Karol Jackowski has obtained his M.S., Ph.D., and D.S. degrees in the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw, Poland, in the field of physical chemistry in 1969, 1974, and 1996, respectively. Following one year of holding his postdoctoral position in the Department of Chemistry, Sheffield University, UK, (1976–77) he spent 2 years (1983–85) in the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle, Chicago, Ill, USA. During 1989–99, he was the Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Spectroscopy; and since 1999, he has been the Head of the Laboratory of NMR Spectroscopy in the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw. With his research group from Warsaw University, he took part in ten research projects financed from various international and national sources. In 2000, he was appointed as a Professor in the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw. Since 2004, he has been the Titular Professor of Chemistry. He is a Member of the Faculty Council in the Department of Chemistry (Warsaw University), Polish Chemical Society, Australian and New Zealand Society for Magnetic Resonance (ANZMAG), American Chemical Society (ACS), Polish-German and Polish Canadian Radiospectroscopy Groups, and International Society of Magnetic Resonance (ISMAR). Since 2008, he has been also a Member of the ISMAR Council. His scientific interests include spectroscopic studies of intermolecular interactions and molecular dynamics, mostly in the gas phase with the application of multinuclear NMR experiments. In his studies, spin-spin coupling and shielding NMR parameters are frequently determined for isolated molecules and compared with the results of quantum chemical calculations. It allows the precise investigations of many interesting problems in NMR spectroscopy like nuclear magnetic moments, isotopic effects, and shielding scales.
