Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry

Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences was established in 1968 as the only independent scientific institution in Poland, and one of the only eight in the world, devoted entirely to the research and catalysis and chemistry of interfaces. Among scientific staff of the institute there are 15 professors and associate professors (docent) specialising in various aspects of catalysis, surface chemistry and colloid science. The activities of the institute cover the interdisciplinary field of the physical chemistry of phenomena occuring at solid/gas, liquid/gas and solid/liquid interfaces.
