Project summary

Proposed Project is intended as more detailed study of functional organic materials, is based on the results obtained and evaluated in a course of investigations included in the ISTC Project 015-94. The previous studies have allowed elucidating the more promising results both in fundamental and applied research.

Accordingly, the proposed project is focused on three main provinces of materials science of organic solid bodies and application of the derived materials in civilian high technology industries.

A substantial stress is made on theoretic investigations and computer modeling of organic solid materials with practically important functional properties - electric, magnetic, and optical as a way to minimize time and costs of comprehensive synthetic search. The projection of previously achieved results in electronic structures of large lower dimensional organic molecules, in electronic correlations in conjugated systems, in nature of ferromagnetic ordering and of superdiamagnetic behavior in organic and carbon systems, in dependencies of linear and non-linear optical properties on an electronic structure etc. is going to be used as a foundation for these studies.

Related fundamental experimental research is going to be mainly devoted to preparation of new fullerene and nanotube materials with specific functional properties as pointed projection of the massive world research in the field. The former theoretical studies are going to be used as a leading thread in these extremely complicated investigations. However, the initial results obtained as an extension of the ISTC Project 015-94 plan indicate feasibility of this approach.

The third field is in turn a projection of the first two into a province of applied experimental and technological studies. The laboratory samples of specific optic media, gas sensitive materials, materials actively and specifically interacting with electro-magnetic radiation, sorbents, and dielectric binders and film forming materials are seen as a main result of this research. The final samples are going to be tested on their practical usefulness and an according technical and technological documentation is planned to be supplemented.

At final score an overwhelming majority of these materials will be either directly useful or relevant for solution of ecological problems as one of the most immediate threatening problems in the whole world and especially in CIS countries and Russian Federation.
