    Chichibabin, A. E. J. Russ. Phys. Chem. Soc. 1906, 37, 1229. Alexei E. Chichibabin (1871–1945) was born in Kuzemino, Russia. He was Markovnikov’s favorite student. Markovnikov’s successor, Zelinsky (of Hell–Volhard–Zelinsky reaction fame) did not want to cooperate with the pupil and gave Chichibabin a negative judgment on his Ph.D. work, earning Chichibabin the nickname “the self-educated man.”Google Scholar
