Aleksandr Porfir’evich Borodin: A Chemist’s Biography by N. A. Figurovskii, Yu. I. Solov’ev (auth.)

By N. A. Figurovskii, Yu. I. Solov’ev (auth.)

A complete century has handed because the unexpected and tragically untimely dying of Aleksandr Porfir'evich Borodin in 1887 on the age of fifty three, while he used to be following with out of the ordinary luck the disparate careers of musician, composer, natural chemist, and pioneer in women's scientific schooling. As a different determine one of the outstanding crew of geniuses who without warning seemed in Russia in the midst of the final century and explosively propelled that state into the mainstream of worldwide tradition within the arts, humanities, and sciences, it might probably were anticipated that Borodin was once the item of a lot study. there isn't any doubt that the Russian contribution to the fantastic improvement of structural chemistry within the final century has tended to be underplayed, whereas that during the remainder of Europe has acquired even more realization. One wonders, particularly, even if Borodin's identify would possibly not have seemed within the chemical pantheon, as have these of Mendeleev, Markovnikov, Menshutkin, and plenty of different Russians, if the aldol condensation, which he was once the 1st to find and examine, have been named the Borodin condensation. Straightening out the list is necessary; Figurovskii and Solov'ev's biography does a lot during this admire. simply as meritorious were the scholarly and exhaustive efforts of Professors Charlene Steinberg and George B. Kauffman, who've made the Russian textual content obtainable to the Western international of their exact and engrossing translation.
