A RUDN University chemist has created an unusual carbon structure that can be used as a cathode in zinc-ion supercapacitors. The batteries obtained on its basis have a higher capacity and energy density than existing analogues.
RUDN scientists have clarified the model for calculating the probability that space objects may encounter. Classical models do not take into account the real shape and orientation of objects -it seemed that this increases the calculated probability several times. The results are published in the journal Cosmic Research.
RUDN University biologists proved the effectiveness of biogenic metal nanoparticles against some fungi infecting plants. The nanoparticles are obtained in a safe way from strawberry leaf extract.
