Winter School on Organic Chemistry (WSOC-2016) at Lomonosov Moscow State University

Young chemists from ZIOC participated in the Winter School on Organic Chemistry (WSOC-2016) organized by the Organic Chemistry Chair, Department of Chemistry, MSU, on January 16-21. The overall goal of the conference was to make the postgraduates familiar with the latest international advances and trends in chemical research.

The WSOC-2016 included three mini courses delivered by top world scientists: Prof V. Georgyan (University of Chicago, USA) "Semi-stable Intermediates in Synthesis", Prof A. Malkov (Loughborough University, UK) "Asymmetric Organocatalysis: General Overview. Application of Chiral Lewis Bases for Activation of Silicon Reagents", and Prof A. Antonchik (Technical University of Dortmund, Germany) "Metal-Free C-H Bond Functionalization". Leading researchers from Russia , Japan and Ukraine gave 12 plenary lectures. Young chemists made 68 presentations and had 12 posters. V.A. Vil, a postgraduate from ZIOC RAS, was among the competitors for the best presentation and ranked third.

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.
