Project summary

The Aim of the project:

Carrying out scientific-research and experienced-constructive works (SRECW) for elaboration of a new effective technology of obtaining the salicylic acid and for organization its experienced production.

The essence of the problem:

The offered new technology of obtaining the salicylic acid is based on elaborated by the authors of the project – a new method of obtaining the salicylic acid by the reaction of phenol’s carboxylation with sodium salt of ethylcarbonic acid. The technology is highly-economic. According to the new technology the cost of producing the salicylic acid is 2-3 times lower than its cost of producing by existing industrial method.

Main problems which must be solved for achievement of the project aim:

  1. Defining optimum parameters of the new technology of obtaining the salicylic acid;
  2. Working out laboratory regulation of the obtaining salicylic acid;
  3. Carrying out the toxicological tests of salicylic acid, obtained by the new technology;
  4. Working out the Temporary pharmacopeic clause on the preparation;
  5. Projecting and experienced-constructive work for arrangement a small-scale production of the preparation.

The Importance of the project:

Realization of the given project will help to develop pharmaceutical industry of Republic of Kazakhstan. Now Kazakhstan because of weak development of pharmaceutical industry has to import about 95% of medicine. Participation in the project scientists and engineers formerly involved in weapons development will provide for them alternative job, connected with peaceful problems.

The Role of Foreign Collaborators:

Participation in joint research work for development the new technology of obtaining the salicylic acid offered in the project and assistance in selection and ordering the necessary equipment
