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.

Researchers Synthesize Polymers for Selective Recognition and Adsorption of Gossypol[May 23, 2017]

A research group led by Prof. ZHANG Yagang at Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics & Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) for selective recognition and adsorption of gossypol. Adsorption performances of these MIPs showed that the prepared MIPs achieved binding capacity as high as 564 mg g-1 for gossypol and had improved selectivity and excellent reusability.

Scientists Synthesize Novel Keggin-Al30 Pillared Montmorillonite[May 23, 2017]

Recently, Dr. ZHU Jianxi's group from Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences proposed a convenient method to synthesis Keggin-Al30 pillared interlayered montmorillonite (Mt) with Mt and a base-hydrolyzed solution of Al (III) chloride. It is the first time that porous pillared interlayered Mt with large Keggin-Al30 pillars has been successfully prepared, which may open up entirely new avenues for developing novel PILCs as heterogeneous catalysts and porous adsorbents
