Prof. Igor O. Fritsky





















Head of the physical chemistry department

Dr. Prof. Fritsky Igor Olegovitch


Igor O. Fritsky was born in Kyiv.
In 1987 he graduated from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. In 1987-1990 he is a PhD student, in 1990-1995 – an assistant professor, in 1995-1998 and 2001-2004 - an associate professor of the inorganic chemistry department, in 2004-2005 - a professor of the inorganic chemistry department, since 2005 – the head of the physical chemistry department.

In 1991-1993 and 1994-1998 he is the vice-dean of the international relations at the department of chemistry. In 1990 he recieved his PhD degree (thesis “Synthesis, structure and properties of coordination compounds of 3d-metals with the pyruvil amino acids oximes”). In 2003 he passed a habilitation (habilitation thesis “Polynuclear coordination compounds of transition metals with N-ligands toward modelling the active metalloenzymes sites”). In 2007 he recieved a Ukrainian state prize in science and technology.

I.O. Fritsky worked in the universities of London, Leeds (UK), Seville (Spain), Göttingen (Germany) and Wroclaw (Poland). In 1998-2001 he was performing a scientific work in universities of Mainz and Heidelberg (Germany). Now he gives lectures in next courses: “Biophysical chemistry”, “Magnetochemistry”, “Physical chemistry of coordination compounds", "Chemistry of metalloenzymes" (for students of the Chemistry department).
Scientific interests: Physical inorganic chemistry; allosteric biomimetic catalysis; bioinorganic modelling of metalloenzymes; synthesis, structural studies, magnetic and electrochemical properties of polynuclear coordination compounds; studies on the formation of complexes in solutions; supramolecular chemistry.

Prof. I.O. Fritsky is a member of a scientific board of Ukrainian Academy of Science in inorganic chemistry, a member of the editorial boards of «Ukrainian Chemistry Journal» and an international journal «Bioinorganic Chemistry and Applications», a member of 2 special boards for the defence of thesis. He recieved numerous grants from the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, NATO, INTAS, the British Council, the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). I.O. Fritsky frequently gives speaches at the international conferences, he is repeatedly invited to give the lectures in the universities of Heidelberg, Göttingen, Strasbourg, Debrecen, Wroclaw.
Prof. I.O. Fritsky is an author of over 250 scientific papers, including about 100 journal articles. He supervised 11 PhD works.
