Recently, scientists of Institute of Solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science developed a facile and efficient laser irradiation in liquid technique to liberate the inaccessible Co-Nx active sites. The research was published in Advanced Materials.
Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics applied a "dynamical adjustment" methodology to quantitatively estimate the contribution of the internal and forced components to the East Asian winter temperature trends.
Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics found that the difference between actual and potential evapotranspiration can more sensitively capture the biological changes of ecosystems in response to the dynamics of drought intensity, compared with indices based on precipitation and temperature.
Under the guidance of Prof. LI Zhian and MAO Peng, a doctoral student from Research Group for Soil Ecology in South China Botanical Garden investigated the effect of wollastonite with or without phosphorus on cadmium accumulation in rice through field plot experiment.
Although nanomedicine has emerged as a prudent ploy in cancer treatment, there are still many challenges. Prof. YU Xuefeng at the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology and Prof. LIU Sijin at Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences developed a BP/DTX@PLGA nanocomplex for addressing these challenges.
Dr. GUO Huishan's group from Institute of Microbiology and the collaborators identify a secretory polysaccharide deacetylase, VdPDA1, from a soil-borne pathogenic fungus, Verticillium dahliae, the most notorious plant pathogen of the Verticillium genus, that facilitates infection through direct deacetylation of chitin oligomers, leading to suppression of plant LysM chitin receptor perception and dimerization.
