Main areas of research:

  • synthesis of modifying impurities for industrial polymers with improved performance: plasticizers for industrial thermoplastics with high migration resistance, heat-resistant biocides with low toxicity, anti-fouling agents and corrosion inhibitors for protective coatings;
  • synthesis of new monomers - internal rheological properties modifiers for polycondensation polymers;
  • surface chemical modification of polymers for medical purposes;
  • synthesis of new proton-conducting electrolytes based on ionic liquids and obtaining polymer-electrolyte membranes for fuel cells operated at temperatures above 100 °C.
