Deputy Chairman of the Council and Chairman of the Scientific and Technical Council of the Composite Cluster of St. Petersburg. Field of activity: scientific, technical and production activities in the field of production technology and application of nanodispersed fulleroid systems; research of physical and physicochemical phenomena caused by the introduction of these systems into polymeric and inorganic composite materials; production of special composite alloys, high-performance paint and varnish products and new structural thermal insulation materials for construction, transportation and power engineering. Andrey Ponomarev organized and headed ASTRIN CJSC in 1993. The company was focused on the development and production of high-tech products in the field of chemical current sources and their control systems in integral and hybrid design. In 1994, the company organized a department of carbon clusters and a laboratory of applied research in the field of their application, and since 1995 ASTRIN CJSC began to produce nanodispersed fulleroid materials: low fullerenes C60 and C70, their mixtures, multilayer carbon nanotubes and other types of technical fulleroid nanocarbon. In 1998-99, ASTRIN employees isolated and began to produce new types of nanodispersed fulleroid systems – astralenes. The complex of numerous and diverse R&D activities of the company in the areas of practical use of fullerene materials led to the development of new types of composite polymeric and inorganic materials, to the creation of new technologies, including those for the machine-building complex and construction industry).
