Laboratory of Mathematical Chemistry and Computer Design (N44)

Head: Nikolay S. Zefirov, Prof., Full Member of RAS (e-mail: smolenskioc.ac.ru, tel. +7(499)135-9089)

The laboratory was founded in 1987 by its current leader.

Research Areas

Search for new approaches to solving the "structure-property" problem.

Evolvement of a basically new trend in quantum chemistry based on the study of topological and geometrical structure of nodular varieties of wave functions.

Main Results

Software was developed to assist chemical design, particularly hierarchic planning of key steps in multi-step syntheses, investigation of carbocationic rearrangements and classification, enumeration and prediction of new ring transformations in heterocycles.

Algorithms for a computer-aided search of organic reactions were implemented and used as a basis for the prediction of novel reactions.

An efficient generator of chemical structures was developed.

Software was designed for identifying previously unknown quantitative structure-activity relationships and for predicting molecules compounds with pregiven activity/property values on the basis of various structural descriptors.

Important events:

Congratulations! Valentine Ananikov has been elected to Academia Europaea! The European Academy of Sciences (Academia Europaea) was founded in 1988. It unites about four thousand globally acknowledged experts in mathematics, medicine, natural sciences, humanities, law, economy, and social and political sciences from many countries of Europe. Among its members are also European scientists who live in other regions of the world. Currently, it includes seventy two Nobel laureates and it should be highlighted that many of them were elected to the Academy before winning the Prize.
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.
