3. The most effective projects of UzhNU
Among the most effective projects already introduced into
economy or planned to be introduced in the nearest future the following
ones should be pointed out:
1. The highly effective new probiotics MONOSPORYN for safety
food additives in agriculture and veterinary practice and protection from
infections diseases in medicine.
Monosporine-PK (anti-klebsiellotic) is a single-component selective
activity bacillic veterinary biopreparation with immunomodulatory
properties; it is characterized by high
antagonistic activity against a number
of agentsof opportunistic intestinal
2. The highly new phytopreparations for the pregnant and babies
The original prescription for the effective phytocompositions to
strengthen, prevent and treat a number of diseases and illnesses has
been worked out, in particular, neurocirculatory dystony, initial stages
of cerebral disturbances, diskenisia of the hebatobillary system. There
have been obtained the positive sanitary and hygienic certificates of
the Ukraine's Ministry of Health Protection.
3. The biologically active components “Transcarpathian
The worked out biologically active additive substances on the
basis of Carpathian phytoraw materials are characterized by the
generally strengthening effective properties. The elaborated balsam on
the basis of biologically active substances worked out by the
university scientists, received the sanitary and hygienic approval of
Ukraine Ministry of Health Protection and was put into industrial
production at «BIK» enterprise in Uzhhorod. In 2005 the balsam was
awarded the prize «The Best Native Product of 2005». As to its cost,
price and properties the balsam is able to compete with such well
known trade marks as «The Bitner Balsam», «Unicum», and others.
4. Highly effective eksimer and halogen sources of radiation in
visible, UV and IR-ranges. The suggested sources of a new type are
unique by their improved characteristics in comparison with the already
existing analogues. These sources may be used in photochemistry,
biotechnologies, medical and quantum electronics, in particular rating
solid state laser. The construction of the sources of radiation is
protected by 10 patents on inventions.
5. Highly sensitive method of quantum non-etalon elemental
analysis of the different material's surfaces and volume by means of ionic
beams. An entirely innovational optical method of the surface diagnostics,
that is a mixture of Doppler's method and reconstructive tomography, that
is characterized by a wide ring of advantages, being compared with
modern methods of secondary mass-spectrometry and ion-photon
spectroscopy, is suggested.
6. Filters for cleaning of drinking-water.
On the basis of Transcarpatian zeolites (clinoptilolite of
Sokyrnytsa), and also the powders of titan and its relations to develop
high-efficiency filters for the cleaning of drinking-water from the ions of
heavy metals, radionuclides, amonium, mineral fertilizers and other
elements like that. Such filters and group filter systems can be used for the
cleaning of water for the needs of habitants of multistoried buildings,
individual houses and farmsteads, kindergartens, hospitals. In the case of
necessity it is possible to produce filters
for cleaning juices,wine, and also for
absorption of harmful extrass in an
atmosphere – sulfur dioxide, hydrogen
sulphure, ammonia, carbon dioxide and
other elements like that.
7. Multisensor fiber-optic control system of the chemical composition of
the vaporous media and aqua solutions.
The system consists of fiber-optic sensor, with the sensitive elements in
the form of a film deposited on the ends of the optic fiber. Each separate
film element is selectively sensible to the definite chemical component. In
the proposed system it is possible to make the sensors of two types – the
amplitude and (or) the interference ones. The principle of the operation of
each sensor is to measure the reflection coefficient changes on the
boundary fiber-film (for the amplitude type) or the changes of the
interference signal, caused by the refraction index change or film
thickness (for the interference type), due to the selective interaction
8. Complex method for industrial wastewater treatment from different
pollutants including phenols.
A new economical model for effective treatment of industrial and
agricultural polluted wastewater on the basis of Klynoptylolit matrix by
using of adsorbed on their surface bacterial biodestructive strain have
been developed.
The complex treatment of industrial
sewages from the different nature
hazards, including phenols, is possible
by using of Klynoptylolit as a new
adsorbing matrix material with a
biological filter that is represented as
original destructive bacteria.
9. Adsorption gas sensors (ACS). Adsorption Gas Sensors are
intended to transform the concentration of gases to be analyzed in
proportional changeover of the resistance of the semiconductor (gas
sensitive) material. Advantages of the AGS: high sensitivity; uses simple
electrical circuit; long servise life; good stability; sensitivity to gas
concentration overloads; strong resistance to corrosive gases; good
reproducibility; low price. Types of AGS elaborated
and implemented into the production: AGS-01,
AGS-01М - methane, combustible gases; AGS-03ammonia; AGS-05-chlorofluorocarbons 12(22);
AGS-06- carbon monoxide; AGS-07–organic
solvents; AGS-16–methane+carbonmonoxide.
The Adsorption Gas Sensors ASE-01M of new
a generation for the methane detection based
on thick film technology with a decreased power
consumption were developed in 2007.
10. Electrochemical methods of analysis of heavy metals in primary waste.
The study of electrochemical methods of heavy metals analysis (including
toxic ones) in primary waste; the development of electrochemical sensors
and measurement techniques. The main purpose is the study of materials
based on new superionic conductors that may be used as materials of ionselective membranes as well as the development of electrochemical
sensors and measurement techniques with their application.
The basic tasks of international scientific activity of
UZhNU in the context of integration processes will be following:
- to set an activity on creation of Scientific Park on UzhNU base
with the purpose of the effective and rational use of scientific potential,
material and technical base for commercialization of results of researches,
their introduction on domestic and oversea markets, development and
implementation of scientific technological and innovative projects;
- the Center of Transborder Scientific Cooperation has to provide
preparation and implementation as interregional and intergovernmental
projects, and also coordination of mutual scientific activity of oversea
partners - organizations, located in adjacent boundary areas;
- to create favorable terms for active participation of scientific
universities in international and regional competitions, as well as in the
programs FP7, Tempus-Tasis, projects of NATO, competitions COFUND,
ENPI Cross-border Cooperation Programme, Vishegrad fund program.
