Institute of Chemistry


The project is expected to develop optimal processes/methods for synthesis of about 10 to 15 new ligands containing O, S, N, P donor atoms and about 40-50 new coordination compounds of 3d- and 4f- transition metals and s-type metals with properties of potential adsorbents for small molecules, physiologically active substances, molecular magnets, specific catalysts for heterogeneous catalysis, nanostructured or highly porous materials. The new coordination compounds will be characterized with adequate physical and physico-chemical methods of analyses (elemental analysis, X-ray , IR, NMR, RNG, ESR, UV-Vis, Magnetochemistry, Electronic microscopy, Thermogravimetry, Chromato-Mass-spectrometry, Ciclovoltammperometry, study of sorbtion processes, etc.). This investigation will give the opportunity to: substantially clarify the role of the sinthesized complexes in the technological and biological processes; to publish and disseminate the obtained scientific results in national and international journals; to present their at various scientific forums in the form of oral reports and posters; to recommend for certification and implementation on the level from idea to implementation; to perform the intermediary and final reports of obtained results. Expected research are directly related to the strategic direction of the activity of science and innovation in Moldova for 2020-2023 years.

Results, activities

New porous coordination polymers of some 3d, s and lanthanide elements (52 compounds) were obtained based on ligands containing carboxylic groups and/or donor nitrogen atoms, with permanent porosity, hydrolytically and thermally stable. They can be used as potential sorbents for gas storage and as catalysts in heterogeneous acylation processes. The investigation of the luminescent properties of coordination polymers of lanthanides demon-strated that the compounds containing La3+, Nd3+ and Gd3+ possess only the emission associated with the organic ligand, and the polymers containing Eu3+ and Tb3+ show pure metal-centered radiation, while the polymer networks containing Dy3+ and Sm3+ exhibits dual metal- and ligand-centered luminescence.

The synthesis of polynuclear complex combinations of some 3d and s metals (21 compounds) based on ligands containing donor atoms S, C, O, N and Schiff bases was carried out. They possess enhanced antibacterial proper-ties against bacteria and fungi, inhibitory properties of fungal proliferation in biological processes and can serve as potential catalysts of redox processes or as molecular magnets.

Heteronuclear complex combinations of manganese(II), nickel(II) and cobalt(II) based on sebacic acid and o-phenanthroline, characterized by X-ray diffraction, possess ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic properties.

Heteronuclear complex combinations of copper(II) based on salicylic acid characterized by X-ray diffraction possess enhanced antimicrobial properties to various pathogenic microorganisms

Nanoparticles based on small oxides synthesized from small trinuclear carboxylates characterized by electron microscopy, possess antimicrobial properties and have an increased biosynthetic influence on Trichoderma cultures.

Within the project, 14 scientific articles were published in prestigious journals with impact factors, 5 articles in national journals, category A, team members participated in 11 international and national scientific conferences (on-line) and published 9 abstracts, have obtained 11 patents and submitted 3 patent applications. At the invention salons, the patents were awarded with gold, silver, bronze medals and special prizes. A habilitation doctoral thesis and a doctoral thesis were support, 1 doctoral thesis is in progress.
