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”.
On November 20-21 2017, Zelinsky Institute hosted a Russia-UK Workshop on Catalysis. The event was organized with the assistance of the UK Embassy as part of the UK-Russia Year of Science and Education.
Haldor Topsoe A/S (Denmark) continues its annual support program for postgraduate students majoring in Heterogeneous Catalysis launched more than 20 years ago by the company founder Dr. Haldor Topsoe (1913 - 2013) for rewarding young scientists engaged in heterogeneous catalysis studies.
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.
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.
