APDIC Russia (Baikov)

The Baikov Institute of Metallurgy, Russia



The main task of the Baikov Institute of Metallurgy and Materials Science, Russian Academy of Sciences is to perform fundamental and applied research in metallurgy and materials science:

  • Physical and chemical foundations for designing metallic, ceramic, composite, and functional materials, intermetallics, single crystals, materials with amorphous and nanocrystalline structures, nanomaterials, materials based on refractory nonmetallic compounds, ceramic biomaterials, colloid and nanoparticles;
  • Surface phenomena, physico-chemical mechanics; all aspects of phase equilibria and phase diagrams;
  • Synthesis of chemical compounds with unique properties, specific-purpose substances, high-efficiency and selective catalysts and catalytic systems;
  • Physical, chemical and technological foundations of energy-efficient and ecologically friendly manufacturing processing of ferrous, non-ferrous, and rare metals and alloys;
  • Physical, chemical and technological foundations of forming and deformation processes; strength theory; high-temperature, high-pressure processes in chemistry and materials science;
  • Physical, chemical and technological foundations for designing new materials based on nano-sized and spheroidized powders manufactured by additive and plasma thermal technologies and nanotechnologies;
  • Research methods of the structure and properties of materials.

The Baikov Institute became a member of the Alloy Phase Diagram International Commission (APDIC) in 1991.
