Current research activity, main achievements
According to the scientific results, for the first time, new radical-regulatory properties of aromatic alcohols, aldehydes and acids were discovered. Benzaldehyde and its derivatives were shown to oxidize α-hydroxyl containing carbon-centered radicals, while phenylpropanoids added these radicals to the carbonyl group or the –С=С– double bond conjugated with the aromatic ring. Aromatic aldehydes and acids were found to inhibit free-radical processes taking place on dehydration of ethylene glycol, demethoxylation of its monomethyl ether, dephosphorylation of glycero-1-phosphate, and O-glycoside bond rupture in methyl glycosides. Data in this area are necessary for better understanding molecular mechanisms responsible for pharmacological activity manifested by aromatic alcohols, aldehydes and acids in treatment of diseases caused by activation of free-radical processes in a living organism.
A patent have been received (BY 1700) for discovery of compound having antiviral activity towards Herpes simplex type I viruses. A certificate of practical utilization of the study results in the educational process has been obtained.
