Underwater Glider Haiyi 1000 Completes Mission[Oct 16, 2017]

China continues to make progress in deep sea exploration following the three-month mission of a new underwater glider in the South China Sea, which experts said will also help in maritime warfare. Codenamed Haiyi 1000, which means "sea wings" in Chinese, the underwater glider reached a record distance of over 1,880 kilometers during its mission, collecting data for scientific research, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Sunday.

Researchers Find out Active Phase of Cobalt-based Catalysts in CO2 Hydrogenation[Oct 14, 2017]

Prof. ZENG Jie's group at University of Science and Technology of China of Chinese Academy of Sciences has investigated the active phase of cobalt (Co)-based catalysts in CO2 hydrogenation. They incorporated N atoms into Co catalysts to fabricate Co4N catalysts. Based on in-situ mechanistic studies, they found that Co4NHx served as the active phase during CO2 hydrogenation.
