Boreskov Institute of Catalysis was founded in 1958 as a part of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The founder and the first Director of the Institute till 1984 was academician Georgii Konstantinovich Boreskov.
One of the main activity areas of the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis is fundamental investigations in catalytic science to discover new principles of chemical reactions and to create innovative catalytic compositions and technologies.
Boreskov Institute of Catalysis places high emphasis to training of young scientists. On the basis of Institute a lot of students and PhD students are doing scientific practical works.

Carbon has been widely used in industry as adsorbents and catalyst supports. The discovery of carbon nanofibers and nanotubes aroused a surge of research interests all over the world. The recent successful exfoliation of graphene, the basic element of carbon allotropes, has triggered another research surge and undergone fast development. This meeting will cover both fundamentals and practical applications of carbon materials for catalysis. More specifically, the following 5 topics will be included but not limited. It is expected to provide you with a comprehensive knowledge about leading-edge developments in this field.
