Researcher interests: Colloid chemistry and crystallization phenomena: emulsifiers - extraction from natural sources (hydrocolloids, proteins, saponins). Synthesis of emulsifiers, detergents and stabilizers. Synthesis of graft-copolymeric amphiphiles. Study of microstructure of nonionic L2-microemulsions. Double emulsions for sustained and slow release of active matter. Cloudy emulsions. Dispersions of dyes (photographic) colorants (lycopene) and active organic materials. Crystallization of water-soluble materials in the presence of surfactants. Polymorphism in crystallization of fats, oils and lipids. Surface-active enzymes extracted from plants. Microemulsions as micro-reactions for enzymatic processes.
