PRL & ILL GROUPS
Both groups: Pulse Radiolysis Laboratory (PRL) and Ionic Liquids Laboratory (ILL) are part of Centre of Radiation Research and Technology. CRRT is the one of 4 departments in the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology in Warsaw. Research activities of the CRRT focused on basic and applied research in the field of radiation chemistry and physics and development of radiation technologies on a laboratory and pilot plant scale with further adaptation to an industrial scale.
The groups were involved in the Research Training Network SULFRAD (2002-2006) with 4 universities and 2 research institutions from France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, and Poland (5th FP) and in the COST Programme, Action P9 RADAM (2003 – 2007) with over 20 universities and research institutions from nearly all European countries (6th FP). The groups were lately involved in the COST Programme CM0603 CHEMBIO-RADICAL (7th FP) that concerns free radicals chemistry in chemical biology and involves over 15 universities and research institutions from nearly 15 European countries. The research programme of the groups has been carried and is still continued based on close bilateral collaboration with many foreign laboratories from Europe, USA (Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory), and Chile. The scientific achievements of the group have been published in many articles in peer-reviewed journals (e. g. J. Am. Chem. Soc., J. Phys. Chem. A and B, Eur. Chem. J., Free Radic. Biol. Med.) and presented on international conferences.

MAIN TOPICS
Research focuses on oxidation effects in media, with particular emphasis on the identities and molecular structure of short-lived transients and reaction mechanisms. Subject involves application of radiation methods for the study of OH-induced oxidation of sulfur-containing alcohols, carboxylic acids, amino acids and their derivatives, and peptides.  more...
Ionic liquids (ILs) are fluids at room temperature consisting entirely of ions. The character and strength of interactions between cations and anions are responsible for determination of their properties. Therefore, various combinations of cations and anions can be used to obtain desired properties. more...
SACSESS International Workshop
This workshop took place in Warsaw on 22-24 April 2015 and covered the following topics: Actinide sciences for separation (including radiation chemistry of extraction systems); Separation process development & engineering; Fuel cycle and waste management strategies; Both in the field of aqueous separation and pyrometallurgy

PULSE RADIOLYSIS (LAE 10)  (time-resolved)
(based on the 10 MeV electron linear accelerator LAE 10)
The Linear Electron accelerator LAE10 has been constructed at the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology (INCT) and was installed in 1999. The LAE 10 has been solely dedicated to pulse radiolysis experiments and related work in the field of radiation chemistry with the following nominal parameters: electron energy 10 MeV, pulse duration 4-10 ns and 100 ns, peak current 1A, beam power 0.2 kW and repetition rate 1, 12.5, 25 Hz and single pulse mode.  more...
The INCT laser flash photolysis system is based on the Nd:YAG SURLITE II laser (Continuum). The time duration of a laser pulse is 6 ns (FWHM). Currently, the system is capable of operating on the four lines: basic line 1064 nm with energy 670 mJ and three harmonic generated lines 532, 355 and 266nm with energies 315, 101, 83 mJ, respectively.  more...
DX500 Dionex
Analytical instrumentation, necessary to analyze for the typically low product concentrations in radiation and photochemical experiments, includes the state-of-the-art DX500 Dionex (USA) system for IC and HPLC applications.  more...
STOPPED FLOW  (time-resolved)
BioLogic Science Instruments
Stopped-flow is a spectroscopic technique used for studying fast reaction mechanisms in solution over timescales of about 1ms up to 100’s seconds. In general, two reagents are rapidly mixed together and then ‘stopped’ in an observation cell. The sample cell is irradiated with (usually) monochromatic light and as the reaction proceeds the change in the recorded signal, usually a fluorescence signal or the absorbance at a specific wavelength, is recorded as a function of time.  more...
GC-14B Shimadzu
The GC-14B gas chromatograph is a multipurpose instrument exhibiting high-performance. This GC unit has small installation area requirements and large system expansion capabilities.  more...
GAMMA CHAMBER 5000  (irradiation)
Gamma Chamber 5000 is a compact self shielded cobalt-60 gamma irradiator providing a dose rate ca. 6 kGy/h (03.2012) and have an irradiation volume of approximately 5000cc. The size of sample chamber 17.2cm (dia) X 20.5cm (ht). The material for irradiation is placed in an irradiation chamber located in the vertical drawer inside the lead flask. This drawer can be moved up and down with the help of a system of motorised drive which enables precise positioning of the irradiation chamber at the centre of the radiation field.  more...
