The Komplast materials experiment was designed by Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center together with Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University and other Russian scientific institutes, and has been carried out by Mission Control Moscow since 1998. The purpose of this experiment is to study the complex effect of the low Earth orbit environment on samples of various spacecraft materials. On November 20, 1998 the Komplast experiment began with the launch of the first International Space Station module Zarya, or Functional Cargo Block (FGB). Eight Komplast panels with samples of materials and sensors were installed on the outer surface of FGB module. Two of eight experiment panels were retrieved during Russian extravehicular activity in February 2011 after 12 years of space exposure and were subsequently returned to Earth by Space Shuttle ''Discovery" on the STS-133/ULF-5 mission in March 2011. The article presents the results obtained from this unique long-duration experiment on board of the International Space Station. © 2015 COSPAR. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

A set of physical methods is used to study the molecular, supramolecular, and topologic structure of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) powders obtained from the gaseous phase of a monomer, tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) (C2F 4), under ultraviolet irradiation in the presence of different initiators. Morphological diversity of particles forming powders is found; the effect of technological modes on the regularities of the morphological powder structure is established. The method of nuclear magnetic resonance ( 19F NMR) of broad lines allowed detecting the difference in the rotational dynamics of fragments of macromolecular chains in samples synthesized under different conditions. © 2013 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
