017. The awards ceremony took place on December 11, 2017 in Łazienki Królewskie Park, Warsaw.
The prizes were awarded for outstanding scientific achievements, individual and collective didactic achievements and organizational successes in the past year. During the ceremony, Minister Gowin said: “Looking at the winners, I know that Polish science is getting better and better, and Polish academics have reached the world level.”
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.
Prof. Wojciech Macyk and dr Joanna Kuncewicz are laureates of the prestigeous Foundation for Polish Science TEAM project. The project entitled “In quest of a more efficient quantum solar energy exploitation in energy downhill and uphill photocatalytic processes (INGENIOUS)” goals are to elaborate various photocatalytic and hybrid photocatalytic/catalytic materials with significantly improved efficiencies of quantum solar energy utilization.
Dr. Przemysław Łabuz obtained a grant from National Science Centre within SONATA 11 programme. The project goal and title are “Mechanisms of toxicity and phototoxicity of photoactive oxide nanomaterials”.
