Vladimir Sergeevich Soldatov (b. 19.05.1937, Smolensk), physical chemist. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1984; corresponding member since 1977), Doctor of Chemical Sciences (1970), Professor (1972). Honored Scientist of the Republic of Belarus (2002).
Scientific works in the field of ion exchange, synthesis and study of polymer sorbents, ion-exchange extractants, on the interaction of polyelectrolytes with complex organic substances. Investigated ion-exchange processes in multi-ion systems, on the basis of which he developed general principles and technology for the production and regeneration of ion-exchange soils. He developed a theory of equilibria occurring when the contact of weak mesh electrolytes, as well as the theoretical foundations of obtaining and rational use of polymer membranes of a given structure for cleaning gases and liquids from microparticles and bacteria. He created microfilters for fine cleaning of technological media, which made it possible to obtain highly integrated microcircuits. He developed scientific foundations and technology for the production of chemically active textile materials (ion exchangers, complexones, catalysts), which have found application in the purification of water and air and as individual means of protecting man from toxic substances. Conducted experimental and theoretical studies of the interaction of ionized organic and inorganic substances with ion-exchange extractants, on the basis of which a new technology was developed for the production of highly purified amino acids, implemented at the Grodno Medical Preparations Plant.
Author of over 650 scientific papers, incl. 4 monographs, 56 patents and inventor certificates.
The Leninist Komsomol Prize in 1971 for a series of works on the thermodynamics of ion-exchange processes. State Prize of the BSSR in 1980 for the development of theoretical principles and technology for producing artificial ionite soil as a universal medium for root nutrition of plants. Prize of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus in 1993 for the series of works "Mathematical modeling of ion-exchange equilibria".
Awarded the Order of the Badge of Honor (1979), medals.
