RUDN University scientists participated in the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018)
On the 25 - 28 of February 2018 in Houston, USA, was held the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) - the largest international industrial and scientific event in the field of creation and application of various technologies of the oil refining industry.

On the 25 — 28 of February 2018 in Houston, USA, was held the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) — the largest international industrial and scientific event in the field of creation and application of various technologies of the oil refining industry.

GOPE-2018 aimed to join the scientific community working on various aspects of research and development to promote the exchange of ideas across a wide range of disciplines, including significant advancement and challenges in the energy sector — gas, oil, coal and fuel engineering. Prospects for the development of the oil and gas industry are mainly associated with the wide manufacturing application of advanced technologies and equipment to improve the efficiency of technological processes, their economy, reliability and safety.

This year the conference attracted more than 150 scientists working in the fields of gas, oil, coal and fuel engineering from the USA, the Netherlands, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Australia, Singapore, China. During the work of the conference were presented more than 100 reports. In particular, the conference was attended by representatives of fuel corporations and universities: Schlumberger, Davis L. Ford & Associates Nalco Champion, University of Maryland (129 QS World University Rankings), Louisiana State University (USA), University of Edinburgh (23 QS World University Rankings, United Kingdom), Petro China Southwest Oil and Gas Field Company, China University of Petroleum, University of Houston (USA), etc.

Jointly with representative of A.V. Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis of Russian Academy of Sciences (TIPS RAS) was presented report “Peculiarities of hydrocarbons transformation of benzene and adamantane range in the conditions of acid catalysis”. The report was devoted to the description of intramolecular reorganizations and displacements in the mechanism of isomerization reactions of hydrocarbons of the adamantane series.

RUDN soil scientists developed a new method for assessing soil fertility

RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.

RUDN University chemists proposed a way to reduce three times the temperature for the oxidation of alkanes

RUDN University chemists and their colleagues from the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed new catalysts that allow to reduce the temperature of the oxidation reaction of alkanes three times — from 150 to 50 degrees. This significantly reduces the cost of synthesizing alcohols, aldehydes and other compounds needed, in particular, for the production of nylon and capron.
