President of the Association of Indian Diplomats Visited Zelinsky Institute

President of the Association of Indian Diplomats Visited Zelinsky Institute

On June 29th 2016, Mr. Bhaskar Balakrishnan, a renowned Indian diplomat and statesman, the President of the Association of Indian Diplomats (an association of former Indian ambassadors) visited Zelinsky Institute. Mr. Bhaskar Balakrishnan holds a university degree in physics, which was one of the reasons why the Indian Government delegated him to visit Russia with a view to get an insight into the current trends of Russian governmental policy in the field of science, technology and education.

The meeting in ZIOC was organized by Prof. Nikolay Nifant’ev. The venue was not selected randomly – ZIOC RAS has longstanding scientific relations with Indian academic community. Also, Prof. Dr. N. Nifant’ev is the head of the RAS Comprehensive Long-Term Program for Cooperation with India.



In the course of the conversation, the Indian guest expressed a particular interest to the Russian governmental policy in support of science and technology and was greatly impressed by the system of continuous chemical education at ZIOC RAS.

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.
