Pavel Troshin

Pavel’s areas of scientific interest include solar energy conversion, electrochemical energy storage, organic and molecular electronics,  organic synthesis,  biomedical and fullerene chemistry, conversion of atmospheric CO2 to artificial fuel using solar light energy (“solar fuel”).

Dr Troshin graduated with a specialist degree in Organic and Physical Chemistry from Higher Chemical College of RAS at the D. I. Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology. In 2006, he obtained his PhD degree in Physical Chemistry from the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics of Russian  Academy of Sciences (IPCP RAS). Over the last 10 years, he coordinated and led more than 30 different research projects, for which he raised state & industry grants, including grants  from the Russian Science Foundation, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Russian Ministry of Science and Education, grants of European Science Foundation and contracts with Russian and foreign companies and research centers.

Pavel has coauthored more than 190 publications, supervised  >30 PhD and MSc students. He has developed and taught university courses on fullerene chemistry and organic electronics. Now he is teaching the course Organic Materials for Electronics, Photonics, Energy Generation and Storage at Skoltech (term 3) (see ; Full syllabus:

Prior to joining Skoltech, he was also appointed as a head of the Laboratory of Functional Materials for Electronics and Medicine at IPCP RAS. Currently he is also a Chair of jont Research Center of Nanostructured Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage founded together by Skoltech and IPCP RAS in 2016.
