New Copper Alloy Without Toxic Components

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.

Implants Will Survive Up to 6 Times More Effectively

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 4-6 times doping it with proteins. This means that the patient would recover faster, and in the future the newly grown bone would be able to withstand the same loads as before the operation. An article about the development is published in Polymer Testing.

Scientists Developed Bioactive Material with Combinatory Antibacterial Effect

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.
