Future member?

A son was just born to one of the group members (Dr. M. Trochowski). Congratulations! Who knows, he may also want to deal with light-driven chemistry in the future.

 

Cooperation

Intern in our group

Our group becomes more and more international. For three months we will host Ms. Hanna Braun from Germany. Hanna is a Ph.D. student at Ulm University, where she works in the group of Prof. Timo Jacob. She also collaborates with prof. Radim Beránek as part of the Solar-driven chemistry project.

Group photo

Thanks to the progressive vaccination against SARS-Cov19, we managed to get together at the roof of our Faculty to take a group photo.

New publication

Our new paper submitted to The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters has been selected by the Editors to be announced on the cover page. The paper entitled “Combined Spectroscopic Methods of Determination of Density of Electronic States: Comparative Analysis of Diffuse Reflectance Spectroelectrochemistry and Reversed Double-Beam Photoacoustic Spectroscopy” (M. Kobielusz, B Nitta, A., Ohtani, W Macyk; J. Phys. Chem. Lett. 2021, 12,  3019–3025) show how complementary information on the density of electronic states of photocatalysts can be gathered using diffuse reflectance spectroelectrochemistry (SE-DRS) and reversed double-beam photoacoustic spectroscopy (RDB-PAS). The comparative analysis shows that both methods provide valuable information which can be used in understanding and predicting the photo(electro)catalytic activity of semiconductors.
