Scientists Develop a Polyionized Hydrogel Coating/ Membrane for Viscous Oil/Water Separation[May 18, 2016]

Recently, Prof. JIN Jian’s group, at Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech and Nano-bionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, developed a novel robust polyionized hydrogel coating/membrane that possesses a superanti-crude-oil-adhesion property. The polyionized hydrogel coating/membrane composed of sodium polyacrylate-grafted polyvinylidene fluoride (PAAS-g-PVDF) is fabricated by a one-step alkaline-induced phase inversion process.

Nanoparticles' Surface Charge Influences Tumor Penetration and Therapeutic Efficacy[May 19, 2016]

Physiochemical properties of cancer nanoparticle medicines such as size, shape and surface properties decide their in vivo fate and therapeutic efficacy. A recent study jointly conducted by research teams led by Prof. WANG Jun and Prof. WANG Yucai at University of Science & Technology of China of Chinese Academy of Sciences revealed that positively charged PEGylated polymeric nanoparticles (NPs) possess improved penetration ability over neutral or negatively charged NPs in the interstitial tumor space. This study was published online in Nano Today.

Scientists Find Method to Quantify One-Way Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering[May 18, 2016]

A recent study conducted by Key Laboratory of Quantum Information of University of Science & Technology of China (USTC) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) reported a way to quantify the one-way Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) steering in a two-qubit system. The study was published on Physical Review Letters. Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) steering describes the ability of one observer to nonlocally "steer" the other observer's state through local measurements.

The Role of Seismically-triggered Landslides in Carbon Sequestration: Evidence from the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake[May 18, 2016]

Large earthquakes can trigger widespread landslides that act to strip particulate organic carbon (POCbiosphere) from the vegetation and soils from mountain forests. This sort of POC is of global significance, because breakdown of the associated carbon has been implicated as a source of CO2 to the atmosphere due to oxidation in the landscape. However, this is at odds with observations that mountain rivers can rapidly erode and export landslide-mobilized POC. Preservation of some of this eroded POCbiosphere in sedimentary deposits could instead store carbon.
