Our student, Botagoz Kuspangaliyeva, is admitted for an internship in Kashiwa, Japan!

Apr 2nd, 2018

Botagoz Kuspangaliyeva is 3rd year undergraduate student, who works under supervision of Prof. Inglezakis in ESTg group. She is admitted for the University of Tokyo Summer Internship program (UTSIP) in Kashiwa. 

This program aims to expose the undergraduates to world-leading research activities in the field of natural science for 6-weeks and its scholarship is awarded only to 30 students through a competitive process around the world. She is assigned to a laboratory of Professor Yoshito Oshima in the Department of Environmental Studies and will conduct a research project on organic synthesis using “supercritical water” as an environmental technology under his guidance.
Supercritical water is a promising reaction medium for organic reactions because its solvent properties can be varied with the temperature and the pressure, and these properties affect reaction kinetics and mechanisms. The aim of this study is to propose a methodology which enables to control the reaction rate and the selectivity of organic synthesis reactions only with the change of temperature and pressure of supercritical water.

We wish  Botagoz that  this internship would be very productive and contribute to further success in her research activities!
