On October 7, 2015, ZIOC RAS hosted the 2nd International Conference “Modern Chemical Toxicology”. The Conference gathered about 200 experts in toxicology, addiction medicine and criminalistics from |Russia, Germany, Poland, and Switzerland who demonstrated their findings in basic and applied research.
On October 8-10 2015, the Third Joint Workshop in Organic Electronics of Highly Correlated Molecular Systems was held at the Institute. It was organized by Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS in cooperation with Vorozhtsov Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry.
EuropaCat, the leading European catalytic event, was held from 30th August to 4th September, 2015, in Kazan (Russia). The Congress is a focal point for scientists engaged in innovative catalysis. It serves as a platform for sharing new ideas and discussing the advances in all areas of catalysis. The theme of EuropaCat XII was “Catalysis: Balanced Use of Mineral and Renewable Resources”.
According to the microblog @ChemicalScience of the UK Royal Society of Chemistry, the academic article of the team headed by Prof. V.P. Ananikov was scored in the top 5% of all world journal publications by Altmetric.
The first 3D printer was installed in ZIOC in the Lab headed by Prof. V.P. Ananikov in July 2015. Prof. V.P. Ananikov said:“3D printing opens up unprecedented opportunities for chemists”. The printer will be used in a breakthrough project on creation of high performance chemical reactors and microreactor systems.
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.
