November 2012 marked the 60thanniversary of the Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science, starting from the day the Laboratory for Special Alloys was set up under the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian Soviet Republic. The Laboratory originated from the Institute of Ferrous Metallurgy (Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian Soviet Republic) owing to a remarkable scientist, Ivan Frantsevich, who headed the Physical Chemistry Department in the Kiev State University and the Department of Physical Chemistry of Metallurgical Processes in the Institute and was a corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences. The main scientific area of the Laboratory was based on Frantsevich's global and challenging idea at that time: to create new materials with desired properties for extreme performance using results of fundamental research in physical and inorganic chemistry, physical metallurgy, and mechanics of deformable solids and to implement the developments in national economy....
