Department of Physics and chemistry of polymers and colloids was founded in 1960 at the Chemistry Department under the leadership of Professor A. I. Yurzhenko, Honored Worker of Science of USSR, a renowned expert in the field of colloid chemistry and polymer chemistry. Scientists of the department established patterns of emulsion polymerization as one of the most important ways to prepare synthetic polymers. New types of effective multifunctional peroxides as polymerization initiators were commercialized (Professor S. S. Ivanchev, since 1997 Corresponding Member of Academy of Sciences, Associate Professor V. I. Galibey, Associate Professor Y. K. Epimahov).
Since 1970, under the guidance of Associate Professor V. A. Vilshanskiy, and since 1979 - Associate Professor Y. N. Anisimov, studies nonionic surfactants as emulsifiers in emulsion polymerization processes deployed at the Department. Research initiate polymerization processes using peroxides and organometallics were continued. In 1988, the Department of Physics and chemistry of polymers and colloids was reorganized into the Department of General Chemistry and Polymers, which in 1989 led by Associate Professor A. I. Prysiazhniuk - Specialist Macromolecular Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry (1990 - Doctor of Chemical Science, 1991 - Professor). His scientific activity was related to the development of new types of ingredients for processing high-molecular compounds based on 3d-metal complexes of a given composition.
Since 1992, the department in charge of leading specialist in the field of coordination chemistry, Professor I. I. Seifullina. Scientific activity carried out within the scientific school "Coordination Chemistry of p-, d-and f-metals with organic nitrogen- oxygen- sulfur- and phosphorus-containing molecules" and aims to the development of science and technology in the priority area "new substances and materials." Developed the concept of control of processes directed synthesis of a wide range of new complex compounds, which, unlike usual has unique properties. Received more than 200 new homogeneous- and heteronuclear complex and supramolecular compounds of germanium, tin, s-, d- and f-elements. The new functional materials were created on their basis, including biologically active substances necessary for the production of: chemical sensors’ working bodies, sensors, gas analyzers, glass in optoelectronics, as well as effector enzymes. Patented a number of pharmaceutical substances of new type with a wide range of physiological actions (Professor Seifullina I. I., Associate Professor L. S. Skorohod, Associate Professor Shmatkova N. V., Associate Professor Martsinko E. E., Associate Professor Hitrich N. V., Associate Professor Zubkov SV, Senior Researcher V. N. Tkachenko, Research Associate Dorohtey I. L.).
Research in the area of macromolecular chemistry is going on. The regularities of copolymerization of vinyl monomers and oligomer-oligomer systems, initiated by peroxides and transition metal coordination compounds. Using energy-saving technologies developed polymeric composites filled with conductive properties and high strength characteristics (Professor Anisimov Y. N., Ph.D. Savin S. N.) Created initiating systems based on high efficiency chelate - acetylacetonates and dithiocarbamates transition metals and hydroperoxides different nature for the implementation of homogeneous and heterogeneous polymerization of vinyl monomers in the moderately of low temperatures (Associate Professor P. A., Ivanchenko, Associate Professor Y. K. Epimahov, Associate Professor N. V. Khitrich).
