President of the Humboldt Foundation in ZIOC RAS

On June 24th 2016, Professor Helmut Schwarz, the President of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, visited Zelinsky Institute. He has been engaged in the studies of gas-phase reactions between organic compounds and transition metal ions for more than 40 years. Prof. Schwarz is a highly cited organic chemist and classic of organic mass spectrometry (his h-index by WoS is 80).







He presented his concept of on-surface catalytic reaction modelling by simple reactions of isolated molecules and atoms in the gas phase in the lecture “Menage-a-Trois: Single-Atom-Catalysis, Mass Spectrometry, and Computational Chemistry” at ZIOC RAS.

 

Isolated metal carbene complexes generated in the gas phase and introduced in thermal reactions in single collision conditions exhibit unique reactivity in well-known processes of metathesis and cyclopropanation. The conceptual understanding of the reaction mechanisms gives an opportunity to directly experience delicate properties of reactive intermediates, i.e. metal carbene complexes, and facilitate the identification of active sites of catalysts – the so called “aristocratic atoms”.

Congratulations! Valentine Ananikov has been elected to Academia Europaea! The European Academy of Sciences (Academia Europaea) was founded in 1988. It unites about four thousand globally acknowledged experts in mathematics, medicine, natural sciences, humanities, law, economy, and social and political sciences from many countries of Europe. Among its members are also European scientists who live in other regions of the world. Currently, it includes seventy two Nobel laureates and it should be highlighted that many of them were elected to the Academy before winning the Prize.
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.
