Current research activity:

The field of research activity is the development of scientific fundamentals for cellulose and other polymers solutions production and their processing into fibers, films, membranes, composites; synthesis of new cellulose derivatives and the study of their properties; the development of new principles for the production of spontaneously disintegrated solid and soft medicinal forms of the hydrophobic substances on the basis of water soluble polymers; new methods of the polluted waters treatment. Principal results of the applied research activities are:

  • new technologies for the production of regenerated cellulose and structurally mixed cellulose/polymer fibers, membranes, film-fabric filtering materials, filter-elements and filtering equipment
  • new technologies for surface, underground and waste waters treatment  (individual kit for purification of polluted water in the emergency situation; carbon coagulant for purification of heavily polluted waters; mobile autonomous water treatment plant for water production in the emergency situations)
  • homogeneous synthesis for the new water soluble cellulose derivative demonstrating liquid crystalline behavior in the solutions and chitin derivatives synthesis as well.
  • new type of the combined drugs on the basis of medicinal substances and activated carbon.

Savitskaya T.A. is the initiator of the introduction of the discipline "Introduction to Green Chemistry" (2008) at BSU. The discipline has its own website and contains information about the developments of Belarusian scientists in the field of "green" technologies; in 2021, video methodological materials (9 videos) dedicated to the topic "Green Metrics" were created.

Savitskaya T.A. is one of the initiators and developers of the concept of the educational direction "Green Chemistry", which was included by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus among the main educational directions of the National Children's Technopark (created in accordance with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Belarus No. 145 dated April 12, 2019 “On the establishment of an educational institution “National Children's Technopark”) Currently, she is a teacher-curator of this direction.

Savitskaya T.A. was a supervisor of a graduate student (PhD degree), 5 master's theses and more than 30 theses.
