Igor O. Fritsky was born in Kyiv.
Graduated from the Kiev State University named after T.G. Shevchenko in 1987 . In 1987-1990 he is a PhD student, in 1990-1995 – an assistant professor, in 1995-1998 and 2001-2004 - Associate professor at the Department of Inorganic chemistry, in 2004-2005 - Professor Department of Inorganic chemistry, since 2005 – Head of the Department of Physical Chemistry. In 1991-1993 and 1994-1998 he is the vice-dean of the international relations at the department of chemistry. In 1990 he recieved his PhD degree (thesis “Synthesis, structure and properties of coordination compounds of 3d-metals with the pyruvil amino acids oximes”). In 2003 he passed a habilitation (habilitation thesis “Polynuclear coordination compounds of transition metals with N-ligands toward modelling the active metalloenzymes sites”). In 2007 he recieved a Ukrainian state prize in science and technology. He got a Honorary title “Honored Science and Technology Worker of Ukraine” (2017). He is a winner of the State Prize of Ukraine in the field of Science and Technology (2017).
