Sorbonne University, France
Title : Functionalization of porous materials for application in environmental catalysis for protection of environment


During my plenary lecture a functionalization of porous materials with transition metals such as Co, Fe, Ni and Cu will be discussed and obtained materials will be characterized with different physical techniques at the molecular and macroscopic levels.

The porous materials with transition metals incorporated in their structure are applied in the different catalytic processes important for protection of environment such as selective catalytic reduction of NOx to N2 and hydrodechlorination of chlorinated volatile organic compounds into non-toxic, environmentally friendly products.


Professor Stanislaw Dzwigaj received his PhD degree in 1982 in Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Krakow (Poland). After two years of postdoctoral stay at the Laboratoire de Réactivité de Surface Université P. et M. Curie (Paris) he obtained in 1990 a position of contracted researcher in the same Laboratory devoted to surface reactivity in relation to catalysis phenomena. Then, in 2008 he obtained permanent position in CNRS as a researcher. On February 19, 2014 for outstanding scientific achievements, he received the title of professor.  His published work includes more than 180 papers published in reputable international journals.
