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.

After Dresden, Moscow, Ottawa, Foz do Iguagu and Durban, the IUPAC Green Chemistry Conference will move to Italy . . . to Venice. We believe that the perception that Society has of the role of chemistry is being elevated by these IUPAC Conferences, and that chemists deserve to be perceived as people who create a dialogue with politicians, economists, entrepreneurs, and opinion formers. Green chemists map the way to a sustainable future, and foster the development of industrially significant, and economic, breakthrough technologies.
Held every two years, the IUPAC Green Chemistry Conferences gather large number of scientists, technologists and experts from all over the world interested in disseminating and exchanging new ideas on sustainable development and green chemical technologies, owing to the unique role they play in mapping the way ahead for the humankind progress.
The Conference consists of five areas of interest and the topics of the program are:
Innovative materials for sustainable construction and cultural heritage
Polymers and polymer composites
Biocatalysis and biotransformation
Bio-based renewable, chemical feedstocks
Energy storage to facilitate uptake of renewable energy sources
Chemistry for improved energy harvesting
Microwave, ultrasound and flow chemistry technology
Separations and analysis
Green metrics and Greenness evaluation
Green Chemistry education
How to influence policy to drive acceptance of Greener Technologies?
Climate Change Mitigation
