Scientists Develop New Concept of Confined Catalysis under Two-dimensional Materials[May 23, 2017]

The research group led by Profs. FU Qiang and BAO Xinhe from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences revealed both the geometric constraint and confinement field in two-dimensional (2D) space between a graphene overlayer and Pt(111). The researchers demonstrated a new concept of confined catalysis under 2D materials, which they have named "catalysis under cover".

Wild Geese in China are 'Prisoners' in Their Own Wetlands[May 23, 2017]

Because of greater human activity in cereal and rice fields in China, Chinese farmers also raise domestic ducks and geese in the stubble fields, leaving little food behind for their wild counterparts. Wintering geese are also a popular target of hunters who use shotguns, nets, traps, and poison to kill thousands upon thousands of birds every year. As a result, they conclude, the geese are effectively imprisoned in increasingly degraded wetland habitats.

Elastic Properties Induced to Calculate Thermal Conductivity[May 23, 2017]

A Chinese research team led by prof. ZHANG Yongsheng at Institute of Solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science has proposed a fast and effective method to calculate the thermal conductivity of materials by using the elastic constants of materials.

Researchers Reveal Wild Geese Trapped in the Yangtze Wetlands, Their Only Winter Home[May 23, 2017]

New Chinese studies Are declining populations of wild geese in China 'prisoners' of their natural habitats? published on World Biodiversity Day using the latest hi-tech tracking devices fitted to 67 wild geese of five different species show that they are faithful to their ancestral wintering habitats, remaining day and night within the safety of Yangtze River Floodplain wetlands.
