Laboratory of Polyunsaturated Compounds (N7)

Head: Prof. Vladimir V. Veselovsky, DSc (e-mail: vesioc.ac.ru, tel. +7(499)135-8854)

The laboratory was founded and headed by Prof. A.V. Semenovsky in 1971-1977, then, in 1978-1992, it was headed by Prof. A.M. Moiseenkov, Associate Member of RAS, and by DSc Natalia Ya. Grigoryeva in 1992-1995.

Research areas

Developing new methods of the directed synthesis of natural low-molecular bioregulators from various classes such as strobilurin antibiotics, (iso)prostane cyclopentanoids, steroid saponins, polyprenols, pest pheromones and their modified analogs as well as of precursors and auxiliary reagents for their preparation.

Main results

A new method of the stereoselective synthesis of strobilurine antibiotics.

A novel approach to the synthesis of natural cyclopentanoids of the isoprostane series.

A new facile synthesis of a precursor of anticancer steroidal saponin OSW-1.

A synthesis of new biologically active analogs of undecaprenylphosphate.

Important events:

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.
“We can record up to one thousand spectra per day” Director of Zelinsky Institute about Devising New Molecules
Steep and Thorny Way of a Scientist in Russia Prof. Valentine Ananikov participated in the plenary panel discussion HR Challenge for the Society held in the framework of VII Russian National Congress of Young Scientists and Specialists on November 30 – December 1 2016 in MEPhI.
