The Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova

     The Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova was founded in 1959 on the basis of the sectors for Organic and Inorganic Chemistry, and the laboratory of the Analytical Chemistry of the Moldavian Branch of the Academy of Sciences of USSR.
      The basis of scientific directions of the Institute was put by the known scientists, members of the Academy of Sciences, founders of scientific schools in Moldova: A.V. Ablov (1905-1978) –the coordination compounds chemistry school; Gh. V. Lazurievski (1906-1987) – the organic and bioorganic chemistry school; Iu.. S. Lealicov (1909-1976) –the polarographic school, leader of the research in the field of physico-chemical methods of analysis.
     New scientific schools were created as well: quantum chemistry - headed by Academician I. Bersuker; organic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, chemistry of natural and physiologically active compounds - headed by Academician P. Vlad; chemistry of coordination compounds, macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry - headed by Academician N. Gărbălău; ecological chemistry – headed by Academician Gh. Duca; bioinorganic chemistry - headed by Corresponding Member C. Turtă. The basis of scientific school in the chemistry of carbonic adsorbents was created by Doctor Habilitate of Chemistry, Professor T. Lupaşcu.
Scientific Potential:
103 scientific researchers, including - 3 Full Members, 2 Corresponding Members, 16 Doctors Habilitate and 42 Doctors of Chemistry.
