  • composite materials (polymer materials, polymeric membranes, metal materials, materials for the aerospace and energy industries, pigments that absorb RF and SHF; phosphors; fluorinated materials, technology of UHMWPE-I, etc.).
  • light nanostructured alloys based on aluminum, titanium and magnesium;
  • low-tonnage production of multifunctional materials (low-tonnage chemical products, including for the pharmaceutical industry; synthesis of chemical substances for high-energy and pharmaceutical use);
  • new materials for extreme conditions of the Arctic and Siberia;
  • petrochemical and resource-saving technologies; and
  • modeling and forecasting the properties of new materials and their technologies; designing models and methods of multilevel modeling of material properties.
