Sergey Semyonovich Namyotkin (Russian: Серге́й Семёнович Намёткин; 3 July [O.S. 21 June] 1876 – 5 August 1950) was a Russian chemist, a prominent researcher in terpene chemistry and rearrangement of camphenes.
The Nametkin rearrangement is the shift of a methyl group in this scheme and called the 'Nametkin' step. The shift of the ring bond is actually a standard Wagner-Meerwein shift. The reaction can in fact be used to make the terpene, using chlorocamphene.
