Karol Kyzioł is Professor at AGH in the field of Materials Engineering, Head of the Department of Physical Chemistry and Modelling and Head of Laboratory of Vapour Deposited Materials.
His academic achievements consist of 121 published scientific publications, including 36 from the base of Journal Citation Reports (including 35 which were published after gaining his doctoral degree), the total IF is 100.36. Prof. Kyzioł is also the co-author of two book chapters, “Handbook of Composite from Renewable Materials”, Vol 4, Functionalization (2017, Wiley-Scrivener) and “Surface functionalization with biopolymers via plasma-assisted surface grafting and plasma-induced graft polymerization – materials for biomedical application” in vol. “Biopolymer Grafting: Applications” (2018, Elsevier).
Additionally, the results of his research were presented at 45 scientific conferences (including 34 international ones). He is a co-author of two patents (PL – 221932 B1, 2016) concerning a method of improving the mechanical properties of Al alloys and PL 236571 B1, 2021) which includes the use of a plasma chemical method to modify on lays for bumpers.
His conducted scientific research received several awards for scientific achievement from the Rector of AGH UST (2013, 2014, 2016, 2022). Furthermore, the results of the conducted studies concerning aluminum treatment (in cooperation with TUL) were distinguished, inter alia, at the international exhibition INTEX in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia, 2012). Additionally, at this exhibition the studies received a gold medal and during the exhibitions in Seul (Korea, 2012) and Cluj-Napoca (Romania, 2013) a gold and bronze medal, respectively.
