ZIOC RAS Takes the Lead in Russian Chemical and Material Science Ranking

The European Scientific-Industrial Chamber published its ranking of Russian scientific research institutions (World Research Institutions Ranking − WRIR-2015 (RF)).

Globally, almost 16,000 scientific institutions participated in WRIR in 2015. All participating institutions were split to 10 categories according to their specialization. There were 3 levels of research quality: Level A (A to AAA) corresponds to "high quality research performance."  Level B (B to BBB+) corresponds to "good quality research performance." Finally level C (C to CCC+) corresponds to "quality research performance." Only those institutions who received ranking from A to C were included in WRIR-2015.

More than 400 Russian scientific research centers participated in the ranking. Among them, 76 were estimated to correspond to Level A, 18 to Level AA, and 3 to Level AA+.

The European Scientific-Industrial Chamber highly appraised research performance quality of Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS. The Institute improved its previous year ranking and moved up from Level BBB+ to Level AA. It ranks first in the Chemistry and Material Science category among 56 Russian scientific institutions included in the ranking. Full list is available at Link.

Selective In-Situ Metal Azide Reactions Alexey Sukhorukov, N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Moscow, Russia, and colleagues studied the selective reactions of in-situ generated metal azides on N,N-bis(oxy)enamines. By combining readily generated bis(oxy)enamine substrates with sodium azide and one of a variety of metal salts (including Mg, Cu, Zn, Co, and Ni), the researchers showed that the metal cation selectively alters the mechanism to favor the formation of specific organoazide products.
On February 1st, Prof. Gleb Sukhorukov from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, gave a lecture “Remote Controlled Delivery Nanosystems” at ZIOC.
“We can record up to one thousand spectra per day” Director of Zelinsky Institute about Devising New Molecules
