The main area of L.M. Kustov’s scientific activity is the development of catalytic processes and new materials, including hybrid ones, based on the principles of “green” chemistry. The use of non-traditional methods of activation of catalysts (microwave, electron beams, plasma) made it possible to increase their activity in hydrogenation, dehydrogenation and oxidation of various substrates by
New effective catalysts for the hydrogenation of various substrates based on the “giant” hydrogen spillover principle, the opening of naphthene cycles, metathesis, isomerization, nitration, oxidation of aromatic compounds and paraffins, and the conversion of glycerol to diols and lactic acid were developed. These catalysts successfully passed pilot tests in Russia and abroad.
New systems for hydrogen storage based on the processes of hydrogenation-dehydrogenation of aromatic substrates and significantly exceeding the capacity (8% H2) of the known systems
