The IOC PAS is a leading Polish research unit conducting research in the field of organic chemistry. The main lines of research concern the methodology of organic synthesis, catalysis and the study of reaction mechanisms. The chemistry of porphyrinoids, supramolecular chemistry and computer-aided organic synthesis are being intensively developed on the basis of the CHEMATICA program, recognized by the Chemistry World journal as one of the 10 most important discoveries of 2019. The Institute is authorized to award doctoral and postdoctoral degrees in chemical sciences. Currently, the research is conducted by 135 researchers, including 14 with the title of professor and 45 doctoral students.
