Scientific seminar on the differential and functional differential equation under the guidance of Professor A.L. Skubachevskii
We study the Dirichlet problem for a functional differential equation containing shifted and contracted argument under the Laplacian sign. We establish conditions for the unique solvability and demonstrate also that the problem may have an infinite dimensional solution manifold.

Joulia Larionova (University of Montpellier, France) «Prussian blue type nano-objects: new opportunities for old materials»
Prussian Blue type nanoparticles are exciting nano-objects that combine the advantages of molecule-based materials and nanochemistry. They are made by transition metal ions or lanthanides assembled through cyano-bridged ligand into nano-sized architectures of the general formula AxMyII[M’III(CN)6]z (where A is a monovalent cation, MII and M’III are transition metal ions or lanthanides). These nano-objects attracted a great deal of interest during the last ten years due to their specific molecule-based nature that is different compared to other inorganic nanoparticles. This lecture will provide a brief critical look on the recent advancement in this field of research focalising on the design of PB type nano-objects and their nanocomposites promising as nanoprobes for imaging, as therapeutic agents for photothermal therapy, as well as agents for Cs+ decontamination.

Jérôme Long (University of Montpellier, France) «Multifunctional molecule-based magnets: slow relaxation, luminescence and above room-temperature ferroelectricity»
Coordination chemistry of lanthanide ions allows the tailored design of multifunctional ferroelectric molecule-based materials where the properties are gathered into a single molecular system. We investigate here, by using luminescent and magnetically anisotropic lanthanides ions assembled with an enantiopure antenna ligand, the synthesis of high temperature ferroelectric complexes having a high degree of functionality, combining Single-Molecule Magnet behavior, optical activity and lanthanide luminescence. Remarkably, these molecular systems behave as ferroelectrics up to a temperature above 180 K of the Curie temperature of BaTiO3, making it the highest temperature working molecular ferroelectric yet reported. Remarkably, investigation of the magnetoelectrical coupling at room temperature confirms their great potential as multiferroics.

Scientific seminar of post-doc Najoua Sbei «A facile one pot synthesis of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline-1-carbonitrile via the electrogenerated acetonitrile»
The nitrogen heterocycle presents a very important use in the pharmaceutical and agrochemicals synthesis. In this case the substituted tetrahydroisoquinoline has a broad range of biologicals activities.

Scientific seminar on the differential and functional differential equation under the guidance of Professor A.L. Skubachevskii
A useful method will be discussed to decide whether a given non-singular projective variety is not toric. The main idea of this method is to recognize invariant subgraphs of the weight (hyper)graph w.r.t. the connection, and to compare them with faces of a simple moment polytope of a projective toric variety.
