Dr. Uno Mäeorg
Dr. Uno Mäeorg (PhD in Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry) is an expert in the synthesis of acetylene and alkene derivatives, indole derivatives, protected and multisubstituted (aryl, alkyl, acyl) hydrazine derivatives and the derivatization of carbon nanostructures. Dr. Mäeorg has more than 60 publications in peer-reviewed international journals and 20 years of experience in contract R&D projects. These projects have involved the commercial preparation of various pheromones, further successfully used in the agriculture, and several original approaches for the synthesis of acetylenes, stereoselective methods for preparation of alkenes and synthesis of x-ray contrast medium that have been developed and applied in multikilo scale production. The technologies were patented in Russia.
