The research activities of the Institute of Chemistry of the Slovak Academy of Sciences are aimed at the chemistry and biochemistry of saccharides. The main fields of interest may be classified into the following directions:

  • Synthesis and structure of biologically important mono- and oligosaccharides and their derivatives
  • Structure and functional properties of polysaccharides,their derivatives, and conjugates with other polymers
  • Structure, function, and mechanism of action of glycanases
  • Development of physicochemical methods for structural analysis of carbohydrates
  • Gene engineering and nutritional and biologically active proteins
  • Glycobiotechnology
  • Ecology, taxonomy, and phylogenesis of yeasts and yeasts-like fungi
  • Development of technologies for isolation of natural compounds and preparation of saccharides and their derivatives for commercial purposes
