Student from Moscow Chemical Lyceum Won the Competition at Taiwan International Science Fair 2016

Nikita Milevsky, a high school student from the Moscow Chemical Lyceum, which is part to the continuous chemical education system practiced at ZIOC RAS, took part in the Taiwan International Science Fair 2016 held on January 24-30 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. It is an annual educational and competition platform for thousands of high school students from across the world. Nikita was nominated in the category Chemistry and ranked first with the presentation “Light as energy source in chemical reaction. New synthesis of valuable dithienylacetylenes”. The research was led by Dr. V.Z. Shirinyan (ZIOC Laboratory of Heterocyclic Compounds).  

For more information see the publication in Chemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds (A. G. Lvov, N. A. Milevsky, V. Z. Shirinian. A convenient alternative method for the synthesis of dithienylacetylenes. Chem. Heterocycl. Compd. 2015, 51, 933. DOI: 10.1007/s10593-015-1800-8).

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.
