The scientific activity of the department is concerned with the fundamental problems of the relation between the structure and physical and chemical properties of the co-ordination compounds.

The main fields of the department’s research are:

•  Coordination chemistry: synthesis, structure and study of the physical and chemical properties of the metallo-organic and co-ordination compounds with O-, N-, S-, Se-, As-, Te-, P-containing ligands.

•  Magnetic properties of bi- and poly-nuclear clusters, based on the transition metals’ complexes with poly-functional hydrazones and Schiff bases.

•  The study of the macro-cyclic complexes, containing ferrocene and ruthenocene moieties.

•  Quantum chemical calculations of the co-ordination compounds' electronic structure.

•  Synthesis and investigation of a phosphorus-organic compounds and their complexes with transition metals.

•  ESR spectroscopy of the transition metals’ complexes with organic ligands.

•  The study of the structural isomerization and isomeric transformations of the organic and co-ordination compounds, including photochromic properties of the molecules, containing spiro-pyrane’s unit.

•  The research of the surface processes and phase interactions in the disperse systems, the obtaining of the colloid state metals and nano-sized inorganic and co-ordination compounds’ particles.


The tutorial staff of the department is involved into educational process in the university attending a number of the basis and special disciplines for the students of the chemical and biological faculties.
