Master-class «New level of x-ray diffraction studies. Opportunities and prospects»
The masterclass is designed for students and scientists who possess basic crystallographic knowledge and who would like to acquire practical skills for refining crystal structures based on single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Both novice and experienced users will benefit from the course and will enhance their knowledge of mathematical foundations of diffraction principles, computer software, and crystal structure determination. The course will cover the concepts of crystallographic analysis including point/space group symmetry, the use of reciprocal lattice to understand diffraction by crystals, and crystallographic experiment design.
Kletskov Alexey «Mixed 1,2-azole heterocycles in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis in aqueous media»
As a result of joint researches, methods for the synthesis of mixed heterocyclic ligands containing heterocycles completely different in electronic properties (for example, 1,2-azole-1,2,3-triazole, 1,2-azole-pyridine, 1,2-azole-pyrimidine) and their complexes with palladium and nickel were obtained. Palladium isoxazole-1,2,3-triazole complexes are such active catalysts for cross-coupling and reduction reactions in aqueous media that they can be used in trace amounts (1–10 ppm). For the first time, a promising and very active in catalysis of cross-coupling and reduction reactions hybrid bimetallic material based on Pd-Ni-B-L doped with palladium and modified with azole ligands [L - isoxazole-1,2,3-triazole(pyrimide) ligands] was developed.
