New micromesoporous aluminosilicate zeolite-like materials, nanostructured porous carbon-containing materials, including carbon materials doped with hetero-elements, carbon structures with metal nanoparticles, nanoporous carbon nitride, silicon carbide etc. with different functional properties were created using new physical and chemical approaches to targeted regulation of structural and textural characteristics, and chemical nature of the surface.

The authors have developed highly active nanostructured catalysts, including photocatalysts, for industrial processes, and fine chemicals, pharmaceutical, environmental protection, in particular hydrolytic hydrogenation of arabinogalactan (biomass conversion), the synthesis of compounds with anti-Parkinson activity, conversion of carbon dioxide into valuable organic products (methane, acetaldehyde); highly effective adsorbents of hydrogen and carbon dioxide, materials for supercapacitors were created.

The results of research on the topic of the series were published in 33 articles (24 in journals included in Scopus database), abstracts of 33 presentations at conferences. The authors’ works were cited in 56 scientific journals, total citation index is 60 (according to Scopus database), h-index = 5. Four patents of Ukraine have been received.

Total number of authors’ publications: Shcherban a co-author of 40 articles, 32 abstracts and 3 patents of Ukraine; Filonenko a co-author of 20 articles, 19 abstracts and 4 patents of Ukraine.
