The research-engineer of our laboratory Shaferov Alexander successfully defended his thesis for the degree of Candidate of Chemical Sciences on the topic "Synthesis of new high-energy and pharmacologically oriented compounds containing 1,2,5-oxadiazole cycle".The team of our laboratory wishes Alexander not to stop on his way and conquer new horizons in the future!
School-conference "Molecular design of biologically active substances: Biochemical and medical aspects"
From September 18 to 22, our team, consisting of student Alexander Shuvaev, researcher Alexander Larin and head of the laboratory Leonid Fershtat, participated in Kazan in the school-conference "Molecular design of biologically active substances: Biochemical and medical aspects" (MDBAS-2023).
Alexander Shuvaev presented a report on the topic “Development of a universal electrochemical method for the synthesis of derivatives of 2-H-1,2,3-triazole”
Alexander Larin presented a report on the topic “NO-donor pharmacologically oriented derivatives based on furoxan: synthesis and properties”
Leonid Fershtat, as an invited speaker, presented a report on the topic “Methods of assembling new hybrid heterocyclic NO donors".
The intense program of the conference included a wide range of relevant fundamental and applied topics in organic, bioorganic medical chemistry and pharmacology. Excellent and interesting reports captured the attention of all the guests. This conference is an excellent platform for discussing and developing new scientific projects.
Truly green chemistry "Direct access to the previously ignored 1,2,3-triazole-1-oxides"
Truly green chemistry has enlightened our head of electrochemistry, namely, to create a strategy for electrochemical reactions of the formation of N–N bonds: direct access to the previously ignored 1,2,3-triazole-1-oxides. An interesting and very strong work of our scientific group, where the headliners were students Ksenia Titenkova, Alexander Shuvaev, who tirelessly staged an infinite number of experiments and Fedor Teslenko, who successfully accompanied everything and connected all synthetic patterns with calculated ones. Bravo! Welcome to organic electrochemistry, an article in the journal Green Chemistry as a highlight on the cake.

Congratulation with membering in journal "Defence Technology"
Alexander Larin, PhD and an senior researcher of the Laboratory of Nitrogen Compounds of the ZIOC RAS became a member of the "Early career" editorial board of the prestigious international journal "Defense Technology". The journal covers various disciplines of science and technology, including high-energy materials.The staff of our laboratory congratulates Alexander and wishes him fruitful work and further success in a new direction.
New vertex "Linear furoxan assemblies incorporating nitrobifuroxan scaffold"
An excellent article by our scientific team, which is devoted to a series of new high-energy structures representing a sequence of bifuroxans enriched with explosophoric nitro- and azo groups. The synthesized compounds combine the necessary physicochemical properties and excellent energetic characteristics. They have high densities, acceptable thermal stability, high enthalpy of formation and a positive oxygen balance by CO. Due to such an advantageous set of properties, the synthesized high-energy substances have high detonation velocities, excellent explosion heats and combustion parameters. The results provide a great potential for the use of the synthesized structures based on furoxans as high-energy materials of a new generation. Lets go, colleagues, to new heights!

Plenary lection on"Markovnikov Readings: Organic Chemistry from Markovnikov to the Present day"
From June 1 to June 6, the All-Russian conference "Markovnikov Readings: Organic Chemistry from Markovnikov to the Present day" was held in Dombai village of Karachay-Cherkessia, to which leading scientists conducting research in topical areas of organic chemistry are invited annually as plenary speakers. This event is a convenient platform for young scientists to present the results of their research in the field of organic chemistry. The participants presented reports based on publications for 2021-2022.One of such speakers was the head of our laboratory of nitrogen compounds, Doctor of Chemical Sciences Leonid Fershtat, who presented a lecture on the topic "Polyheteroatomic heterocyclic systems: new synthetic possibilities and development prospects". The lecture aroused great interest among the audience and turned into an exciting discussion with the participants of the conference.
The X Youth Conference of the Zelinskiy Institute of organic chemistry
Our scientific group took part in the X Youth Conference held at the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The conference was brightand included plenary, key, oral and poster presentations by the best scientists from all over Russia and CIS countries. The conference was productive, including for our scientific group, which was represented by two oral reports. Sergey Arakelov - a student of the HSE and Irina Stebletsova, a student of the Higher chemical college of the Russian Academy of Sciences. As a result, Irina Stebletsova was awarded a diploma of the first degree for the best oral presentation. Congratulations to the young scientist and we wish you not to stop there!
"Chemistry and Chemical Technology in the XXI century"
From May 15 to May 19, 2023, Tomsk Polytechnic University (Tomsk) hosted the XXIV International Scientific and Practical Conference of Students and Young Scientists "Chemistry and Chemical Technology in the XXI century. Our laboratory was represented by young scientists: students, postgraduates and PhD students together with L.L. Fershtat.The scientific program of the conference was presented by a wide range of fields of chemistry and chemical technology and it is worth noting the high organization of the conference, which is the undoubted merit of the staff of Tomsk Polytechnic University.According to the results of the work of the subsection "Chemistry and chemical technology of organic substances and materials", the report of a young scientist Daniil Degtyarev on the topic : "A new family of high-energy polynitrogen structures based on 1,2,4-triazole" of the Institute of Organic Chemistry was awarded a diploma of the I degree. We congratulate the young scientist on his victory and wish him further success in his work!
"High-energy materials: new approaches to creation and application"

Happy New 2023 Year!
Congratulations to everyone on the upcoming New Year 2023! The coming year promises to be very productive and responsible for all of us. Therefore, do not slow down, do not give in to discouragement, let this year bring more positive and good to all of us. 2022 was both a busy and challenging year. In total, 39 articles were published in our laboratory, including reviews and book chapters. The laboratory was replenished with three new candidates of chemical sciences at once. We all actively participated in Russian and international conferences, and also helped to hold conferences on the basis of the ZIOC RAS.We still have a lot of things to do together! Happy New Year!
