We conducted research on the content of chemical elements in the hair of more than 60,000 Russians. Hair can accumulate information, while a blood test can show problems only during an exacerbation of diseases. So, for example, it can be determined by hair that five years ago a person lived in an area poor in calcium and worked in industries related to electroplating or welding. The quality and composition of water, air and soil directly affect our body. This was known in the middle of the last century. Unfortunately, more such a large-scale work on soil analysis has not been carried out. And so sorry. After all, knowing in which areas, for example, lack of iodine or zinc in soil or water, we could produce enriched products that would restore the imbalance of useful substances in the body, thereby significantly improving the quality of life.

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.
