Welcome to the Swadźba-Kwaśny research group website!

Embedded within the QUILL Research Centre at the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Queen’s University Belfast, we are intersted in ionic liquids and other functional liquids.

The core focus of our current research are (i) acidic ionic liquids and (ii) main group chemistry in ionic liquids. This very broad theme covers a range of projects, from fundamental studies on the liquid structure using neutron scattering, through the design of Lewis acidic and superacidic ionic liquids, application of these systems for chemical valorisation of plastic waste, and chemistry of frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) in the ionic liquid environment.
