Keynote
New organic and polymeric additives in processing of advance ceramic materials

Mikolah Szafran
Warsaw University of Technology, Poland

Tenured professor of the Faculty of Chemistry Warsaw University of Technology. He graduated at the Faculty of Chemistry Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) in 1974. Now he is the Head of the Advanced Ceramics Laboratory. His scientific interests concerns mainly designing and obtaining advanced ceramic materials on the chemistry base (inorganic chemistry, colloidal chemistry, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry) by investigations of the dense and porous ceramic materials with the intended physicochemical and mechanical properties and intended microstructure. These materials are dedicated in the electronics, electric engineering (functional ceramics), cosmetic dentistry, fuel cells, ozonation of water and aeration of waste water (porous materials), construction ceramic materials, etc. Now his research work refers to deagglomeration and sintering of nanopowders, synthesis and application of new low-toxic monomers for gelcasting process, design of ceramic-metal and ceramic-polymer composites (polymer matrix composites for dental applications and ceramic matrix composites based on porous ceramic preforms), ferroelectric ceramic-polymer composites as novel materials for tunable and flexible microwave sensors and smart materials based on the shear thickening fluids.

His scientific achievements comprise 3 monographs, 4 chapters in scientific books, over 240 articles published in scientific journals, 350 oral and poster presentations at national and international conferences, 60 invited and plenary lectures, 55 patents and patent applications. He was also author or co-author 50 of technological solutions. He promoted 12 doctors (7 personsare still working on PhD thesis under his direction) and about 110 students performed their MSc and BSc work under his direction. During his work he held a number of responsible functions. In 2002-2008 he was Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry of WUT, during 2008-2015 he was Vice-Chairman of the Scientific Council of the Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials. Since 2009 he is Vice-President of the Polish Ceramic Society and the member of the board of the European Ceramic Society. Since 2013 he is a member of the World Academy of Science- Class Science. He organized many scientific conferences, e.g. E-MRS, Fall Meeting, "Polish Ceramics”±, conferences of the Polish Ceramic Society. He cooperate with many scientific institutions in Poland and in the World, e.g. Institute of High Pressure Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Ceramics and Buildings Materials, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi`an, (China); National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba, (Japan); EMPA, Materials Science and Technology, Zعrich, (Switzerland); Instituto De Ceramica y Vidrio, Madrid (Spain); Institute for Problems of Materials Science National Academy of Science, Kiev, (Ukraine). In 2014 he obtain”°Distinguished Award 2014 for Novel Materials and their Synthesis”± given by International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry & Organization Committee of Novel Materials and their Synthesis.
