29 June– 3 July 2009
Conferences on chemical thermodynamics have been held in Russia on a consistent basis (with one exception) since 1961. Before 1977, they were called “All-Union conferences on calorimetry.” Between 1979 and 1991 the title was changed to “All-Union conference on calorimetry and chemical thermodynamics.” The 17th conference in this series, now called the International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics in Russia, will be held 29 June–3 July 2009 in Kazan, Russia.
The conferences typically attract up to 400 leading experts in various areas of chemical thermodynamics, including around 150 foreign scientists. The meetings are traditionally held at leading Russian scientific centers.
The choice of Kazan for the 17th conference is not casual. It is a large educational, scientific, and petrochemical center, located at the intersection of Europe and Asia. Kazan is home to a world-famous chemistry school that has produced such luminaries as K.K. Klaus, N.N. Zinin, A.M. Butlerov, V.V. Markovnikov, A.M. Zajtsev, F.M. Flavitsky, A.E. Arbuzov, and B.A. Arbuzov.
The chief organizer of the forthcoming conference is the Kazan state technological university. The conference will investigate the following themes:
- technologies of petrochemical manufacturing
- technologies of synthetic rubber
- technologies of electrochemical processes
- technologies of organic and inorganic polymers
- mathematical modeling of chemical technology processes
- heat exchange and mass transfer
- chemistry of hetero-organic compounds
- theoretical chemistry
- special chemistry
