Metallo-Supramolecular Complex Targets Amyloid for AD Treatment with Enantioselectivity[Jan 22, 2018]

Dr. QU Xiaogang from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry and his collaborators took a new strategy whereby directional ligands AB–CD are used to synthesize optically pure head-to-head-to-tail (HHT) asymmetric constitutions in the absence of head-to-head-to-head (HHH) isomers and strategically prepared a highly stereoselective self-assembly of diverse.

Temperature, Moisture Sensitivities of Biological N2 Fixation for Three Substrates in Subtropical Karst Forest[Jan 22, 2018]

A research team from the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture collected soil, litter and moss samples from a secondary forest with a limited abundance of N2-fixing plants in a subtropical karst region, southwest China. They investigated soil, litter and moss responses of BNF to temperature (15, 25 and 35℃) and moisture (low, intermediate and high levels) over a one-week period under laboratory conditions.

Machine Learning Method to Locate Unseen Sources in Deep Water[Jan 19, 2018]

Researcher NIU Haiqiang from the Institute of Acoustics and his colleagues from USA applied the machine learning classifiers to the ship localization in Santa Barbara Channel off the west coast of California. They demonstrated that with limited environmental information, machine learning classifiers could produce reasonable range estimates at longer ranges than conventional matched field processing (MFP).

A Novel Method to Construct Dienes and Polyenes by Cu-Catalyzed Dehydrogenative Desaturation-Relay[Jan 16, 2018]

The research group led by Prof. SU Weiping from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) reported a copper-catalyzed method to access diverse diene, polyene and heterocycles motifs via multiple successive dehydrogenation process.

Researchers Find Ways to Self-assemble and Obtain Au Nanorods at Liquid/Liquid Interface[Jan 19, 2018]

Recently, Prof. YANG Liangbao's team from Institute of Intelligent Machines, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, proposed a rapid and effective strategy to self-assemble gold nanoparticles at liquid/liquid interface and to acquire integrated interfacial film.

Climate Change Affects Fish Reproductive Phenology in Plateau Area: Study[Jan 19, 2018]

Research Group of Biological Invasion and Adaptive Evolution (BIAE; PI: CHEN Yifeng) at Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently answered how reproductive phenology of Gymnocypris selincuoensis, an endemic fish in Lake Selicuo in Tibetan Plateau, associated with climate changes.
