ORGANIC chemistry research, CHEMICAL synthesis, METAL complexes, CATALYSIS, CHEMISTS, and SCIENTISTS
The article comments on the article "The Reasons Organic Chemistry is Needed for in a Well Developed Country," by I.P. Beletskaya and V.P. Ananikov, published in this journal. It discusses need for a strong effort to get positive results in the fields of Russian chemistry, organic synthesis, and metal complex catalysis; need for the development of new methods and reactions for the formation of desired materials; and role of young researchers in the development of organic chemistry in Russia.
