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.
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.
Recently, a general protocol for the conversion of readily available ketones into their difluorohomologues was described by Alexander Dilman and his co-workers from Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry (Moscow, Russian Federation).
The Russian Academy of Sciences, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Federal Agency for Science and Education, Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS, and Postovsky Institute or Organic Synthesis RAS organized the 4th Russian National Conference in Organic Chemistry dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nikolay Kochetkov, an outstanding organic chemist. It was held at ZIOC RAS on November 22-27.
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.
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.
