Petr Palivec

  • Guide of South Africa

Hi! My name in Petr Palivec and I’ll be your guide during the International Chemistry Olympiad in July 2018. I am 19 years old and I currently live in a small town near Prague called Rakovník (which can be translated as “Crayfish Town”). I studied chemistry at high school (Masaryk’s High School of Chemistry it Prague) and from September I’m going to study at University of Chemistry and Technology it Prague.

I’m really keen on chemistry, mostly organic. I also participated in the National Chemistry Olympiad this year but in a different category, so I’m not allowed to compete at IChO. Nevertheless, I can still be your guide :-).

In my free time I watch films and series and play the piano. I also really like fireworks and I help my friends who have a company that makes professional fireworks.

Congratulation to all of you for your success at the Chemistry Olympiad and good luck during IChO! I look forward to meeting you!
