Participation in the 1st International Conference on Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis of Chemical Reactions (RKMC-2018)

Participation in the 1st International Conference on Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis of Chemical Reactions (RKMC-2018)

June 6-9, 2018 in Mercure Budapest Buda, Hungary, the 1st International Conference on Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis of Chemical Reactions (RKMC-2018) was held.

RKMC was supported by the journal Reaction Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis brought together scientists interested in all areas related to the preparation and use of catalysts. The conference facilitated an open exchange of ideas between the participants and ensured a friendly, mostly informal atmosphere for the discussion of lecture and poster presentations. More than 100 participants from 27 countries took part in the conference. Key topics presented at the conference by other participants concerned mainly electro-photo-catalytic heterogeneous reactions that can underlie photosynthetic devices, the results of in situ heterogeneous reactions, structural changes in the surface accompanying the reactions were also discussed; discussed the problems of the formation of nanoparticles with the specified composition and properties, etc. Particular attention should be paid to key speakers: Susannah Scott, The Scott Group, University of California Santa Barbara, USA

  • Jiří Čejka, J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic Czech Republic
  • Leonarda Francesca Liotta, Italian National Research Council Institute of Nanostructured Materials ISMN Italy
  • Rafael Luque, Department of Organic Chemistry Nanoscale Chemistry & Biomass/Waste Valorisation Group University of Cordoba, Spain

The program of the event allowed scientists from all over the world to discuss current trends in the development of new materials used as catalysts in various fields:

  • T1: Catalysts in sustainable and green chemistry
  • T2: Addressing the fundamentals: basic concepts in catalysis science
  • T3: Combustion kinetics and catalysis
  • T4: Catalytic processes in industry
  • T5: Oscillations and other exotic kinetic phenomena

Leading researchers from around the world attended The RKMC 2018 conference and presented papers and shared valuable experiences with other scientists, with particular emphasis on the following aspects:

  • Catalysts in stable and green chemistry
  • Catalytic solutions for energy-related tasks
  • Polymers and catalysis
  • Light catalysts
  • Production and use of hydrogen
  • Catalytic transformations based on glycerol
  • Magnetically separable catalysts
  • The solution of the fundamental principles: the basic concepts in the science of catalysis
  • Industrial aspects of catalytic phenomena
  • Nanoparticle catalyst
  • Kinetics of combustion and catalysis
  • Chemical kinetics in solution, gas or solid phases
  • Study of reaction mechanisms
  • Organocatalysis
  • Oscillations and other exotic kinetic phenomena

In 2017, RUDN University scientists constructed a new explicit second-order precision difference scheme using modern computer algebra methods for 2-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations (NSE) [1]. This year, our mathematicians used a new scheme [2] to construct a numerical solution to the Cauchy problem with initial data (for t=0) as satisfying the continuity equation. Scientists managed to achieve previously unattainable accuracy of the continuity equation.
