fine orgаnic chemistry ORGANICA: centenniаl trаditions of modern-dаy production Synthesizing of substances with complicated structure such as pharmaceuticals, synthetic dyes, fragrances, photochemical materials, fine and pure reagents, is problematic. Synthesis is tedious, reaction stages are not easy and with low yield, then complicated purification and special demands for quality of target product. Then conversion of the fine organic synthesis to the profitable technology was considered as an art and until recent times gas been estimate for the development of chemical industry. Nevertheless during the last 25 years changes were dramatic. Fine organic technologies were challenged by bio- and nanotechnology, and modernization and changes of materials, reagents and pharmaceuticals became more and more frequent. To meet actual demands of nowadays market, traditional enterprise has to explore innovative approach, implement versatile production lines and produce limited portion of products on request.

with state-of-the-art chromatographic separation and high sensitivity detection. This "unified chromatography" system showcases complete automation of SFE sample preparation and analysis by liquid or supercritical fluid chromatography and highly sensitive mass spectrometric detection.
New opportunities for pharmacology: graphene oxide biosensors During the last years, label-free biosensors based on photonic and plasmonic waveguides had a significant impact on drug discovery and development. Analysis of drug candidates and their interactions with different targets by biosensing provides valuable data on their efficacy and toxicity. This will lead to the replacement of animal and human studies by label-free biosensing. The main obstacle preventing broad implementation of biosensors in biochemical and pharmacological research is insufficient sensitivity. This problem can be solved by using new two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene and its chemical derivatives, which possess unique physical and chemical properties. The use of two-dimensional materials as linking layers in interfaces of biosensor chips was demonstrated. In addition, it was shown that chips could be used multiple times.
State collection of phytopathogenic microorganisms from All-Russian Research Institute of Phytopathology State collection of phytopathogenic microorganisms from All-Russian Research Institute of Phytopathology was created some fifty year ago as an outcome of long-term investigations of species specificity and structure of intraspecies populations in different regions of the country. Collection offers various possibilities for the phytopathogenic, selecting, genetic investigations.
How we explored NMR in USSR. Progress of analytical methodology in USSR and Russia. Part 1 The first part of historical survey on the investigation, study and application of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Russia covers 40ties and 50ties of the last century. Were given the insight of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and memoirs of pioneering researches utilizing that power and universal instrument for the analysis of structure and content of chemical substances and materials.
