The Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials (CMPW) is an institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, conducting activities pursuant to the Act on the Polish Academy of Sciences (Journal of Laws No. 96, item 619 from April 30, 2010). Our primary goal is to conduct interdisciplinary scientific research regarding polymers, various carbon forms, obtaining and testing the properties of new polymer and carbon materials, as well as to conduct development works and to implement their results in the economy.

The beginnings of the current Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CMPW PAN) date back to 1954 when the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw opened a Petrochemical Laboratory in Gliwice – the precursor of the current Center, thus initiating the research activity of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Silesia.

In short

The Center belongs to category A of scientific facilities in Poland. It was established on January 1, 2007 as a result of a merger of the Center of Polymer Chemistry of PAN in Zabrze and the Institute of Carbochemistry of PAN in Gliwice – two centers of the Polish Academy of Sciences which, for many years, had been conducting systematic work on the production and properties of macromolecular polymer and carbon materials.
