Director of RUDN Scientific Center of the Joint Institute of Chemical Research is among the most cited scientists in the world
Clarivate Analytics is the world leader in scientometric analysis. For the fifth time the company has published annual lists of the most influential researchers, basing on citations in the Web of Science database. On the list are 1% of researchers who were best quoted in their field over the past year.
RUDN chemists have proven the effectiveness of metal complexes for catalysis of cyanhydrin production — substances important for the chemical industry. Chemists managed to achieve 96.3% of the reaction efficiency.
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 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.
