On November 12th to November 22nd, 2015, prof. Mikołaj Szafran, PhD, DSc, Eng., Head of the Department of Chemical Technology has been a visiting professor upon an invitation from the Northwestern Polytechnical University w Xi`an (Chiny). During the visit, he gave 5 lectures on advanced ceramic materials design and synthesis and signed the cooperation agreement on science cooperation as well as researchers, PhD students and students exchanges between the Faculty of Chemistry of WUT and the School of Materials Science and Engineering of NWPU. On the photo prof. Hejun Li, PhD, the Dean of School of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern Polytechnical University (Xi’an, China), signs the cooperation agreement in the presence of prof. Mikołaj Szafran.

With a real pleasure we announce, that Prof. Karol Grela, PhD, DSc of the University of Warsaw's Chemical Faculty and of Institute of Organic Chemistry PAS, our faculty graduate (graduated in 1994), was awarded with this year's Foundation for the Polish Science Prize, also called the "Polish Nobel Prize".

Achievements

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2015 was awarded to: Jean-Pierre Sauvage of University of Strasbourg, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart of Northwestern University and Bernard L. Feringa of Groningen University.
Our former employee, Wojciech Bury, PhD, Eng. - has published two articles with prof. Stoddart:
Metal-organic framework thin films composed of free-standing acicular nanorods exhibiting reversible electrochromism, Chem. Mater. 25 (2013) 5012
Ultrahigh Surface Area Zirconium MOFs and Insights into the Applicability of the BET Theory, J. Am. Chem. Soc. 137 (2015) 3585

Dominik Jańczewski, PhD, DSc, Eng., KNOW Assistant Professor at our Faculty, is a coauthor of the paper that recently has been published in the prestigeous Nature Nanotechnology journal (IF = 35,3). Work describes new method to measure the isoelectric point of proteins by employing very small amounts of sample. It is possible due to novel method of measuring interaction force between model surface and protein immobilized on the tip of atomic force mixroscope (AFM).
Measuring protein isoelectric points at the molecular scale by AFM using trace amount of sample, Shifeng Guo, Xiaoying Zhu, Dominik Jańczewski, Serina Siew Chen Lee, Tao He, Serena Lay Ming Teo, G. Julius Vancso, Nature Nanotechnology 2016, DOI: 10.1038/nnano.2016.118
