Associate Professor

Teresa Łuczak - D. Sc. in chemical sciences, in the field of electrochemistry; from 2016 holds a position of AMU professor. Academic teacher, research worker, authoress or co-authoress of a number of papers published in journals of international circulation. The area of her expertise covers electrochemistry in a general sense, in particular the kinetics and mechanisms of oxidation and reduction of organic compounds on noble metal electrodes, recently also the problems of detection of biologically active compounds on electrodes modified with organic compounds and noble metal nanoparticles.

  • Kinetics and mechanisms of electrooxidation and electroreduction of organic compounds on noble metals
  • Electrosorption of aliphatic compounds on gold
  • Design of new electrochemical sensors
  • Detection of biologically active compounds on electrodes modified by electrochemical or chemical methods with organic compounds and/or noble metal nanoparticles
