On February 26-28, Moscow was the venue of the bilateral Russia-India Intergovernmental Commission. A meeting of the Working Group on Russian-Indian Cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovations was held within its framework.
Scientists succeeded to 10-fold lower the detection limit for onco drugs in cancer cells. The study was performed at Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS. This discovery will allow analyzing potency and action of drugs on individual tumor fragments and developing personalized therapies for oncological patients.
Young ZIOC researchers D. Eremin, A. Kashin and K. Galkin have been awarded 2017 RAS medals in general and technical chemistry for the research cycle “Studies of Chemical Reaction Mechanisms by Integrated Physicochemical Methods”.
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.
