Laboratory of Organic Synthesis

PI: doc. RNDr. Ctibor Mazal, CSc.


We are involved in synthesis of molecular building blocks, the macrocyclic in particular, and in investigation of their molecular and supramolecular properties with respect to possible applications in other fields of chemistry and materials sciences.

Research Topics

  • Shape persistent fully conjugated and non-conjugated macrocycles
  • Bicyclo[1.1]pentane chemistry
