Say cheese!

Most exiting conferences have been canceled or postponed in 2021. So what? We decided to arrange our own mini-conferences. The first one gathered 19 participants from MBA group and our colleagues from Oulu University (Finland). We shared great ideas and insightful thoughts about the common areas of research.

Looking forward to meet Texas A&M group next month.


Remember Harshita? She worked in our labs in 2018. Recently we have published a paper on organic modification of sawdust and its application for vanadium removal. The paper appeared in open access.


Monika’s research within Miniatura project has been published in Spectrochimica Acta A. Follow the link to read more on the effect of organo-montmorillonite on cross-linking of polysiloxanes.


Paulina defended her PhD thesis successfully on 26th October via Covid-free online meeting. Congratulations and all the best for your scientific career!


Another paper published in 2021! This time Tomasz in collaboration with Drewniak & Dziewit group in Journal of Hazardous Materials (IF – 9.038).


Karolina’s paper on mineral-based synthesis of LDH has been published in Applied Surface Science Journal (IF – 6.182). It is our first publication in 2021!


The new pilot installation for adsorbents testing has arrived. We are moving forward with the first large-scale experiments in Tango 2 project!


Short pop-science article was published online regarding our work in the OPUS project which deals with LDH materials. It’s in Polish so beware.


Not only minerals…Monika has just published a paper on catalytic activity of polysiloxane networks. Check out in Journal of Applied Polymer Science.


Holding MBA meetings without breaking social distancing measures…a different kind of experience in the age of Covid-19.


How effective and stable are our adsorbents in dynamic systems? Is it possible to regenerate them? Is the use of our materials cost-effective? This is something we want to find out in Tango 2 project.


The past year has been one to remember. There were many successes, publications, new grants, new equipment and changes.

Most importantly:

+ 22 reviewed articles were published
+ 23 abstracts were published after 4 conferences with a total of 9 oral presentations
+ 3 new grants were obtained (Team-Net, Fulbright Senior Award, Miniatura)
+ 7 grants in total are ongoing
+ 3 special issues are handeled by Tomasz and Jakub
+ Ania received a PhD degree
+ Monika joined us as a new member
+ …
