On May 14, 2018 at the meeting of the Academic Council was held a aceremony for awarding Doctor of Engineering Sciences, Professor of Materials Science, Yury Gogotsi, founder and director of Drexel Nanomaterials Institute, Drexel University (USA), with the title of Honored Doctor of the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute".

The ceremony was opened by the rector of the KPI named after Igor Sikorsky, Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Mikhail Zgurovsky. He spoke about the life path, outstanding scientific achievements and the weighty personal contribution of Yuri Gogotsi to the development of scientific and educational cooperation of the KPI named after Igor Sikorsky with the Drexel Nanomaterials Institute, Drexel University (USA).

Yury Georgievich Gogotsi was born in 1961 in the Kyiv family of the famous Ukrainian scientist Professor George Gogotsi. He is related with the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" not only as a scientist, but also as its graduate - in 1984 Yury Gogotsi graduated from the Faculty of Engineering and Physics of the KPI, the Department of High-Temperature Materials and Powder Metallurgy, and two years later here he became a Ph.D. Candidate of Science in Physical Chemistry (he worked at the Department of Physical Chemistry of the Chemical and Technological Faculty under the supervision of Professor Vladimir Lavrenko). By the way, members of the family of Yuri Gogotsi - his father and brother, who attended the ceremony, also at various times graduated from the KPI.

However, Yuri Gogotsi worked and studied not only in the KPI. In his scientific biography there are also pages related to Frantsevich Institute of Problems of Materials Science NAS of Ukraine, where in 1995 he received a Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) degree in Materials Engineering from the National Academy of Sciences in Ukraine. Notable landmarks on his research path were also internships and work at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany), the Tokyo Technical University (Japan), the University of Oslo (Norway), the University of Tubingen (Germany) and the Illinois University in Chicago (USA). Since 2003 he is Professor of Materials Science, Honored Professor of Drexel University in Philadelphia (USA), in which he founded Nanomaterials Institute.

Professor Gogotsi and his colleagues synthesized and studied a large family of fundamentally new two-dimensional nanomaterials - MXenes (MXenes - two-dimensional carbides and nitrides of transition metals - new materials with new properties that were not known before and which can become the basis for storing electrical energy and making new electronic devices). He developed a general approach to the synthesis of porous and low-dimensional materials using selective extraction of elements / components that can be used to create nanoporous carbon, carbon nanotubes, graphene, 2D carbides, etc. In addition, Professor Gogotsi discovered and described new forms of carbon - conical and polygon crystals. Yury Gogotsi also discovered a new metastable phase of silicon. For the first time, the presence and anomalously slow progress of water in carbon nanotubes was demonstrated by electron microscopy and others.

After the Honorary Doctorate award, Professor Gogotsi addressed the audience with a short nomination lecture on the past and prospects for the development of the KPI named after Igor Sikorsky as the leading institution of higher technical education in Ukraine.

MXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported

MXene gas sensorsMXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported that sniff out chemicals in the air to warn us about everything from fires to carbon monoxide to drunk drivers to explosive devices hidden in luggage have improved so much that they can even detect diseases on a person’s breath. Researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have made a discovery that could make our best “chemical noses” even more sensitive.
