Main scientific achievements 

For catalytic cracking process technology was fluidized bed and on this basis in Baku Oil Refinery were installed in large-scale industry set the type I-B and I-A. First in the world to obtain   mono-olefins developed рrocess of catalytic dehydrogenation of a C3 to C5 paraffinic hydrocarbons  in the fluidized bed of fine  K-5 catalyst. The implementation of this process in the industry has led to decrease in the volume of ethanol used in the production of divinyl. This process was widely used in the factories of the former cities of Soviet Union as Sumgayit, Kuibyshev, Omsk and Romania. Was developed by the process of oxidative dehydrogenation of paraffinic C9-C14 hydrocarbons into olefinic hydrocarbons, which in turn are used as raw materials in the production of detergents. Carried out research in the field of creating dehydrogenation process of  C4-C5 hydrocarbons into the corresponding diene hydrocarbons in the presence of industrial catalysts. On the basis of acrylic and epoxy compounds obtained the new water-soluble allows obtaining para-tert-butifenol and p-tert.-octylphenol by alkylation of phenol with isobutylene at atmospheric pressure in liquid polymers. Developed the process which phase in the presence of a zeolite catalyst. The obtained product can be widely used in petrochemistry and organic synthesis. The product is widely used in the manufacture of surfactants and as additives in lubricating oils. Was developed the technological process of  phenol alkylation with isobutylene oligomers. The process was tested in a pilot plant with a fixed bed catalyst. The laws of the oxidative conversion of C 2 -C 3  paraffins in the presence of oxy and oxy chloro manganese catalysts. Determine the influence of  Na on selectivity of the catalyst, as well as the optimal composition provides a high yield of olefins. Was studied the basic laws of transformation reactions of CH4, C2H6, C3H8 with CO2. the optimal conditions, the kinetic laws, mechanism of the catalysis  process and the possibility of using CO2. Were created the effective processes and catalysts for the production of ethylene, propylene, isoprene, butadiene, linear and cyclic oligomers. Was developed environmentally friendly technology for producing new bifunctional catalyst  stabilizers and also low and high molecular weight poly-butadiene based on them. Recent years in the laboratory conducting research in the direction of obtaining oxide catalysts carried out used in the dehydrogenation of propane and butane. Preparation of oxide catalysts carried out is carried out under conditions of thermo vacuum. Physico-chemical study of the catalyst synthesized by this method shows that in the  thermo vacuum condition generates K2Cr2O7. K2Cr2O7 plays an important role in the taking place of dehydrogenation reaction and provides a high yield of the desired product. Was developed the mathematical model of propane dehydrogenation in the presence of oxygen with the inclusion of thermal and material flows. In the laboratory developed modified zeolite catalysts containing metals Ni, Cr, Bi and the Υ-Al2O3 as a binder. These catalysts allow to carry out dehydrogenation of paraffinic hydrocarbons to olefinic hydrocarbons and promotes the alkylation of paraffinic hydrocarbons with olefins. Liquid yield 60-70 -% propane at the source. Was developed the technological scheme of conversion process of catalytic cracking gasses, containing PPD and BBF, into the liquid reaction products in the presence of industrial zeolite-containing catalyst.  Investigations were carried out in a reactor with a fixed bed catalyst. The yield of liquid products on 150-160% of olefins,PPF on 77.5% and 72.2% on BBF, the amount of converted olefins C2-C4 is 235.4%, the octane number  by the motor method 80-82pp, RON 90-92pp, the initial boiling point is 60 0 С, final boiling point 200 0 С.

Was performed the investigations in the field of catalytic thermal decomposition of water. Determined that in the presence of a reducing agent (CO) decomposition of water takes place in continuous conditions. In the presence of Fe-containing catalyst at 200-350C water conversion is ~ 90%. Found that at 300 C obtained CH4, while above 300 C is obtained C2H6. Advantage of this method is that the process is carried out without feed of hydrogen into the system from outside. Hydrogen, which required in the system is obtained during the decomposition of water.) . In order to expand research work, performed by a laboratory in this direction have been presented into grant competition, which subsequently were winners. The project entitled "Synthesis of nanostructured Fe2O3-containing catalysts and their application at production of hydrogen from water" was carried out with the financial support of Science Development Fund under the President of Azerbaijan Republic (2011-2013)  and "Joint thermocatalytic conversion of CO2 and H2O into hydrocarbons" supported by Science Foundation of National Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) (2013 2014).
