Full Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS of Ukraine) V.V. Goncharuk was the first in the world to have proposed the third Law of chemical kinetics. He presented the formation and development of hydrosphere from quite new positions based on the established fact of the decisive impact of the concentration ratio of hydrogen isotopes in water.
Known specialist in the field of chemistry and technology of water, physical chemistry, chemical kinetics and catalysis, colloid chemistry and photochemistry.
Research in the field of purification and disinfection of natural and waste water with the use of ozone, hydrogen peroxide, UV irradiation and the creation of highly effective integrated water treatment technologies with the help of coagulation, flotation, photocatalysis, sorption, biological, membrane and electrochemical methods.
V.V. Goncharuk proposed a new concept of providing the population with high quality drinking water, as well as fundamentally new standards for drinking water supply sources and for drinking water itself, which include chemical, microbiological, radiochemical indices and biotesting of water.
Under his leadership, unique technologies for water purification from all types of pollution (including radionuclides) and equipment for their implementation have been created, which successfully work in the cities of Boryspil, Kyiv, Donetsk, Novo-Azovsk, Barvinkovo, in Crimea, Mukachevo and others.
