RUDN researchers are working together on heterocycle compounds to use them in medicine.
In December, «Molecular design and synthesis of innovation compounds for medicine» scientific center was opened. The Center is headed by professor Andrey Malkov (Loughborough University, Great Britain) and has already attracted chemists from Italy, India, China and Indonesia
RUDN researchers are looking for more efficient ways of producing more qualitative and cheaper products and synthesizing new substances including new biologically active compounds for medicine.
Viktor Khrustalev, Director of RUDN United Chemical Institute: «Currently we are on a fundamental stage. In our laboratory we can create prototypes for further testing and industrial production of substances for medicine and other fields».
RUDN researchers are working together with Italian colleagues from Bari University have already started a project on improving medicines for Alzheimer experimenting with nitrogen-containing heterocycle compounds and showing the possibility of more qualitative and cheaper product. In the laboratory some chemical reactions last 2-4 minutes instead of regular 3-4 days and are cleaner and safer.
Chemists will start with a precise mathematical model of the process using digital technologies, thus shortening the experimental period and increasing efficiency.
The Center is opened in the frame of 5-100 Project.
On February 19, in 2017, Nikolai Sergeyevich Prostakov would have turned 100 years old.
