Catalysis plays a vital role in chemical, petroleum, agriculture, polymer, electronics, pharmaceutical, and other industries. Over 90 percent of chemicals originate from catalytic processes. Toughening economic and environmental constraints have proven to be a challenge for meeting the demand of novel efficient and sustainable regio- and stereosele

About the Author

Konstantin P. Bryliakovwas born in Yoshkar-Ola (USSR) in 1977 and graduated from Novosibirsk State University in 1999. He earned a Cand. Chem. Sci. (PhD) in chemical physics from the Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion (Novosibirsk) in 2001 under the direction of Professor E. P. Talsi. In 2008, Dr. Bryliakov was awarded a Dr. Chem. Sci. in catalysis from the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (Novosibirsk). Dr. Bryliakov is a leading research scientist at the Boreskov Institute. He has co-authored more than 90 papers, book chapters, and patents. His research interests include transition metal-catalyzed asymmetric oxidations, single-site olefin polymerizations, and mechanistic aspects of those transformations.
