Milan Klikar received his Master's degree in Organic chemistry from the University of Pardubice in June 2013 defending diploma work entitled "Barbituric acid as an acceptor moiety in push-pull chromophores". From October 2013 he pursued studies in the BuReS group as Ph.D. student. Since October 2014, Milan joined the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Technology as scientific researcher. In autumn 2016, he attended a three-month internship abroad at IUT in Lannion (France) under the supervision of Sylvain Achelle. In November 2017 he defended his Ph.D. work entitled "Malonic acid derivatives as acceptor parts of push-pull chromophores". Milan’s main research interest involves synthesis and characterization of new NLO as well as organic redox materials. He is in charge of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Cyclic Voltammetry (CV).
