A.E. Arbuzov Institute of Organic and Physical Chemistry

Kazan Scientific Centre Russian Academy of Sciences

Laboratory of stereochemistry

The head of the Laboratory is Doctor of Chemistry, Professor Alexander A. Bredikhin.

Main research activity

  • Obtaining of chiral organic and organoelement compounds in the nonracemic forms using classic (asymmetric synthesis, diastereomers resolution, etc.) as well as nontraditional methods based on the phenomenon of spontaneous resolution of enanthiomers during crystallization.
  • Catalytic asymmetric synthesis.
  • Chiral recognition on the phase interface and in the condensed matter.
  • Chirality driven supramolecular association processes in the liquid, solid, and mesophases.
