His scientific family includes more than 50 postdoctoral fellows, postgraduate students and visiting associates. He is a member of the Advisory Board in Chemical Physics Letters, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Russian Chemical Reviews, Russian Chemical Bulletin, Russian Journal of Physical Chemistry, Mendeleev Communications. Editor-in-Chief of Russian Journal of Physical Chemistry.Focus on Physics. Anatoly Buchachenko was born in Plesetsk now well known Russian Space Center, September 7, 1935. He is married to Maya Buchachenko, technical editor of Science Publishers,their son Alexei is the Research Fellow in Moscow University, the daughter is a book art designer. Hobby modeling of the ancient wooden churches, wooden architecture.
Chemistry and physics of stable radicals and high spin molecules, ESR spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy of paramagnetics, spin chemistry, organic (molecular) ferromagnets. Buchachenko is one of the founders and leaders in spin chemistry. He discovered magnetic isotope effect, a new remarkable phenomenon of fundamental importance for chemistry, geochemistry, physics and biology. He observed microwave emission generated by chemical reaction (chemical maser, 1978) and formulated principles of chemical radiophysics. He is also the author of the radio induced magnetic isotope effect and spin catalysis. He has contributed new ideas in design and synthesis of molecular ferromagnets.
