Participation in the 2nd NANOMED workshop in Budapest, Hungary

Dec 13th, 2018

Our  ESTg member, 3 rd year PhD candidate Alzhan Baimenov has attended 2 nd NANOMED workshop “ADSORBENTS FOR REMOVAL OF HEAVY METALS. CHARACTERISATION, PERSONAL CARE AND WATER TREATMENT” in the framework of HORIZON 2020 Program Nanoporous and Nanostructured Materials for Medical Applications (NanoMed) project
at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary. On the first day of the workshop, a round table was organized where the reports of the research performed by the project partners were evaluated and the work plan for the next year was discussed. On the second day, a mini-conference was held, where results of the conducted research were presented by both senior scientists and young researchers. Alzhan made an oral presentation entitled “Macroporous cryogel composites for removal of heavy metals from aqueous and biological media”.

Traineeship at the Universidad de Alicante, Spain #ESTglife

Nov 21st, 2018
Our  ESTg member, Aliya Kudarova was participating in a 1-month traineeship in the framework of Nanoporous and Nanostructured Materials for Medical Applications (NanoMed) project at the Universidad de Alicante, Spain.

Aliya continued the work on the characterization of modified and non-modified forms of zeolite by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). Aliya performed the synthesis of modified form of zeolites from the raw material on site.

Aliya completed the measurements of iodide removal from water solutions under different conditions on UV-VIS spectrophotometer. 

New paper about top soil physical and chemical properties in Kazakhstan across a north-south gradient was published in Scientific Data Journal with IF=5.305

Nov 19th, 2018

Independent of the season, SOC significantly differed among soil types. The distribution of total nitrogen content among our sampling sites followed a similar pattern as SOC, with significant differences between soil types occurring in northern, central and southern Kazakhstan. The results of the study are published in SCIENTIFIC DATA | 5:180242 | DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2018.242

The co-lead authors of the study are Vadim Yapiev, Christian Schönbach (School of Science and Technology), and Vassilis Inglezakis (School of Engineering). The other authors are Nazarbayev University students and faculty – Charles P Gilman, Tolganay Kabdullayeva, Akmaral Suleimenova, Aizhan Shagadatova, Azat Duisembay, Sanzhar Naizabekov, Saule Mussurova, Kamilya Sydykova, Ilyas Raimkulov, Ilyas Kabimoldayev, Ainagul Abdrakhmanova, Symbat Omarkulova, Dastan Nurmukhambetov, Aliya Kudarova, and Daniyar Malgazhdar.
