From January 18-21, 2015 Chemistry was held in Krasnovidovo, a recreation center of Moscow State University. The conference was organized by the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University (Chairman of the Organizing Committee – Prof. V.G. Nenaidenko, Deputy Chairman of the Organizing Committee – Prof. S.Z. Vatsadze).
On November 13, 2014, N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS, the largest scientific center in organic chemistry, physical organic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry and organic catalysis, alma mater of many globally recognized outstanding Russian chemists who glorified science and our country, celebrated its 80th anniversary.
Prof. Roald Hoffmann, a Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry, visited ZIOC RAS on August 26, 2014. Prof. Hoffmann often comes to Russia to give lectures on modern chemistry. He is a welcome guest in ZIOC. During his visit Prof. Roald Hoffmann had a meeting with Full Members of RAS M.P. Egorov and O.M. Nefedov and Associate Members of RAS N.P. Tarasova and V.P. Ananikov.
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.
