Federico Santa María Technical University Chile

Dr. Aleksey Kuznetsov obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Utah State University, the USA. He graduated after 3 years of doctorate studies with a specialization in Computational/Theoretical Chemistry. Since graduation, he has been doing research in various subareas of this field. In 2019, after several postdoctoral and visiting professor positions in Germany, the USA, and Brazil, Dr. Kuznetsov acquired a permanent faculty position at the Department of Chemistry, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa Maria, in Santiago, Chile, where he has been working on the computational design of various complexes of porphyrins, including core-modified porphyrins, with nanoparticles, fullerenes, and graphenes, along with computational studies of various transition metal complexes, organic compounds with potential pharmacological applications, metal-fullerene complexes, compounds with anticorrosive properties, etc.

Azoles are a broad and promising class of five-membered heterocyclic compounds containing from one up to five nitrogen atom(s) that can also contain sulfur or oxygen atoms. Widely used as potent antifungal agents, various azole derivatives have also demonstrated many other promising biological properties. This book covers studies of several types of thiazole-based heterocyclic scaffolds, the development of 4-thiazolidinone and thiazole derivatives with heterocyclic fragments as potential candidates for new drugs against trypanosomiasis, numerous synthetic approaches for the synthesis of 1,2,3-triazoles, the application of N-azole, N,S-azole, and N,O-azole as well as their derivatives as retarders of metallic corrosion, and the integration of azoles in materials used for renewable energy processing and applications and wood treatment.
