RUDN University scientists participated in the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018)

On the 25 - 28 of February 2018 in Houston, USA, was held the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) - the largest international industrial and scientific event in the field of creation and application of various technologies of the oil refining industry.

On the 25 — 28 of February 2018 in Houston, USA, was held the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) — the largest international industrial and scientific event in the field of creation and application of various technologies of the oil refining industry.

GOPE-2018 aimed to join the scientific community working on various aspects of research and development to promote the exchange of ideas across a wide range of disciplines, including significant advancement and challenges in the energy sector — gas, oil, coal and fuel engineering. Prospects for the development of the oil and gas industry are mainly associated with the wide manufacturing application of advanced technologies and equipment to improve the efficiency of technological processes, their economy, reliability and safety.

This year the conference attracted more than 150 scientists working in the fields of gas, oil, coal and fuel engineering from the USA, the Netherlands, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Australia, Singapore, China. During the work of the conference were presented more than 100 reports. In particular, the conference was attended by representatives of fuel corporations and universities: Schlumberger, Davis L. Ford & Associates Nalco Champion, University of Maryland (129 QS World University Rankings), Louisiana State University (USA), University of Edinburgh (23 QS World University Rankings, United Kingdom), Petro China Southwest Oil and Gas Field Company, China University of Petroleum, University of Houston (USA), etc.

Jointly with representative of A.V. Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis of Russian Academy of Sciences (TIPS RAS) was presented report “Peculiarities of hydrocarbons transformation of benzene and adamantane range in the conditions of acid catalysis”. The report was devoted to the description of intramolecular reorganizations and displacements in the mechanism of isomerization reactions of hydrocarbons of the adamantane series.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Dentists from RUDN University Presented a New Classification of Root Canal Shape Changes

Individual characteristics of the shape and cross-section of the root canal are one of the main issues for dentists. When treating a root canal, a doctor needs to properly clean it, fill it, and carry out a rebuilding procedure so that a canal is sealed. The first stage of endodontic treatment requires detailed knowledge of root canal anatomy. A team of dentists from RUDN University studied and classified various changes in root canal shapes. The new classification will help doctors avoid diagnostic errors, better select their tools, and treat patients more efficiently.

A chemist from RUDN developed a green catalyst for pharmaceutical and industrial chemistr

Many production facilities (e.g. plastic manufacturers, pharma companies, and others) use nanocatalysts that contain palladium—an expensive component that is not sustainably produced. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to reduce palladium consumption and to make its manufacture more eco-friendly. He developed a catalyst based on a substance that comes from plant waste. Using his invention, manufacturers could cut palladium consumption in half. Moreover, new catalysts can be reused multiple times without any decrease in efficiency.
