The basis for drugs suppressing viruses and fungi was created in Zelinsky Institute

Despite the successful use of antibiotics and antifungal drugs in modern medicine, rising resistance to them has been increasingly observed in recent years. In this regard, there is a real need for innovative solutions aimed at stopping this problem and reducing the burden of infection resistant to existing drugs.

Promising high-energy compounds were synthesized by researchers from Zelinsky Institute

Over the last few decades, molecules representing a combination of aromatic nitrogen-oxygen heterocycles and energy functional groups, such as NO2, N3, NHNO2, N=N and N=N(O), as substituents have attracted considerable interest in the search for new explosives. Researchers from Laboratody № 19 of Zelinsky Institute are actively involved in the research in this direction.

Researchers from Zelinsky Institute discovered an unusual phenomenon in organocatalytic reaction involving N-heterocyclic cerbenes

It is known that depending on the nature of catalyst-substrate interactions, N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-mediated organocatalytic reactions proceed by two principal pathways that involve either covalent bonding or non-covalent interactions. A classical well-established pathway involves Breslow intermediates and is applicable for highly electrophilic or non-enolizable substrates (such as aldehydes, ketenes, acyl fluorides or aryl esters). Another pathway is characteristic to uncommon organocatalytic reactions of an NHC with enolizable and less nucleophilic ketones, diketones or esters where the carbene acts as a strong base.
