Institute of Chemistry

General Information

The Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova was founded in 1959 on the basis of the sectors of organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry and the laboratory of analytical chemistry of the Moldavian Branch of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR.

Institute’s Focus

  • Investigations of the influence of electronic structure on the nuclei configuration and dynamics have been crowned with the discovery entitled „The effect of tunnel cleavage of energetic levels of polyatomic systems in the state of electronic degeneration”;
  • Developments in the theory and practice of the template synthesis of coordination compounds of transition metals with organic ligands of chelating and macrocyclic type. Original methods have been devised related to the synthesis of new coordination compounds of biometals with polyfunctional ligands, including compounds with significant antitumoral, antiviral, anti-chlorosis activity, as well as compounds with psychotropic properties;
  • The laws of superacidic cyclisation reaction of terpenes have been established for various classes of terpene compounds (alcohols, their acetates, acids, esters, phenyl sulphones etc.);
  • Technologies of the production of activated carbon from vegetal by-products have been developed to be used for the detoxification of human body, for treatment of waste waters, surface and ground water.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Coordination compounds with various useful properties: polynuclear compounds of Cr(III) as molecular magnets, catalysts of technological and biotechnological processes, macrocyclic colorants for plastics and synthetic fibres; new compounds for the obtaining of extra-pure metals, compounds for ion selective electrodes; agents for anticorrosive coating and protection of metals;
  • Coordination combinations with anticancer, antiviral, antibacterial, anticoccide, antidote properties; growth regulators for plants and algae;
  • Odorant products, aromatizers and biologically active products on the basis of natural terpenes, useful in tobacco processing, perfumery, medicine;
  • Methods of obtaining organic substances with psycho-stimulating effects, anticonvulsant, sedative, tranquilizing, antimycotic effects; regulators of cardiac activity; compounds with significant tuberculostatic activity;
  • Procedures of obtaining and regeneration of activated carbons from vegetal wastes; medicinal preparations on the basis of activated carbons, catalysts and adsorbents for the purification of underground and natural waters;
  • Efficient methods of dosing heavy metals (Pb, Cu, Fe, Ni, Zn, and Mo) in foodstuffs and environmental objects;
  • New preparations from grape seeds for medicine, veterinary and agriculture;
  • New compositions for covering the interior walls of buildings.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

The Institute participated in different international projects funded by INTAS, STCU, CRDF, MRDA, SCOPES, BMBF, RFBR, NATO and collaborates with many scientific centers, such as:

  • Romania (University „Politehnica”, Bucharest; Institute ECOIND, Bucharest; University „A. I. Cuza”, Iasi; University „Gh. Asachi”, Iasi; National Institute of Materials Physics, Bucharest; Institute of Physical Chemistry „G. Murgulescu”, Bucharest; Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry “P. Poni”, Iasi; Institute of Organic Chemistry „C. D. Nenitescu”, Bucharest);
  • Ukraine (Institute of Colloid Chemistry and Water Chemistry);
  • Russia (Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry; The Association of Science and Production „Neorganica”, Electrostali, Moscow region; Institute of Technical Physics, Kazan);
  • Belarus (Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry);
  • Poland (Chemistry Faculty of „A. Mickiewicz” University, Poznan); Institute of Physical Chemistry; Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics);
  • Holland (Agrarian University from Vageningen);
  • USA (Centre for Marine Sciences, University of North Carolina at Wilmington; Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Texas at Austin);
  • Spain (Department of Organic Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Valencia);
  • Italy (Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry, CNR, Pozzuoli (Na)); Laboratorio di Chimica Bioorgabica Universita degli Studi di Trento, Italia; Dipartimento di Medicina, Chirurgia e Odontoiatria);
  • Germany (University of Leipzig, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Leipzig);
  • France (Laboratory of Synthesis and Study of Systems of Biological Interest and Laboratory of Molecular and Macromolecular Photochemistry, University Blaise Pascal, Aubiere Cedex).
