The research group led by Prof. CAO Rong and Prof. CAO Minna from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter reported a series of single-atom catalysts loaded on holey carbon matrix, in which Fe-NHC sample exhibited better catalytic oxygen reduction reaction performance and cycle performance superior to commercial Pt/C +Ir/C catalyst when applied to zinc-air batteries.
Gas-liquid Taylor flow has been proven as an ideal flow regime to enhance chemical reactions. However, the method to precisely control the Taylor flow pattern is still lacking. Motivated by such a challenge, a research team led by Prof. TANG Zhiyong and Associate Prof. ZHANG Jie at the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute reported a novel approach of adding pulsation field to precisely regulate the gas-liquid Taylor Flow.
Inspired by the fascinating adhesive and cold-tolerant properties of spider silks, Chinese researchers led by Prof. WANG Shutao from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry have recently proposed a spider-silk-inspired wet adhesive. The adhesive is composed of core–sheath nanostructured fibers with hygroscopic adhesive nanosheath and supporting nanocore, showing robust wet adhesion and supercold tolerance.
Based on the hydrophilic/hydrophobic interactions at the solid-liquid interface and emulsion interfacial polymerization, Prof. WANG Shutao's team from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry proposed a general wetting-enabled-transfer (WET) strategy. With the help of WET strategy, precise patterning of organogels and hydrogels on organohydrogel surfaces was enabled.
A research group led by Prof. CHEN Xueyuan from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter proposed a unique strategy for designing UV-emitting luminescent all-inorganic halide perovskites by engineering the bandgap and surface structure of CsPbCl3 NCs.
Prof. LIU Fu's group at the Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology and Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the collaborators proposed a poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) membrane with a dual-scale hyperporous structure and rational wettability, which can achieve a continuous "nonfouling" separation for oil/water emulsions via membrane demulsification.
