Professor Oleksandr Kostiuk

Institute of Organic Chemistry, NAS, Kiev, Ukraine

Scientific interests
Chemistry of phosphorus compounds, including P-heterocyclic compounds, synthesis of catalysts using phosphorus-containing ligands, carbene chemistry, biologically active compounds.

Prof.dr. Oleksandr Kostiuk was born in Ukraine in 1962. He graduated from Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv, Chemistry Department in 1984. After obtaining a doctoral degree in Organic chemistry in 1991 under the supervision of prof.dr. E.S. Kozlov, he stayed in Kyiv and carried out his research in organophosphorus chemistry. Oleksandr received his Doctor of Science degree in 2009 for his work on the chemistry of functionalized enamines. Since 2010 he is heading the Department of Organophosphorus Chemistry at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Prof.dr. Oleksandr Kostiuk is internationally known for his work on the development of new diaminocarbene ligands featuring N-phosphanyl substituents. He proposed an original approach to the synthesis of phosphinines via 6π-electrocyclisation. Some of his works are devoted to trimethylsilyl derivatives of formamidines and their unique properties as well as their application both in organic and elementoorganic chemistry.
