L. P. Tsiganok, researcher, educator, department head, analytical chemistry, analytical reagents, heteropoly complexes


The article is dedicated to the anniversary of the birth of Lyudmila Pavlovna Tsyganok. A well-known scientist in the field of analytical chemistry, founder and head of a scientific school for studying the properties of heteropoly complexes, professor, Doctor of Chemical Sciences, honored educator of the Oles Honchar Dnipro National University.

After graduating from the Faculty of Chemistry of Dnepropetrovsk State University in 1958, Lyudmila Pavlovna worked as a laboratory assistant at the Dnepropetrovsk Institute of Chemical Technology. In 1964, she began her teaching and scientific activities at her Alma mater at the Faculty of Chemistry. For a long time, Lyudmila Pavlovna was the head of the Department of Analytical chemistry. Later, she headed the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of High Molecular Compounds. The range of scientific interests of L. P. Tsiganok was mainly devoted to the chemistry of heteropoly complexes. The scientific school, which she headed and actively developed for a long time, was engaged in the study of the physicochemical and chemical-analytical properties of heteropoly anions, the determination of optimal conditions for the controlled synthesis of heteropoly complexes, the development and implementation of modern methods for analyzing real objects using heteropoly complexes as analytical reagents. Lyudmila Pavlovna for the first time proved the possibility of formation and existence of molybdenum heteropoly complexes of Keggin structure for elements of group IIIA - Gallium, Indium and Thallium. Lyudmila Pavlovna repeatedly headed the implementation of state budget topics and was the supervisor of dissertation works of graduate students and two doctoral students. She is author of more than 380 publications, 2 monographs, 5 author's certificates, 5 patents. L. P. Tsiganok has trained more than one generation of scientists and teachers working in educational institutions in Ukraine and around the world.
