Abdukodir Khakimov graduated from the Faculty of Infocommunication Networks and Systems of St. Petersburg State University of Telecommunications named after Bonch-Bruevich, his scientific advisor was PhD in Engineering Muthann Ammar Saleh Ali. Over the past few years, Abdukodir has been directly involved in the scientific research of the Institute, in particular, in the development of the laboratory of the 5G Wireless Network Modeling Center in the framework of cooperation between RUDN University and St. Petersburg State University of Technology, where he established himself as a talented young scientist.
A chemist from RUDN University has developed a catalyst for the production of eugenol acetate, a substance that destroys the larvae of mosquitoes transmitting dangerous diseases, being a safe chemical for human health.
RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.
A RUDN chemist has synthesized a catalyst for the production of gamma-valerolactone — an energy-intensive “green” biofuel. The catalyst based on zirconium dioxide and zeolite has shown high efficiency in converting the waste of wood plant materials — methyl levulinate — to gamma-valerolactone.
