From the Barents to the Sea of Azov: participants at the 3MUGIS RUDN Summer School study the landscapes and soils of Russia

July 27 - August 10, the III field international summer school «Anthropogenic and natural landscapes and soils of European Russia: from sea to sea» was held by RUDN University in conjunction with scientific and educational organizations of Russia, Germany and the USA. This year, 50 participants represented Russia, Germany, Italy, China, the USA, Chile and France for 2 weeks crossed the entire European part of Russia from the Barents Sea to the Sea of Azov, to study the zonal diversity of soils and landscapes and evaluate the results of anthropogenic impact on the ecosystem.

About partner:
The Institute of Organoelement Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences was established in 1954. The outstanding scientist Alexander Nikolayevich Nesmeyanov (1899-1980), who served as the president of the USSR Academy of Sciences, made a great contribution to its creation as he created the newest organoelement chemistry as an independent scientific discipline linking organic and inorganic chemistry. A.N.Nesmeyanov has headed the Institute for 26 years.

About partner:
University of Montpellier (University de Montpellier) is one of the oldest public institutions of higher education in France and bears the name of the city where it is located. The university has its representative offices and branches in other cities of Hérault and Gar departments. In addition, its educational structure is divided into 3 independent universities: Montpellier I, Montpellier II and Montpellier III. This French educational institution is popular among international students due to the qualitative provision of knowledge, prestige of their diplomas, and free tuition (medical and scientific faculties are the most popular and prestigious).

About partner:
The University was first established in 1893 as an education institution in New Mexico. The first president was the famous archaeologist Edgar Lee Hewatt. In 1902, the institute was transformed into the New Mexico Pedagogical University and later to the New Mexico Highlands University in 1941 as a result of its expanding role beyond pedagogical education. Today the University offers graduate and master’s programs in arts, science, business, education, and social work.

Efimov Ilia «Synthesis of new BODIPY compounds based on 1,2,4-oxadiazolyl-1H-pyrroles»
The new BODIPY compounds were synthesized based on 1,2,4-oxadiazolyl-1H-pyrroles. The strategy for this new BODIPY was used as reaction azolylenamines with isocyanides followed by next condensation with aldehydes with presence of TEA. These new BODIPY compounds will be tested by cyclic voltammetry for potential application in organic electronics.

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.
