A.E. Arbuzov Institute of Organic and Physical Chemistry

Kazan Scientific Centre Russian Academy of Sciences

Laboratory of organoelemental synthesis

Laboratory of Organoelemental Synthesis was founded in 1964 by the Corresponding Member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR A. N. Pudovik, who supervised it until 1989. From 1989 until 2008, the Laboratory was headed Doctor of Chemistry, Professor M. A. Pudovik. Since 2008, the Head of the Laboratory is Doctor of Chemistry, Professor Alexander R. Burilov



Main research activity

  •  Methods of synthesis of novel various types and classes of polyfunctional organophosphorus compounds; fundamental studies of nonclassical Arbuzov’s reaction in a set of various derivatives of P(III) acids;
  •  Synthesis of complex spatially organized structures of novel types – monocyclic, bicyclic, macrocyclic, carcass including phosphorus atoms with the coordination number equal to four, five, and six.
  •  Study of the reactions of phenol, resorcinol and their derivatives with phosphorus-containing acetals and alkoxyvinylphosphonates of different nature, resulting in the formation of new linear and macrocyclic phosphorus-containing polyphenols, as well as chemical modification of calix[4]resorcinols with functional groups at the lower and upper rims of calixarene matrix with the formation of spatially-assembled structures (cavitands, carceplexes, and others).
