Fundamental organic chemistry

Why a Developed Country Cannot Live without Organic Chemistry

I.P. Beletskaya and V.P. Ananikov, Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2015, v. 51, extract 2, p. 159 - 161.






Modern Organic Synthesis

Organic chemistry is an area of modern science, which is in highest demand today as it helps improve the quality of human life and health and design new generations of medications, including those for the prevention and treatment of socially significant diseases. Most of current industrial processes are associated with the synthesis and processing of organic substances. These are organic molecules that are and will be a key pillar of the fuel and energy sector (hydrocarbons refining) and top priorities in the short-term development of chemical industry.

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.
