Research issues

Our main research studies are focused on three elements – silicon, phosphorous and sulfur and the attention is directed towards preparation of new advanced materials and efficient catalysts. This covers e.g., coordination chemistry of metals with S- and P-donor ligands, crystal engineering leading to metal-organic coordination networks or assemblies formed due to the presence of H-bond interactions, project related to bioinorganic chemistry and computational approaches towards nanotechnological concepts.

Our research is carried out in three groups:

Our department is equipped with a Stoe IPDS-2T diffractometer with graphite-monochromated Mo radiation, a Bruker Avance III HD 400 MHz NMR spectrometer (external standard TMS for 1H, 13C; 85% H3PO4 for 31P), a Nicolet iS50 FTIR spectrometer equipped with the Specac Quest single-reflection diamond attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessory and glove box of MBraun Company (model LabmasterPro) for chemical storage and preparation of samples which are not stable in air or humidity. We collaborate with several research groups from Poland as well as from Germany, Italy, USA and Brazil.
