Piotr Przybylski

Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland

Position: Assistant Professor at Biochemistry Institute, Faculty of Chemistry, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland. Lecturer of biochemistry and spectroscopy, 92 publications in organic and bioorganic chemistry and physical-organic chemistry fields, chemistry of antibiotics, modification of natural products, application of combination of spectroscopic methods for determination of natural product structures (e.g. terpenes, ionophore, macrolide, ansa-macrolide antibiotics, natural phenols and polyphenols). Area of interest: (a) FT-IR (in mid and far infrared ranges), (b) multinuclear one- and two dimmensional NMR correlation techniques (c) mass spectrometric methods (ESI, MALDI, FAB, EI) - analytical applications for organic compounds (d) structure-activity relationship studies of biologically relevant compounds (e) molecular modelling (interactions at active site of enzymes, bilayers - transport across membranes) (f) proton transfer processes investigated via spectroscopy (tautomerism, zwitterions) (g) application of spectroscopic methods for studies of organic compound complexes with monovalent and bivalent metal cations (h) inter- and intramolecular hydrogen bonding in natural product structures (i) determination of biomolecules' conformations in solution (NOESY) (j) self-assembly processes of biomolecules in solution (k) fluctuation of metal cations in complexes (FT-FIR) (l) application of UV-vis spectroscopy for investigation of tautomerisation processes (m) stereoisomerism of natural compounds (n) photoatropisomerisation processes of organic compounds (o) role of Schiff bases in biological systems (p) biological properties of schiff bases, hydrazones and azo derivatives of phenols (r) role of biologically relevant amines (s) water clusters
