Siberian chemist received the European Academy Award for the conversions of methane

Anton Gabrienko, a researcher at the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have received the award for Young Russian Scientists (young meaning those of up to 34 years old) in the «Chemistry» category of the Russian Club of the European Academy (Academia Europaea). The award was given for his work on zeolites — modified metals, which can be used to convert methane to more complex organic compounds, «Science in Siberia» reports.

Gabrienko received the award for the study named «Mechanisms of activation and conversion of methane with metal-modified zeolites ZSM-5 and BEA». As Anton Gabrienko himself noted, the use of such zeolites can significantly increase the depth of processing of natural and associated petroleum gases, the main component of which is methane. It is much cheaper than other types of raw materials suitable for organic synthesis, and valuable products such as methanol, carboxylic acids, and aromatic hydrocarbons can be obtained from it.

The European Academy is a public non-governmental organisation which unites the leading scientists from European countries. It was established in 1988 and it includes sections dedicated to every major natural and humanitarian science.
