History of the Department

The Department of Chemistry was established in 1930 during the organization of Kyiv Institute of Leather and Footwear Industry. The head of the department (1930-1935 and 1941-1944 years) was wellknown for his work in chemistry and technology of leather Professor Kotov M.P. Among the first teachers of the department were: 1930. – Assoc. Prof. Fokina N.S., Assoc. Prof. Fokin AS, from 1933 to 1934 – Assoc. Pospehov D.A., from 1937 – Boulange I.N., since 1938. – Lednova A.M. Since 1930 the following courses were taught: general, inorganic, organic, physical and colloid chemistry, the chemistry and technology of leather. The main cohort of students in this period was completed by children of workers in tanneries.

In the period from 1935 to 1937 department was headed by Associate Professor Fokina N.S., and from 1937 to 1941 – Associate Professor Fokin A.S. In 1937 the institute received a room on the street Klovska 16 (currently – 2, Nemirovich-Danchenko str.). Department of Chemistry had 2 laboratories: general and analytical chemistry, organic, physical and colloid chemistry.

After the war in 1944 institute resumes in Kiev. The Institute was destroyed. The department led student groups not only in the reconstruction of the Institute, but the city as well (Khreshchatyk str.). In October 1st 1944 in institute, classes began. In 1944 to head the Department of General and Analytical Chemistry was invited Professor Cullberg L.M. The main scientific direction of the department was the development of new methods of analysis. A number of works on halfmicromethods and rapid analysis methods were perfomed, as well as drip analysis. The department was one of the first in Ukraine who transferred the methods of analitic chemistry in halfmicromethod.

In 1960, working conditions have improved, the department was moved to new buildings on the 37, Reitarska str. It was two large and one small laboratory rooms, and three general rooms. Since September 1961 till September 1971 the department was lead by Doctor of Chemistry, Professor Fedoseyev P.N.

The main directions of research in this period include development of methods of qualitative and quantitative analysis using chemicals on paper; development of quantitative-element analysis.

In the period from September 1971 to March 1975 the department was headed by honored worker of science and engineering professor O.I. Yurzhenko The teaching staff of the department was working on promising direction associated with the profile of the institute - "Obtaining and study the properties of polyurethane latex" (group of Assoc. Prof. Golubev A.V.). As a result - polyurethane latex for special purposes were obtained, defended 3 theses, published more than 30 scientific papers, obtained 10 patents.

From March 1975 to 1988 the Department of General and Analytical Chemistry headed by Professor K.I. Matkovskyi Dr.

The main directions of research in this period are: the improvement of research in new methods of synthesis and chemical analysis of monomers and polymers; research on problems of higher education. For the first time, focus group of Assoc. Prof. Golubev A. worked to create polyurethane aqueous dispersions that can be used as binders for the skin, and in the textile industry for impregnating woven and nonwoven materials to enable them mechanical and chemical resistance.

The department conducted training in the following disciplines: General and inorganic chemistry; Inorganic chemicals; Chemistry; Analytical chemistry, Quantitative analysis; Analytical chemistry, Physical and chemical analysis methods; Physical chemistry; Colloid chemistry.

In the period from 1987 to 1988 the department was headed by Doctor of Chemistry, Professor V. Polyakov The department worked to obtain and study the properties of complex compounds for use as microbicides and drugs with fungicidal their subsequent use to modify the cellulose matrix and tissue (medical technology) (assoc.prof. Kryukov V.V.).

From 1988 to 1998 headed the Department of Chemistry, professor Golubev A. PhD. Department of Chemistry provides training in 14 disciplines of the 13 specialties. 88% of teachers of the department have academic degrees and titles.

Newest history

Since 1998, the Department of Chemistry headed by Prof. Dr. Viacheslav Z. Barsukov, Fellow of the International Academy of Computer Science and Systems, Ukrainian Ecological Academy; Member of the International Association of Hydrogen Energetics, ISE and ECS.  

In August 2000 the specialty "Technical electrochemistry" was licensed, in 2011 the specialization "Electrochemical Power Engineering and Environmental Safety." Currently the Department with one hand, educates bachelors and M. Sc. of the mentioned specialty with specialization in the field of electrochemical energy, on the other ─ provides fundamental knowledge of chemical disciplines of chemistry department students and training students of chemistry. In this regard, the Department was entitled "Department of Electrochemical Power Engineering and Chemistry."

International Cooperation

Directions for cooperation: Fundamental and applied R&D in the fields of development and investigation of novel materials for perspective Li-ion batteries (up to 200 Wh/kg); Met-Air (Li-Air, Zn-Air, Al-Air, etc.) rechargeable cells (500-800 Wh/kg); Hybrid supercapacitors (which could combine a high power ca 3-5 kW/kg simultaneously with quite acceptable energy ca 30-40 Wh/kg depending on the mode of charge-discharge from dozen seconds to dozen minutes).

During last years research was done in framework on 5 grants of EC (programs FP6, FP7, Horizon 2020 - projects “ILLIBAT”, “SOMABAT” ,”AMELIE”, “LABOHR”, “Energy Caps”), as well as 5 grants of USA (programs of Department of Energy, CRDF, STCU, etc. - please, see the Table).

According to the annual KNUTD competitions of the best scientific work results the department  takes the 1st  place among the graduate departments of the University in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.

 

The department trains Bachelors and Master Sc. with the specialization in the sphere of electrochemical power engineering.

At the department research work is carried out with involvement of students and in close collaboration with scientific institutions not only from Ukraine but from the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Greece, Austria, Belgium, etc. We constantly work on several international grants.

Currently, when computer technology, audio, video and photographic apparatus, mobile communication facilities and consumer electronics are currently used and thrive, the autonomous electrochemical power engineering (design, manufacturing and operation of the fuel cells and electrochemical generators, primary batteries, accumulators, super capacitors, photo – electrochemical converters of the solar energy into electrical energy) is acquiring exclusive value in the modern technology and everyday life of people.

Against the background of the world energetic crises, and in connection with steady exhaustion of traditional kinds of fuel, the use of hydrogen becomes attractive for wide production of electric energy and in autonomous current sources which differ not only by high effectiveness but also absolute ecological safety.

Besides, the society needs development of modern methods and means for ecological monitoring of the environment and neutralization of toxic substances, and the most effective among them are electrochemical technologies and equipment.

Thus, at our department the training of specialists is carried out according to the priority directions of the world development of the economy.

KNUTD is a member of Ukrainian Association of producers of electrochemical power sources “Batteries of Ukraine”.
The organisation of training of specialists of the speciality “Technical electrochemistry” and with the specialization “Electrochemical power engineering and eco-safety” encourages active attraction of students to carrying out research work, organic integration of scientific investigations and educational process, expansion of international contacts in the direction of student exchanges, practices.

Prospects for Students

The leading research institutions of Ukraine and the world, instrument making and machine building companies and enterprises, oil-and-gas-transport enterprises and numerous laboratories of the ecological control are interested in our graduates. Those who desire can continue their study as postgraduate students, obtain the second higher education at the KNUTD.
