Associate Professor of the Department of Physical and Colloidal Chemistry of RUDN Zurida Murga took part in the 50th International Conference on Catalysis and Surface Chemistry in Krakow
The Institute was founded in 1968, under the guidance of Professor Jerzy Haber and is part of the Krakow Scientific Community, the leading Polish research center in the field of chemistry.
Many researchers who took part in the conference, at the beginning of their scientific work were trained at the Haber Institute. Professor Jerzy Haber was known for his open position regarding the exchange of scientific knowledge - and the conference in Krakow at his institute, has been following the ideas of its founder for 50 years.
At the anniversary 50th conference Ogólnopolskie Kolokwium Katalityczne, such well-known scientists as Professor of the Catalysis Laboratory of the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Ken Lee, Professor Hans Freund of Fritz Gaber Institute of the Max Planck Scientific Society and his colleague Maurizio Prieto.
28 plenary lectures of leading chemists, 32 oral and over 100 poster reports on the theory of catalytic processes, electrochemical catalysis, physical chemistry of soft materials, interaction in dispersed systems, catalytic processes for environmental protection and other relevant topics of modern chemistry were delivered at the event.
October 6, the Nobel Committee announced the 2021 Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry. They were scientists Benjamin List (Germany) and David Macmillan (USA) for new methods of molecular synthesis. RUDN chemists know Professor Liszt personally — in 2019, the researcher came to participate in the university conference.
The Nobel Committee in Stockholm has named the laureates in Medicine — David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian. They discovered how temperature or touch, for example, is transformed into human sensations.
Allowing for quantum corrections, the Einstein-Lovelock theory describes black holes with an equation that contains an infinite number of terms. However, according to a RUDN University physicist, the geometry of a black hole in this theory can be presented in a compact form, and a limited number of terms can suffice to describe the observed values. This could help scientists study black holes in theories with quantum corrections to Einstein’s equations.
