Периодическую таблицу Менделеева опять улучшили: наночастицы пятивалентного плутония
Соединения шестивалентного плутония в щелочной среде могут привести к кристаллизации фазы (NH4)PuO2CO3, которая стабильна в течение нескольких месяцев и содержит пятивалентный плутоний. Получение новой фазы пятивалентного плутония фундаментально интересно и открывает новые возможности в разработке более эффективных технологий переработки радиоактивных отходов.

Технонано

Технопредпринимательство - идея, которая принесет свои плоды при бережном культивировании и взращивании. И наша наноолимпиада, и Наноград от Школьной Лиги РОСНАНО, и проект Стемфорд, и другие замечательные инициативы - важные шаги на пути реализации этой и других идей, связанных с развитием новых высоких технологий в нашей стране и привлечением молодых талантов в эту вполне стратегическую область. Ниже приведен небольшой опрос, который позволит и нам, и вам понять, а что все же значит этот модный термин, и какова его суть.

Технопредпринимательство на марше

Мы традиционно просим вас высказать свои краткие суждения по вопросу технопредпринимательства и проектной деятельности школьников. Для нас очевидно, что под технопредпринимательством и под проектной деятельностью школьников каждый понимает свое, но нам интересно ваше мнение, заодно вы сможете увидеть по мере прохождения опроса, насколько оно совпадает или отличается от мнения остальных. Ждем ваших ответов!

О наноолимпиаде замолвите слово...

Прошла XII Всероссийская олимпиада "Нанотехнологии - прорыв в Будущее!" Мы надеемся, что нам для улучшения организации последующих наноолимпиад поможет электронное анкетирование. Мы ждем Ваших замечаний, пожеланий, предложений. Спасибо заранее!
