Department of Chemistry
The chemical department began its activity in 1953, which was part of the faculty of natural sciences. By 1959, 51 students studied according to the “Chemistry and Biology” curriculum, in which chemistry took the leading place. During these years, “Teacher of Chemistry and Biology” was trained for 5 years.
In 1972, the department of chemistry was divided into two independent departments: the department of organic and biological chemistry (head of the department Auezov Jumanazar Auezovych) and general and inorganic chemistry (head of the department Ph.D., docent Shashkov Viktor Ipatovich). The department of general and inorganic chemistry was recognized as one of the three main departments in the republic.
C 1973-1974. position Department of Organic and Biological Chemistry, Ph.D. Kovalyonok Zinaida Dmitrievna.
In 1975-76. Head of the Department of Organic and Biological Chemistry, Ph.D. Voronova Margarita Petrovna.
From 1977 to 2003, professor, doctor of science. Dolgova Zinaida Yakovlevna headed the department of organic and biological chemistry (since 1998 it was renamed to the department of biochemistry and biochemistry).
In 1980, the department of general and inorganic chemistry was renamed to the department of inorganic chemistry, and the department of organic and biological chemistry was renamed to the department of organic chemistry. From 1982 to 1992, the department of inorganic chemistry was headed by Nikolay Kharitonovych Pikov, after which the department was renamed to the department of organic and physical chemistry (1992).
In 1984, 2 independent departments were created on the basis of the department of inorganic chemistry – inorganic chemistry and chemical technology; Department of analytical and physical colloidal chemistry. From 1984 to 1992, professor Uvaliev Yumiash Karimovich was the head of the department of inorganic chemistry and chemical technology.

The teaching staff of the Department of Chemistry conducts development of research in the following 4 priority scientific areas:
- Improving the methodological basis for analytical control of samples of natural and man-made production
Relevance of the research topic: until recently, in analytical chemistry in production, much attention was paid only to the convergence and reproducibility of results obtained using a certain method, and not to their traceability to a specific standard or SI unit.
Purpose of the work: Analysis of dump slag from a copper plant for the content of lead, copper and zinc using two spectrophotometric instruments - an atomic absorption and an atomic emission spectrometer with inductively coupled plasma after appropriate sample preparation.
Expected results: in the work on the analysis of slag from the copper waste production of Management Company MK Kazzinc LLP, much attention will be paid to sample preparation for the quantitative determination of copper, lead and zinc by two methods: atomic absorption and atomic emission with inductively coupled plasma. The introduction of modern characteristics such as uncertainty will improve the quality of analysis, especially its accuracy and reproducibility.
1.1. Development of a methodology for analyzing metallurgical production products of Management Company MK Kazzinc LLP using spectrophotometric methods. Scientific supervisor – Professor of the Department of Chemistry Aubakirova R.A.
- Phytochemical study of some plant species growing in Eastern Kazakhstan in order to identify their physiological activity and medicinal properties
Relevance of the research topic: the extraction of biologically active components from certain plant species of the Scrophulariaceae, Asteraceae and other families growing in Eastern Kazakhstan is very relevant. The study of the phytochemical properties of some plant species of various families is carried out with the aim of developing new domestic herbal preparations for medical pharmaceuticals.
Purpose of the work: Detection of biologically active components from plant raw materials of some plant species growing in the East Kazakhstan region, and study of their composition using modern physical and chemical methods.
Expected results: development of a method for detecting biologically active compounds of certain types of plant families in order to establish their chemical composition and biological activity.
2.1 Study of the chemical composition and biological activity of some plant species of the Scrophulariaceae, Asteraceae and other families growing in East Kazakhstan region. Scientific supervisor – PhD Doctor Ibraeva M.M.
- Problems of solid fuel processing and synthesis of new compounds
Relevance of the research topic: treatment of industrial wastewater, polluted waters of rivers and reservoirs is a necessity in solving environmental problems. In this regard, the study of sorbents based on humic acids, used in the purification of aquatic environments from contaminated impurities, and which do not have a harmful effect on the environment and humans, is a very urgent task and has a promising scientific direction.
Purpose of the work: to develop a method for producing humic acids (HA) based on brown coal from the Kenderlyk deposit and using them in the future as a substrate for modified sorbents.
Expected results: establishing optimal conditions for obtaining natural sorbents from oxidized brown coal for purifying wastewater from harmful pollutants (heavy metal ions) and studying the physicochemical properties of the resulting sorbents using modern instrumental methods.
3.1 Development of a method for the production of humic acids (HA) based on brown coal from the Kenderlyk deposit and their further use as a substrate for modified sorbents. Scientific supervisor – associate prof. Tantibaeva B.S.
- Current issues in teaching chemistry in higher and secondary schools
Relevance of the research topic: identification, theoretical justification and experimental testing of the implementation of pedagogical conditions for the formation of a professionally oriented learning environment using the regional component; increasing the level of creativity, independence, interest of students and students through the use of traditional and experimental methods in the process of studying chemistry in the educational process of higher and secondary schools will increase the level of training of university and school graduates.
Expected results: development of theoretical models of teaching methods and substantiation of optimal scientific and pedagogical approaches to the implementation of these methodological developments.
