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".

Lewiński Group Covers 2016-17: from fundamental organometallic chemistry, through catalysis towards nanomaterials.

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).
