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.
We hosted two talented high school students participating in research workshops organized by the Polish Children's Fund. During their stay Marcin and Tomek worked on the development of new reactions involving hypervalent iodine reagents and catalysts.
Karol participated in the Science Picnic of Polish Radio and the Copernicus Science Centre at the National Stadium in Warsaw. Check the Gallery for cool pictures.
