In June-August 2021, Artem Shevchenko, a student of the Laboratory of Coordination Chemistry, underwent a scientific internship at the Laboratory of Prof. Robert Dinnebier at the Institute for Solid State Research (Max Planck Institute Für Festkörperforschung, Stuttgart, Germany). The objective of the internship was to master the methods of variable temperature powder X-ray diffraction to study the structural changes of substances upon heating.

X National Conference on Crystal Chemistry
The X National Crystal Chemical Conference was held 5-9 July in the Elbrus region (Kabardino-Balkarian Republic). Within the framework of the conference, plenary, oral and poster presentations were presented on organic, inorganic crystal chemistry, crystal chemistry of coordination and organometallic compounds, crystal chemical aspects of materials science, and structural studies using synchrotron and neutron radiation. Presentations of modern X-ray equipment from leading manufacturers Bruker and Rigaku – Oxford Diffraction took place.
The team of the Laboratory of Coordination Chemistry took an active part in the conference – Tsymbarenko D.M., Grebenyuk D.I. and Gashigullin R.A. presented oral and poster presentations. By the decision of the organizing committee of the conference, the report of Gashigullin R.A. was awarded the diploma “For the best poster presentation”.

All-Russian Science festival NAUKA 0+
The All-Russian Science Festival was held in Moscow from October 12 to 14, 2018. This event, which is attended by leading research centers and laboratories from various industries, contributes to the generation of interdisciplinary ideas and serves to popularize science. The festival included lectures by leading scientists, including lectures by acad. Yuri Oganessian “New superheavy elements in the periodic table”, prof. Artem Oganov “Computer design of new supermaterials” and prof. Vladimir Kekelidze “Challenges of the NICA megaproject” and thematic exhibitions. At the exhibition “Create new materials!” laboratory of coordination chemistry presented models of a levitating train and an electric generator based on 2nd generation high-temperature superconducting tapes and a printer with luminescent ink.
