Colloquia - 152 Life Sciences
For more than half a century it was assumed that the reaction of a solid explosive decomposition could be described by a simple Arrhenius kinetic law. Our research group of Solid State Reaction Kinetics of Kemerovo State University found out that the explosion of silver and lead azides stimulated... read more

Colloquia - 152 Life Sciences
Enyne metathesis is a process by which alkenes and alkynes are merged together with the catalytic action of metal alkylidene complexes to form 1,3-dienes. In light of developing new eneyne metathesis, more extended unsaturation was incorporated into the yne-component such that the enyne metathesis... read more

Colloquia - LS 152
Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs, or nanocrystals), are very bright chromophores that possess unlimited potentials in alternative energy generation and for biological sensing and imaging applications. Our group has made advances in the synthesis QDs to produce 100% efficient emitters; furthermore,... read more
