Scientific secretary

Establishment history In 1920 was organized Central Chemical Laboratory attached to the “Azneft” unity and on the bases of it in 1929 was organized Azerbaijan Petroleum Research Institute (AzPRI). This date is considered the establishing history of IPCP.

In 1959 by initiative of Y.H.Mammadaliyev was organized the Institute of Petrochemical Processes within the Academy of Sciences on the bases of  AzPRI, Azerbaijan Scientific - Research Institute of Oil Refining and several laboratories of Chemical Institute of Azerbaijan Academy of Sciences.  

The newly established institute has become leading scientific center in republic and country. And in 1962 the institute was named after Y.H.Mammadaliyev.

At different times the directors of the Institute were:

academician M.F.Nagıyev - (1959-1962),

academician V.S.Aliyev - (1962-1987),

academician M.I.Rustamov - (1987-2011),

From 2011 to the present time Institute is headed by correspondent member of ANAS, Doctor of Chemical Science, Professor V.M. Abbasov.
Basic activity directions  Investigation of the Azerbaijanian oils and development of the scientific basis of their efficient processing in order to obtain new fuels and oils, creation of new technologies for oil refinery and petrochemistry, catalysts of different purpose reagents (corrosion, salt deposition inhibitors, deemulgators, oil skimmer substances, etc.), conducting fundamental research in the field of catalysis, organic and physical chemistry, petrochemical synthesis, development of the perspective complex schemes on develop of Azerbaijan's oil refining and petrochemical complexes.
Main scientific achievements  Oils of Azerbaijan offshore oil fields have been investigated, scientific basis of efficient processing technologies have been developed that provides obtain their perspective jet and diesel fuels, motor gasolines and lubricants.
