А. G. Merzhanov
SHS investigation development is considered from the geographical and historical viewpoint.
3 stages are described. Within Stage 1 the work was carried out in the Department of the Institute of
Chemical Physics in Chernogolovka where the scientific discovery had been made. At Stage 2 the
interest to SHS arose in different cities and towns of the former USSR. Within Stage 3 SHS entered the
international scene. Now SHS processes and products are being studied in more than 50 countries.
