Chemist created a niobium-silica catalyst to boost petrochemical reactions

Catalyst reduces the time of alkylation reactions from several hours to just 10 minutes

08-Oct-2020

Alkylation reactions are used in the petrochemical industry to obtain high-octane number components for gasolines. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to speed this process up to 24 times. To do so, he developed a catalyst based on silica and niobium. The results of his work were published ...

Disproving the universal nature of the mercury test

Mercury test of catalysts that has been considered universal for 100 years seems to be ambiguous

26-Oct-2018

The mercury test of catalysts that has been used and considered universal for 100 years, turned out to be ambiguous. This conclusion was made by a group of scientists including a RUDN chemist. The group confirmed that the test required additional control experiments to verify its results. The ...

Nanoreactors to synthesize organic substances under visible light

A new type of photocatalysts -- nanostructures from titanium dioxide

11-Oct-2018

A RUDN chemist developed a new type of photocatalysts - nanostructures from titanium dioxide. Hollow nanocubes with ultra-thin walls act like nanoreactors and provide for 28 fold more effective organic reactions at room temperature under the influence of visible light. Traditional methods of ...

Russian and German physicists developed a mathematical model of trapped atoms and ions

18-Sep-2018

It is difficult to study processes at the level of individual atoms and ions at room temperature due to their thermal motion. It causes disturbance that is the reason for considerable inaccuracy of measurements. The main cause of observation errors is the Doppler effect. However, if the atoms are ...
