Five Russians Named among the World’s Best Young Chemists

Five Russians Named among the World’s Best Young Chemists

Five Russian scientists have been named among the world’s best young chemists. This list of 118 outstanding science representatives was made by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the International Young Chemists Network (IYCN).

The rating looks like the Periodic Table. The unusual chemical matrix depicts not only names, but also the "diversity of careers, creativity, and dedication of the young chemists leading us into the next century", reports tvbrics.com correspondent with the reference to TASS.

The 44th position of the "table" is occupied by professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the head of Dmitry Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia Alexander Mazhuga. The 38-year-old scientist is one of the youngest rectors in Russia. His research interests include bioorganic and medical chemistry, nanochemistry, new approaches to synthesis, and research of biologically active agents.
