Matúš Chvojka


In 2018, I have finished my Bachelor’s studies in the Masaryk University, Brno, Czech republic. I did my research project in the company CF Plus Chemicals, where I was interested in synthesis and reactivity of substituted tetrafluoroethyl Togni reagents. Then I continued to pursue my Master studies in the group of Supramolecular chemistry in the Masaryk University. I finished my thesis project “Fluorinated bambusurils” in 2020 and was awarded a Department of the Chemistry Award for it.

I have started my PhD studies in autumn 2020 continuing on the research of bambusurils in the group of Supramolecular chemistry at the Masaryk University. I have obtained an Aspirant grant from the FNRS in 2021, which allowed me to start a joint PhD and join the Transport team in the EMNS.
