Scientific directions of the Department:

The department is engaged in the development of methods of synthesis of potential biologically active compounds of natural origin, the development of new organophosphorus reagents, new reagents and methods of asymmetric synthesis of organophosphorus compounds, chemo- and biocatalysts.

Advanced research and development:

The concept of multiple asymmetric induction as a highly efficient method of increasing the stereoselectivity of reactions and synthesis of optically pure organophosphorus compounds has been developed.
Development of methods of asymmetric synthesis of physiologically active organophosphorus compounds.
A fundamentally new method for the asymmetric synthesis of enantiomerically pure phosphines and aminophosphines has been developed using nucleophilic substitution in a phosphorus atom in the presence of bases. for asymmetric recovery and ketophosphonates on the basis of soda and tartaric acid borohydride.
Development of methods for asymmetric synthesis of C-P isosteric analogs carbohydratphosohates of natural origin (glucosephosphonates, galaktozophosphonates et al.).
Development of methods of asymmetric synthesis of hydroxyphosphonates, aminophosphonic acids: carnitine, gamma-amino-beta-hydroxybutyric acid, isostatic, etc.
Asymmetric synthesis of organophosphorus analogues of taxol,
Development of methods of asymmetric synthesis of bis-bis. Synthesis of phosphorus analogues of indoprofen, isoindolinone-1-one, epoxyisoindolinone.

Department achievements:

During the department's existence, two monographs were published, as well as several chapters and chapters in monographs published abroad, 10 reviews in international journals, more than 400 articles, 200 of which were overseas and 7 PhD theses were defended. The achievements of the department have been regularly reported at international conferences on organophosphorus chemistry and national conferences

Researches performed:

The department's research is aimed at developing preparative methods for the synthesis of potential organophosphorus biologically active compounds based on the original reagents created by the department's staff. This approach makes it possible to synthesize specific derivatives of bioactive organophosphorus compounds that are difficult or impossible to synthesize in other ways.
The search for bioactive drugs among synthesized organophosphorus compounds is carried out as employees of other departments of biological direction of the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry.
