Ksenia Egorova Wins L’Oréal-UNESCO Award

PhD Ksenia Egorova (ZIOC Laboratory of Metal-Complex and Nanoscale Catalysts) has become a Laureate of the prestigious L’Oréal-UNESCO Award for the outstanding contribution to the advancement of science recognized by academic community. The L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science International Awards program identifies and supports eminent women in science throughout the world.

We cordially congratulate Ksenia and wish her further success in science, new discoveries and victories!  

Ksenia Egorova’s research was accomplished under the ZIOC RAS project supported by the RSF grant. The project has opened up a new interdisciplinary area – mechanistic studies of catalytic systems at the junction of chemistry and biology.  For details, see the review published in Angewandte Chemie (impact factor 11.7): Which Metals are Green for Catalysis? Comparison of the Toxicities of Ni, Cu, Fe, Pd, Pt, Rh, and Au Salts.

Important events:

Professor Mario Pargliaro Lecturing at Zelinsky Institute Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
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
Steep and Thorny Way of a Scientist in Russia Prof. Valentine Ananikov participated in the plenary panel discussion HR Challenge for the Society held in the framework of VII Russian National Congress of Young Scientists and Specialists on November 30 – December 1 2016 in MEPhI.
