Enikolopov Institute of Synthetic Polymeric Materials
Russian Academy of Sciences
The Institute of Synthetic Polymeric Materials (ISPM) was founded in 1981 by Academician N.S. Enikolopov as part of a Branch of Basic and Technical Chemistry at the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. Today it is one of the leading research centers in chemistry and physics of polymers.

It was found that the electrical characteristics of films (DC and AC conductivity, capacitance at different frequencies, current attenuation time) depend on the composition of the air. A unique set of electrical parameters allows you to detect individual substances in the atmosphere.
Poly(p-xylylene) – titanium thin film nanocomposites were synthesized by vacuum deposition polymerization and proposed to serve as a gas sensor. They can reversibly and selectively detect several parts per thousand water, ethanol and even n-propyl benzene vapors with short response time. The presence of polar molecules affects conductance and capacitance, while nonpolar vapors such as benzene and toluene have no effect on electrical properties.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation under grant agreement № 075-15-2019-1694 (RFMEFI60419×0227) from 22.11.2019. There was an article published in highly-cited scientific journal Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical.
The obtained results can be extended to other families of conjugated oligomers and highlight the efficiency of fluorination for rational design of organic semiconductors for optoelectronic devices.
During the second part of the seminar there will be presented results of the study of biodegradable star-shaped polylactides synthesized in the Laboratory of functional polymer structures.
The school held a competition for the best oral and poster presentations among young scientists, the winners of which were awarded by diplomas, commemorative albums and new books on organic electronics from one of the sponsors of the event - the global publishing house Wiley. The main sponsor of the school for young scientists was the Russian Science Foundation in the framework of grant No. 19-73-30028, supported by the "Presidential program for support of leading laboratories and infrastructure projects".

During lecture main research activities of CEIB, such as material synthesis, processing and characterisation, and in vitro testing, will be described.
This lecture will be primary focused on the optimization of biodegradable aliphatic polyesters which have been functionalized in order to improve their surface and mechanical properties with as final purpose to improve their suitability for bone regeneration.
The alliance includes some of the world’s largest chemical companies, including BASF, Dow Chemical, and LyondellBasell Industries, as well as consumer product giants like Procter & Gamble and Henkel. But critics say the industry should have acted on plastic waste sooner and that this effort by itself won’t solve the problem.
The initiative launched with a sleek video presentation viewed on the web by more than 500,000 people its first day. Full text see here.
Yuriy Luponosov, leading researcher of the Laboratory of Functional Materials for Organic Electronics and Photonics of ISPM RAS. was awarded in the nomination of Non-traditional Energy. His project is devoted to transparent and flexible solar cells based on new organic materials with enhanced stability.
In the framework of the meeting a Collaborative Forum took place, where representatives of KIMM presented main directions of the institution scientific activity, in particular in the field of mashinery for roll-to-roll and printed electronics.
Researchers of the Laboratory of Functional Materials for Organic Electronics and Photonics of ISPM RAS presented their recent scientific reasults in the field of organic electronics. As a result of the meeting it was desided to prepare a Collaborative Research Agreement and to look for possible funding sources for collaborative research in the field of organic and printed electronics.
