Mendeleev readings — a solemn act, the annual reports of leading Soviet/Russian scholars on topics affecting all areas of chemistry and its related sciences: physics, biology and biochemistry. Date of readings is due to two dates: birthday of Dmitri Mendeleev (8 February 1834), and sending messages to them on the opening Periodic Law (March 1869).

  • Established by decision of the Board Russian Physical-Chemical Society (founded: Chemical part — 1 January 1868; Physical — May 1872: merged in 1876) and the Academic Board Leningrad State University — 20 January 1940.
  • Held annually since 1941.
  • The tradition was interrupted by the Great Patriotic War.
  • Annual commemoration Mendeleev readings resumed in 1947 in the Leningrad branch of WMOs with LSU—in the 40th anniversary of the death of Mendeleev.
  • In 1953, because of mourning for Stalin, reading is not performed.
  • In 1968 for Jubilee of the opening of Periodic Law—three readings: one—in March, and two—in October.

The right to participate in the readings is determined only criterion—only an outstanding contribution to science reader, is also an indispensable academic degreeDoctor, so the choice of narrator titles, awards and administrative positions have traditionally not been considered and are not indicated.

Mendeleev reading had read the presidents and vice presidents of the USSR Academy of Sciences (after 1991 — Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS)), Active and corresponding members of the Academy. Minister, Nobel laureates, professors.

Mendeleev readings is always performed at the Leningrad State University, now—in the Saint Petersburg State University, a large chemical audience Department of Chemistry St. Petersburg State University (in the yard the main university building—on the sland Vasilevsky Island of St. Petersburg); currently reading held at the lecture Mendelian Center—University Embankment, 7 / 9, Vasilevsky Island, St. Petersburg,
