Synthesis Methodology
The Kalek Research Group

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 hypervalent iodine compounds, often employing organocatalysis and transition metal catalysis. We are also interested in stereoselective transformations as well as mechanistic investigations, and we routinely apply modern quantum chemical methods in the course of our work.
