RU

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Russian Federation. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Russian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Russia. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Russia. Many Russian federal subjects have their own codes with the prefix "RU." For example, the code for the City of Moscow is ISO 3166-2:RU:MOW.

which operates the Tanaka Kikinzoku Group's manufacturing business, will begin provision of DX (Dye-X) ruthenium complex dye used in dye sensitized solar cells with the photoelectric conversion wavelength band extended to over 1,000 nanometers (a nanometer is a billionth of a meter).
The ruthenium precursor successfully developed for the first time by Tanaka Kikinzoku Kogyo is a metallo-organic complex made up of organic compounds (Cyclooctatetraene and Carbonyl) and a metallic element (Ruthenium).
The sensitive element consists of an optical substrate--a glass slide, a glass/plastic lens or an optical fiber--coated with a matrix containing glucose oxidase as a sensitive and reactive compound, as well as the ruthenium complex.
Actually ruthenium has very similar reactions: it colours the solution with tannic acid bluish green and reduces with ethyl alcohol as well as with zinc forming a black precipitate.
