Kiev, Ukraine

National Aviation University is a university located in Kiev , Ukraine. It started in 1933 when the Kyiv Aviation Institute was founded on the basis of the mechanical department of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. The University consists of 16 institutes, 2 separate faculties, 1 Aviation Academy , 3 lyceums, 6 colleges and 12 research institutes including their subdivisions and 8 departments. The university has its own center for culture and arts, medical center, library, “Aviator” newspaper and a yacht club. University also supports the State Aviation Museum. Wikipedia.

An all-inorganic, oxidatively and thermally stable, homogeneous water oxidation catalyst based on redox-active (vanadate(V)-centered) polyoxometalate ligands, Na10[Co4(H2O)2(VW 9O34)2]·35H2O (Na 101-V2, sodium salt of the polyanion 1-V2), was synthesized, thoroughly characterized and shown to catalyze water oxidation in dark and visible-light-driven conditions. This synthetic catalyst is exceptionally fast under mild conditions (TOF > 1 × 103 s-1). Under light-driven conditions using [Ru(bpy)3]2+ as a photosensitizer and persulfate as a sacrificial electron acceptor, 1-V2 exhibits higher selectivity for water oxidation versus bpy ligand oxidation, the final O2 yield by 1-V2 is twice as high as that of using [Co 4(H2O)2(PW9O34) 2]10- (1-P2), and the quantum efficiency of O2 formation at 6.0 μM 1-V2 reaches ∼68%. Multiple experimental results (e.g., UV-vis absorption, FT-IR, 51V NMR, dynamic light scattering, tetra-n-heptylammonium nitrate-toluene extraction, effect of pH, buffer, and buffer concentration, etc.) confirm that the polyanion unit (1-V2) itself is the dominant active catalyst and not Co2+(aq) or cobalt oxide. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

The research analysis of interaction artificial retaining constructions with a non-uniform soil basis has been performed during the reconstruction of the transport structures. The mathematical model of soil semi-space research with the use of the nonlinear theory of elasticity is developed. The results of numerous researches of stress-strain state fencing constructions of the overpass in interaction with multilayer heterogeneous half-space and surfaces under the influence of band-pass loading are represented in the current paper. © 2012 Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU) Press Technika.

Bioresource Technology

Reject water, which is the liquid fraction produced after dewatering of anaerobically digested activated sludge on the municipal wastewater treatment plants (MWWTPs), contributes up to 80% of the nitrogen and phosphorus loads to the MWWTP. It was proposed to combine the removal of nitrogen from reject water using the sequential biooxidation of NH4+ and bioreduction of NO3- with precipitation of phosphate by Fe2+ ions produced due to bioreduction of Fe3+ in iron ore. Bioreduction of NO3- decreased Fe3+ bioreduction rate in reject water from 37 to 21 mg Fe2+/L d due to competition between NO3- and Fe3+ for electron donors. Addition of acetate as electron donor increased both bioreduction rates of Fe3+ and NO3- but acetate interfered with the competition between nitrate and phosphate anions reacting with ferrous cations decreasing efficiency of the phosphate removal from reject water. The stages of denitrification and ferric bioreduction/phosphate precipitation must be performed sequentially. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

The problem of distribution of a given global resource is considered under constraints imposed from below on partial resources. It is shown that the problem lies in constructing an adequate criterion function for the optimization of the resource distribution process under resource boundedness conditions. The problem is solved by a multicriteria optimization method with the use of a nonlinear trade-off scheme. A model example is given. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc. Source

Due to the historical and political reasons, a contribution of Ukraine into the world radar development was never enough elucidated so far. This was a great misunderstanding. This paper describes some important contributions to radar that were done in Ukraine during several tens of years. The most attention is done to results of Yakov Davidovich Shirman who passed away recently. © 2014 EuMA. Source
