Student research includes writing abstracts and carrying out experiments.
The research activities involving students in 2013-2015 :
● 12 scientific articles and 56 abstracts.
●  11 patents of Ukraine for utility model
●  116 scientific reports at international, national and university conferences.
In 2013 the student of the Faculty of Park and Gardening Management and Landscape Architecture A. Turko received the diploma of the third degree in the national competition of student research in natural and technical sciences and the humanities in the field "Chemical Sciences" (supervisor Prof. N.M. Antraptseva).
Innovation activity
  - scientific and methodical recommendations "purposeful synthesis of new phosphates with micro elements;
  - specifications for the production and use of two new mineral feed additives for farm animals.
The staff  tested the practical relevance and effectiveness of the first synthesized and 36 investigated solid solutions and 38 hydrated phosphates of anhydrous divalent metals  in experimental working conditions as:
  - Preparations for treatment of seeds of pine and spruce trees;
  - Organic fertilizer with trace elements for growing seedlings of western arborvitae;
  - Preparations for growing oak silkworm;
  - New mineral feed additives for cattle.
The achievements of scientists are exhibited at the permanent exhibition of scientific developments of NULES of Ukraine and the International Agricultural Exhibitions "Agro" and are awarded with diplomas.
 the Department of General Chemistry provides services :
  ● synthesis, transfer of technology of double mono-and polyphosphates with a set of specific micronutrient content and solubility.
  ●   recommendations on the use of double phosphates and polyphosphates trace elements as:
     - highly regulated content of micronutrients and trace elements solubility;
     - nutrient solutions for growing vegetables in terms of open and under glass soil;
     - mineral food additives with trace elements;
     - fungicides for pre-treatment of seeds;
     - protection against corrosion.
