Current research activity:

Mechanisms of radiation- and chemical-induced free radical reactions of organic substances (reactions of fragmentation, destruction and oxidation involving carbon-, nitrogen- and oxygen-centered radicals, influence of the kinetic isotope effect on these reactions). Search for low molecular weight regulators (mainly among nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds) of free radical transformations of organic substances in the presence and absence of oxygen.
