    The delegation of the Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS worked in Novosibirsk at the IX International Forum of Technological Development TECHNOPROM-2022. As a result, a scientific and technical cooperation agreement was signed with the Siberian Federal Scientific Center for Agrobiotechnology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as promising contacts were established with large Russian companies, such as Nornickel, Gazprom, medical, construction, and shipbuilding companies.

  • Tomsk scientists have developed a mathematical model that will help optimize the synthesis of complex metal compounds

    23 jun 2022

    Scientists of the Tomsk Scientific Center of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Oleg Lapshin and Oksana Ivanova proposed a mathematical model for studying two-step mechanochemical synthesis of inorganic substances in wave combustion mode. This model, published in the high-ranking journal Powder Technology, will help find optimal modes of production of expensive composites and significantly develop a new macrokinetic theory.

  • 6-10-2022   Some everyday materials have memories, and now they can be erased Some solid materials have a memory of how they have previously been stretched out, which impacts how they respond to these kinds of deformations in the future. A new study lends insight into memory formation in the foams and emulsions common in food products and pharmaceuticals and provides a new method to erase this memory, which could guide how materials are prepared for future use.
  • 6-10-2022   Cleaner, more cost-effective way to make useful industrial chemicals A team of researchers has developed a new, ecologically sensitive way to produce these nanocrystals through a process called high-humidity shaker aging. The new technique represents an advance over existing methods in that it costs less, uses less water, and eliminates the need for toxic solvents, all while producing higher yields.
  • 6-10-2022   Glass microspheres won't save Arctic sea ice A proposal to cover Arctic sea ice with layers of tiny hollow glass spheres about the thickness of one human hair would actually accelerate sea-ice loss and warm the climate rather than creating thick ice and lowering the temperature as proponents claim. Sea ice, by reflecting the majority of the sun's energy back to space, helps regulate ocean and air temperatures and influences ocean circulation. Its area and thickness is of critical importance to Earth's climate.
  • 6-10-2022   RNA origami enables applications in synthetic biology Synthetic biology strives to achieve robust control of biological processes in order to create designer organisms for a variety of industrial, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications. Researchers have developed RNA origami sponges and CRISPR-based regulators for advanced genetic control of enzymatic pathways in microorganisms to improve production of valuable biochemicals.
  • 5-10-2022   Seaweed-based battery powers confidence in sustainable energy storage A team uses nanomaterials made from seaweed to create a strong battery separator, paving the way for greener and more efficient energy storage.
  • 5-10-2022   Astronomers find a 'cataclysmic' pair of stars with the shortest orbit yet Astronomers have discovered a stellar binary, or pair of stars, with an extremely short orbit, appearing to circle each other every 51 minutes. The system seems to be one of a rare class of binaries known as a 'cataclysmic variable,' in which a star similar to our sun orbits tightly around a white dwarf - a hot, dense core of a burned-out star.
