Dr. Maciej Giedyk

Maciej Giedyk, born in 1988, graduated with a Master's of Engineering degree in chemistry from the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, in 2012. He completed his PhD studies at the Institute of Organic Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences under the supervision of Professor Dorota Gryko in 2016, working on the synthesis and catalytic properties of vitamin B12 derivatives. In 2018, he took up a postdoctoral position in the group of Professor Burkhard König at Regensburg University. Since 2019, he has been an assistant professor at the Institute of Organic Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences.

Awards

In May 2017, Maciej Giedyk received the W. Swietoslawski Award of the Warsaw Division of the Polish Chemical Society for outstanding achievements in science. In 2016 he was awarded a START stipend for young researchers, granted by the Foundation for Polish Science. He has also received the J. Janikowa Award of the Polish Chemical Society for the best Master Thesis 2012 in the field of chemistry.

    Initial repulsion does not rule out subsequent attraction

    The Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer formulated a metaphor called the porcupine dilemma, which explains a certain optimal distance between people. People feel alone at too large a spacing and uneasy at too close a proximity. Schopenhauer explained the ideal spacing using the following parabl ... more

    A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

    Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a key quantum motion of electrons in atomically thin crystals on the time scale of a single oscillation cycle of light. They directly ... more

    Physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

    The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks directly, but rather by their mutual interactions, which are governed by their outer electron shells. Many chemical processes are based on ... more

    Micelles as a reaction environment

    Photoredox catalysis has developed into a powerful tool for the synthesis of organic compounds with diverse structures. However, the high stability of carbon-chloride bonds has long hampered the use of cheap and readily available chloroalkanes as substrates. more

    Interesting Health Promoters

    There is barely a class of compounds among the secondary metabolites of plants that is so prominently represented in our lives as that of the flavonoids. They are found in ­numerous food substances in various oxidation states, and principally as glycosides (Fig. 1). By consuming fruit, vege ... more
