The development of studies on mechanical activation and mechanochemistry in Siberia is discussed. The role of Siberian scientists in the establishment of this important division of modern chemical science in our country and abroad is shown. It is concluded that the period of the accumulation of primary experimental data has been completed and that it is necessary to develop further basic research related to mechanical action on the reactivity of solids.
