Main area of activity of the structural unit: Radioecological studies; Distribution and dynamics of radionuclides in the environment; Development of radiochemical analysis methods; Study radiation-physical and radiation-chemical processes progressing in the presence of radionuclides, oil products and other organic and inorganic compounds in soil and water; Monitoring on Radiation Safety in manufacturing enterprises and areas; Prepare safety recommendations.

Main scientific achievements of the structural unit: Synthetic sorbents (cellulose, diene rubbers, isoprene rubbers) of a new functional group have ben synthesized. Sorbent with sorption capacity for 350 mg/g uranyl ions has been synthesized out of liquid solution under optimal conditions. Synthetic sorbent of phosphate group capable of selective sorbing uranylions out of real formation waters has been synthesized. The effect of pH in the medium, concentration of uranyl ions and sorbent amount on the sorption rate and sorption capacity of a sorbent as well as the desorption of uranyl ions has been studied.
Radioecological studied have been carried out in Surakahani OGPD. The radiation background has been measured in the area. The radionuclide composition of water and soil has been determined. Radioecological monitorings have been conducted in Surakhani and Romana iodine plants. The radionuclide composition and amount of the used coal wastes in the territories of the plants have been identified.
The separation of radioactive elements (226Ra, 228Ra isotopes) from the radioactive wastes in oil-and-gas production industry has been studied.
