Scientific group of the Chair of crystallography headed by prof. Oleg Sydra received a new type of nanotubes. Its structure contains unique uranyl sulfate [(UO2)6(SO4)10]8− nanotubules templated by protonated N-phenylglycine (C6H5NH2CH2COOH)+. Their internal diameter is 1.4 nm.The results of the research, supported by the Russian Science Foundation, are published in the journal Nanomaterials http://www.mdpi.com/2079-4991/8/4/216.
Today have been defended the first works for the degree of Ph.D. SPbSU, Geology (Ph.D. SPbSU, Earth Sciences): E.S. Zhitova (Elena Zhitova) «Crystal Chemistry of Natural Layered Double Hydroxides»; A.S. Pakhomova (Anna Pakhomova) «Crystal Chemistry of Natural and Synthetic Titanium and Molybdenum Oxocompounds». Scientific supervisor – Sergey V. Krivovichev, Prof. Dr. Chairman, Department of Crystallography. Crystal structure investigations have been prepared on the equipment of SPbSU Research Centre for X-ray Diffraction Studies.
