The main directions of scientific activities of the ITC SB RAS are:
- theory of chemical bond, reactivity of chemical compounds, mechanisms of chemical reactions, proteomics and metabolomics;
- magnetic phenomena in chemistry, biology and medicine; design of molecular magnets and magnetically active compounds;
- magnetic resonance spectroscopy, hyperpolarization, MRI for physicochemical and biomedical applications and medical diagnostics, including combination of MRI with other diagnostic methods.
The representative achievements of scientists from ITC include:
- development and applications of various experimental magnetic resonance techniques based on chemically-induced spin polarization and parahydrogen-induced polarization;
- theory of spin polarization, in particular of the SABRE method;
- design and studies of thermo/photo/pressure-switchable molecular magnets based on copper(II) complexes with stable nitroxide radicals;
- MRI developments using hyperpolarized gases;
- MRI methodology for prenatal diagnostics and various liquor dynamics studies;
- various contributions in field of photochemistry and metabolomics.
