In 2021, we celebrated the one-hundred-tenth anniversary of the establishment of what is now the Faculty of Chemistry at Brno University of Technology (BUT). Its origins can be traced back to the official approval for the establishment of the Brno Czech Technical University, Department of Chemistry on 8 November 1911, and it is therefore one of the oldest Czech chemistry departments. In 2022 we also had reason to celebrate, as was exactly 30 years since the faculty was re-established in 1992.

Immerse yourself in history for a while and read how it all began – get to know the important personalities and key events that shaped the history of the faculty.
