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 chemist synthesized gold-based electrocatalysts

A RUDN chemist has synthesized an electrocatalyst based on gold nanoparticles with organic ligands, which can trigger both hydrogen production reactions and oxygen reduction reactions in fuel cells. The yield of products with the new catalyst was twice as high as when using a traditional platinum-based catalyst.

RUDN University chemist discovered a way to quadruple the speed of toluene photooxidation

A chemist from RUDN University has proposed a new way to control toluene photooxidation using composite catalysts — artificial diamond and titanium dioxide. The discovery refutes the previously existing physical hypothesis about the process of photooxidation of toluene.

RUDN University biologist developed new model for analyzing photosynthesis in vivo

A RUDN University biologist has developed a model for the analysis of photosynthesis in vivo. This method allows you to calculate the absorption coefficient of light by chlorophyll, based on its reflectivity. Analysis of light absorption is important for assessing ecosystem productivity, which affects the state of the biosphere and the global climate.
