 Victor I.Maleev_VI_photo_2 Maleev
 Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds

Fields of expertise: asymmetric synthesis, chiral metal complexes, non-proteinogenic amino acids

Victor Maleev graduated from the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University in 1981. His diploma work was devoted to the development of new variations of asymmetric reduction of C=C and C=O bonds. Since 1981 he has been working at Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds. He successfully defended the PhD thesis on asymmetric C–C bond formation in the synthesis of amino acids under supervision of Prof. Yu. N. Belokon in 1989 and completed his habilitation in 2006. He was appointed a head of the Laboratory of Asymmetric Catalysis of INEOS RAS in 2009 and became a deputy director two years later. Nowadays, he is a head of the Department of Organoelement Compounds at INEOS RAS. His main research interests include different asymmetric transformations using chiral metal complexes.

Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds

Fields of expertise: magnetic resonance spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance, molecular magnetism, single molecule magnets, single ion magnets, spin crossover, paramagnetic NMR, electrocatalysis, lab automation

Valentin Novikov is a head of the Department of Physical Methods of INEOS RAS. He is responsible for supervising the research groups and laboratories which specialize in physical chemistry and physical methods for analysis. His main research interests include magnetic resonance spectroscopy (nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance), molecular magnetism, and electrocatalysis. A significant part of the results obtained under his guidance relate to the study of cage metal complexes (the so-called clathrochelates). The possibility of using of these complexes as single molecule magnets (a class of promising components for super-dense information storage) along with exceptionally strong effect of crystalline packing on their magnetic properties were discovered by an original application of paramagnetic NMR. Based on the NMR and EPR data, he showed that cobalt cage complexes possess a huge magnetic anisotropy, which is a characteristic that determines the practical potential of single molecule magnets as well as the paramagnetic tags.

 

 Trifonov_AA_photoAlexander A. Trifonov
 Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds

Fields of expertise: organometallic chemistry, coordination chemistry, homogeneous catalysis, lanthanides, synthesis, structure, reactivity

Alexander Trifonov studied chemistry at the State University of Gorky (USSR) and received his diploma degree in 1984. During his PhD studies he had been working at Razuvaev Institute of Organometallic Chemistry (Nizhny Novgorod) under supervision of Prof. M. N. Bochkarev and received his PhD at Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds (Moscow) in 1989. He did postdoctoral studies at the Technical University of Berlin (Prof. H. Schumann, 1991) and Université de Paris-Sud (Prof. H. Kagan, 1993–1995). In 1999–2000 he was an A. von Humboldt fellow in the research group of Prof. J. Okuda (Mainz University, Germany). Currently he is an acting director of INEOS RAS. His research interests lie in the area of synthesis of organometallic and coordination compounds of rare earth metals and their application in homogeneous catalysis and materials chemistry.

 

Serenko_OA_photoOlga A. Serenko
Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds

Fields of expertise: polymer composites and nanocomposites, structure, properties

Olga Serenko is a head of the Department of High-Molecular Compounds of INEOS RAS. She is an author and coauthor of more than 120 scientific publications, including 8 patents. Her main achievements include the definition of conditions for the appearance of a rigid core effect in hybrid nanoparticles, which is manifested as a size effect in nanocomposites, and elaboration of a theoretical model that takes into account the thermodynamic parameters of nanocomposites, in particular, internal configuration entropy of hybrid nanoparticles, which was approved experimentally. Her current research interests encompass different aspects of composite and nanocomposite materials.
