Alexis T. Bell, BIC Honorary Professor, delivered a lecture at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis

15 July 2019

On June 4, 2019, one of the world's leading scientists in catalysis, Alexis T. Bell (University of California, Berkeley, USA) gave a lecture on Understanding the Relationships between Catalytic Composition/Structure and Activity/Selectivity at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis within the framework of the problematic seminar.

The participation of A. Bell in the problematic seminar sparked great interest of the audience: the conference hall was full. According to the speaker, his collaboration with Boreskov Institute of Catalysis began in 1974, when the Institute was headed by its founder, Academician Georgii Boreskov. On his first visit to the Institute of Catalysis, the scientist gave his very first lecture in Russian. Since then, Alexis T. Bell has visited the Institute many times.

At the beginning of the event, A. Bell received the diploma of Honorary Professor of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis. The scientist was awarded this title in 2018. The diploma and the medal were presented to A. Bell by the Director of the Institute Academician Valerii Bukhtiyarov, and the lapel badge, by the Scientific Adviser of the Institute Academician Valentin Parmon.

The title "Honorary Professor Of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis " was introduced in 2018 by the decision of the Academic Council for the foreign citizens who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of scientific relations between BIC and major foreign universities, research institutes and companies, conducting research and development in the field of catalysis and related disciplines, contributing to the improvement of the international rating of the Institute and supporting it regardless of the international political situation.

Besides Alexis T. Bell, BIC Honorary Professors are Claude Mirodatos from the IRCELYON Institute (Institute de recherches sur la catalyse et l'environnement de Lyon, Lyon, France), Gilbert F. Froment from Ghent University (Belgium) and Robert Schlögl from the Fritz Haber Institute (Max Planck Society, Germany).

A. Bell received his bachelor's (1964) and master's degrees (1967) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). Currently, Professor Alexis Bell holds the positions of Professor of chemical engineering at the University of California (Berkeley) and of senior researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National laboratory (California, USA).

Professor Bell’s scientific interests include the studying of the fundamental relationships between the structure and composition of heterogeneous catalysts and their catalytic properties in alkenes dehydrogenation reactions, the electrochemical conversion of methane to methanol, the electrochemical reduction of CO2 and a number of other processes.

Alexis Bell's research activities have been recognized with numerous national and international awards, including the Paul Emmett prize in fundamental catalysis, the American Catalytic Society award for creative research in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis; Dr. Professor Bell is a member of the National Academy of Engineering (1987), the elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2007). In 2001 he was awarded the title of Honorary Professor of the Siberian Branch of RAS.
