Abstract: Metals exhibit resistance to transfer of electric current and heat is produced in process. On the other hand, superconductors have null resistance to direct current which leads to a number of important applications in science and technology. Moreover, superconductors exhibit so called perfect diamagnetism, an exotic phenomenon which may also be utilized in a daily life. Here, our own involvement in research on novel superconductors will be illustrated, particularly fluorides and hydrides. The talk will be concluded with the description of a new nanotechnological setup which enables doping and thus metallization of a huge range of elements and chemical compounds, some of which may become superconducting at room temperature.
