Radovan Šebesta

Radovan Šebesta studied chemistry at the Comenius University in Bratislava, where he obtained his PhD under the guidance of Professor Marta Sališová. During his postdoctoral stay with Professor Dieter Seebach at the ETH Zurich, he studied β-amino acids and peptides. Then, he worked with Professor Ben Feringa in Groningen on Cu-catalyzed conjugate additions. In 2005, he returned to Comenius University where he is now a full Professor of Organic Chemistry. His research interests are new methodologies in asymmetric catalysis using organometallic reagents and catalysts, green chemistry methodologies as well as organocatalytic syntheses of biorelevant compounds.

Radovan Šebesta is guest editor of the thematic issue "New advances in asymmetric organocatalysis" in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry.
