Research Interest:

His current research interests are focused on photochemical and photophysical processes in polymer materials. He is an expert in fluorescence spectroscopy. The topics of the interest are mainly radical processes related to photo- and thermo-oxidation of the polyolefines and biodegradable polyesters, dynamics of the polymers in solution, characterization of the water-soluble polymers in the presence of their monomers and spectral characterization of Donor-Acceptor chromophores for application in fotonics all followed by steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. Recently, He is interested also on preparation of special monomers and low-molecular weight bifunctional fluorescence probes. He works in complex-forming biopolymers used at encapsulation of bioactive substances and at development of biosensor for glucose monitoring based on the fluorescence detection.
