Prof. Emma Chukhajian is Leading Scientist and Head of the laboratory of aminocompounds of STCOPHCH NAS RA. She obtained her Ph.D. in 1970, postdoctorial in – 1985. In 1969 she discovered base-catalized intramolecular Cyclization of unsaturated ammonium salts, in 2003 - intramolecular Recyclization of 4-hydroxymethylbenzo[f]isoindolinium salts, in 2008 – isomerisation of 3a,4-dihydroisoindolinium salts, in 2011 – Stevens rearrangement of the salts, containing allylic type group along with 4-hydroxybuth-2-ynyl, in 2016 – deamination of 3-(dialkylamino)-1,4- diarylhex-5-en-1-yns during vacuum distillation, leading to terphenyles, established the mechanisms of mentioned reactions. She has published more than 160 Scientific works.
