Prof. Alexander Dudnik in ZIOC RAS

On September 22 2016, Prof Alexander Dudnik (Department of Chemistry, University of California, Davis) visited Zelinsky Institute and gave a lecture "Novel Synthetic Tools and Designs toward High Efficiency Organic Electronic Materials. Prof. Dudnik spoke about methods for the synthesis of new π-conjugated polymers used as organic semiconductors in electronics.

 







The research pertains to the area of energy in the context of sustainable development with a focus on design of new catalytic methods to prepare novel molecular structures and materials for solar cells, state-of-the-art electronic devices such as new-generation OLED displays, flexibles phones, etc., batteries, and tools for biomedical visualization and phototherapy. π-Conjugated polymers have a number of benefits: they are light, flexible, low-cost, incorporate readily available elements and at the same time they have semiconducting properties and exhibit high efficiency when used as organic materials for electronic devices. Prof. Dudnik and his team improved the method of direct polymerization via C-H arylation and used it to synthesize the polymers in the green chemistry manner.

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.
