Yevhen V. Lebedev,
NAS academician

Set up in 1958 on the basis of the laboratory of high-molecular compounds of the Institute of Organic Chemistry under AS UkrSSR (before 1963 – the Institute of Polymers and Monomers).

The Institute carries out research into advanced areas of macromolecular chemistry:

- chemistry, physics and technology of functional polymers and polymer composites;

- theoretical fundamentals of polymer and polymer composite modification;

- scientific tools of forming organic-inorganic polymers and composites based on natural compounds;

- theoretical fundamentals of forming polymers intended for medicine.

Among practical developments of the Institute especially noticeable are novel adhesive compositions of various applications (constructional, cryogenic, electroconducting, optical, permanent-stickiness, medical etc.), safe paintwork, anticorrosive and special film materials, functional polymeric composites of various technical and technological applications: waterproof, antifriction, optical-and-sound-transparent, biocompatible, electroconducting nanocomposites, sensor materials, heat- and radiation-resistant, self-extinguishing and other materials.

The Institute continues application-oriented studies in chemistry and physico-chemistry of polymers and polymer composites: technology of functional polymers and composites; theoretical principles of modifying synthetic polymers and copolymers based on natural polymers; fundamentals of forming functional organic-inorganic polymers and composites based on natural compounds, of forming polymers to be used in medicine.

Developments offered for commercialization:

- all-purpose glue compositions of the ‘Styk’ family;

- the ‘Metakont’ conductive glue;

- adhesive compounds for spacecraft solar cells;

- paintwork materials for antifriction, chemical-resistant, waterproof, antistatic coatings;

- antifriction heat-resistant coatings with strong adhesion;

- elastic composite materials based on liquid caoutchouc;

- anticorrosive and antifriction coatings for protecting metal surfaces;

- polymer compositions for building and restoration (sealing of underground structures and pools, strengthening of structures and foundations, ground consolidation);

- multi-purpose water-based ionomer polyurethane dispersion;

- multi-layered film materials for personal protective equipment against active substances;

- wood-polymer composites to substitute industrial wood and thermoplastics;

- pollution-free presswork based on novel organic-inorganic binders;

- polymer materials for medicine;

- clot-resistant polyurethanes for coronary stents etc.
