Fourteen young crystallographers from 7 cities in Russia and Ukraine submitted their papers for the Struchkov Prize competition in 2006. The papers were scored by 12 experts who represented the majority of the crystallographic labs of Russia and the former Soviet Union. The Prize was awarded to N.A. Sennova (St. Petersburg U.) for “High-temperature crystal chemistry of sodium and lithium borates in connection with their properties” and D.B. Krivolapov (A.E. Arbuzov Inst. of Organic and Physical Chemistry, Kazan) for “The peculiarities of conglomerate crystallization of β-adrenoreceptor blocking agents”.

Also presented were two Supplementary Awards – T.N. Rudneva (Inst. of Problems of Chemical Physics, Chernogolovka) and A.G. Ivanova (Moscow State U.) and four Special Supplementary Awards – O.N. Kazheva (Inst. of Problems of Chemical Physics, Chernogolovka), O.A. Gurbanova, P.A. Plachinda (both from Moscow State U.), and N.V. Kurat’eva (Inst. of Inorganic Chemistry, Novosibirsk).

In 2006 the Struchkov Prize Society received contributions from 23 members, currently working in 8 countries (Armenia, China, France, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and US) with a total of $2600. This sum was used as a prize fund for the competition. Each winner received $800 and each recipient of the supplementary and special supplementary awards received $300 and $100 respectively.
