Scientific Grounds

Qualitative and quantitative measurement techniques in a complex of physical and chemical determinations of structural and functional characteristics developed in ZIOC RAS form a basis of analytic measurements. These studies have been conducted over 10 years in the laboratory headed by Associate Member of RAS V.P. Ananikov. The research results have been highly appreciated internationally and published in professional journals with a high impact factor.

Company Acrus is the local market leader in chemical and biological products supply to research centers, industries and universities. It has 12-year experience in integrated support of research projects, including by direct supplies from key manufacturers of laboratory equipment, reagents and consumables.

ZIOC-Acrus is a small innovative business set up in a partnership between ZIOC RAS and company Acrus with a view to bring results of Russian scientists’ intellectual activity to practice.

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.
