Engineering of Heterogeneous Catalytic Processes

On March 29, Associate Professor, Dr. Vladilen A. Makhlin, affiliated with Karpov R&D Center and Lomonosov Moscow University of Fine Chemical Technologies, gave a talk “Engineering of Heterogeneous Catalytic Processes” at Zelinsky Institute. Dr. Makhlin is a well-known expert in mathematical modeling, computation and heterogeneous catalysis applications in basic organic and petrochemical synthesis. 

It was the seventh lecture within the educational course in the heterogeneous catalysis organized by ZIOC RAS, Haldor Topsoe A/S (Denmark) and the Russian Catalytic Society.

The lecture discussed some aspects of modeling of homogenous flow reactors, heat and mass exchange industrial reactors, their classification, and principal strategies for industrial process design. , Dr. Makhlin gave particular examples of modeling of a methane oxidative condensation reactor and optimization of an industrial process of isobutene dehydrogenation over a chromium alumina catalyst.    

The presenter provided the attendees with a list of latest publications useful both for PhD students and for undergraduates.

The lecture aroused a great deal of interest and a lively discussion. The next talk of the series has been scheduled for April 12 2017.

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.
