ICEMA is an annual event, where scientists, engineers, representatives of universities and industry of the world present and discuss current trends in the development of new energy materials and resource-saving. In the last two years, the ICEMA activities have been successful in Seoul (South Korea) and Hiroshima (Japan).
The topics of the ICEMA 2018 included issues of energy material, hydrogen energy, hydrogen production, fuel elements, biofuels, solar energy, nanomaterials,
Ekaterina Markova, senior lecturer of the RUDN Department of Physical and Colloid Chemistry was the only representative from Russia at such a large inter-branch event. She made an oral presentation "Investigations of the catalytic activity of the newest nanomaterial on the example of nanofiber alumina for the modern energy in the cracking reaction".
Yakov Kuzyakov, a well-known soil scientist, a leading scientist at RUDN Agricultural and Technological Institute and a professor at the King Saud University, has been awarded the title of highly cited researcher in the field of agricultural sciences (according to Clarivate).
A RUDN chemist has obtained a new compound — a dumbbell-shaped phosphate-bridged molybdenum cluster. The cluster accelerates the reaction of the formation of sulfides from oxides and can be used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturing.
Mathematicians from RUDN University have studied the properties of compositional operators in spaces with mixed Lebesgue norms. It will help describe the diffusion of liquids in materials with cracks and in porous materials. Such spaces are also useful for obtaining estimates for solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation.
