General and Applied Chemistry
25–30 September 2011, Volgograd, Russia
In the spirit of the International Year of Chemistry, the XIX Mendeleev Congress will provide an excellent opportunity to showcase international cooperation of scientists and their professional unions. The Mendeleev Congresses are usually conducted every four to five years in world-famous scientific and cultural centers of our country. The First Mendeleev Congress was held in Saint-Petersburg in 1907 in commemoration of the great Russian scholar D.I. Mendeleev (1834–1907).
Volgograd, Russia, was selected as the home city for the 2011 Congress, to be held 25–30 September. This is a city with a glorious history and one of the largest centers of chemical industry in Russia. Companies in the region include LUKOIL, EuroChem Mineral and Chemical Company, NIKOCHEM, RUSAL, and Sibur holdings, as well as the chemical giants Volzhsky Orgsynthez and Chimprom Volgograd.
Traditionally, the scientific program of the Mendeleev Congresses covers the main areas of chemical science, technology, industry, and chemical education. These issues are discussed in plenary and oral sessions, satellite symposia, and roundtable discussions. The program includes exhibitions of chemical facilities, equipment, technological developments, and chemistry literature.
Leading Russian and foreign scientists, including Nobel Prize winners, will present plenary lectures. Russian and foreign companies dealing with the production of chemicals and materials will present their activities.
