Boris Moroz was trained in Chemistry in Tomsk State Unversity (Russia) and then undertook a PhD in Chemistry at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (BIC) in Novosibirsk, when he designed the bimetallic catalysts for alkene hydroformylation in the group of Prof. V. Likholobov. In 1984, BM was offered a permanent research position in BIC in a laboratory devoted to catalysis by metal complexes. Since 2002, he is a leader of a research team at BIC which developed supported gold-based catalysts for various applications. During this period, he was working as a visiting scientist in the research centers in India, Germany and USA. BM has co-authored about 70 peer-reviewed articles and the International Handbook on Heterogeneous Catalysis (2007). He also teaches at the Novosibirsk State University as an Associate Professor; his teaching curriculum includes Organic Chemistry: An Introductive Course and Inorganic Synthesis. Besides scientific and teaching activities, BM enjoys rock music and jazz, history and traveling.
