The main prize in the fifth edition of the "Golden Medal of Chemistry" competition - the Golden Medal of Chemistry and 10,000 PLN sponsored by DuPont Polska was awarded to Michał Sawczyk from Warsaw University. During a special meeting at the DuPont base the bachelor's degree alumni were awarded also with the Silver and the Bronze Medals of Chemistry and with five distinctions. Three additional distinctions have been awarded by DuPont.

The Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland, has recently received a European ERA Chair grant of 2.5 million euros. Soon, the grant will enable a world-class specialist in the field of biology, working where it meets with chemistry or physics, to be employed at the Institute.
In a standard scientific career usually several years pass between being awarded a master's degree and earning a doctorate. Krzysztof Sozański from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw has become a doctor shortly after graduation, at the age of 24 years. Such rapid progression was possible thanks to his early involvement in research work.

Chemical computers are becoming ever more of a reality - this is being proven by scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. It turns out that after an appropriate teaching procedure even a relatively simple chemical system can perform non-trivial operations. In their most recent computer simulations researchers have shown that correctly programmed chemical matrices of oscillating droplets can recognize the shape of a sphere with great accuracy.

Polish physical chemistry is joining forces with Chinese medical and molecular biology and biochemistry. In Tianjin an agreement has been signed on long-term cooperation between the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Nankai University, one of the highest ranked research units in China.
Pulse lasers built entirely on optical fibers are increasingly readily being used by industry. Optical scientists from the Warsaw Laser Centre of the IPC PAS and the Faculty of Physics of the University of Warsaw have generated ultrashort laser pulses in an optical fiber, by using a method previously considered as physically impossible to achieve. Their solution is not only useful, but also surprisingly simple!
