HISTORY OF CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY Professor Semen Petrovich Vukolov (To His 140th Birthday Anniversary) One of the closest pupils and co-workers of D.I. Mendeleev, professor Semen Petrovich Vukolov, who is among the most prominent specialists in ex- plosives and powders, made a major contribution to the improvement of the fighting efficiency of the Rus- sian Navy and to training of engineers-chemists spe- cialized in this field. S.P. Vukolov was born on September 6 (August 23), 1863, in the Don region at Starocherkasskaya stanitsa (Cossack village). Having received primary education at a local school, he entered Novocherkassk Gymnasium, wherefrom he graduated with gold metal in 1882. When still studying at the gymnasium, he, mostly on his own, mastered German, French, and English languages. In 1882, Vukolov entered, and in 1887 graduated from, the natural department of the physicomathematical faculty at St. Petersburg Univer- sity. His acquaintance with D.I. Mendeleev (1834 1907) largely determined all the subsequent activities of the young scientist. Having Russian Journal of Applied Chemistry Springer Journals
