Welcome to our lab!

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

Laboratory of academician of 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 branch 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.
