Current research activity 
•  synthesis and investigation of the physicochemical properties of the metalsilico phosphate compounds to create materials for multifunctional use (means of fire protection and firefighting);
• creation of effective flame retardants for materials of different chemical nature;
• investigation of the mechanism of extinguishing fire-resistant action, nitrogen-phosphorus- containing compounds in natural and synthetic polymers of different classes;
• development of new technologies of extinguish of smoldering materials using fire extinguishing compositions;
• development of heat-protective and anticorrosive coatings.
Main achievements.
• identity of the processes providing the dominant contribution to the inhibition of synthetic and natural burning of combustible materials has beenestablished, the general principles of reducing the flammability of different materials have been formulated and experimentally proved;
reasons for the extinction of combustible materials of  synthetic and natural polymers and peat have been established;
• ways to improve known retardants and to synthesize new flame retardants have been proposed and experimentally proved;
• retardants and extinguishing agents for wood and peat have beensynthesized;
• nitrogen-, phosphorus- containing flame retardants for polyolefins and filled rigid polyurethane foam have been synthesized.
• heat-protectivecoatings for cable insulation and metal structures;
• composition for prevention and suppression of natural fires "Complexil".
