June 2019 Calix-2019 Cassis, France
It was an honour to present our latest results and meet distinguished scientists at Calix-2019.
June 2019 ISMSC2019 Lecce, Italy
The 14th International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry was a great mixture of science, baroque architecture, and Italian cuisine.
March 2019 New Ph.D. student
Malgorzata Pamula (M.Sc., Chemistry) has started as a Ph.D. student in the project.
May 2018 - April 2019 Research at ICIQ
Enjoying the hospitality of Prof. Pau Ballester in his lab at the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia. The inspiring research atmosphere and instrumentation are just perfect for calixpyrrole chemistry.
May 2018 - April 2023 Overview
The project aims to offer pioneering solutions for the selective binding of biologically and technologically important anions. The target anions include anti-inflammatory drugs with carboxylate groups, and valuable resources, such as phosphate and precious metals (Au, Pt, Co). The project focuses on advanced synthesis of selective receptors, characterization of the anion complexes and development of extraction methods for target anions from water.
