Boris Moiseyevich Ginzburg (1937-2015) is the RF Honoured Science Worker, Doctor in Physics and Mathematics, Professor, had been working in the Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of RAS since 1986 to 2015, since 1998 was the Head of the laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Materials. Over the whole time of his scientific activity B.M. Ginzburg published 323 academic papers, 223 of them were published while working in IPMash RAS, more than ten patents were obtained.
The academic career of B.M. Ginzburg started in 1960 after graduation from Leningrad Polytechnic Institute named after M.I. Kalinin. Since 1963 to 1986 his life was connected with the Institute of High Molecular Compounds of RAS, where he finished postgraduate studies and defended first Candidate’s (1967) and then Doctoral (1980) dissertations. After years in the Institute of High Molecular Compounds of RAS, B.M. Ginzburg became a renowned expert in physics and mechanics of polymers.
Among his pioneer studies, the first observation and investigation should be noted concerning crystalline solvates on the base of synthetic polymers (polybenzimidazoles) and development of new principles of thermomechanical studies of highly-oriented polymers (using the example of collagen fibres – together with L.V. Kukhareva).
Later, B.M. Ginzburg and his disciples developed new scientific ideas about deformation of amorphous-crystalline polymers, according to which the essential (and often decisive) contribution into deformation of the samples at micro level is made by shear deformation of crystallites. B.M. Ginzburg introduced a concept of critical shear angle of crystallites. Together with F. Gyde (USA) he gave the most complete structural interpretation of tensile deformation curves for amorphous-crystalline polymers. B.M. Ginzburg together with Ye.T. Magdalev contributed weightly into investigations on elasticity of crystal lattices of polymers, polyimides especially. He suggested a unique physical method for determination of force constants of complex polyhydric groups.
B.M. Ginzburg gave much attention to development of methods of small-angle and wide-angle X-ray dissipation and their usage for study of the structure of polymer systems under load. Together with the group of Tadjik scientists he suggested a simple X-ray method to determine the easiest slip planes in polymer crystallites. Together with Yu.V. Brestkin, D. Rashidov and I. Moneva (Bulgaria) some new approaches were developed concerning study of supermolecular polymer structure at the optically-scaled level, studied was the nature of the central “spot” on diffraction patterns of linearly polarized light for spherulitic systems. In creative group with B.A. Asherov a concept of “ideal supermolecular paracrystal” was introduced, the special cases of which are all the best known models of supermolecular structure of oriented amorphous-crystalline polymers. B.M. Ginzburg, together with A.A. Shepelevskiy, was the first who gave reasons and plotted a phase diagram for the system of rigid-chain polymer/solvent (as exampled by synthetic polypeptide) in the whole area of polymer concentration.
At first the main field of B.M. Ginzburg’s work in IPMash RAS was tribology of fullerene-containing materials (FCM). But later, in cooperation with Institute of High Molecular Compounds of RAS and Physico-Technical Institute of RAS, Artificial Rubber Institute of RAS and Tadjik State University, he organized and carried out several cycles of work on mechanics of non-ideal and multiphase mediums. In particular, studied were the structure, mechanical and tribological properties of solid polymer systems (rubber resins, amorphous and crystal polymers) with nanoscale components, for which the fullerenes were used, as well as multiwalled nanotubes и nanodiamonds. As a result, proven was essential improvement of tribological properties of such systems, and suggested was, on molecular level, the mechanism of behavior of nanoscale core materials. The same years, the studies were carried out on kinetics of thermo and mechanical desorbing processes in polymer composites, studied was the structure and tribological properties of liquid systems, including lubricating liquids with nanoscale additives.
With open hands B.M. Ginzburg shared his experience and knowledge with young scientists. With his lead defended were 12 Candidate’s and 2 Doctoral dissertations. Many times he made the reports at International Symposiums and Conferences in universities and scientific institutes of Europe. B.M. Ginzburg was a member of Interdepartmental Council on Tribology, a member of Dissertation Councils of the Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of RAS and of the Institute of High Molecular Compounds of RAS.
In scientific community B.M. Ginzburg was known as high-professional man, man of principle, brilliant speaker and facetious companion.
