V. Bakul Institute for Superhard Materials

Appeal for charitable assistance

V. Bakul Institute of Superhard Materials National Academy of Sciences (NAS) of Ukraine in Kyiv appeals to legal entities, individuals with whom we had a partnership and contractual relationships, and all those who are not indifferent to Ukrainian science and can provide charitable support for repair and restoration work from the missile strikes on its territory by the Russian Armed Forces in March 2022.

The missile strike resulted in the destruction and damage of buildings and structures containing laboratory and technological equipment used for advanced scientific research. A total of 13 buildings were damaged, of which two were partially destroyed (in need of major repairs), 7 were significantly damaged (need of partial restoration), 4 were partially damaged (windows need to be replaced).


  • 8774.17 m2 of glass and window blocks;
  • 618 m2 of the suspended ceiling;
  • 141 interior doors;
  • 8 metal doors;
  • 5 gates;
  • 32 air conditioners;
  • 4 industrial ventilation systems.

28 communication facilities need to be restored. The total cost of the repair is estimated at 3 million dollars. Emergency assistance with finances and material resources is needed to return to the normal mode of operation of the Institute. Total damage – more than 2 million USD.

You can see the destruction by following this link.


 We will be grateful to all our friends and colleagues, organizations and companies in Ukraine and abroad for all possible assistance to our Institute by bank transfer to charity accounts:

Director of V. Bakul Institute of Superhard Materials of NAS of Ukraine, Full Member of the NAS of Ukraine Volodymyr TURKEVYCH
Chairman of thetrade union V.Bakul Institute of Superhard Materials of NAS of Ukraine, Dr.Sci., Prof. Valery LAVRINENKO
V. Bakul Institute for Superhard Materials of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine - is a large European science and technology center.

The Institute is engaged in the development of processes for production and application of synthetic diamond, cubic boron nitride and other superhard materials, high-density high-tech ceramics, and cemented carbides. We deal also with manufacturing structural products and tools of the above materials.

Fundamental research:

physico-chemical processes of forming, growth and study the characteristics of mono- and polycrystalline, dispersed materials, diamond and diamond-like films in a wide range of temperatures and pressures; development of methods of spontaneous and directed regulated synthesis of superhard materials and development of methods of static, explosive and epitaxial synthesis.

Priority-driven elaborations:

large monocristals of synthetic diamonds; elite grindpowder and micropowder of synthetic diamonds and cubic boron nitride; polycristalline and composite superhard materials based on diamond and cubic boron nitride; diamond and carbide tool for higly efficient metal-machining, boring, stone-machining, coal output and geological survey; articles of ceramics; polising pastes for high-exect optics; superprecision lather of diamond turning and polishing; technologies of precisely machining of metals, glass and ceramics.

We invite scientists, producers, investors, businessmen for long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation, serious and fruitful work in science and production economic sector of Ukraine. We will be sincerely grateful for show interest, scientific, technical and commercial suggestions.

Sincerely yours, Prof. V.Z.Turkevich, Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Director of the Institute
