Nanomaterials Research Institute (NRI) is a scientific structural division of Ivanovo State University which focuses on doing research in the sphere of nanomaterials. The institute was set up as a successor of the Liquid Crystals Research Laboratory in 2008. The history of the Laboratory goes back to the foundation of Ivanovo State University. The school of Ivanovo specialists in the areas of liquid-crystal materials synthesis and research is well-known and valued all over the world. It was here where in the 70’s of the 20th century the first synthesis of liquid crystalline compounds was carried out in the Soviet Union and this synthesis marked the beginning of the age of modern electrooptics.
IvSU publishes a number of scientific journals. Among them one can mention such publications as ‘Liquid Crystals and Their Application’, ‘Woman in Russian Society’ and ‘Intelligentsia and the World’ which are included by the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles into the special list of journals recommended for publishing main results of research aimed at gaining the academic degrees of Candidates and Doctors of Sciences.
