Scientists Find New Strategy for Supertough Self-healing Materials[Oct 17, 2018]

A research group led by Prof. LI Guoliang at the Institute of Process Engineering found a new strategy for supertough self-healing materials. Similar to the molecular structure of titin, the researchers developed self-healing materials with supertough function, as a diol molecule with hierarchical hydrogen bonds was introduced into the polymeric molecular structure.

Researchers Reconstruct Late Holocene Hydroclimatic Variations and Possible Forcing Mechanisms over Eastern Central Asia[Oct 17, 2018]

Dr. LAN Jianghu from the Institute of Earth Environment his colleagues reconstructed the high-resolution late Holocene hydroclimatic variations and possible forcing mechanisms over the eastern central Asia. Their research was based on the total organic carbon, total nitrogen, and carbonate contents, carbon/nitrogen ratios, and grain size from Lake Sayram, central Tianshan Mountains, China.

Scientists Develop Graphdiyne Based Fuel Cell Cathode Catalyst[Oct 16, 2018]

A research group led by Prof. HUANG Changshui and LI Yuliang from the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology developed a new hydrogen substituted graphdiyne (HsGDY) material. Their findings will open a different avenue for developing pyridinic N selectively doped carbon materials for fuel cells and other energy storage device.

Researchers Quantify Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Initial Stage of the Chinese Food Chain System[Oct 16, 2018]

Researchers from the Urban Ecological Process and Regulation research group at Institute of Urban Environment, collobrating with China Agricultural University and otherts, quantified the carbon fixation rate of each crop systems by collecting the SOC changes in different crop systems published in literature between 2000 and 2017.

Researchers Build "High-speed Train" for Electrons in InP Nanowires[Oct 16, 2018]

Prof. HAN Ning from the Institute of Process Engineering and his collaborators demonstrated that single-crystalline nonpolar-oriented InP nanowires could be successfully obtained with the minimized crystal defects and thus the high electron mobility.

Study Reveals Positive Roles of SAPK1 and SAPK2 in Salt Tolerance in Rice[Oct 15, 2018]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) determined the functions of SnRK2s in response to salt stress usingsapk1, sapk2andsapk1/2loss-of-function mutants (generated using the CRISPR/Cas9 system) and plants overexpressing these proteins.
