Recently, a research team led by Profs. ZHOU Huiqiong, QIU Xiaohui and ZHANG Yong from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences proposed a new strategy to investigate the regulation of nanoscale surface energy distribution at the interface layer of organic solar cells.
Prof. CHEN Liang's team at the Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology and Engineering (NIMTE) observed that the addition of sulfate in electrolyte can greatly alleviate corrosion, thus enhancing the operating stability of seawater electrolysis for hydrogen production.
Prof. SHI Weiqun's group from the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has proposed a modified electrorefining process to recover actinides, namely in-situ anodic precipitation (IAP).
Researchers from the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology proposed a novel bienzyme-catalytic and dioxygenation-mediated mechanism of anthraquinone ring opening.
Peroxy radicals are very important reaction intermediates in the oxidation of atmospheric chemistry and combustion. A research group led by Prof. ZHANG Weijun at the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science has investigated the vacuum ultraviolet photochemistry of the ethyl peroxy radical and identified the conformers of it.
In a study published in Advanced Materials, Prof. ZHANG Shiwu from University of Science and Technology of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and his collaborators designed an electrochemically driven artificial muscle using the liquid metal gallium.
