Scientists Describe Responses of Tropical Atmospheric Circulation to Climate Change[Jun 20, 2018]

An international team describes the climate change-induced responses of the tropical atmospheric circulation and their impacts on the hydrological cycle. Their review also depicts the theoretically predicted changes and diagnoses physical mechanisms for observational and model-projected trends in large-scale and regional climate.

Two Hybrid Nanoclusters of Noble-metal and Titanium Oxide Display Structure Dependent Optical Limiting Effects[Jun 12, 2018]

Recently, Prof. ZHANG Jian's group at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter successfully obtained the first two hybrid nanoclusters of noble-metal and titanium oxide which display structure dependent optical limiting effects. The study presented a breakthrough in the construction of hybrid noble-metal/Ti-O nanoclusters.


Scientists Elucidate Long Mystery on Late Rifamycin Biosynthesis[Jun 19, 2018]

A research team led by Prof. LI Shengying from the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology and their collaborators completely elucidated the long mystery on late rifamycin biosynthesis. This work revises the previous biosynthetic model that was proposed by Ghisalba et al. 36 years ago.
