…..The Institute cooperates with the leading national academies of sciences, universities, and well-known research institutes in USA, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Japan, Korea, Australia, and many other countries. Scientists of the Institute actively participate in many international scientific congresses and conferences, and their monographs have been translated and published in many countries. The Institute closely collaborates in various fields of applied research with large enterprises of the RF Ministry of Atomic Energy, the RF Ministry of Defense, and other federal organizations. The Institute has contracts with companies and scientific centers of France, Germany, India, Korea, USA, and other countries.
…..The Institute always played an important role in the coordination of basic and applied research in Russia in the fields corresponding to the main directions of physical chemistry. In particular, the Institute performed tremendous work in 1970–1980s as a scientific supervisor and coordinator of works according to the State Program devoted to the prevention of corrosive and erosive damage of metals, alloys, and other construction materials. This coordination and organization work is successfully continued at present. Indeed, the Institute hosts Scientific Councils of the RAS, in colloid chemistry and physicochemical mechanics, adsorption and chromatography, and electrochemistry. The Institute also hosts the Coordination Council on the basic research program “New Approaches to Increasing the Corrosion Resistance and Radiation Stability of Materials and Radioecological Safety” at the Division of Chemistry and Materials Sciences of the RAS. In addition, the Institute has organized the inter-institution seminar “Nanoparticles and Self-Organization Phenomena”.
