Experts of RUDN Joint Institute for Chemical Research make a presentation at the Petromass 2018 in Slovenia
Today no modern high-tech area can do without mass spectrometry: chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, pharmaceutics, geology, ecology, geography, criminalistics, oil refining, energy, antiterrorism, food and drink quality control, doping -control, space and nuclear research, nanotechnology and defense, etc. Thanks to mass spectrometry, new branches of knowledge have emerged and are rapidly developing: genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering, petroleum, huminomics and metabolomics. Mass-spectrometric express diagnostics of oncological, cardiovascular, genetic diseases is universally introduced in the clinics of developed countries.
This year the conference has gathered more than 100 researchers from the United States, France, Colombia, China, India, Serbia, and Germany who made more than 90 presentations: Prof. A.Marshall (National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Florida State University, USA), Prof. K. Stojanović (University of Belgrade, Serbia), Prof. R.Zimmermann (Joint Mass Spectrometry Centre of the University of Rostock and Helmholtz Zentrum, Germany), C.Gonzalez (National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA), Prof. E.E. Stashenko (Universidad Industrial de Santander, Columbia), Prof. A.Piram (Aix Marseille University, France), А.-М. Delort (Université Clermont Auvergne, France), V.Artaev (LECO Corporation), H.P.Nytoft (GEUS) etc.
Experts of RUDN Joint Institute for Chemical Research of the PFUR and A.V. Topchiev Institute of RAS jointly presented the report "In-source derivatization of alcohols for fast profiling of steroles in food by DART-MS" describing the processes of formation of derivatives with a fixed charge in the ionization source of the DART mass spectrometer and the possibility of using this effect for the analysis of alcohols in various matrices. In the second report "Post-Chromatographic Decomposition for TLC / MALDI analysis”. researchers considered the possibility of using derivatization approaches for the analysis of alcohols by the TLC / MALDI method.
Un profesor de RUDN University desarrolló un modelo computacional que describe completamente el daño que ocurre en la carrocería de automóviles por fatiga de materiales. El experimento computacional demostró que en carreteras irregulares, la velocidad baja provoca daños más graves en la carrocería que la velocidad promedio. Este descubrimiento ayudará a evaluar con mayor precisión la resistencia de los vehículos a las cargas.
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.
