Students of HUMG won the Silver Prize of the International Science and Invention Fair


Bui Ha Duc Anh, Nguyen Van Tuan Anh, Truong Thi Thao (Advanced Program - K9), Tran Trung Thanh (Refining and Petrochemical K63) from HUMG and Nguyen Tri Dzung - a student of TH School have applied and competed with 463 teams from 36 countries in the field of Life science of International Science and Invention Fair 2021.

The team developed the topic “Efficiency of Essential Oil Extracted from Piper Betel Leaves for Antibacterial Soap” on the basis of a study participating in the university's student scientific research competition. This is part of a series of research on natural products for life developed at HUMG. As a result, the team created an all-natural, highly effective antibacterial soap under the consultation of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tong Thi Thanh Huong – Deputy Head of Faculty of Oil and Gas of HUMG. The Covid-19 epidemic was a big obstacle for the team working together. However, they had a scientific assignment of tasks and effective teamwork, despite being online. Lab tests have been carefully performed to evaluate the product. The in-depth study of academic documents and reference to international publication to prepare the theoretical basis were also a strength of the student group.
