Scientists from the University of Silesia in Katowice and the Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals in Gliwice have developed a one-step method for the synthesis of isoxazolines, which, thanks to their chemical properties, can be used in agents with antibacterial and antifungal properties.
The 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazolines obtained in this way will also be used to obtain nanomaterials (for example, conductive polymers) used for organic electronics (including OLED technology) and to create plastic displays or organic sensors.
The authors of the invention are scientists associated with the University of Silesia: Prof. Eng. Stanisław Krompiec, Beata Marcol-Szumilas, Dr Eng Dawid Zych, Joanna Malarz, and Dr Eng. Katarzyna Leszczyńska-Sejda and Dr Eng. Grzegorz Benke from the Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals in Gliwice. The solution has been patented.
