The Department of Chemistry of Natural Compounds was founded in 1946 on the initiative of Doctor of Chemical Sciences A.S. Sadykov. In 1956, in order to further study the flora at the department, a scientific laboratory on the problems of the chemistry of natural compounds was created.

During the existence of the department, it was supervised: in 1946-1972. - Acad. AbidSodikovichSadykov; in 1972-1980 - prof. O.S. Otroshchenko; in 1981-1985 and 1988-1992 - prof. HA. Aslanov; 1985-1988 - Assoc. T.K. Yunusov; in 1992-1998 - prof. S. A. Auelbekov; in 1998-2004 - Acad. Sh.I. Salikhov; in 2004-2005 - prof. A.O. Sadykov; in 2005-2012 - prof. D.N. Dalimov; in 2012-2013 - Associate Professor A. Kh. Khaitboyev; in 2013-2019 Associate Professor S.A. Mulyanov, from 2019 to the present, he heads the department of Doctor of Chemical Sciences, prof. Boboev B.N.

Currently, the department teaches 10 disciplines in the direction of bachelor's degree 5140500-Chemistry and 5141800- Chemistry of natural physiologically active compounds and 8 disciplines in the specialty of magistracy 5A140501-Chemistry (bioorganic chemistry), 5A140502-Radiochemistry. These subjects are taught by prof. Boboev B.N., prof. Dalimova G.N. associate professors Khamidova G.R., Maulyanov S.A., prof. Sherimbetov S., prof. B. Kurbanov, prof. E. Botirov, Ph.D. Khodzhaev S., Yuldashev H., PhD Yormatov B., Berdiev N. Young PhD teachers Eshbekov A., doctoral students Sarabekov A., Mustafaeva D., masters Baykhanova N., Siddikova S.

For bachelors in the disciplines of the department, a monograph "Chemistry, biology and physiological properties of plants of the genus Lagochilus" and a number of teaching aids have been published, a textbook "Introduction to the chemistry of carbohydrates and lipids" has been published. Textbooks "Bioorganic Chemistry" and "Methods of Teaching Chemistry" will be created for the new academic year. Undergraduate and graduate students are provided with new generation textbooks.

The scientific direction of the department is devoted to the study of medicinal plants growing in Uzbekistan, their isolation, modification and study of the biological activity of compounds, which are carried out in cooperation with state research projects and institutes of the Academy of Sciences. As a result of recent scientific research, the drug Inebrin was approved by the Pharmacological Committee of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Uzbekistan and recommended for use in medicine as an antiallergic and hemostatic agent.

Taking into account the relevance of the scientific direction of the department, as well as in connection with the 75th anniversary of the formation of the department, on May 27, 2021, a Republican scientific and practical conference was held with the participation of foreign scientists on the topic "Prospects for the development of the chemistry of natural compounds in Uzbekistan."

During the years of independence, under the guidance of the teaching staff in the scientific direction of the department, 10 doctoral and 18 candidate dissertations have been defended.

In recent years, the department has implemented the following research projects: OT-A-10-2 - Development of technology for the creation and production of drugs against skin cancer based on certain alkaloids (scientific supervisor Maulyanov S.A.)
YOА-11-3 - development of new effective agents with antioxidant properties based on local raw materials (supervisor N. Berdiev)
YOA-11-4 - Development of a technology for obtaining a hemostatic collagen film based on local raw materials (head Sherimbetov S.G.)

OT-F7-61 “New derivatives of heterocyclic compounds; synthesis, structure and biological properties "(supervisor Boboev BN)

The department also carries out work and established contacts with foreign organizations, in particular, the Surgut State University, the Kazakh National University named after S. Al-Farabi, Xinjiang Institute of Physics and Technology of the Academy of Sciences of the People's Republic of China and the Shanghai Institute of Mathematics and Medicine.
