By Acad. Valentin PARMON, Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (director), president of the Joint Scientific Council on Chemical Sciences, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS) The West-Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences founded in 1943 had four research centers (institutes) under its wing, the Chemical and Metallurgical Institute among them.

All told SB RAS employs 3,300 chemists and people of related specialities, with 1,360 research s ... Read more
