The scholarship by UCT Prague was awarded to a student from the Faculty of Chemical Technology Sergej Mrkobrada. Mr. Mrkobrada's contribution to the internationalization of University of Chemistry and Technology primarily lies in his extraordinary involvement in research already during his master's studies.
Sergej Mrkobrada's research activity focuses on the development of new procedures for the preparation of functionalized compounds by the principles of green chemistry. The primary focus of his scientific interest is the preparation of natural compounds containing substituted aromatic hydrocarbons. In the long term, the observed reactivity will enable the transformation of natural compounds with high chemoselectivity for target-oriented organic synthesis.
