Welcome to Marcin Kalek's Research Group
Welcome to the website of our chemistry research group at the Centre of New Technologies of the University of Warsaw. Our research is aimed at the development of new synthetic methodologies based on the application of nucleophilic catalysis, also in a combination with transition metal catalysis. We are mainly concentrated on asymmetric transformations and we routinely apply modern quantum chemical methods in the course of our work.
Our paper on the mechanism of asymmetric palladium-catalyzed oxidative carbocyclizatyion-borylation, made in a collaboration with Prof. Jan-Erling Bäckvall from Stockholm University, is published in Chem. Eur. J.
Marcin has been awarded the Scholarship for Distinguished Young Scientists by the Minister of Science and Higher Education.
