Russian physicists demonstrate inexpensive synthesis of high-melting-point carbide materials
Researchers from Skoltech and Tomsk Polytechnic University have used an unusual technique from the aerospace industry to synthesize hafnium-tantalum carbide, a hard-to-melt material for coating electrical and mechanical components that operate under extreme conditions. Inexpensive and effective, their plasma dynamic method can produce high-quality carbide both as powders and as coatings on diverse substrate...
New metrological technique uses stress for nanotomography
Researchers from Skoltech and their colleagues in Russia and Spain have reported a proof-of-concept demonstration of a new radiation-safe method for mapping the internal structure and stress distribution in samples of materials at the nanoscale, with a resolution about 100 times higher than that of the currently available techniques: X-ray and neutron tomography. The team believes that its 3D stress nanotom...
MSU chemists have found a more effective carrier for antitumor drugs
Employees of the Departments of Radiochemistry and High-Molecular Compounds of the Faculty of Chemistry of Moscow State University with colleagues from the V.N. Orekhovich Research Institute of Biomedical Chemistry investigated the antitumor activity of complexes of biocompatible microgel polysaccharide carboxymethylcellulose crosslinked with copper radionuclides. The cytotoxicity of such complexes in relat...
Botanists have described the first predatory plant with underground hunting pitchers
Botanists have described the first predatory plant with underground hunting pitchers. The species, called nepenthes bashful, grows only in the north of Borneo and hunts mainly ants. Probably, moving the pitchers underground allows this plant not to compete with other nepenthes or survive droughts.Nepenthes (Nepenthes) are one of the most famous hish plants. They are easily recognized by their characteristic...
Most schools in the world are poorly equipped to provide a healthy and inclusive learning environment
The number of schools without basic water, sanitation and hygiene services is constantly decreasing, but there is still a deep inequality in this indicator between countries and even within them. Schoolchildren in the least developed countries suffer the most. This is stated in a joint report published on Thursday by UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO). "A lot of children attend schools where th...
