Recently, Prof. WU Lifang and her team from Hefei Institutes of Physical Science found a novel type of wheat which had a lower Fusarium head blight (FHB) infection rate. They also revealed its mechanisms by using transcriptome analysis.
Prof. FANG Xinqiang's group at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter introduced the nucleophilic malonate unit into the racemic α-functionalized ketone by group addition. They showed that the real kinetic resolution happens at the second aldol step and the enatioenriched ketones are recovered by the first reversible Michael process.
A study, led by Prof. YU Shuhong from University of Science and Technology of China, Prof. TANG Zhiyong from National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, and Prof. Edward H. Sargent from University of Toronto, has shed new lights on the topic of chiral inorganic nanomaterials. The researchers demonstrated a regioselective magnetization strategy and achieved a library of semiconducting heteronanorods with chiroptical activities.
A research team led by Prof. CAO Rong and Prof. LIU Tianfu at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter (FJIRSM) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reported that the chemical stability of MOFs can be substantially improved through embedding electrostatic interactions in structure.
The research group led by Prof. MAO Jianggao at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter reported that the low molar ratio of IO3/V (about 1:1) led to the first alkali-metal vanadium iodate fluoride, CsVO2F(IO3), with an unprecedented 3D [VO2F(IO3)]- anionic framework.
A research team led by Prof. ZHUANG Xinxin from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter revealed the effect of urea additive on CuSO4·5H2O crystal habit. This study comes up with a new approach in the CuSO4·5H2O crystal habit modification, explains the mechanism from a molecular perspective rationally, and is instrumental for evaluating the organic additives with specific functional groups under the guidance of theoretical calculations.
