Main current Research interests:

  • Sustainable Chemistry - Development of Environmentally Friendly Processes under the Principles of Green Chemistry
  • Biomass as raw material
  • Cellulose as a key building block for functional materials, e.g. biodegradable films
  • Applied photocatalysis - use of photocatalysis for current environmental problems
  • Photocatalytic membrane systems - development of the membrane, construction of a closed system
  • Application in developing countries
