The names of the doctor of chemical Sciences George Shul’pina I a and academician Rashid Sunyaev included in the list of most cited researchers in 2017, which is the analytical company Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters — specializiruetsya in the field of scientometrics and research analysts). This list is generated specifically to pre-calculate the contenders for the Nobel prize by the number of cited papers, which correspond to concepts in science and the famous «Nobel prize» set of categories. This year the list was first included in the Russian researchers in the field of chemistry — George Culpin, senior researcher of the Institute of chemical physics them. N. N. Semenova Russian Academy of Sciences, and in physics — Rashid Sunyaev, chief researcher at IKI ran, Director of the Institute of astrophysics of the society of max Planck (Germany), visiting Professor at the Institute for advanced study in Princeton (USA).

George Sculpin is currently leading researcher of the Institute of chemical physics named after N. N. Semenova Russian Academy of Sciences. H-Index 51.

The area of interest is catalysis — a phenomenon, when using a small quantity of catalyst substance a to substance B. Activation links, «carbon-hydrogen» in saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons oxidation of hydrocarbons. Developed a reaction of aromatic hydrocarbons with hexachloroplatinate under the influence of heat, light, or gamma radiation with the formation of ORGANOMETALLIC compounds. Worked on the development of efficient catalytic systems for the oxidation of saturated hydrocarbons.

Among the results obtained by R. A. Sunyaev, the most famous «standard» theory of disk accretion onto black holes and neutron stars (Shakur and Sunyaev 1973, 1976); the formula Sunyaev-Titarchuk (1980) for the emission spectrum formed during comptonization low-frequency photons in a hot plasma; the prediction of the influence of acoustic waves in the early Universe on the angular fluctuations of the CMB (the acoustic peaks) and on the spatial distribution of galaxies, the so – called baryon acoustic oscillations (1970); «the Sunyaev-zel’dovich effect» (1972), allows you to use clusters of galaxies as a powerful tool of observational cosmology. According to the astrophysical database, NASA ADS (Astrophysics Data System) for his work in domestic and foreign scientific journals, made more than 60 000 references, and the article N. And. Shakura and R. A. Sunyaev (1973) is the most cited article in the world of theoretical astrophysics (8 140 references). H-index is equal to 104.
