Laboratory of Carbocyclic Compounds (N10)

Head: Yuri N. Bubnov, Full Member of RAS (e-mail: borioc.ac.ru, tel. +7(499)137-7319)

The laboratory was established in 1936 by Prof. M. A. Il'inskii, Hon. Memb. Acad. Sc., as Laboratory of Intermediates and Dyes (1936-1939). It was headed by Full Member of the Academy A.E. Porai-Koshits (1939-1949) and I.V. Obreimov (1949-1954). Prof. B.M. Mikhailov, Associated Member of Acad. Sc., headed it in 1954-1984 and exactly at that time Laboratory received its present name and specialization.

Research areas

Chemistry of organoboron compounds, their reactivity, and applications in the multi-purpose organic synthesis.

 Design of novel boron structures: unsaturated, cyclic and cage compounds.

 Development of "boron" methods of the organic synthesis.

 Synthesis of natural products and their analogs via organoboranes.

 Sigmatropic rearrangements of organoboranes, including borotropy.

Main results

Allylborated organic compounds with multiple bonds, allylboron-acetylene condensation, reductive mono- and trans-a,a'-diallylation of nitrogen heterocycles by allyl boranes, and a permanent allyl rearrangement in allylboranes were discovered.

 Using organoboranes, total syntheses of muscarin, ernanducin, (+)- and (-) CABOB, ipsenol, ipsidienol, dihydropinidine, epihydropinidine, indolisidins 1676B and 209D, pseudoheliotridane, remantadin, and derivatives of 1-boron- and 1-azaadamantane were performed.

Important events:

Professor Mario Pargliaro Lecturing at Zelinsky Institute Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
Selective In-Situ Metal Azide Reactions 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.
On February 1st, Prof. Gleb Sukhorukov from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, gave a lecture “Remote Controlled Delivery Nanosystems” at ZIOC.
“We can record up to one thousand spectra per day” Director of Zelinsky Institute about Devising New Molecules
Steep and Thorny Way of a Scientist in Russia 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.
