During his Ph.D. studies at the University of Wroclaw, Poland (with Prof. Marcin Stepien), Rafal Frydrych worked on the synthesis, crystal engineering, and host-guest properties of curved nanocarbons.
Selected publications from his Ph.D. work:
JACS cover 40/2020 https://pubs.acs.org/toc/jacsat/142/40.
Selected for JACS Spotlight https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/jacs.0c09233.
Rafal joined our lab in September. His current research interests include multistep organic synthesis, AI-based robots for multicomponent reactions and dynamic combinatorial/covalent chemistry, self-replication process in chemical systems, nuclear magnetic resonance, and HPLC.
