General Information

The Ovcharenko Institute of Bio-colloidal Chemistry (IBCC) is a multidisciplinary institution specializing in the study of colloids, including biocolloids, for creating unique technologies for market-driven applications in medicine, environment and industry.

Founded in 1991, the Institute consists of four scientific departments, employing over 100 scientists and technical staff. Since its formation, researchers at the Institute have focused their attention on applying their expertise to market-driven problems; for example, the development of a new type of biosensors for electrochemical detection of heavy metals and toxic organic compounds. Today, a number of technologies developed at the Institute have been adopted for use in wide-ranging industrial sectors, including medicine.

The primary research areas at the Institute are:

  • Physics and colloid chemistry of disperse and nanosized systems; processes of their formation and self-organization (aggregation, stabilization, structure formation); microkinetics, and fractal properties.
  • Biocolloidal chemistry, including the investigation of cell membranes (physics of membrane-bonded ferments, membrane transport, energetics of bio-membranes, interaction of a bacterial cell with colloids of inorganic nature); development of physico-chemical bases for the development of bioactive, and biocompatible nanomaterials and technologies for their production. Colloid and bio-colloid processes for processing mineral raw materials and environment protection.
  • Physico-chemical mechanics of natural and technogeneous disperse systems and materials; processes of phase formation within such systems. The application of these technologies in industries.
  • Biotechnological processes in medicine; biosensor technologies in medicine and environment; nanobiotechnologies.
