Molecular Complexity

Organic chemistry is an area of modern science, which is in highest demand today, as it helps to improve the quality of human life and to design new generations of drugs including those to prevent and treat the socially important diseases. Most of the current industrial processes are based on the synthesis and processing of organic substances. Definitely, organic molecules are and will remain among the top priorities in the long-term development of chemical industry, including energy and fuel sectors.

3D Printing in Chemistry

3D printing can significantly speed up the experimental chemical research, as it makes possible to manufacture even complex multi-component chemical equipment directly in the laboratory without a manufacturing delay. This applies both to the fundamental chemical research, as well as to research and engineering projects. We believe that this innovation can be a valuable tool in the creation of research equipment in chemical sciences.

New Life of Old Molecules

A joint project of scientists from St. Petersburg State University and Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry investigated chemical applications of calcium carbide. The project advances the idea of diverse acetylene chemistry on the basis of carbide technology. Using the proposed approach, cheap and available carbide raw material has been effectively transformed into valuable products that are in demand in material science and organic synthesis.

Welcome to our lab!

What do we know about the life cycle of molecules and pathways of chemical reactions?

Laboratory of Elected Member of the Russian Academy of Science Valentine Ananikov introduces an interdisciplinary research project "Molecular complexity and transformation".

The main research areas of the laboratory: catalysis, organic synthesis, nanotechnology, carbon materials, photochemistry, molecular modeling, organic and physical chemistry.

The aim of the laboratory is to create an integrated methodology for experimental and theoretical study of the catalytic functionalization of organic molecules and the development of new methods in organic chemistry.

The application of the studied processes is linked to organic synthesis, an area that made a remarkable impact on the history of Russian chemistry. The contribution of Russian science to this bracnch is widely recognized in the world, because of the works of the prominent Russian scientists like Alexander Butlerov, Vladimir Favorsky, Nikolay Zelinsky, Mikhail Kucherov, Ivan Nazarov, Alexey Balandin.
