Agladze Institute of Inorganic Chemistry & Electrochemistry (IICE) was founded in 1956 within the Georgian Academy of Sciences. Its founder and first director was very prominent scientist, Acad. R. I. Agladze. During its existence, the vast contributions have been brought in the electrochemistry of manganese, nitrogen, chromium, copper, the important technologies were used in industry (electrolytic manganese, potassium permanganate). The important investigations were carried out in the fields of thermochemistry, theory of the charge transfer in condensed systems, electrochemistry of melts, radiation chemistry etc. IICE has 11 scientific laboratories. It currently employs just over 100 doctorate-level (PhD and Dr.Sc.) researchers. Facilities include experimental workshops.
