Research Fields:

Previous and Current Research

We are study the radiation modification of polymeric nanocomposites filled with carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphenes with π-conjugated modifiers to improve the structural, electrically conductive, mechanical, optical properties.

It is shown that by radiation of polymer nanocomposites it is possible to influence the polyene structure of the polymer matrix and the properties of composites due to their filling and structural modification of the matrix.

The creation of prototypes of modern prodrugs with nanoparticles using the main protein of  blood plasma - BSA.

It is shown that complexes of squarain dyes with π-conjugated nanoparticles (nanotubes, graphenes, fullerenes) lead to confirmatory rearrangement of nanoparticles and significant charge redistribution, which contribute to the establishment of donor-acceptor and π-stack interactions.
