ZIOC RAS is among the World's Top Research Institutions (WRIR-2014)

ZIOC RAS is among the World's Top Research Institutions (WRIR-2014)

The European Scientific-Industrial Chamber has published annual results of the World Research Institutions Ranking (WRIR-2014).

In 2014, nearly 15,400 world science and research institutions split to 10 categories according to the specialization participated in WRIR-2014. In particular, WRIR-2014 included evaluation of institution activities in chemistry, computational and applied mathematics, biology and agriculture, physics, Earth science, materials science, medicine, social and engineering sciences (including chemical engineering).

The evaluation of research quality was done by three levels: level A (from A to AAA) that corresponds to “high quality research performance”, level B (from B to BBB+) – “good quality research performance”, and level C (from C to CCC +) – “quality research performance”.  WRIR included only institutions that met international standards of research quality (Levels C to A).

N.D. ZelinskyInstitute of Organic Chemistry RAS received the BBB+ ranking (“good quality research performance”) in the category Chemical Sciences. Noteworthy is that ZIOC RAS ranked second among Russian chemical institutes.

Russian institutes ranked by WRIR-2014

In total the category “Chemical Sciences” encompassed 538 research institutions. A complete list of the WRIR ranking in Chemical Sciences is available here.

Important events:

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.
