IYCr 2014


The International Union of Crystallography recognizes the dedicated work of Professor Elena Boldyreva

(Institute of Solid State Chemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia)

who served as a member of the Executive Committee during the period 2008–2014.

This citation is an acknowledgement of exceptional service and dedication in carrying out this important work. The officers of the Union wish to express their sincere thanks for an outstanding contribution that has benefited the crystallographic community and science as a whole.



The workshop entitled “Molecular materials: from fundamentals to applications” was focus on various aspects of research into molecular materials ranging from fundamentals to applications. The following topics were covered:

(1) Polymorphism in Molecular Materials – control, prediction, and implications for applications.
(2) Crystallisation of molecular materials under ambient and non-ambient conditions
(3) In situ studies of molecular crystals and molecular materials – diffraction, vibrational spectroscopy, lattice dynamics
(4) Solid-state chemical reactions of molecular materials – mechanochemistry

In 2013 the British Council has launched a new five-year programme to encourage international research collaboration between ambitious young researchers from the UK and nineteen countries around the world. In 2014 the British Council in Russia is partnering with the Royal Society of Chemistry to organise and deliver a chemistry-themed jointly funded Researcher Links workshop which will provide opportunities for 40 early career researchers from the UK and Russia to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

The workshop provided a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops early career researchers presented their research in the form of a short oral (or poster) presentation and discussed this with established researchers from the UK and Russia. There were a focus on building up links for future collaborations and participants were selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term links.


For UK: Prof Colin Pulham, Professor of High-Pressure Chemistry, The University of Edinburgh
For Russia: Prof Elena Boldyreva, Head of Chair of Solid State Chemistry, Novosibirsk State University
