A complete century has handed because the unexpected and tragically untimely death of Aleksandr Porfir'evich Borodin in 1887 on the age of fifty three, while he used to be following with extraordinary luck the disparate careers of musician, composer, natural chemist, and pioneer in women's clinical schooling. As a distinct determine one of the striking workforce of geniuses who all of sudden seemed in Russia in the midst of the final century and explosively propelled that kingdom into the mainstream of worldwide tradition within the arts, humanities, and sciences, it may well were anticipated that Borodin was once the thing 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 got even more recognition. One wonders, particularly, even if Borodin's identify will possibly not have seemed within the chemical pantheon, as have these of Mendeleev, Markovnikov, Menshutkin, and lots 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 recognize. simply as meritorious were the scholarly and exhaustive efforts of Professors Charlene Steinberg and George B. Kauffman, who've made the Russian textual content available to the Western international of their exact and engrossing translation.
