ISPM RAS — Enikolopov Institute of Synthetic Polymeric Materials

Enikolopov Institute of Synthetic Polymeric Materials

Russian Academy of Sciences

The Institute of Synthetic Polymeric Materials (ISPM) was founded in 1981 by Academician N.S. Enikolopov as part of a Branch of Basic and Technical Chemistry at the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. Today it is one of the leading research centers in chemistry and physics of polymers.


Plastics industry launches waste initiative
Plastic waste In what is being billed as the largest-ever effort of its kind, 28 companies have formed the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, which plans to invest up to $1.5 billion over the next five years on projects to keep plastic trash out of the ocean.

The alliance includes some of the world’s largest chemical companies, including BASF, Dow Chemical, and LyondellBasell Industries, as well as consumer product giants like Procter & Gamble and Henkel. But critics say the industry should have acted on plastic waste sooner and that this effort by itself won’t solve the problem.

The initiative launched with a sleek video presentation viewed on the web by more than 500,000 people its first day. Full text see here.

Collaboration with South Korean scientists
KIMM forum On Wednedsay, 28 November 2018, a delegation of Korean Institute of Mashinery and Marerials (KIMM), headed by its vice-president Dr. Kern-Yong Kang, visited ISPM RAS.

In the framework of the meeting a Collaborative Forum took place, where representatives of KIMM presented main directions of the institution scientific activity, in particular in the field of mashinery for roll-to-roll and printed electronics.

Researchers of the Laboratory of Functional Materials for Organic Electronics and Photonics of ISPM RAS presented their recent scientific reasults in the field of organic electronics. As a result of the meeting it was desided to prepare a Collaborative Research Agreement and to look for possible funding sources for collaborative research in the field of organic and printed electronics.
