Vladimir Kutcherov

Vladimir G. Kutcherov graduated from the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (Moscow) as a petroleum engineer in 1977. He is currently an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Energy Technology at the Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm), and a Professor at the Department of Physics at Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (Moscow). His main research interests deal with the problem of the origin of hydrocarbons and oil and gas deposits accumulation. Prof. Kutcherov and his international collaborators have published a set of papers in PNAS, Nature Geoscience, Review of Geophysics, where the possibility of abiogenic synthesis of complex hydrocarbon systems was convincingly demonstrated.

Hydrocarbons provide our core energy resource. Information on their origin, properties and phase behavior is interesting from the point of view of physical chemistry. At the same time this information is of great value to the oil and gas industry. The book "Hydrocarbon" is comprised of 9 chapters, covering different topics: from origin of hydrocarbons to the method for hydrocarbon exploration. Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in soil and their influence to environment are also discussed. This book should serve as a support to researchers and students as well as experts, both in academia and industry.
