Russian metallurgists proposed to dissolve the ash waste of thermal power stations with hydrochloric acid at high pressure. The resulting compounds can be used for water treatment at water utilities and thermal power stations themselves. The method has already shown effective deposition of impurities in water from Moskva river. The description of the technology is published by scientists from NUST MISIS and a number of other universities in Journal Cleaner Production. The research is funded Russian science Foundation under the Presidential Program for Research Projects.
A team of NUST MISIS students developed a “phantom” of the human brain, i.e. a hydrogel model with structural and mechanical similarity to a real organ. “Fantomozg” (en: Phantombrain) will allow students and neurosurgeons to study the pathological anatomy of tissues and train in complicated surgical manipulations.
Group of scientists from NUST MISIS developed a ceramic material with the highest melting point among currently known compounds. Due to the unique combination of physical, mechanical and thermal properties, the material is promising for use in the most heat-loaded components of aircraft, such as nose fairings, jet engines and sharp front edges of wings operating at temperatures above 2000 °C. The results are published in Ceramics International.
Team of Scientists from NUST MISIS and Merzhanov Institute of Structural Macrokinetics and Materials Science developed a technology that would eliminate the use of toxic beryllium powder in the production of bronze for use in microelectronics and high-precision sensors, such as motion and vibration sensors. The article is published in Journal of Alloys and Compounds.
Scientists from NUST MISIS and Gamalei Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology found a way to increase the survival efficiency of skull polymer implants by an average of
Scientists from NUST MISIS developed a bioactive coating for titanium implants that can completely destroy bacteria. Its special porous structure with bioactive components in its composition would accelerate the implant’s survival, and the combinatorial action of active oxygen forms and silver ions will ensure the effective destruction of various bacterial strains. An article about the development is published in the international journal Applied Surface Science.
Scientists from NUST MISIS (Russia) together with colleagues from Sweden, Hungary and USA found a way to manufacture stable qubits that would operate at room temperature, in contrast to the majority of existing analogues. This opens up new prospects for creating a quantum computer. Moreover, the results of the research can already be used to create high-accuracy magnetometers, biosensors and new quantum Internet technologies. The article is published in Nature Communications.
International group of Russian and Japanese scientists developed a material that will significantly increase the recording density in data storage devices, such as SSDs and flash drives. Among the main advantages of the material is the absence of rewrite limit, which will allow implementing new devices for Big Data processes. The article on the research is published in Advanced Materials.
A Neutrophil is a Liposome’s friend: NUST MISIS Scientists Discover a New Factor of the Effective Drug Delivery to Tumors
The scientific team of the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Biomedical Nanomaterials has conducted an intravital (on the living tissue) study of the mechanism of targeted drug delivery to malignant tumors using liposomes. It turned out that the immune cells of the body neutrophils increase the efficiency of drug delivery to the tumor by 30%. The results have been published in the international scientific journal ACS Nano.
A helicopter from a printer: Russian scientists “print” a large-sized case of a helicopter engine for the first time
The internal engine body of the Russian helicopter VK-2500, completely created by the method of selective laser melting, is presented at the stand of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation at the Open Innovations forum in Skolkovo. The use of additive technologies for engine manufacturing has reduced the manufacturing time to 14 days. Developers: NUST MISIS and St. Petersburg State Marine Technical University (SMTU).
