Associate Professor of the Department of Physical and Colloidal Chemistry of RUDN Zurida Murga took part in the 50th International Conference on Catalysis and Surface Chemistry in Krakow
The Institute was founded in 1968, under the guidance of Professor Jerzy Haber and is part of the Krakow Scientific Community, the leading Polish research center in the field of chemistry.
Many researchers who took part in the conference, at the beginning of their scientific work were trained at the Haber Institute. Professor Jerzy Haber was known for his open position regarding the exchange of scientific knowledge - and the conference in Krakow at his institute, has been following the ideas of its founder for 50 years.
At the anniversary 50th conference Ogólnopolskie Kolokwium Katalityczne, such well-known scientists as Professor of the Catalysis Laboratory of the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Ken Lee, Professor Hans Freund of Fritz Gaber Institute of the Max Planck Scientific Society and his colleague Maurizio Prieto.
28 plenary lectures of leading chemists, 32 oral and over 100 poster reports on the theory of catalytic processes, electrochemical catalysis, physical chemistry of soft materials, interaction in dispersed systems, catalytic processes for environmental protection and other relevant topics of modern chemistry were delivered at the event.
A research team from RUDN University developed an algorithm to help large groups of people make optimal decisions in a short time. They confirmed the efficiency of their model using the example of the market at which the outbreak of COVID-19 began. The model helped the administration and sellers agree on closing the market and reach a consensus about the sums of compensations in just three steps.
A team of chemists from RUDN University suggested a universal method to synthesize thienoindolizine derivatives. Because of their special properties, these substances can be used to manufacture antibacterial and antitumor drugs, as well as new materials for optoelectronics.
Even if a black hole can be described with a mathematical model, it doesn’t mean it exists in reality. Some theoretical models are unstable: though they can be used to run mathematical calculations, from the point of view of physics they make no sense. A physicist from RUDN University developed an approach to finding such instability regions.
