MOSCOW, Oct. 19 — RIA Novosti. Awarded the International Prize in Nanotechnology Rusnanopize 2011 became scientific director of the Institute for Problems of Chemical and Energetic Technologies, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Academician Gennady Sakovich, reported at the International Forum on Nanotechnology RUSNANOTECH-2011.
Prize awarded Sakovitch in "nanomaterials" for the development of production technology of functional nanoscale synthetic diamonds from carbon molecules of explosives at their detonation.
Nanotechnology — the modern technology of a substance at the level of individual atoms
Designed Sakovitch technology has no analogues in the world, the report says. Nanodiamonds have unique functional properties and are used in particular for the production of wear-resistant metal coatings for machinery parts, increased tool life.
Award symbol and a memorial award will also receive a diploma of "Federal Research and Production Center" Altai "(Bijsk) for the implementation of development Sakovich in mass production.
Scientific and Production Association "Altai" and the Institute of Hydrodynamics SB RAS (Novosibirsk) in 1982, started the research on the synthesis of diamonds directly from the carbon atoms of the molecules of explosives at the request of the Ministry of Machine Building of the USSR. The need for such studies was due to the rapid development of the engineering industry of the USSR, which required an increase in production and the development of methods for producing synthetic industrial diamonds.
Following the publication of the first results of research in 1984, it became clear that a new method of synthesis drawn economically viable and produces nano-sized diamonds with a number of new features. The decision of the Ministry of all the developments have been translated into the category of private and NGO "Altai" started to build an industrial technology. In 1985, at the facilities of "Altai" was created robotic production of nanoscale diamond at the same time actively continued study of their unique properties.
Industrial production of nanodiamonds and their delivery to the enterprise of the Ministry of Machine Building began in 1986.
To date, the industrial capacity of FNPC "Altai" organized industrial production of 10 kinds of products on the basis of functional nano-sized diamonds, including for exports to the industrialized countries of the world.
International Prize in Nanotechnology Rusnanoprize, established a state corporation (now JSC) "RUSNANO", from 2009, is awarded for scientific and technological development, inventions and their introduction into mass production.
Award Ceremony, the size of which this year amounted to three million rubles will be held during the forum RUSNANOTECH-2011, which will be held in Moscow from 26 to 28 October.
