The Laboratory of Kinetics and Catalysis at the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University was founded in 1929 to expand education at undergraduate and graduate levels in the general areas of physical chemistry and specifically of catalysis as well as to develop research in surface science and kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions.

Now, its activity lies mainly in the field of zeolites, oxides, metallocomplex and enzymatic catalysis. It aims at performing high-level fundamental research capable of industrial integration and development.

Experience and skills

The laboratory of Kinetics and Catalysis is one of the leading research groups in Russian Federation specialized in the field of catalysis over molecular sieves. The laboratory staff have great experience in all kinds of research connected to molecular sieve materials – from synthesis to catalytic evaluation.

In the field of molecular sieves synthesis the research staff of the laboratory have worked through and mastered reproducible techniques for the preparation of various structure types of zeolites, microporous crystal silicoaluminophosphates and mesoporous materials. Several novel approaches have been proposed in the last years for the synthesis of a new classes of molecular sieves: micro-mesoporous materials,; metal containing zeolites; nanocrystalline zeolites, binderless zeolite materials and etc.

New highly-efficient catalysts for various processes have been developed in the laboratory in the last years, including catalysts for such processes as alkylation of benzene with propylene, alkylation of aniline with methanol, hydroalkylation of benzene with acetone, disproportionation of toluene, synthesis isoprene from formaldehyde and isobutylene, synthesis of butadiene from ethanol, conversion of 2,3-butanediol, synthesis of isobutylene from ethanol, synthesis of butanol from ethanol, synthesis of isobutylene from acetone and ethanol, synthesis of lower olefins from methanol, dehydrogenation of alkanes, epoxidation of propylene, oligomerization butane-butylene fraction, hydrocracking of vacuum gas oil.
