Alexander Fainleib


Prof. Alexander Fainleib, 62 years old, is a Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU),Head of laboratory of Thermally Stable Polymers and Composites working at Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry (IMC) of the NASU. He received his Master degree in Chemistry at Saratov State University in Russia in 1979and his Ph.D. at Institute of Organo-Element Compounds of the Academy of Sciences of USSR in Moscow, Russia in 1984. During his PhD period, he has focused his research on the chemistry of multifunctional organic isocyanates, cyanates, and carbodiimides with the development of a new thermoreactive nitrogen-containing polymer networks for adhesives, coatings, binders for carbon-, glass- and organic plastics. He received his D.Sc. in Macromolecular Chemistry at IMC NASU in 1996. In 1990s his research activities were mainly centered on synthesis and characterization of high temperature resistant triazine-containing polymers, copolymers and Interpenetrating polymer networks. In 2000s he started his research in the field of hybrid organic-inorganic polymer nanocomposites

A. Fainleib was a leader or co-coordinator of 17 international projects, had 12 international grants/fellowships, he was invited professor at different universities 11 times. Prof. Fainleib is a co-coordinator of International French-Ukrainian Associated Laboratory “POLYNANOPOR”.
