Georgi Pavlovich Gladyshev is a Kazakh-born physical chemist. He is best known in academic circles for his work on chemical processes in space, and on his theoretical work on the role of thermodynamics and entropy in the formation of the planetary systems.
He is the author of more than five hundred scientific articles and ten monographs in the fields of physical chemistry and polymer chemistry.
Born on 19 September 1936 in Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan, he graduated the Chemistry Department of the State University in Alma-Ata in 1959 and received the degree of Candidate of Science in 1962 and a Doctorate degree in polymer chemistry in 1966.
He became Professor of Physical Chemistry in 1969 and the Chief of the Laboratory at the Institute of Chemical Physics of the USSR Academy of Sciences in Moscow in 1970. In 1989 he was elected President of the Academy of Creative Endeavors of the USSR (now International Academy of Creative Endeavors) where he became the head of the Institute of Ecological Biophysical Chemistry in 1990.
