The history of the Russian Scientific Centre "Applied Chemistry" is inseparably linked with the creation and development of the national chemical industry.

It was founded according to a Soviet Government decree in January 1919, as the Russian Institute of Applied Chemistry. Prominent scientists, academicians N. S. Kurnakov and V. N. Ipatiev, were its founders.

Rich traditions of the Russian chemical school and the scientific potential of specialists allowed, before long, the development of production technologies and the provision of domestic phosphorus, bertholet salt, potassium permanganate, electrochemical battery manganese and other necessary chemical raw materials to the country. Also, this facilitated the creation of industrial production processes of cian compounds, flotoreagents, and polychloroprene rubber and a solution to problems of the pure aluminium industry.

Development of power engineering, aeronautics, space engineering, and mechanical engineering required new chemical products, which determined the structure of the institute's work.

During its development, the Russian Institute of Applied Chemistry became a large research and production association, involved in heavy organic synthesis, fluorine-containing compounds, amines, hydrogen oxide, catalysts etc. The production of a wide range of preparations, tagged with radioactive and stabile isotopes (more than 2000), began on the basis of a pilot plant.


The work of the centre's scientists and specialists, connected with the development of space vehicles and transportation systems ("Vostok", "Proton", "Zenit", "Energia") have achieved universal acclaim.

A number of projects, initiated at the institute, became independent and large trends, which were passed on to specialised research institutes, such as the State Institute of High Pressure, the All-Union Research Institute of Synthetic Rubber, the All-Union Institute of Aluminium and Magnesium, the Institute of Chlorine, and the Institute of Haulage. At present the Russian Scientific Centre "Applied Chemistry" unites the State Institute of Applied Chemistry, a project institute, a operation and production complex, and a pilot plant. It has a branch in Perm.

The Centre staff comprises highly skilled specialists, including 6 Honoured Scientists of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 3 correspondent members of the Russian Academy of Techniques, about 500 doctors and candidates of science.

The Russian Scientific Centre "Applied Chemistry" harmoniously combines applied and fundamental research in the following fields:
  • chemistry and technology of fluorine-containing compounds;
  • basic organic synthesis;
  • membranes, sorbents, catalysts;
  • special purity substances;
  • lubricants-coolants, technological lubricants, coatings;
  • corrosion preventive compounds;
  • composite, polymeric, and isotope-containing compounds;
  • substance and intermediate products for medicines;
  • ecological and production safety of chemical processes;
  • chemistry of defence and rocket-space complex, conversion;
  • flexible reproducible items for lightweight chemicals;
  • planning of chemical processes and creation of pilot plants.

The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
