Field of interests:

Peculiarity, structure and physical-chemical properties of heteroatomic and elementorganic compounds based on molecular and submolecular levels by methods of molecular spectroscopy, mass- spectrometry, X-ray analysis and quantum chemistry.

Basic concepts:

  • Quantum chemical investigation of formation of ion-containing monomers, macromolecules and hybrid nanocomposites based on iodine-substituted aldehydes, ketones, acids, ethers and iodine- metals.
  • Design, investigation of structure and properties of new г hypo — and hypervalent compounds of 14-th group.
  • Investigation pendulous systems based on bifurcated hydrogen bond, formed by different heteroatomic structures.
  • Photophysical properties and photochemical reactions of molecules, containing pyrrole, pyridine and other heterocyclic blocks.
  • Stereoelectronic structures of new heteroatomic and elementorganic compounds and their complexes with halogenide metal by molecular spectroscopy and X-ray analysis.
  • Estimating the paths of fragmentation under electron or chemical ionization in a gas phase of N-,S- containing organic compounds.
  • Elemental and spectral analysis of organic and elementorganic compounds.
  • Servicing of projects, carried out by different laboratories, i.e. analysis and identification of new compounds by molecular spectroscopy, X-ray and elemental microanalysis.

Laboratory equipment: X-Ray diffractometer Bruker D8 VENTURE, X-ray diffract meter D2 PHASER, IR Fourier spectrometer Vertex 70 with Raman detachable device, IR Fourier spectrometer Excalibur HE 3100 Varian, Element analyzer Flash EA 1112 CHN-O/MAS 200, Element analyzer Thermo Flash EA 2000 CHNS, Impulse EPR spectrometer with Fourier transformation ELEXSYS E580, Nanosecond pulse photolysis instrument, Chromato-mass-spectrometer QP-5050A, Chromato-mass-spectrometer Agilent 5975 with chemical ionization, Mass-spectrometer TOF/TOF Ultra Flex, Electron microscope ТМ 3000 Hitachi, Spectrum fluorimeter FLPS920 Edinburg Instruments, UV/VIS- spectrometer LAMBDA 35.


The qualified specialists and modern laboratory equipment, corresponding to the world standards, is the basis for fundamental research of the „Analysis of organic substances” department of „Baikal Analytical Center for collective use SB RAS”. Annually, the students of chemical department of the Irkutsk State University are trained on the experimental base of the laboratory.

Main achievements:

§ The existence of stable „facial” complexes of trivalent C and Si atoms with arrenes have been theoretically predicted.

Carbotranofanes — the first neutral hypervalent compounds with trigonal — pyramidal carbon atom (10-С-5) have been theoretically designed.

§ The new approaches to analyze the bond nature and discrimination of the weak nonvalent interactions have been developed. Criterions and distinctive peculiarities of weak intramolecular hydrogen bonds and van der Waals interactions as repulsive as attractive nature have been defined. This method allows to estimate the energy of such interactions.

§ The mechanism of C-C bond formation has been found in the reaction of deiodination of iodine derivatives of ketones at the obtaining of di- and polyketones, polythiones and macroheterocyclic systems.
