Basic scientific achievements

Below is the list of academician Abel Maharramov`s major scientific achievements in various fields of chemistry:

In the field of organic chemistry:

1. The new synthesis method known as the “Doping effect” was first established in the field of organic chemistry. Thus, certain class of difficult to obtain, or practically impossible organic compounds were synthesized by this method.

2. Firstly, conformational analysis of 12-membered cycles was studied. Then, their saturated and unsaturated derivatives were synthesized and their molecular and crystal structures studied by X-Ray structure analysis method.

3. On the basis of catalytic olefination reaction, new results have been obtained in the field of synthesis of halogen-substituted olefins, X-Ray structure analysis of reaction products and their usage in delicate organic synthesis.

4. The method of template synthesis of 1,3,5-triazole pentadiene series of transition metals based on trichloroacetonitrile was developed and the role of non-covalent halogen compounds in the synthesis and formation of crystals was studied by means of the X-Ray structure analysis method.

5. In the field of multicomponent condensation reactions, double condensates of aromatic aldehydes with ketoesters and diketones containing active methylene have been obtained, which served as a basis for further synthesis of alicyclic, heterocyclic, bicyclic and spirocyclic systems containing nitrogen of various structures.

6. Many optical active compounds were synthesized with asymmetric Hans reaction and the effect of chiral organic catalyser’s nature and temperature to the reaction output and optical cleanness degree was investigated.

7. Effective synthesis method of aromatic 1.2-aminoalcohols in water was developed utilizing interaction of aryl substituted 1.2-chlorohydrins with various amines.

8. Alkalization reaction in the presence of certain 1.3-dikarbonyle compounds with epichlorohydrins on various terms was studied, function substituting biologically active compounds were synthesized and their bactericide, fungicide features were revealed.

In the field of analytical chemistry:

1. Coordination chemistry of active methylene compounds’ arilhydrazones was studied in details and the newly obtained compounds were applied as catalyser in the reactions of oxidization and formation of a new C-C communication.

2. A new class of organic reagents - azocompounds were synthesized from β-Diketones. The reaction capability of tautomer forms of reagents was studied by the method of quant chemical calculation, molecular and crystal structures of complexes were studied by X-Ray structure analysis method. Interdependencies of complex compounds structures and features were identified.

In the field of oil chemistry:

1. Reactions of alkenyl phenols, including haemolytic thiating, phosphorylation, aminomethylation and condensation with symmetric di-haloalkanes were systematically analyzed. Synthesized compounds displayed features of fuel, polyfunctional additives to oils, corrosion inhibitors and sulphate reducing bactericide in the fields of oil production and processing and positive results have been obtained.

2. Various biologically active heterocyclic compounds were synthesized from phenol containing chalcone derivatives and dynamic effects that may occur in their solution systems were analyzed by means of NMR spectroscopy.

In the field of polymer chemistry:

1. Conformity of chemical modification of industrial polymers and polymer wastes with synthesis of polyfunctional polymers was studied by methods of solid phase NMR-, IR- spectroscopy, scanning electron microscope and other modern methods of physical-chemical research. The ability of successful application of synthesized polymers as a sorbent, nanocomposite stabilizer was recommended. 

In the fields of synthesis and application of nanomaterials:

1. Scientific grounds of the technology of obtaining nanostructures with active features (superparamagnetic, giant magnet resistance, photoluminescence, photovoltaic, photo-resistant, catalytic, etc.) were studied for the first time, these structures were stabilized in various environments while retaining these features, their physical-chemical features were analyzed and the opportunities of applying them in the transformer (sensors) technology, medicine, settlement of ecologic problems and oil production.
