The laboratory was established in 1963 and was headed by Full Member of RAS Kh.M. Minachev until 1990.
Research areas and main results
The use of zeolites and metal-zeolite systems in the catalysis (selective oxidation and oxidative acetoxylation of lower olefins and alcohols into carbonyl compounds and esters, hydrogenation and isomerization of hydrocarbons, and other reactions).
Development and investigation of new oxide catalysts for the preparation of synthesis gas, olefins, high-purity hydrogen, and other valuable products from hydrocarbon components of natural gas.
