Boreskov readings

Boreskov Institute of Сatalysis, in conjunction with the Novosibirsk State University will held the IV Conference Boreskov readings (with international participation). The conference will be held in the year of the 110 anniversary from the birthday of academician Georgii Konstantinovich Boreskov in Akademgorodok, Novosibirsk, 19-21 April 2017.

The three-day program of the Conference will consist of 4 plenary and 12 keynote invited lectures, 26 oral presentations (20 min), 10 oral presentations (10 min) and 100 posters. The oral presentations are scheduled in the following sessions:

1. Formation of active catalyst state under reaction conditions
2. Surface oxygen species: local structure, electronic state, and reactivity
3. Structural sensitivity, size effects, and single atom catalysis
4. Mechanism of oxidative reactions
5. From reaction kinetics to industrial innovation processes

The Conference will be accompanied by the School-Symposium of young scientists “In situ and operando studies of the catalytic reactions”and The Round-table «Boreskov’s ideas and time».

Academician Georgii Konstantinovich Boreskov (1907-1984) is an outstanding scientist-chemist, engineer and organizer of science, a talented teacher. The work of academician in the field of catalysis, chemical kinetics and chemical technology has received worldwide recognition. G. K. Boreskov, the founder of the Institute of catalysis and its Director, since opening and until 1984. In 1992 the Institute of catalysis named after Georgii Konstantinovich Boreskov.
