The finale of the CUP MISIS CASE championship for school children and students, which attracted over 1500 participants from 60 universities and schools from 42 Russian regions, was recently held at NUST MISIS. Participants were given real business cases, provided by Novolipetsk Steel, the 2018 championship’s general partner, to solve. Teams from Moscow, Novotroitsk, Buguruslan, and Kolomna were named the championship’s winners.
Silicon Paradox: NUST MISIS Scientists Discover “Impossible” Material according to the Laws of Modern Chemistry
An international team of physicists and materials scientists from NUST MISIS, Bayerisches Geoinstitut (Germany), Linkoping University (Sweden), and the California Institute of Technology (U.S.) has discovered an “impossible” modification of silica-coesite-IV and coasite-V materials, which shouldn’t exist if modern laws of Chemistry are correct. Their structure is an exception to the generally accepted rules for the formation of chemical bonds in inorganic materials formulated by Linus Pauling, who won the 1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for that discovery. The research results were published in the international scientific journal Nature Communications on November 15th, 2018.
