Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry

General Information

The Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan was founded in 1977. The Institute is the only research center in Central Asia working in the field of bioorganic chemistry. The Institute employs over 200 scientists, including 3 Academicians, 23 Doctors of Science, and 60 PhDs.

The Institute has 10 laboratories:

  • Chemistry of proteins and peptides;
  • Chemistry of enzymes;
  • Polyphenols;
  • Bioregulators;
  • Fine organic synthesis of physiologically active compounds;
  • Physico-chemical methods of research;
  • Chemistry of cellulose;
  • Processing of secondary resources;
  • Pharmacology;
  • Experiments & technology.

Institute’s Focus

The main research directions of the Institute are:

  • Study of bioorganic processes in animals and plants;
  • Study of the structural and functional dependence of biologically active substances;
  • Creation of environmentally friendly plant protection products;
  • Development of science-intensive technologies for the processing of secondary products extracted from animals and plants.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Phytohormone receptors and their regulatory role in defoliation of cotton;
  • Role of enzyme systems and biosynthesis of cellulose in formation of cotton fiber;
  • Development of the methods for creation of biosensors for testing the presence of toxic substances in food and environment;
  • Study of the structure and function of poison components of animals/spiders of Central Asia and development of effective serum against the venoms.
  • Complex chemical study of substances of cotton and soybeans, extraction of more than 100 individual compounds.
  • Development of new technologies in:
    – Reception of cottonseed oil and cake, containing trace amounts of gossypol, which were introduced at 11 vegetable oil extracting companies in Uzbekistan;
    – Development of more than 30 drugs on the basis of gossypol and its derivatives;
    – Development of drugs based on plants growing in Uzbekistan (Lagoden, Rutan, Providin, Timoptin, Polizhel, Biolon).
  • Annually, the Institute produces over 200 thousand sets of pheromone traps against the cotton pest of winter cutworm and more than 1 million for the cotton cutworm, which fully covers the demand of cotton farms in Uzbekistan.
