Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics (IPCP) of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Russian Federation
The Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics (IPCP) of the Russian Academy of Sciences is the largest Institute of the research centre in Chernogolovka. The Institute consists of 10 scientific departments and about 100 laboratories each one held by independent research groups. IPCP carry out investigations in the following fields: general problems of chemical physics, structure of molecules and solids, kinetics and mechanisms of complex chemical reactions, chemical physics of explosion and combustion, chemical physics of polymer synthesis and modification, chemical physics of biological processes and systems, chemical materials science. The Research Group for Molecular and Hybrid Electronics at IPCP led by Dr Lyubov Frolova conducts a broad scope of fundamental and application-oriented research on the application of organic semiconductor materials in a range of devices such as organic and perovskite solar cells, photodetectors, memory elements, chemical sensors based on organic field-effect transistors.
