The main prize in the third edition of the "Golden Medal of Chemistry" competition - the Golden Medal of Chemistry and 10,000 PLN sponsored by the DuPont Polska was awarded to Michał Papaj from Warsaw University. During a special meeting at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the PAS, the bachelor's degree alumni were awarded also with the Silver and the Bronze Medals of Chemistry and with four distinctions. Four additional distinctions have been awarded by DuPont.
You are a scientist, and your scientific dream has not come true yet? Take part at the unprecedented Dream Chemistry Award Contest, organised by the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences!
Only until the end of November scientists-visionaries can be nominated and enter an unprecedented Dream Chemistry Award Contest - for the most interesting research dream project in the field of chemistry and its borderlines with physics, biology, medicine and materials engineering.

How strongly do two dissolved analytes react with each other? Such information is of paramount importance not only in chemistry and molecular biology, but also in medicine or pharmacy, where it is used, i.a., to determine optimal drug doses. A method developed in the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw will allow for determining diffusion coefficients of analytes in fluids and equilibrium constants of reactions - quickly, at low cost, and most importantly: universally.

Finals of the contest 11th March 2014
Terawatts of power in laser pulses, low cost graphene coatings. Luminescent nanotubes and air-breathing biofuel cells. Proteins confronting nanoviscosity inside living cells, flows improving medical diagnostics and drug testing in bacterial colonies clustering in controlled microdroplets. These and dozens other topics are presented in an electronic book prepared by IPC PAS. The research pursued at the IPC PAS is used to illustrate how science looks like where it is created and where the frontline of the contemporary chemistry meets physics, biology and technology.
