Wojciech Bury awarded by the Prime Minister

Dr. Wojciech Bury from the Department of Inorganic was awarded by the Prime Minister in the category of highly regarded scientific achievements being the basis for granting the degree of assistant professor.

He was awarded for describing the design, synthesis, post-synthetic modification and characterisation of porous materials with defined structure for sorption applications (e.g., gas storage, drug release, etc.).

The awards have been granted since 1994. Every year they are awarded to 45 best Polish scientists in various categories.

Based on information from the Academic Forum website.

Dr hab. inż. Wojciech Bury about himself:

I started my Master’s studies in 1999 at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Technology in Warsaw. I graduated with honors in 2004. In 2004 I started my PhD studies at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Technology in Warsaw in the group of Prof. Janusz Lewiński. My scientific achievements during PhD studies were highly appreciated by the Foundation for Polish Science, which awarded me with the National Scholarship for Young Scientists within the START program for the year 2008. In 2009, my doctoral dissertation was awarded by the Prime Minister. In June 2011 I started a postdoctoral training in the team of Prof. Joseph Hupp at Northwestern University in the United States, for which I obtained individual funding under the prestigious “Columbus” (FNP) and “Mobility Plus” programs (Ministry of Science and Higher Education).

In recognition of my scientific achievements, I was awarded the MNiSW scholarship for outstanding young scientists in 2014. After returning from my postdoctoral internship in June 2014, I returned to the position of assistant professor at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Technology in Warsaw. In 2015, I started the NCN Sonata Bis project entitled “Developing new strategies for the synthesis of inorganic-organic porous materials”. In 2015 I became the winner of the Wojciech Świętosławski Award of the Warsaw Branch of PTChem. From 1 January 2016 I have taken up a position as an assistant professor at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Wrocław.

Research interests

In the 21st century, the synthesis of new functional materials has become one of the main challenges of advanced technology. In this field, the design and synthesis of porous materials with defined pore sizes is an extremely important issue. I am currently conducting research together with MSc and PhD students on the design and synthesis of new porous networks within the NCN research project Sonata Bis. The last decade shows the dynamic development of these groups of materials and the research is driven by the demand for new materials that can be used as catalyst carriers, for gas separation or storage.
