Laboratory of Catalysis of Rare and Trace Elements (N20)

Head: Prof. Nikolai Ya. Usachev (e-mail: nyioc.ac.ru. tel. +7 (499) 137-6352)

The laboratory was established in 1963 and was headed by Full Member of RAS Kh.M. Minachev until 1990.

Research areas and main results

The use of zeolites and metal-zeolite systems in the catalysis (selective oxidation and oxidative acetoxylation of lower olefins and alcohols into carbonyl compounds and esters, hydrogenation and isomerization of hydrocarbons, and other reactions).

Development and investigation of new oxide catalysts for the preparation of synthesis gas, olefins, high-purity hydrogen, and other valuable products from hydrocarbon components of natural gas.

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.
