Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry (N16)

Head: Alexei M. Sakharov, DSs (Chem.) (e-mail: as@zelinsky.ru, tel. +7(499)137-1353)

The laboratory was established in 1963 and headed by Prof. V.A. Ponomarenko, Associate Member Acad. Sc. (1963-1990) and Prof. S.P. Krukovsky (1991-2001).

Research areas and main results

New methods for the synthesis of fluoropolymers and oligomers with the predetermined structure and properties, mainly perfluoropolyethers, fluorine-containing heteroaromatic polymers and poly(fluoroorganosiloxanes), and manufacturing of materials on their basis.

Studies on co-polymerization of alkene oxides with CO2 for the synthesis of poly(alkylenecarbonates), a novel class of environmentally safe thermoplastics.

Development of new methods for the synthesis of low-density polymers of diverse structure for medical and engineering applications.

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.
