Russian physicist and chemist are in the list of possible Nobel prize winners
Georgiy Shulpin, Doctor of Chemistry, and Rashid Sunyaev, the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) academician were first included in the list of most cited researchers in 2017. Specializing in the field of science and science analytics, Clarivate Analytics forms this list specifically to pre-calculate possible candidates for the Nobel Prize.
Georgiy Shulpin (Hirsch index is 51) is a leading researcher of the Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics RAS. He developed the reaction of aromatic hydrocarbons with hexachloroplatinates under the heat influence, light or gamma radiation with the formation of organometallic compounds. Georgiy worked on the creation of effective catalytic systems for the oxidation of saturated hydrocarbons. Metal complex catalysis is the area of his scientific interests.
Rashid Sunyaev (Hirsch index is 104) is the chief research worker of the Russian Space Research Institute RAS and the head of the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA). The most famous works are the standard theory of disk accretion for black holes and neutron stars, the prediction of the influence of acoustic waves in the early Universe on the angular fluctuations of the relict radiation (acoustic peaks) and on the spatial distribution of galaxies. Also, the «Syunyaev-Zeldovich effect» allowing the use of clusters of galaxies as a powerful tool of observational cosmology. According to the Astrophysics Data System, more than 60,000 references were made to the work of Rashid Syunyaev in scientific journals.
h-index or Hirsch index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist’s most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications. The index can also be applied to the productivity and impact of a scholarly journa as well as a group of scientists, such as a department or university or country. The index was suggested in 2005 by Jorge E. Hirsch, a physicist at UCSD, as a tool for determining theoretical physicists’ relative qualit.
