Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:UAV-mobile geophysical complex for oil and gas exploration and productionNSU developed a UAV-mobile complex for geophysical research. It uses a high-frequency and highly sensitive vector magnetometer, gamma-spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, which creates a high-precision description of the depth of occurrence and morphology of magnetic anomaly with the size of up to tens of centimeters and less. Due to this, the costs of exploration are significantly, often more than 10 times lower than using conventional methods.

The obtained product is highly active and stable for long period storage (in solution or lyophilised). The features of this novel product are, certainly related to a novel domain organization and architecture not yet described for other collagenases
uacoopera posted this:DNA Barcodes – DNA authentication mark (traceability and identification of food products)The present invention consists on the development and application of "molecular tags" or “molecular barcoded labels”, of easy synthesis and production in large quantities. These labels are of simple application, invisible to the naked eye and of rapid detection using low cost equipments and reagents typically used for molecular biology. Basically, the labels consist of chimerical molecules of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and the detection and read of these molecules do not depend on sequencing approaches. The information in these labels can be accessed in a similar way as it is done for most common barcoded systems.
Universitat de València posted this:New method for the synthesis of inert metallic nanoparticlesThe most remarkable advantages provided by this technology are: • Rapidity of the metallic nanoparticle synthetic method, as it consists of only one step. • Efficiency, since size, shape and concentration of nanoparticles are controlled, as well as, their production in organic or inorganic soluble solution. • Reduced production costs, as high temperatures are required by other alternative laser ablation methods.
Universitat de València posted this:New method for the production of metallic oxides with spinel structureThis procedure is faster, with lower energy consumption and generates purer spinels than known methods for spinel production. With this invention, it’s possible to provide new methods for obtaining spinels or other mixed oxides with a higher processability and versatility than those existing to date, allowing also for obtaining new spinels and removing the need for extremely costly phases in time or energy, including milling or heating at temperatures up to 1200ºC.
Universitat de València posted this:Method for producing nanocorundumResearchers from Geology Department of University of Valencia have developed a novel method for producing corundum of low crystallinity (nanocorundum) using natural or synthetic commodities in solid state, without pre-treatment. The process of the invention makes it possible to obtain a product with a nanocrystalline nature, composed of tabular- or plate-shaped primary nanoparticles in porous microcrystalline aggregates, which facilitates the subsequent disaggregation process thereof into powders that have an immediate application as ultra-fine abrasives and as loads (or fillers) in plastics or other types of materials. This characteristic represents a significant advantage of the product of the invention, since compact corundum is a hard, difficult-to-grind material.

However, all of them have serious disadvantatges. 1) with software that uses atom-atom potentials: Advantages: fast and capable of working with large molecules. Disadvantages: the "blind tests" carried out by the "Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre" are giving a 50% maximum success in the predictions. 2) with software based on DFT calculations: Advantages: good results Disadvantages: they are computationally very slow, so they are only used for very simple molecules compared with drug molecules. In addition, they have errors predicting van der Waals interactions and weak hydrogen bridges if not corrected empirically. 3) with software using ad hoc potentials for each molecule obtained from systematic exploration of the surface potential of intermolecular interactions: Advantages: efficient and faster. Disadvantages: some potentials should be calculated for each molecule studied, which are complex and slow, and is not general. The approach presented here is new and unique because the potential Pixel has never been used before for drawing polymorphic predictions and it has shown to present the advantages of all the alternatives combined. This is the first research group which has brought the potential Pixel to this level of calculation. The potential calculations and the applicability of the methode based on pixels have the same quality that the sophisticated ab initio based potential calculations. Besides, this is much faster than DFT (Functional-Based Theory)-based and ad hoc potentials ..
