Prof. Bogdan Lazoryak is being presented with the Distinguished Grantee Award for 2010.

He attended Moscow State University, Department of Chemistry from 1972 – 1977 and received a first-class diploma. At Moscow State, he was a post-graduate from 1978-1981 and was a Candidate of Chemical Sciences in 1982 (“Structure and properties of double molybdates, tungstates and phosphates of alkaline and rare earth elements”). He earned his Doctor of Chemical Sciences in 1992 (“Design, structure and properties of phosphates and silicophosphates with tetrahedric anions”).

He has over 25 years of experience as a research and a professor at Moscow State University, Department of Chemistry, Chair of Inorganic Chemistry and Chemical Technology. In 1987-1988, he worked as a research at the Laboratory of Solid State Chemistry, University of Bordeaux, France. He currently supervises 57 graduate and 18-post-graduate students. 

His primary research interests include solid state chemistry, inorganic chemistry, crystal chemistry and chemical methods of materials analysis; design, structure, synthesis, properties and reactivity of materials for proton conductive ceramics, sensors and high-temperature membrane catalysts of hydrogenation and dehydrogenation processes; reversible non-destructive redox reactions in solids. He has published over 182 articles in scientific journals.

The ICDD Distinguished Grantee Award is presented to a grantee who has demonstrated exceptional contributions to the ICDD through Grant-in-Aid activities. Prof. Lazoryak was introduced to the ICDD Grant-in-Aid Program in 1993. Since then he has contributed over 490 patterns, with 98% of those being of “*” quality.
