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 conference on catalysis and surface chemistry in Poland is organized by the Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, which this year celebrated its 50th anniversary.

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.

RUDN University Engineers Propose a New Approach for Accounting Plastic Anisotropy in the Theoretical Description of Metal Forming Processes

RUDN University engineers have shown that theoretical calculations traditionally used to describe the compression of metal work pieces, do not take into account an important property of materials. Scientists have proposed a new approach that considered the missing property and showed that the final result in this case changes by 15-20%.
