Laboratory of Carbohydrate Chemistry (N21)

Head: Yuri A. Knirel ScD (Chem.) (e-mail: knirelioc.ac.ru, tel. +7(499) 137-6148)

The laboratory was organized in 1959 and had been headed by Full Memb. Acad. Sc. Prof. N.K. Kochetkov, until 1989. In 1989-2005, Laboratory was headed by Prof. V.N. Shibaev.

Research areas and main results

Chemical synthesis of biologically important carbohydrates and their derivatives (dendritic manno-oligosaccharides, sialo-oligosaccharides, lipochito-oligosaccharide nodulation factors, and carbohydrate conjugates with diverse physiologically active compounds).

Chemical synthesis of phosphorylated intermediates in the biosynthesis of complex carbohydrates (polyprenyl phosphate and glycosyl phosphate derivatives and analogs) and studies on the biosynthesis of glycoproteins and bacterial polysaccharides.

Structural elucidation of complex carbohydrates of the diverse origin: bacterial polysaccharides and lipopolysaccharides, glycoproteins, and glycolipids.

We are happy to invite you to Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry to take part in the International Conference ChemTrends-2018 on Organic & Hybrid Functional Materials and Additive Technologies to be held on September 23-28, 2018.
Professor Mario Pargliaro Lecturing at Zelinsky Institute Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
Selective In-Situ Metal Azide Reactions Alexey Sukhorukov, N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Moscow, Russia, and colleagues studied the selective reactions of in-situ generated metal azides on N,N-bis(oxy)enamines. By combining readily generated bis(oxy)enamine substrates with sodium azide and one of a variety of metal salts (including Mg, Cu, Zn, Co, and Ni), the researchers showed that the metal cation selectively alters the mechanism to favor the formation of specific organoazide products.
On February 1st, Prof. Gleb Sukhorukov from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, gave a lecture “Remote Controlled Delivery Nanosystems” at ZIOC.
