Georgiy B. Shul'pin

Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia


Georgiy B. Shul’pin graduated from the Chemistry Department, Moscow State University, Russia. He was a postgraduate student at the Institute of Organoelement Compounds, Academy of Sciences of the USSR, Moscow, Russia, under the supervision of Professor A. N. Nesmeyanov and received his Ph. D. degree in organometallic chemistry in 1975. Since 1978, Shul’pin has been working at Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia, and is currently a Leading Scientific Researcher. His research activities concern metal complex catalysis, functionalization of C–H bonds, oxidation of hydrocarbons, and organometallic chemistry. Other interests include photocatalysis, biomimetic oxidations, and ecological chemistry. Shul’pin discovered new systems for the efficient oxidations of hydrocarbons, including methane, by systems based on complexes of vanadium, osmium, iron, and manganese. He holds patents of Europe, USA, and other countries. He published about 250 papers in chemical journals resulting in more than 5,000 citations as well as a few books and chapters, such as Activation and Catalytic Reactions of Saturated Hydrocarbons in the Presence of Metal Complexes and a chapter titled Selectivity in C–H Functionalizations in Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II. He visited lectures and worked as a Visiting Scientist in Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, UK, and USA. Shul’pin is a foreign Member of the Academy of Sciences of Lisbon, Portugal, and a Member of Editorial Boards of several journals such as Catalysis Communications, Advances in Chemical Engineering and Science, Catalysts, The Scientific World Journal, and Journal of Engineering.
