SIOC Made Progress in Catalytic Asymmetric Dearomatization of Benzofurans[Sep 15, 2017]

A method for the straightforward construction of tetrahydrofurobenzofurans via palladium-catalyzed dearomative [3+2] cycloaddition reactions is developed. Good to excellent diastereo- and enantioselectivity with broad substrate scope and high functional-group compatibility is enabled via careful tuning of chiral PHOX ligands.

Scientists Produce a Second-generation Flagellin-rPAc Fusion Protein, KFD2-rPAc[Sep 14, 2017]

In a present study, the research group led by Prof. YAN Huimin from Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences characterized the second-generation flagellin-rPAc fusion protein, a vaccine candidate designed to avoid an undesired flagellin-specific antibody response and inflammatory side effects while inducing efficacious antibodies against PAc and providing high protective efficacy against dental caries.

In Response to Monetary and Affective Incentives: Striatal Dysfunction in Patients with Schizophrenia and Their Unaffected First-degree Relatives[Sep 14, 2017]

Dr. Raymond Chan and his team from the Neuropsychology and Applied Cognitive Neuroscience (NACN) Laboratory, CAS Key Laboratory of Mental Health, Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have investigated the potential unique neural mechanisms of monetary incentives delay (MID) and affective incentives delay (AID) tasks inpatients with schizophrenia and their unaffected first-degree relatives.

ISSP Researchers Deliver their Comments on "Observation of the Wigner-Huntington Transition to Metallic Hydrogen"[Sep 13, 2017]

A recent work of Dias and Silvera from Harvard University reported on observation of metallic hydrogen in a diamond anvil cell at 495 GPa, in which they announced that they produced for the first time the "metal hydrogen" in a hydrostatic environment in the world.
