Mayor of Gdańsk Fahrenheit Scholarship for International PhD Students

Grafika tematyczna
Are you a PhD student conducting interdisciplinary research? Would you like to undertake a year’s internship in one of the best universities in northern Poland? This proposal is for you.

The Mayor of Gdańsk in cooperation with the Fahrenheit Universities have created Fahrenheit scholarships for the best three PhD students from abroad.

Faculty seminar "Nuclear Quantum Effects on Multiple Proton Transfer in Molecular Crystals: The Case of Terepthalic Acid"

The faculty seminar will be on Monday, 25.07. at 13.15 in the auditorium 1.4. and on the MS Teams platform. Our guest will be Prof. Prasejit Ghosh from the Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research, Pune and the topic of his speech will be "Nuclear Quantum Effects on Multiple Proton Transfer in Molecular Crystals: The Case of Terepthalic Acid".

Researchers from Gdańsk University of Technology, supervised by Prof. Mohammad Reza Saeb, conduct research on inexpensive, fireproof and electrically conductive materials made of used car tires and carbon fillers. 3D printed thermoplastic composites can be used, among others, in electronics, automotive and construction industries. The research team from Gdańsk University of Technology are among the world's leading researchers in the field of waste tires recycling.

Environmentally friendly and low-cost methods of recycling of the used car tires are one of the greatest environmental challenges. Ground tire rubber (GTR) is currently used, among others, as modifiers or fillers in preparation of polymer composites, in asphalt or concrete for the needs of various branches of the industry.

Four awards for DPT employees at INTARG 2022

Przedstawiciele Wydziału Chemicznego na targach INTARG 2022
On the 12th of May, at the International Congress Center in Katowice, the 15th jubilee International Fair of Inventions and Innovations INTARG® 2022 ended. This event is devoted to the international presentation and promotion of the potential and achievements of technological thought and science, i.e. inventions, technologies, and innovative services directed to industry.

Thanks to its high international reputation, the INTARG® trade fair has been under the patronage of the highest-ranking institutions, led by the Ministry of Development and Technology and the World Intellectual Property Organization WIPO – one of the 16 UN agencies. INTARG® is the only fair in Poland and a few in the world held under the honorary patronage of WIPO.

Green chemistry - a chance for alternative CO2 sequestration

Prof. Adam Kloskowski and Karol Baran
Carbon sequestration technologies are still being modified and scientists worldwide are working on improving them or introducing new ideas. While fulfilling their main function of absorbing carbon dioxide, many of the CO2 absorbents currently used have various disadvantages, and some of them, at the same time, are harmful to the natural environment. Researchers from Gdańsk University of Technology are working on creation of an ionic liquid that will absorb harmful gas without adversely affecting the environment.

Ionic liquids are substances with special properties. They are consistent with the assumptions of the green chemistry. Properties that characterize modern ionic liquids are the following: negligible vapor pressure, high thermal stability (high decomposition temperatures), low melting points and low toxicity. These properties allow wide use in various fields of industry and scientific research. This raises high hopes in the energy industry. They are used in outlet points from various processes, where they can purify gases, e.g.
