Born: 1952

Interests: Organic Chemistry, Catalysis, Spectroscopy, Ideal Syntheses

Jeno Bodis received his Diploma in Chemistry at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj, Romania. After four years of industrial experience in “Terapia” Pharmaceutical Company he moved to the Chemical Research Institute in Cluj. Since 1990 he is a Faculty member at the Organic Chemistry Department of Babes-Bolyai University teaching courses in Organic Chemistry, Structure Determination of Organic Compounds, and Catalysis of Organic Reactions.
He worked as a visiting scientist in Hungary, The Netherlands, United States of America, Canada, and Germany.
The research topics of Jeno Bodis include Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic carbonylation of alcohols, hydratocarbonylation and hydroformylation of olefins, reductive amination, hydroamination, selective hydrogenation, polymerization, and FT-IR spectroscopic investigation of supported and unsupported metal catalysts.
