Structure of the scientific positions available on the following page.

Activity of the Institute are carried out in seven specialized research departments: Department of Chemistry, Department of Electrochemistry, Department of Catalysis and Chemical Engineering, Department of Microelectronic Technologies, Department of Materials and Metallurgy, Department of Ecology and Technoeconomics and Department of Remediation.

Activities of the Department of Chemistry covers scientific and applied research in the field of organic chemistry, biochemistry and biotechnology, biomacromolecules, chemistry of synthetic polymer and environmental chemistry.

Department of Electrochemistry deals with fundamental scientific research in the fields of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering:  kinetics of electrode processes, electrochemistry of halogens and their compounds, electroorganic reactions, electrochemistry of double-layer, adsorption of organic compounds, corrosion and corrosion protection, mass transfer in electrochemical systems, electrode materials, metal deposition, electroanalytical chemistry and electrochemical sensors, electrometallurgy, etc.

Department of Microelectronic Technologies deals with multidisciplinary research in the fields of sensors, microelectro­mechanical systems (MEMS), nanoscience and nanotechnology, photonics and plasmonics, as well as semiconductor science and technology. Researches start from the fundamental concepts and theoretical research and ends up with constructed devices or systems.

Department of Catalysis and Chemical Engineering is a unique national research institution in the field of catalysis and chemical engineering. Department covers the entire spectrum of activities in the field of catalysis, catalytic processes and chemical engineering, from basic research and development of new technologies, to their application in the industry.

Department of Materials and Metallurgy doing research in the field of metallurgy of powder and sintered composite materials. The department offers services in the scientific research in the field of powder metallurgy, development of technological processes for the production and application of powder, composite and other special materials, as well as high-quality components for special purpose materials.

Department of Ecology and Technoeconomics is a scientific, research and consulting unit of ICTM, specialized in the areas of engineering and market management in process industries, designing and engineering of process technologies, and laboratory research and testing.

Department of Remediation is focused on the research of application of bioremediation in elimination of dangerous toxic substances from the environment and implementation of thionic bacteria on sulphide substrates – biohydrotechnology. The most significant research relating to the bioremediation of soil contaminated by oil and other organic pollutants.
