New mechanism of cis-trans isomerization of unsaturated compounds with pre-ionization of labile bonding and fast rotation in ion pair was theoretically explained and experimentally proved for the first time in the works with V.A.Burmistrov's participation.
Starting from 1981 V.A. Burmistrov is a leader of a new scientific direction "Supramolecular calamitic liquid crystals" established by him.
During the past twenty years under his leadership, more than 250 new mesogenic compounds with reactive substituents capable of chemical modification and self-assemble into supramolecular liquid crystal ensembles were synthesized and characterized. Under the guidance and personal participation of V.A.Burmistrov for the first time systematic studies of specific interactions in liquid crystal systems were conducted, laws of mesogens self-assembling were justified by hydrogen bonds.
The results obtained allowed to establish effective liquid crystal stationary phases for gas chromatography with unique structural selectivity. A new generation of mesogenic stabilizers for polymers - polyolefine, polyvilyl chloride, elastomers was developed. New materials based on supramolecular mesogens are protected by copyright certificates of the USSR and the Russian Federation patents.
In recent years, data on the mechanisms of chemical reactions involving macroheterocyclic compounds - porphyrins, phthalocyanines and their analogues: complex formation, axial coordination and catalytic oxidation have been obtained. The possibility in principle of the development of advanced hybrid materials based on liquid crystals and macroheterocycles or their precursors was established.


V.A. Burmistrov read the following lecture courses: "Colloid Chemistry", "Polymer Chemistry", "Polymer Physicochemistry", "Physics of Macromolecular Compounds", "Reactivity of Macromolecular Compounds". He is a member of three doctoral dissertation councils. 17 candidate and 2 doctoral dissertations were defended under his supervision. He acted as an opponent at dissertations in chemistry and chemical technology many times.


V.A. Burmistrov is an author of 190 scientific articles. Most of them were published in the leading journals "Physical Chemistry", "Organic Chemistry", "Structural Chemistry", "General Chemistry"and in foreign journals "Org. magn.reson.", "Liq. Cryst.", "J. Porphyrins Phthalocyanines". Theses of 260 reports on International and Russian conferences were published, 30 copyright certificates of the USSR and patents of the Russian Federation are received by him.
