Prof. Keith J. Stevenson in ZIOC RAS

 On October 5th 2016, in the ZIOC library, Prof. Keith J. Stevenson gave a talk on

Development of Advanced Tools for Catalyst Evaluation and Screening. Prof. Stevenson is

Director of the Skoltech Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage, Skolkolvo Institute of Science and Technology, Moscow.  http://faculty.skoltech.ru/people/keithstevenson

The lecture dealt with the development of advanced research technologies and characterization of catalysts for various electrochemical processes, particularly those related to the environment-friendly energy conversion. Catalytic properties of nanoscale materials were discussed. Limitations of fuel cells as barriers to their successful commercialization were highlighted. Among new tools for the systematic evaluation of nanoscale catalyst performance in the environment-friendly energy conversion was suggested a simple, reliable and low-cost electrochemical method for detecting individual catalytic nanoparticles with a view to study homogeneity by catalyst size and activity. The approach is also useful for the catalyst size quantification. Peculiarities of mechanisms of various electrochemical processes such as oxygen hydrogenation in terms of the catalyst nanoparticle structure were discussed.

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.
