Main scientific results

After presenting PhD thesis, Dr. Molotkovsky has specialized in lipid chemistry and membranology. In this field he developed several new methods: syntheses of some complex phospholipids, new way for resolving racemic alcohols, syntheses of fluorescent and photoaffine probes. In collaboration with Russian and foreign colleagues, new data on lipid-protein structure of serum lipoproteins, erythrocyte membrane, and influenza virus were collected; ganglioside reception of cholera toxin, and membrane topography of cytochrome P-450 were studied; a series of model studies of bilayer membranes was performed. After presenting Dr. Chemistry thesis (1985), one of the main fields of study in Laboratory of Lipid Chemistry, which was headed by Dr. Molotkovsky in 1991—2007, is synthesis of lipid-modified antitumor preparation elaboration of their targeted delivery to tumors.
