RUDN researchers tell about the evolution of the Earth surface deformation at the World Multidisciplinary Earth Science Symposium
Abnormal horizontal deformations can be symptoms of the coming earthquake – this was the topic of report of V.Kaftan and A.Melnikov, experts from RUDN Agrarian and Technological Institute at the World Multidisciplinary Earth Science Symposium – WMESS held in Prague in September 2017.

Researchers demonstrated results of many years of experiments and observations and suggested an approach to building a scale of earthquakes potential danger with the help of satellite navigation systems.

The Russian delegation comprised 15 representatives of the RF research and academic institutions. Reports of RUDN experts will be published in IOP Earth and Environmental Sciences, indexed in Web of Science and SCOPUS.

RUDN chemist created an efficient catalyst for organic sulfides synthesis

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.

RUDN University mathematicians created a method for study the properties of porous materials

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.

RUDN University biophysicist modelled the behaviour of cell microtubule elements to chemically affect their growth and decay

A biophysicist from RUDN University and his colleagues modelled the molecular dynamics of growth of microtubules, the most important elements of cell activity. The researchers have built a model for the interaction of microtubule subunits, which takes into account their internal and external connections. The results will help form a more complete model of the dynamic instability of microtubules. It will allow choosing chemical agents for the treatment of certain diseases, including neoplasms and neurodegenerative pathologies.
