Green Chemistry Research Group

The pollutant concentration in the environment decreases in natural physical, chemical, and biological processes at a rate that depends both on the pollutant and its environment. Depending on the rate of the mentioned processes and the environmental loading, the concentration of the pollutants varies in time and location. In the decrease of the environmental loading, the environmental friendly and environmental protecting technologies are of primary importance. The compounds, having high biological activity, destroy the ozone shield, cause climate change, and their slow decomposition in natural processes are especially dangerous. The objective of the research department is to take part in the work providing scientific bases to the development of environmentally benign technologies, and to contribute to the clarification of the role of air polluting compounds in the chemical and photochemical processes of the atmosphere.

Fields of our interest in catalysis are the synthesis and modification of porous materials, determination of the surface and structural properties, and the understanding the relationship between the physico-chemical and catalytic properties of the materials .

The main research area in atmospheric chemistry is the study of the kinetics and molecular mechanism of elementary chemical and photochemical reactions. For the most part, we investigate such processes and phenomena that play an important role in the complex interplay between climate change and the chemistry of the environment. We apply mainly laser-based experimental techniques for the production and detection of reactive species (e.g., free radicals). The kinetic and photochemical data determined experimentally are being used as input parameters in atmospheric chemistry and combustion models. Our theoretical studies cover not only the kinetic but also the dynamical properties of elementary reactions.

The main research activities in field of metathesis include the development of innovative materials, polymers, new generation metathesis catalysts and environmental benign chemical processes -  facebook site

Main research areas in metathesis research are: Petrochemistry – synthesis of recyclable polymers; Biopolymers – drug delivery agents, implants; Conversion of carbon neutral, biomass based materials to value added materials via olefin metathesis; Energy storage polymers.
