Scientists from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS), along with other collaborators, recently revealed that China's coal-fired power plants met ultra-low emission (ULE) standards ahead of schedule and also achieved substantial emission reductions between 2014 and 2017.
Scientists from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, along with other collaborators, recently revealed that China's annual carbon emissions growth declined significantly from 10% during the 2002-2012 period to 0.3% during the period from 2012-2017. This decelerating trend in carbon emissions is closely related to a new phase of economic development the researchers have dubbed "the new normal."
Recently, a Chinese research team from Hefei Institutes of Physical Science reported the synthesis of graphene quantum dots (GQDs) under an external high magnetic field (HMF) and their applications in photothermal therapy (PTT). By introducing HMF during the preparation of GQDs, the joint team used phenol molecules as single precursors and hydrogen peroxide as oxidant, and the resulting 9T-GQDs were expected to possess strong absorbance in NIR-II region for improvement of their applications in PTT.
Researchers from the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP) have made progress in the study of enzymatic hydrolysis process of alkali pretreated straw lately. The research provides insight into the structural changes and visualization of the hydrolysis process.
A research team led by Prof. WANG Guoxiong and Prof. BAO Xinhe from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics revealed the reversible exsolution/dissolution mechanism of perovskite electrode in solid oxide electrolysis cell for CO2 electrolysis.
A research team from Hefei Institutes of Physical Science designed a direct Z-scheme ZnS/Co9S8 heterojunction with hollow cubic structures, and the PEC sensor based on such materials achieved the highly sensitive and selective detection of chlorpyrifos through the inhibition to the photoresponse of ZnS/Co9S8 by chlorpyrifos.
A group led by Dr. YANG Li from CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health and the collaborators reported an integrated toolkit for direct circular and linear RNA expression analysis from ribosomal-RNA depleted RNA-seq (CIRCexplorer3-CLEAR) updated from the previously-reported CIRCexplorer pipeline.
In a recent study, researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) reported well preserved fossil seeds of Apocynaceae from the Lower Eocene Niubao Formation in the central Qinghai Tibetan plateau (QTP), including a new genus, Asclepiadospermum, and two new species, A. marginatum and A. ellipticum.
The researchers from the Instituted of Subtropical Agriculture examined the microbial carbon use efficiency, microbial biomass turnover, and necromass accumulation in rice rhizosphere and bulk soils subjected to long-term (31 years) fertilizations.
A research team led by associated professor LIU Jinzhao from the Institute of Earth Environment investigated the variations in n-alkane δ13C values with major plant groups, and analyzed the responses of n-alkane δ13C values among plant groups to precipitation amount and temperature.
Recently, an underwater gliding snake-like robot (UGSR), which combines the characteristics of an underwater glider and an underwater snake-like robot, is proposed by Shenyang Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The robot can realize gliding motion driven by net buoyancy and multiple swimming gaits driven by joint torque, showing the advantages of strong endurance and good maneuverability.
Images are often used as important evidence in legal proceedings, therefore their authenticity verification is of great significance. Recently, the edge computing research group at Shenyang Institute of automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has developed a new technology of image forgery detection based on motion blur.
According to a study by researchers from the Institute of Metal Research and their collaborators, two different formation mechanisms of five-fold twinning via repeated oriented attachment of ~3 nm gold, platinum, and palladium nanoparticles were clarified by in situ high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and molecular dynamics simulations.
The research team led by Dr. ZHOU Haokui and supervised by Prof. ZHAO Guoping at the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology developed tmap as an integrative framework for both pattern discovery and hypothesis generation for population-scale microbiome studies.
