K3/Stefan.jpg

The K3 department is active in the field of physical chemistry, where we are dealing with experimental and theoretical investigations of physicochemical processes on solids surfaces, as well as in the field of organic and inorganic synthesis.

PHYSICAL AND ORGANIC CHEMISTRY - K3


The department is focused on the investigation of physicochemical processes on the surfaces of solids, such as corrosion and heterogeneous catalysis, as well as the synthesis of new compounds. The synergy of these two fields is created in the studies of corrosion protection and functionalization of materials. We exploit an integrative approach where we combine:

  • organic and inorganic synthesis of new compounds and environmentally friendly coatings,
  • electrochemical studies of corrosion and electrochemical properties,
  • materials and molecular modeling based on first principles.

The goal is to gain new insights and understanding of mechanisms of protection and degradation of materials in different environments. We direct our knowledge to new research and design of advanced sustainable solutions in the protection of materials and the development of new catalysts.
