Aleksey Kuznetsov

Federico Santa María Technical University

Dr. Aleksey Kuznetsov pursued his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Utah State University, and graduated after three years of doctorate studies with a specialization in Computational/Theoretical Chemistry. He has been working in various subareas of this field of research since 2000. After several postdoctoral and visiting professor positions in Germany, the United States, and Brazil, Dr. Kuznetsov obtained a permanent faculty position at the Department of Chemistry, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa Maria, Santiago, Chile. He has been working there since 2019, focusing his research on the computational design of various complexes of porphyrins, including core-modified porphyrins, with nanoparticles, fullerenes, and graphenes, along with studies of transition metal complexes, organic compounds with pharmacological applications, and more.

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.
