Prof. Goran Nikolic

University of Nis, Serbia

Dr. Goran Nikolić was born in Knez Selo (Niš, Serbia) on 1 November 1966. He received his B.Sc. degree in Chemistry (1990), M.Sc. degree in Organic Chemical Technology and Polymer Engineering (1996), and finally his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering (2002) from the University of Niš. Currently, he is a full professor at the same university, on Pharmaceutical-cosmetic engineering group of subjects at Faculty of Technology in Leskovac. His research activities are: quality control and stability of drugs, development of new pharmaceutical products (antianemic, antiseptic), pharmaceutical ingredients (synthesis and characterization), polynuclear and biocomplexes, surfactants. His competences are experience: in team work as a researcher, in project management, and managing of academic institution at different levels (vice dean, department chairman, head of chromatographic and spectrosopic laboratories, president of the quality assurance at the Faculty, and a member of the Committee for the improvement of the quality of the University). He is a member of the several national projects in the technological development area (granted by the Ministry of Science and Technological Development, Republic of Serbia), and member of numerous TEMPUS Joint European projects of sustainable technologies, environmental application and management courses (JPHES 2013, JPHES 2010, MCHEM 2010, IB-JEP 19020). He is a member of Serbian Chemical Society and Physicochemical Association of Serbia, and member of the Editorial Board of the journal Advanced Technologies. He has authored more than 300 scientific papers (in international and national scientific journals, on international conferences), numerous technological solutions for pharmaceutical industry, national monographies, international patents, university textbooks, invitation lecturers. He is the referee in numerous international and national journals, and editor of two international monographs on FTIR spectroscopy (InTech Open).

  • Carotenoids

    Carotenoids are one of the most widespread pigment groups distributed in nature; more than 700 natural carotenoids have been described so far. These pigments are known for versatile roles they play in living organisms; however, their most pivotal function is involvement in scavenging of reactive oxygen species and photoprotection. In the same time, carotenoids as natural pigments with important biological activities, such as antioxidant and provitamin A activity, have a great potential in the food, feed and pharmaceutical industries. They can be either extracted from plants and algae or synthesized by various microorganisms, including bacteria, yeasts, filamentous fungi and microalgae.
