Establishment history The Institute of Chemistry – historical predecessor of M.Nagiyev Institute of Catalysis and Inorganic Chemistry was founded in 1935 within Azerbaijan branch of AS of USSR.  In 1965 the name of the Institute of Chemistry was changed to Institute of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry of Azerbaijan AS and this very year the Institute of Theoretical Problems of Chemical Technology of Azerbaijan AS was organized on the base of “Theoretical problems department” functioning under the leadership of academician Murtuza Nagiyev in the Institute of Petrochemical Processes. In 2002 these two Institutes were merged and the Institute of Chemical Problems named after academician M.Nagiyev was founded on their basis under decision of Cabinet of Ministry of Azerbaijan Republic. Name of the institute was changed to M.Nagiyev Institute of Catalysis and Inorganic Chemistry according to the decision of Cabinet of Ministry of Azerbaijan Republic dated on 15 April 2014.

Main scientific achievements of 2015 – 2017

-Semiconductor biomimetic electrode (Si) of catalase type the basic operating element is iron porphyrinic biomimetic catalyst was prepared for the first time. High activity and sensitivity of an electrode allows detecting the concentration of H2O2 up to 10-6 mass %, and the resistance to the effect of H2O2 facilitates its recycling.

- A new method based on the determination of coordinated mass- and heat flows has been developed for modeling and optimum design of chemical and technological systems on the example of optimum design of a complex of processing of cracking and pyrolysis gas.

- It is established that introduction of molybdenum on a surface of steel SH-15 Cr-Ti – carbide film by the method of thermo diffusion its anticorrosive and anti-erosive stability considerably increases and potential pitting -formation is displaced to a positive side on 200 mV.

- To preserve the prolonged effect of biologically active antibiotic doxorubicin nanocomposites poly-N-vinylpyrrolidone and biologically active antibiotic of doxorubicine nanobiocomposites on the basis of poly-N – arabic gum comprising 14-18 nm nanoparticles of silver were synthesized.

- Optimum parameters and the modes of extraction of valuable components from wastes of Dashkasan mining and processing works are defined. Ecologically harmless ways of leaching valuable metals from ore wastes have been developed in Azerbaijan for the first time.

- The perfect monocrystals of some mixed-layer tellurides on heavy p-elements with the properties of topological insulators have been grown and by joint researches with the international collaborators the possible application of them as effective transistors in terahertz detectors has been shown. On the basis of nanoantennas assembled from nanoscales of monocrystal layers the pilot scanning plant by means of which high-quality images of internal contents of various opaque objects have been obtained, has been prepared.

- Hydrosulphuric corrosion which is the result of activity of microbiological bacteria has been found on subwater steel constructions of Mingachevir reservoir. Having anaerobic properties, these microorganisms, feeding with sulfate ions in water environment releases H2S which promotes pitting corrosion.

- A method for obtaining 4 substituted monomer and oligomer phenylenediamines as prospective electrode materials for organic batteries has been developed.

- 7-9 nm new class piezoelectric nanocomposites of silver have been prepared on the basis of copolymer of poly-N-vinylpyrrolidone and arabic gum for designing acoustic antennas with a wide frequency interval for identification of subwater objects.

- The optimum mode and parameters of the directed synthesis of rutile and anatase modifications of titanium dioxide of Ajinohur titanium magnetite concentrates with natural gas using bioactive agent of chitosan as a modifier have been defined and the technological scheme of the process has been developed.

- Cd3As2S3Se3 compound with higher photosensitivity in wide spectral region compared to CdS, used in solar batteries has been synthesized. Photosensitive, optical properties of Cd3As2S3Se3 were studied, and the prospects of its using as a photo resistor in solar batteries have been shown.

- Selective action of biomimetic catalyst – perfluorinated iron tetraphenylporphyrin (per-FTPhPFe(III) OH/Al2O3) was established in the relation to cyclohexane in oxidation with hydrogen peroxide using methylcyclohexane and it was shown that in the process 11,3% of cyclohexanone is produced at 2000С, and at 2300С - 23,2% of cyclohexene.

- Single-stage solid-phase synthesis of metal ferrites from their oxides and natural raw materials – Dashkasan magnetite was performed under the effect of microwave radiation and their high activity in carbon monoxide oxidation reaction was established.

- Composites on a basis of hydrogels of quaternized poly-4-vinylpyridine containing silver nanoparticles on which the antibiotic doxycycline was immobilized have been synthesized and it was established that doxicycline keeps the biological activity for a long time in a nanocomposite and its partial separation from the carrier is observed for 48 hours.

- The technique of electrochemical obtaining nanostructured solar elements CdS/CdTe on a basis of glass /(In2O3,SnO2)/CdS(CdTe) has been developed and hybrid device for solar elements and nanocondensers accumulating electric energy was designed.

The most important results of acad. M.Nagiyev Institute of Catalysts and Inorganic Chemistry of ANAS for 2018.

- There has been elaborated analytic 3 D model for dependence of non –balanced Gibbs energy on partial pressure of components at the process of reconstruction iron- and vanadium containing ore concentrates in the stream of natural gas, which allowed determining the parameters of partial pressures to reduce the initial temperature of reconstruction to1000 C.

- For the first time with the use of ionic liquid (morpholine formate) as an electrolyte by EMF (electro moving force) method with a high exactness the partial and integral thermodynamic functions of triple compounds formed in systems M-X-I (M –Tl,Sb, Bi; X-S, Se, Te) have been determined. This allows considerably widening the opportunity of using EMF method in the research of inorganic systems.

- Compounds of thiosemicarbazones and hydrazones of carboxylic acids with metals of the first transitive period have been synthesized, their structure has been studied and it was established, that these compounds with inhibiting ability towards some ferments, are potential medicines against Alzheimer's disease and glaucoma.

- Kinetic regularities were studied and mathematical model of selective hydration reaction of phenyl acetylene –by-product, formed in the production of polystyrene on non-metal catalyst-mesoporous polymer carbonitride was constructed.

- Encapsulation of medicine L-tyroxine on N-methyl N-benzyl derivative, obtained during the interaction of chitosan with formic aldehyde and benzaldehyde, which has much higher solubility was performed. This biocomplex was tested in vivo on mice, where for a month there was not noticed any reverse reaction.

- On the mass-transfer and rheological properties of oil dispersive media there have been suggested diffusive and gravitational mechanisms, the models of asphalt, resin and solid phase precipitations, which contain crude oil, and formation models of dense layer of particles on the surface of oil equipment. The offered models allow predicting the condition of oil equipment within a time and choosing optimum conditions to prolong the time of their exploitation.
