8. Description of the employing unit
Institute of Organic Chemistry is one of the units of Chemical Department of
the Lodz University of Technology. Was created in 1970 as a result of changes
provided by Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The Institute is a
scientific unit conducting research in the field of organic chemistry. The
main lines of research concern the methodology of organic synthesis,
asymmetric catalysis, synthesis and the use of organic catalysts with a
strictly defined spatial structure. The important aspect of our research is
understanding the mechanisms of organocatalytic reactions based on kinetic and
synthetic techniques, particularly with nuclear magnetic resonance
spectroscopy (NMR). Recently we also conducting research on mass
spectrometer coupled with multidiversion liquid chromatograph. The Institute's
