RUDN University Chemist Creates Nanofilter to Clean Water from Toxic Dyes

RUDN University chemist with colleagues from India and Korea created a nanofilter for water purification from synthetic dyes. The graphene-based composite can quickly remove up to 100% of harmful compounds from water, and it can be used up to seven times without losing efficiency. In addition, the synthesis of the nanofilter itself is economical and environmentally friendly.

Abnormalities in the development of the brain in premature babies have learned to predict by three-dimensional ultrasound

People who were born prematurely, with a lower body weight and growth delays in the womb, are more likely to suffer from disorders of neuropsychological development. RUDN doctors have proposed and tested a method by which deviations can be detected in the first weeks of life.

RUDN University Chemists Obtained an Unusual Planar Nickel complex exhibiting Magnetic Properties

RUDN University chemists obtained a metal-containing complex with an unusual planar architecture. The unexpected structure was formed due to the spontaneous fixation of carbon dioxide from the air during the reaction. This compound exhibits unusual magnetic properties (spin glass behaviour). This can be useful for creating memory storage devices.

RUDN chemists have shown how a new antitumor drug interacts with blood proteins

RUDN chemists investigated in detail the molecular mechanism of interaction of the newly created antitumor drug with blood proteins. The results will not only allow us to judge the effectiveness of the drug, but also are of interest from the point of view of understanding the mechanisms of action of such drugs.

RUDN University nanotechnologists have studied the use of gold nanoparticles for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer

Nanoparticles are used for targeted delivery of drugs, toxic agents for the destruction of cancer cells, as well as for diagnosticsand. In the treatment of cancer, drugs are increasingly combined with nanomaterials, since in combination they affectthe causes and manifestations ofthedisease from different sides. Gold nanoparticles are well suited for therapy and diagnosis, since they are inert, easily penetrate into tumor cells and linger in them. Researchers at IBHTN and RUDN University studied which parameters of gold nanoparticles determine their success in cancer therapy.

RUDN University Chemist Creates Reusable Vanadium Catalysts on a Carbon Framework

The RUDN University chemist together with colleagues from Portugal created catalysts based on vanadium, supported on a carbon framework. They can be used, for example, to produce adipic acid. The use of the framework increased the efficiency of the catalysts, made them reusable and allowed the reaction to be carried out with microwave radiation instead of the more energy-consuming oil heating.
