Basic scientific achievements The main scientific achievements are obtaining of nano-structural catalysts, sorbents, hydrogels and metal0nanocompositions on the base of natural and synthetic polymers containing functional groups, investigation of physical-chemical, catalytic and sorption properties with their participation, as well as immobilization and transportation of biologically active complexes and medicines. As a result of investigation there have been worked out the new principles of construction the nano-claster catalytic systems which are immobilized in polymer gels swollen in organic solvents and having a high activity, selectivity and stability. The high effectiveness of obtained nano-claster catalysts in the reactions of dimerization, oligomerization and co-dimerization of the lower olefins. At the same time there were synthesized nanocalaysts with the effect of memory of a new generation on the basis of polymers with phosphor carboxyl, pyridine, amine and imine functional groups showing high catalytic properties. These catalysts demonstrated high activity and selectivity in reactions of oxidation and hydration for the number of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols and cycloparaffins. Biocatalytic properties of complexes, created from nanocomposities obtained in the field of natural and synthetic polymers with functional groups have been studied and prolonged action of the obtained triple complexes in medicine and biotechnology has been established.
