Dmitry Vadimovich Sviridov (b. 23.04.1960, Minsk) - the chemist. Corresponding Member (2014), Doctor of Chemical Sciences (1999), Professor (2003).
Works in the field of inorganic chemistry. He developed new methods for chemical, sonochemical, and photochemical synthesis of mesostructural oxides and metal oxide composites and, on this basis, proposed new photobiocidal materials with record pathophysiological activity, microcapsular systems of the skeletal type with the function of photocontrol and high-performance catalysts for low-temperature desulfurization of hydrocarbons. Developed the scientific foundations of the new method of photocatalytic lithography of micron and submicron resolution, investigated the role of quantum-dimensional effects in the formation of the photocatalytic properties of molecular nanocrystals. He led the development and implementation of new chemical regulators of concrete hardening and water repellents of building materials at Belarusian enterprises. He proposed new chemotron sensor devices with the function of internal amplification of the analytical signal, analogs of field-effect transistors based on nanoscale carbon phases, microdosing devices and micromanipulators with photo-addressing for working with biological objects.
Author of more than 300 scientific papers, including 8 monographs, 6 textbooks, 25 copyright certificates and patents.
Prize of the Belarusian State University named after A. N. Sevchenko (2008) for a significant contribution to the physics of structured carbon materials (clusters, nanotubes, ion-implanted polymers and diamonds) and the development of new elements of electronics based on them.
