Professor Wojciech Macyk received a grant in the OPUS 23 competition. The project Photocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic coatings with a gradient composition, investigated by Prof. Wojciech Macyk, is aimed to develop photoactive coatings with a gradient variable composition that would promote better separation of photoinduced charges.
Dr. Tetiana Tatarchuk, associate professor at the Department of Chemistry and director of the Didactic and Scientific Center for Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University in Ivano-Frankivsk won a grant from the National Science Center for researchers from Ukraine to continue their research at the Polish research centers. Dr Tetiana Tatarchuk will continue research into new heterogeneous catalytic reactions based on advanced oxidation processes that can be used for water treatment. The project will cover the synthesis of new, active materials, their characterization and catalytic tests.
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).
Group of Photocatalysis together with a group of prof. Tatarchuk from Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University obtained a grant from the National Agency Science for Academic Exchange (NAWA). The project title is “Photocatalytic hybrid systems for water purification.”
