RUDN University mathematician first described the movement in a flat strip of plasma

RUDN University mathematician for the first time proved the theorem of existence and uniqueness of solutions of the Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation in a strip. Such theorems are very rare for partial differential equations. The new results can be applied, for instance, in astrophysics, in describing the propagation of plane waves in plasma. The article is published in the journal Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications.

A molecular "merry-go-round" complex will make OLED screens twice as bright

A RUDN University chemist synthesized fluorescent compounds with "merry-go-round" molecules that can be used to create economical displays with organic LEDs (OLED). The nucleus of these molecules is a triangle of silver or copper atoms, and organic elements are bound to it through phosphorus atoms and are able to rotate around them. This molecular geometry doubled the quantum yield of luminescence to 41 percent. In modern OLED screens, this figure is 20 percent. The article is published in Inorganic Chemistry.

Efimov Ilia «Synthesis of new BODIPY compounds based on 1,2,4-oxadiazolyl-1H-pyrroles»
The new BODIPY compounds were synthesized based on 1,2,4-oxadiazolyl-1H-pyrroles. The strategy for this new BODIPY was used as reaction azolylenamines with isocyanides followed by next condensation with aldehydes with presence of TEA. These new BODIPY compounds will be tested by cyclic voltammetry for potential application in organic electronics.
