Sunlight Stimulates Microbial Respiration of Carbon in Surface Waters

The Science Sunlight and microbes found in Arctic waters interact to degrade dissolved organic carbon (DOC) that is flushed from thawing Arctic permafrost soils into...
Nanofibers

“Living bandages”: NUST MISIS Scientists Develop Biocompatible Anti-burn Nanofibers

A group of NUST MISIS’s young scientists, for the very first time in Russia, has presented a new therapeutic material based on nanofibers made of polycaprolactone modified with a thin-film antibacterial...
Piezoelectrics

Today`s Highest Quality Composite-Piezoelectric Developed at NUST MISIS

Piezoelectrics are one of the world`s most amazing materials. It is possible to literally squeeze electricity from them. That is, an electric charge appears at the time of the material`s compression (or stretching)....
