Time

Speaker

Saadat Sulaimankulova - Doctor of Chemistry, Professor, Head of the Nanotechnology Laboratory at the Institute of Chemistry and Phytotechnology of the Kyrgyz Academy of Sciences.

Abstract

This lecture presents an overview of the opportunities and prospects for the development of nanotechnology in Kyrgyzstan. The audience will learn about methods of producing nanostructures using low-temperature plasma and cavitation, as well as the results of testing silver and gold nanostructures in surgery and dentistry.

About the Speaker

Saadat Sulaimankulova was born in Kyrgyzstan and finished Secondary School #37 in Bishkek (then Frunze) with a silver medal. In 1972, she graduated from the Moscow State University of Fine Chemical Technologies, specialising in Chemistry and Technology of Rare and Trace Elements. In 1980, Saadat defended her candidate’s dissertation on “Sulfide formation through spark erosion of metals”. In 2002, she defended her doctoral dissertation on “Obtaining high-energy dispersion media through a low-voltage electric pulse”. Saadat is currently Head of the Nanotechnology Laboratory at the Institute of Chemistry and Phytotechnology of the Kyrgyz Academy of Sciences and is working on the development of nanotechnology to produce carbon, metallic, oxide, silicon, carbide, sulfide spherical and faceted nanoparticles and nanotubes for use in medicine, biology, electronics, alternative energy, and more.
