EuropaCat XII in Kazan

EuropaCat, the leading European catalytic event, was held from 30th August to 4th September, 2015, in Kazan (Russia). The Congress is a focal point for scientists engaged in innovative catalysis. It serves as a platform for sharing new ideas and discussing the advances in all areas of catalysis. The theme of EuropaCat XII was “Catalysis: Balanced Use of Mineral and Renewable Resources”.

The key EuropaCat program subjects were:

1. Novel catalytic materials and processes for securing raw material supplies
2. Catalyst preparation and characterization
3. Energy-related catalysis
4. Catalysis and chemicals
5. Catalysis and environmental protection

The Congress brought together more than 800 scientists and experts delegated by R&D centers, educational establishments and industries from 44 countries. Among them were 400 participants from Russia, 68 from Germany, 34 from Spain, 31 from France, etc. 8 plenary and 23 keynote lectures were delivered to the audience during 6 days.

Russia was represented by Prof. Valentine P. Ananikov, RAS Associate Member, from ZIOC RAS. He gave a plenary lecture “Catalysis in Organic Chemistry. From Butlerov to Nowadays”.

Congratulations! Valentine Ananikov has been elected to Academia Europaea! The European Academy of Sciences (Academia Europaea) was founded in 1988. It unites about four thousand globally acknowledged experts in mathematics, medicine, natural sciences, humanities, law, economy, and social and political sciences from many countries of Europe. Among its members are also European scientists who live in other regions of the world. Currently, it includes seventy two Nobel laureates and it should be highlighted that many of them were elected to the Academy before winning the Prize.
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.
