A.E. Arbuzov Institute of Organic and Physical Chemistry

Subdivision of the Federal State Budgetary Institution of Science "Kazan Scientific Center of Russian Academy of Sciences"

Laboratory of functional materials

The Laboratory of functional materials created in 2013 on the basis of the Laboratory of Physiologically Active Elementorganic Compounds and the Laboratory of Optical Polymer Materials. The head of the Laboratory is Doctor of Chemistry Marina Balakina.



Main research activity

  • Synthesis of new organic compounds on the basis of C60 and C70 fullerene derivatives aimed at the search for biologically active preparations. These investigations resulted in the creation of new highly effective antileucemic compounds on the basis of nano-size bis-nitroxide methanofullerenes and yclophosphamide.
  • Elaboration of the approaches for the synthesis of reactive epoxyamine and methacrylate polymers, containing NLO 4-amino-4¢-nitroazobenzene group in the main and side chain of the macromolecule, as well as polymers with dendrite multichromophore fragments.
  • Study of electret and NLO properties of thin films of the obtained polimer materials.
