    Dr. Larissa Levina has a Masters Degree in Organic Chemistry from the Chemistry Department of the Kazakh State University and holds a Ph.D. in Organic Catalysis and Electrochemistry from the Institute of Organic Catalysis and Electrochemistry, Almaty, Kazakhstan. During her employment as a Senior Researcher at the Laboratory of Homogeneous Catalysis of the Institute of Organic Catalysis and Electrochemistry in Almaty, Kazakhstan, Dr. Levina has investigated the kinetics of the oxidation hydrogen sulfide by ozone in presence of halogen anions and Cerium halogenides. She has also developed novel liquid-gas phase method of cleaning industrial gases from hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen phosphide, and hydrogen arsenide in the presence of homogeneous catalysts. Presently Dr. Levina is working on the synthesis of novel nanomaterials.
