Head of Laboratory, Dr. of Sciences (Chemistry), Associate Professor

  • Development of the basics of flow analysis methods, development of automated methods to determine biologically active substances.
  • Creation and study of nanostructured electrode materials and electrochemical sensors with desired properties. Synthesis of new organic reagents for test methods of analysis.
  • Theory and practice of application of heterogeneous systems with binary reagents. Extraction-pyrolytic method to produce functional inorganic materials, creation and application of nanomaterials based on calcium silicates.
  • Theoretical foundations and instrumentation of the processes of extraction, separation, and purification of substances by liquid extraction and liquid-liquid chromatography. Development of sorption methods, creation of sorption materials.
  • Creation of optical sensors based on photonic crystals with polymer matrices.

Automated methods to determine biologically active organic substances were proposed. New composite materials based on polymer membranes containing carbon nanoforms in ionic liquids were studied. Electrochemical sensors for biologically active compounds were created. New solid-phase chromogenic reagents for optical test tools were synthesized.

A new class of extraction processes was created, namely binary extraction; the regularities with salts of organic acids and bases were studied. An extraction-pyrolytic method for producing functional inorganic materials was developed; methods for the synthesis of finely dispersed calcium hydrosilicates using extractants (modifiers) were suggested.

The fundamental bases and equipment for multiphase liquid extraction processes were developed. The foundations of the processes of liquid-liquid chromatography with a free stationary phase and pulsation-cyclic chromatography were suggested.
