100 years since the birth of Academician Jordan Malinowski

A session dedicated to the life and scientific achievements of Academician Jordan Malinowski was held on June 6 at the “Prof. Marin Drinov” Hall of BAS. The event was held on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great Bulgarian scientist and physical chemist, who is also the patron of the Institute of Optical Materials and Technologies (IOMT-BAS). Acad. Malinowski is one of the most distinguished scientists in the field of physical chemistry, with a contribution to the study of photographic processes, said in his speech the President of BAS Acad. Julian Revalski and added that despite his achievements in innovations, he never neglected the importance of basic science. As President of BAS, Acad. Malinowski contributed to the development of the [...]

Scientific session “Young scientists in the world of polymers”

  The fourteenth scientific session "Young scientists in the world of polymers", organised by the Institute of Polymers-BAS, was held on June 1. The event is part of the Institute's activities related to promoting the scientific achievements of young Bulgarian researchers engaged in the field of polymer materials to the academic community, business and the general public. Twenty-two young scientists from institutes of BAS and different universities presented their work. During the session were awarded student Rumena Stancheva from IP-BAS and PhD student Denitsa Nikolova from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy at SU-Sofia. Awards for the best poster were given to young scientist Lyubomira Radeva from the Faculty of Pharmacy at MU-Sofia and PhD student Ina Anastasova from IP-BAS. Links to the posters are [...]

Fourth Workshop on Size-Dependent Effect in Materials for Environmental Protection and Energy Application (SizeMat 4)

The 4th International Workshop "Size-Dependent Effect in Materials for Environmental Protection and Energy Application (SizeMat 4) is taking place from 10 to 14 May 2023 in Pomorie. The forum is dedicated to size-dependent effects in materials for environmental protection and clean energy generation as an innovative approach in the development of alternative materials with improved properties. The workshop is organized by the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry at BAS (IGIC - BAS), which is one of the leading scientific organisations in Bulgaria in the field of materials chemistry. The SizeMat 4 Workshop is implemented within the framework of the project "European Science Network on Materials for Clean Technologies" (TwinTeam), coordinated by IGIC-BAS. It brought together around 105 scientists to present and discuss current trends [...]

The opportunities that Elsevier provides to support research in Bulgaria and their perspectives were also discussed.

“Prof. Ivan Shopov” Award for outstanding young scientist in the field of polymers

Denitsa Nikolova from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" is the winner of the award "Outstanding Young Scientist in Polymers" named after Prof. Ivan Shopov for 2023. At an official ceremony on 1 March in the hall of the Federation of Scientific Engineering Unions the award was presented by the founder of the award, Prof. Ivan Shopov, and the President of the Union of Chemists Prof. Venko Beshkov. The research of PhD student Denitsa Nikolova is dedicated to the development of polymer carriers of biologically active substances with potential application in ophthalmology. Soft contact lenses containing suitable drug substances, which are gradually released and enter the eye, are made of new polymeric materials. The results achieved are important [...]

Biodegradable cellular matrix with applications in tissue engineering developed by a team from the Institute of Electronics

Ultrashort pulse laser treatment of cp-Ti immersed in aqueous silver nitrate (AgNO3) solution A biodegradable cellular matrix that supports bone tissue regeneration and at the same time prevents the formation of bacterial biofilm on it has been developed by a research team from the Institute of Electronics of BAS. During their experimental studies, the scientists generated a coated surface that can be applied in the development of customized, multi-component and porous structured implants imitating the natural body environment and possessing antibacterial properties. By means of ultrashort laser pulse processing, properties optimally tailored to the biocompatibility, mechanical and physiological needs of the host tissue are sought. The team's development is innovative and has potential for future application in tissue engineering. The research team [...]
