 International Nanotechnology Award RUSNANOPRIZE 2013, at International Forum Open Innovations, Moscow, Russia,November 1st, 2013

Rus На русском Eng In English

The Prize is awarded to researchers, scientists and developers (up to three people) being the authors of scientific-technological discovery or discoveries in the field of nanotechnologies, and to the company being the first to apply the discovery (discoveries) to mass production with the annual turnover of at least $10 million and reached business success through the application of the discovery (discoveries).

 RUSNANOPRIZE 2013 laureate prof. Robert S. Langer, David H. Koch Institute, MIT, USAThe RUSNANOPRIZE International Nanotechnology Prize Committee awarded the winners of the 2013 prize, in the field of nanomaterials and surface modification. This year prize goes to Massachusetts Institute of Technology Institute Professor Robert Langer and Harvard Medical School Professor Omid Farokhzad for the development and industrialization of nanoparticle technologies for medical applications.

Prof. Langer and Prof. Farokhzad have created combined nanoparticles, the surfaces of which are covered with biological ligands, i.e. molecules that recognize specific targets in the body, for example, the surface of cancer cells. The interior of the nanoparticles is composed of biologically inert polymer which binds the active substance, for example docetaxel, which is traditionally used in chemotherapy. These particles may circulate for a long time and be retained in the blood, and so they accumulate only around the tumor cells. Based on this technology, in particular, drugs have been created for the treatment of brain tumors, which are difficult to treat with traditional methods.

Prof. Omid Farokhzad, M.D. Associate Professor Brigham and Women's Hospital Harvard Medical SchoolThe winning research is a junction between biotechnology and material science. Prof. Langer’s research has laid foundation for new developments in the field of biomaterials as well as for applying nanomaterials in medicine and biology. Aside from his research in bio-compatible polymers for drug delivery systems with controlled release and synthetic polymers for tissue engineering, Prof. Langer has pioneered creating many other new types of biomaterials, like shape-memory polymers and materials with controlled surface properties.

RUSNANOPRIZE 2013 award was also given to US-based BIND Therapeutics Inc. for the successful commercial application of Prof. Langer’s and Prof. Farokhzad’s research, developing Accurins™ a new class of highly selective targeted and programmable therapeutics. 

RUSNANOPRIZE is established to promote Science and Business Integration, Public Awareness of the Achievements in the Nanotechnology Area, International Cooperation, Acknowledgement of the Role of Scientists and Manufacturers.

International RUSNANOPRIZE 2013 Award Committee is represented by famous scientists and innovation businessman, who are generally acknowledged to have achieved outstanding results in the field of this year Prize - nanomaterials and surface modification. This year prof. Yury Gogotsi, Director of the A. J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute, distinguished chair and professor, Drexel University (USA), also was invited to International Prize Award Committee

Financial rewards, prize symbols and honorary diploma of the Prize are awarded to inventors, scientists and developers, the authors of the R&D projects or technologies implemented into production. The company that has achieved some significant commercial success due to the implementation of these technologies is awarded with an honorary diploma and a glass ball, which is a RUSNANOPRIZE symbol.

The RUSNANOPRIZE 2013 award ceremony was held on November 1 in Moscow as part of the Open Innovations Forum.

ICEnSM 2017. 2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials, Shenzhen, China, November 18-21, 2017

The First International Conference on Energy Storage Materials Professor Yury Gogotsi from Drexel University, USA, has won the 2017 Energy Storage Materials Award, which is awarded by the journal Energy Storage Materials. The Award will be presented to Professor Gogotsi at the ICEnSM 2017 (2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials), which will be held in Shenzhen, China, on Nov. 18-21, 2017.

 
Congratulations to professor Yury Gogotsi for being named 2017 Highly Cited Researcher in two categories!

altHis research ranks among the top 1% most cited works in his field and during its year of publication, earning the mark of exceptional impact. This year is the first time Yury Gogotsi made this list in two categories - Materials Science and Chemistry.

 
Nanodiamonds Can Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds in the electrolyte solution of lithium ion batteries prevent the formation of dendrites that cause runaway heat-up resulting in fires. Source: Drexel University and Tsinghua UniversityScientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential. 

 
Researcers from Drexel University have developed a recipe that can turn electrolyte solution into a safeguard against the chemical process that leads to battery-related disasters

Recipe for Safer Batteries — Just Add DiamondsResearchers described a process by which nanodiamonds — tiny diamond particles 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair — curtail the electrochemical deposition, called plating, that can lead to hazardous short-circuiting of lithium ion batteries.
