Scientists warn: Siberian pine forests may replace larch

The team of researchers of Siberian Federal University and the Sukachev Institute of Forest of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences studied the internal mechanisms for controlling the evaporation of water by Siberian larch and Scots pine. The study results are published in the Journal of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology.

SibFU scientists together with their colleagues from Mahatma Gandhi University (India) developed a nanocomposite material that is better at shielding electromagnetic noise than metal

A Russian-Indian team of scientists has developed a nanocomposite material effective at shielding electromagnetic noise. Nanoparticles-based composites blend using multiwalled carbon nanotubes as conducting filler is two times more effective than conventional metal-based shielding materials. TASS: Science & Space portal reported on the development.

SibFU Researchers Develop a Biosensor Enhanced with Gold Nanoparticles for Express Diagnostics of Stress and Toxicological Pollution

A group of researchers is in the process of developing a highly sensitive biosensor designed to detect toxic substances using bioluminescent inhibitory analysis as well as to monitor a biomarker for indicating stress and cancer, namely heat shock proteins 90 (Hsp90). The work is carried out at the School of Fundamental Biology and Biotechnology, Siberian Federal University, Krasnoyarsk, under the supervision of Dr. Rajeev Ranjan (India), postdoctoral researcher and senior researcher at the laboratory of bioluminescent biotechnology, and Dr. Valentina Kratasyuk, chair of biophysics (School of Fundamental Biology and Biotechnology SibFU) and leading researcher at the laboratory of bioluminescent biotechnology.

SibFU Scientists Discover the Most Health-beneficial Fish in the World

SibFU researchers together with their colleagues from Institute of Biophysics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences proved that boganida char (Salvelinus boganidae), which is endemic to the lakes of Khatanga rvier basin and the lakes of Norilka-Pyasino system, has a record level of Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids among all known wild fish species.

Scientists Studied the Properties of Lead-Manganese Orthoborate, a Ferromagnetic Material

A team from Kirensky Institute of Physics, Federal Research Center KSC SB RAS (IP SB RAS) together with their colleagues from Siberian Federal University (SFU) studied the properties of the ferromagnetic material PbMnBO4. They found out that the unique magnetic and thermal characteristics of this compound are determined by its specific magnetic structure. The work was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, and its results were published in the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials.

Scientists Discovered Stability in Hybrid Photoelectric Nanomaterials

A team of Siberian scientists together with foreign colleagues calculated the parameters that influence the intensity of reaction between carbon nanotubes and phthalocyanines — complex nitrogen-containing compounds. Hybrid constructions based on them are considered as new materials for solar cell batteries, sensors, and optic devices. The work was published in the Applied Surface Science journal.
