Prof. Janusz Rak
University of Gdańsk (Poland)
Department of Physical Chemistry

His past interests comprised photoconductivity in solution, thermochemistry of organic and inorganic salts, prototropic tautomerism in organic compounds, chemiluminescence of acridine derivatives, intermolecular forces with particular emphasis on the non-additive effects as well as repair processes in DNA. Currently, he is involved in the quantum chemical investigations of the electron-induced degradation of DNA, long-range electron transfer in this biopolymer, and theoretically-experimental studies on DNA sensitization to UV photons and ionizing radiation.
