Chemist from RUDN received a new structural type of compound that includes atoms of metals (copper and sodium) in the frame structure, in the form resembling a bicycle helmet. The compound exhibits catalytic activity in two important organic synthesis reactions. Development can be used in the context of creating new catalysts for the chemical industry. The work of scientists published in the journal Dalton Transaction.

RUDN mathematicians confirmed that the Earth has other satellites besides the Moon - cosmic dust clouds that are difficult to observe. A hypothesis about their existence had been developed 60 years ago, but first confirmations were obtained only last year. The calculations of RUDN mathematicians give a mathematical proof of the obtained data and will be used to plan space missions.
