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 organometallic and coordination compounds

The Laboratory of Organometallic and Coordination Compounds was organized in July 2008 on the basis of the Laboratory of organometallic synthesis.

The Head of the Laboratory is Academician
Oleg Geroldovich Sinyashin.

Main research activity

  •  Elaboration of procedures for synthesis of new types of cyclic and macrocyclic organophosphorus compounds (cyclic polyphosphines, heterocyclic aminomethylphosphines and frame macrocyclic phosphines) and design on this basis of metal complexes and supramolecular assemblies with prescribed 3D-arrangement and physical and chemical properties (solubility, optical activity, catalytic activity, magnetic susceptibility, molecular recognition).
  •  Study of cycloaddition reactions of organic and organophosphorus azides and carbenes with [60]fullerenes for purposeful synthesis of electron-acceptor organo-[60]fullerenes and creation on this basis of the complexes with organic donors possessing unusual photoelectric properties.
  • Development of chemical and electrochemical procedures for the synthesis of organophosphorus compounds from white phosphorus, and highly reactive σ-organyl derivatives of transition metals as a basis for chemical technologies of new generation.
