A silver nanoparticle-based drug developed by Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) scientists and their Mexican partners has recently been tested in Mexico for the treatment of a lethal and contagious disease in shrimp — a white spot syndrome virus (WSSV). The study revealed that after administration of the drug, the survival rate of infected shrimp was 80 percent. Further, the drug might significantly help marine farmers in Mexico to fight the virus. “Shrimp form a substantial part of export in Mexico. They are supplied across the world and most of them are sent to the U.S.A. and Europe. White spot syndrome virus is a scourge for Mexican marine farmers. Its epidemic has already lasted for some years, killing millions of individuals. A visible manifestation of the virus is emerging white spots on a shrimp’s shell. An infected individual is [weakened] and dies. Humans are immune to this virus but it causes great losses in the aquaculture industry,” says Professor Alexey Pestryakov, head of the Department of Physical and Analytical Chemistry. Previously, several attempts were made to treat this disease. However, there was no effective cure. Then, one marine farm offered to test the TPU development. Argovit made of silver nanoparticles features a versatile destroying effect against viruses, bacteria, and fungi. A university partner, the Vektor-Vita company in Novosibirsk, uses the pharmaceutical to produce veterinary medications for animals and biologically active additives for humans. Scientists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA, Spain) are involved in the development of Argovit-based preparations as well. “Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are the most widely used nanomaterials in commercial products due to their beneficial antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. In the aquaculture industry, nanotechnology has been poorly applied,” says Alexey Petryakov. At first, the drug was administrated to a few juvenile shrimp infected with WSSV. The results revealed that the survival rate of WSSV-infected shrimp after silver nanoparticle-based drug administration was over 90 percent. Then, the scientists tested a larger group of infected shrimp. They were divided into subgroups, some of which received the drug and others which did not. The results revealed that the survival rate of WSSV-infected shrimps after AgNP administration was 80 percent, whereas the survival rate of untreated organisms was only 10 percent after 96 hours of infection. The scientists published their outcomes in the Chemosphere. At present, Argovit has been tested for 25 diseases. According to the authors, it has already proven its effectiveness in veterinary applications and passed clinical tests in Russia and abroad. “Our medications have all the necessary certificates and are applied in veterinary. Veterinarians use it for the treatment of viral and bacterial diseases in cattle, fur animals and pets,” says Pestryakov. “Existing antiviral drugs affect viruses indirectly, mainly increasing the patient’s immunity, not killing them directly. Argovit is aimed at killing viruses. The immunity increases too. A competitive edge of the drug is its hypoallergenicity and low toxicity in therapeutic doses. In contrast to antibiotics, it does not cause allergic reactions, stomach disorders, and other unpleasant side effects, while it kills bacteria and fungi. Argovit is an aqueous solution, 20 percent of which is a complex of silver nanoparticles with polymer stabilizer in sizes varying from 1 to 70 nanometers. Such medications are much cheaper than antibiotics and have a longer shelf life (up to two years in the refrigerator) in comparison with their counterparts.

Physicists from Tomsk Polytechnic University are creating protective titanium nitride-based coatings for shells of fuel elements (fuel rods) of nuclear reactors. Such shells can significantly reduce hydrogenation of containers in which nuclear fuel is placed, extend their service life and protect reactor from explosion like at the Fukusima radiation disaster. "In reactors nuclear fuel is laid in special "tubes" out of zirconium alloys, to form fuel rods. In the fuel rods, a nuclear reaction takes place. As a result of radiolysis of a reactor coolant - water, and also as a result of interaction of the coolant and zirconium under high temperatures hydrogen is released. Hydrogen is able to accumulate in fuel rods shells causing degradation of their mechanical properties and destruction," clarifies one of the developers, an assistant at the Department of General Physics Egor Kashkarov. According to the young scientist, the danger of interaction of zirconium and water is the higher temperature in the reactor is, the more hydrogen is released. For example, the same happened at the Fukusima-1 station in Japan: due to flooding of pumping equipment the active zone of the reactor warmed up to more than 1,200 °C, a steam-zirconium reaction proceeded swiftly and a large amount of hydrogen was released. The explosion of accumulated hydrogen was one of the biggest radiation accidents in the world. The scientific team from the TPU Department of General Physics is creating protective titanium nitride-based coatings that will be a barrier protecting zirconium fuel rods from water and hydrogen accumulation. "During tests titanium nitride has proved itself well: it has high hardness, wear resistance, heat resistance and inertia. We also found that it protects well from hydrogen penetration into the material, what is critical for nuclear energy. The coatings can reduce hydrogen penetration in zirconium alloy," adds Egor Kashkarov. The coatings on zirconium substrate are applied using two technologies: magnetron sputtering and vacuum arc deposition. The both processes are carried out on a set-up created in the university. The result is a thin film coating - no more than two microns thick. "One of the applications of the elaborating coatings out of titanium nitride is next generation reactors and thermal nuclear reactors where hydrogen impermeable coating is a pressing issue. In the next generation reactors, temperature is supposed to increase up to 400-450 °C to improve fuel burn-up efficiency. Consequently, hydrogenation of fuel rods will be here much faster. Our coatings are able to prevent it," says the developer.

A radiopharmaceutical for advanced identification of cancer, labeled with the technetium-99 isotope, is ready for the preclinical-phase trial. A radiopharmaceutical for advanced identification of cancer, labeled with the technetium-99 isotope, is ready for the preclinical-phase trial. Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University, Tomsk Research Institute of Oncology and the Institute of Biorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences have been jointly working on the development of the medication. The project is headed by chemists of the Institute of Natural Resources of Tomsk Polytechnic University and the Institute of Physics and Technology. This radiopharmaceutical has a complex structure the basis of which is a protein scaffold DARPin with the attached chelate complex, which binds the protein to the radioactive technetium-99 isotope. TPU scientists developed a non-waste technology for the production of this highly sought isotope in the medical diagnostics. 'There is a so called lock on the cancerous cell in the form of receptors and the protein contained in the medication is the key to the receptors. The key needs to be labeled in case not to be lost among numerous keys. That is the reason why the chelate complexes are essential in this process. The isotope of technetium is entrapped on this marker and is easily tightened with the help of gamma cameras. This structure of the radiopharmaceutical makes it possible to accurately determine the size of the tumor as well as its location. It is especially important in the diagnosis of small-cell cancers when cancer cells are scattered over the affected organ,' says the Head of Department of Organic Substances and Polymers Mekhman Yusubov. In 2017, TPU researchers have patented the technology for obtaining chelate complexes. 'We proposed our way to obtain chelate complexes. We use iodine as one the reagents. In general, the technology for obtaining these complexes using iodine is more effective as the yield of the final product increases and the number of stages for it obtaining is reduced. In addition, the technology is more cost-effective compared to the existing ones due to the application of cheap and environmentally friendly reagents,' Mekhman Yusubov says. According to the scientist, in the future this drug can be used for both diagnosis and treatment of cancer diseases. However, more detailed studies have to be performed. This network research project was supported by the Federal Target Program Development of Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2020 and beyond. Preclinical trials are to be completed in 2019.

The use of liquid fuel from waste will save resources and reduce the damage to the ozone layer of Earth Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University are developing a technology for obtaining liquid fuel from coal wastes for thermal power stations (TPSs). This fuel is ten times more environmentally friendly that will make it possible to resolve two problems at once: to reduce the amount of anthropogenic emissions of TPSs and efficiently dispose wastes from coal processing and beneficiation. The research team of the Department of Automation of Thermal Power Processes led by Professor Pavel Strizhak shares its outcomes. As Pavel Strizhak notes, thermal power plants generate up to 40-45% of the world's electricity. Meantime, TPSs are the sources of five contaminants which account to 90-95% of all emissions to the atmosphere such as cinder particles, sulfur oxides, nitrogen and carbon oxides as well as water vapor. Operating TPSs release carbon dioxide (CO2) which scientists consider as the main cause of the green gas effect. Besides, particles of volatile cinder released into the atmosphere may contain other compounds, in particular, heavy metals. Gaseous products of organic fuel combustion may also include toxic and carcinogenic microelements, carcinogenic hydrocarbons and other harmful substances. 'People believe the most dangerous are the emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides which, when merged with atmospheric moisture, oxidize thus forming weak solutions of sulfuric and nitrous acids. They are the main causes of acid rains. The increase of concentration of nitrogen oxides contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer which protects our planet from ultraviolet space radiation,' says Pavel Strizhak. To reduce the impact of anthropogenic factor on the environment and the amount of pollutants emitted into the atmosphere, TPU scientists suggested the production of carbon water slurry containing petrochemical (CWSP) fuel compositions out of wastes remained after coal beneficiation or oil refinery. 'They are liquid fuel compositions, 80% of which are coal-processing products. We use four groups of substances as major components: solid combustible components out of low-rank coals and coal-processing wastes, liquid combustible components, water and plasticizers (stabilizers). The resulted fuel represents a viscous mass which will further be burnt in boiler units,' says Pavel Strizhak. Each of the four components cannot be used as fuel in gross power industry, but together they form fuel that is not worse a traditional coal and its economic and environmental effect is much higher. The outcomes of the study have been recently published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials. The study compares the effect of combustion of hard coal and carbon water slurry containing petrochemical fuels (CWSP) based on coal processing wastes (filter cakes), which are widespread in the world power industry. 'We burnt these two fuels at the temperature from 500 to 1000 C?. For the first time it was shown that the concentration of sulfur and nitrogen oxide is significantly lower when burning CWSP compared to traditional coals,' shares Pavel Strizhak. The output performance (ignition delay, minimum threshold ignition temperature, maximum combustion temperature) of CWSPs and coal was very similar. 'The results obtained open great opportunities for the wide use of CWSP suspensions as cheap, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly fuel compared to traditional coals. Using liquid fuels based on coal processing products the manufacturers will be able to reduce the volume of mining and development of new deposits. This, in turn, will save resources and reduce the damage to the environment,' concludes Pavel Strizhak. The development will allow coal producers to process coal beneficiation wastes and burn them directly on site, to generate power that will reduce costs for collection and transportation of hazardous wastes. The technology has been already tested at one coal production enterprise of the Kemerovo Region (the biggest coal production region of Russia - ed.).

The group theoretic construction is applied to construct a novel dynamical realization of the l-conformal Galilei group in terms of geodesic equations on the coset space. A peculiar feature of the geodesics is that all their integrals of motion, including the accelerations, are functionally independent. The analysis in the recent work [Chernyavsky and Galajinsky (2016) [35]] is extended to construct the Einstein metrics with the l-conformal Galilei isometry group. © 2016 The Author

Ostrogradsky's method allows one to construct Hamiltonian formulation for a higher derivative system. An application of this approach to the Pais-Uhlenbeck oscillator yields the Hamiltonian which is unbounded from below. This leads to the ghost problem in quantum theory. In order to avoid this nasty feature, the technique previously developed in [7] is used to construct an alternative Hamiltonian formulation for the multidimensional Pais-Uhlenbeck oscillator of arbitrary even order with distinct frequencies of oscillation. This construction is also generalized to the case of an N = 2 supersymmetric Pais-Uhlenbeck oscillator. © 2015 The Author.
