A researcher from the Polish Academy of Sciences is a co-author of a discovery in the field of chemistry concerning aromaticity, described in the prestigious journal Nature. The discovery may revolutionise the production of fertilizers, scientists claim.
An important part of the Hard Capture System (HCS) that ensures the safety of astronauts has been developed in Poland. The purpose of the system is to provide a rigid connection between structures in order to allow for a pressurized passageway between two spacecrafts, SENER Polska reports. Its engineers developed the technology.
Spent coffee grounds have a very high calorific value and contain a large amount of water, which is why they are great as additives to clay in the production process of porous ceramic materials with thermal insulation properties. Dr. Ewelina Kłosek-Wawrzyn from AGH UST is working on the optimisation of production of such materials. The first test results are very promising, the university reports.
Russia has a lot of experience in cyber warfare, and disinformation war is planned for a long time. The West must learn to wield this weapon better. What we needed is training the public to recognise disinformation and create good systems to detect the source of information, says Dr. Aleksandra Przegalińska, a professor at the Kozminski University.
A solution that can serve as non-invasive support for medical diagnosis of gastrointestinal diseases has been developed. It is the result of the work of scientists from the Warsaw University of Technology and the Poznan University of Medical Sciences, who analysed the acoustic activity of the gastrointestinal tract.
Bioactive nanoparticle composites applied in the form of a permanent coating eliminate viruses, bacteria and fungi. This method of protecting the sterility of places exposed to the spread of microorganisms has been proposed by a researcher from the Warsaw University of Technology.
