Information for potential partners:

The Analytical Chemistry Department has considerable experimental material of patterns and features studying of the adsorption interaction of multiply charged metal ions, organic matter (organic dyes, surfactants, etc.) with surface of solid different nature supports. The experimental and theoretical results can be used in the development and improvement of express sensitive test methods for determination of inorganic and organic pollutants in natural and industrial waters. The other scientific interest of investigation is theoretical and experimental developments on main peculiarities at direct electro thermal atomic absorption determination some of heave metals in solids, none-ferrous metal and alloys, high-purity materials, foods and environmental including with utilization of matrix modifiers and other high-temperature chemical-active reagents, as well as non-commercial type of atomizers. In recent years the department has been actively studied the possibility of using chromaticity functions for research and quantitative description of acid-base equilibrium in organic dyes solutions.


The Department of Analytical Chemistry as an independent educational, methodical and scientific was found in 1933 in Chemistry Odessa Novorossiysk University. The first Head of Chemical Faculty and at the same time Department of Analytical Chemistry was Prof. V.D. Bogatsky. Under his management the collective of researchers was actively engaged into studying of chemical analysis methods, especially organic analysis as well as application of organic reagents into inorganic analysis. Actually in the first years of faculty existence Prof. V.D. Bogatsky had been attempted to lay the foundation of traditional research activities “Organic reagents in analytical chemistry” which has been continued up today. From 1941 to 1956 Dr. R.L. Dremluk was the Head of Department of Analytical Chemistry.

At this time scientific researches have been continued the course of organic reagents utilization at the analysis of anionic and cationic substances composition. During the 1956-1968 under leadership of Prof. A.A. Morozov the new scientific direction was developed: “Chromatography studying of ion-exchange processes on liquid and solid ionites”. From 1968 to 1971 (Head – Prof. A.M.Andrianov) the opportunity of organic reagents application for determination of rare elements was investigated. In 1971-1984 Department of Analytical Chemistry was headed Dr. N.L. Olenovich. At this time the research activities was successfully continued on application of organic reagents at determination of elements III-V of groups of Periodic system, ion-exchange concentration and separations some of heavy metals from alkalis and acids solutions as well as organic sol-vents. Simultaneously have started atomic spectroscopy investigations on emission and atomic absorption analysis of high-purity materials, non-ferrous metals and alloys, refractory metal oxides and environmental.

Since 1984 the Analytical Chemistry Department was headed by Dr. A.N. Chebotarev. The course of research studies from this time are devoted to efficient combination of concentration, separation and determination methods microquantity’s of components in various nature. The most significant scientific achievements are connected with studying of analytical chemistry and sorption’s properties of the synthesized multi-functional sorbents on the basis of ion-exchanges resins and amorphous silicageles with organic reagents in relation to poly-nuclear ions of metals and surface-active substances. Special attention was paid on sorption technique and following spectroscopic methods to determination of heavy metals in environmental, molybdenum, titan, gallium in some industrial materials, nature waters, surface-active substances in natural objects. The important place in scientific activity are investigations at the improvement and development of direct atomic absorption and emission spectral (molecular emission spectroscopy cavity analysis) methods of heavy metals determination in high-purity materials, non-ferrous metals, foods and environmental with high-temperature spectroscopic buffers utilization and so called “open types” electro thermal atomizers.

Since 2019, with the reorganization of the Faculty of Chemistry and the opening of specialty 226 “Pharmacy. Industrial Pharmacy ”department was renamed to the department of analytical and toxicological chemistry.
