P.P. Shorygin lectures and awards

P.P. SHORYGIN SCIENTIFIC LECTURES
Since March 2004, the Russian Chitin Society (RCS) holds annual scientific lectures in honor of the prominent Russian organic chemist Pavel P. Shorygin.

Academician Pavel P. Shorygin (1881-1939) became known for his pioneering studies of modifications of chitin. Pavel Shorygin is an outstanding organic chemist, who discovered the methylation reaction and new types of intramolecular rearrangements (carbinol and phenol) that were named after him. His research on carbohydrate chemistry culminated in the discovery of the little-known polysaccharide – chitin. The results of research works on acetylation, nitration and methylation reactions of chitin, which have been well-known for cellulose, were published in 1934-1935.

 

P.P. SHORYGIN AWARDS
In 2004, noting the active participation of Russian young scientists in research, the Board of Russian Chitin Society (RCS) decided to award an annual science prize to young chitinologists. The award named in honor of the prominent Russian scientist and founder of chitin investigations – P.P. Shorygin – is given for the best research in the field of chitin and chitosan.

The list of nominees is published on the RCS web-site.
