Fourth International Conference of CIS Countries “Sol-gel synthesis and study of inorganic compounds, hybrid functional materials, and disperse systems”, „Sol-gel 2016“, September 19-23, 2016, Yerevan, Armenia

National Academy of Siences

The National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia (NAS RA) (Armenian: Հայաստանի Հանրապետության գիտությունների ազգային ակադեմիա, ՀՀ ԳԱԱ) is the primary body that conducts research and coordinates activities in the fields of science and social sciences in Armenia. The academy was founded on November 10, 1943 on the basis of the Armenian Branch of the Soviet Academy of Sciences, which was established almost 10 years earlier, in 1935. Among its founders were Joseph OrbeliStepan Malkhasyants

Ivan Gevorkian and Victor Ambartsumian; Orbeli became the first president of the academy.

Division of Chemistry and Earth Sciences; Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry

Main Fields of Activity

The development of technologies for the complex processing of non-metallic raw materials; complex retreatment of high-melting, multicomponent metallic ores and industrial wastes; the production of nanosize, nanocomposite, superhard, superpurity, glassy, vitrocrystalline, high-temperature complex biologically active materials, the synthesis of novel materials having functional signification.

The Institute successfully collaborates with scientific organizations and centers of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia by participating in joint projects, investigations and developments. The researchers take an active part in international scientific conferences, symposiums and congresses. The international conferences of «Chemistry and Chemical Technology» are periodically organized and held by the Institute
