INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENTS OF THE INSITUTINS OF METALLURGICAL PROFILE OF THE RUSSIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES
- 1 Presidium RAS, Moscow, Russia
In the present work, examples of the successful development of new materials and technologies on the basis of fundamental research by members of the Russian Academy of Sciences are outlined. The topics include anticorrosive protective coatings based on ultrafine Zn powders; catalytic converters for vehicle exhaust gases; nanostructured stents for endovascular operations; and corrosion and wear resistant coatings and corresponding methods of plasma application. Methods have been developed for recycling of oily scale; for special electroproduction of steel for the power industry; synthesis of massive monocrystalline samples of transition metal nitrides and nanopowders of W, Pt, and Ti and their carbides and nitrides and others.
