Alexander Terentiev Took Part in Round-Table Discussion “What a Small Innovative Enterprise Needs: Russian Experience”

Different innovations – different needs

Indeed, different technologies and innovative products have different users and needs. To a large extent, demands of a business are determined by the production stage specifics. As pinpointed by DSc Alexander Terentiev, a leading researcher of N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS, “today winning are knowledge-intensive businesses that create high value-added products but “in small quantities””.

“We make prodrugs for western companies; they need some milligrams of the substance. In my field – in the organic synthesis, biological and pharmaceutical chemistry, and similar areas, this ensures not only survival but also good earnings” – said Dr. Terentiev and added that “Now it is a right time to fabricate high value-added products with low material costs”.

Important events:

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.
Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
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.
