The research team led by Prof. LI Weixue from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences tackled key problems of the stability of supported nanocatalysts. They proposed the rational design of...
Fine Cubic Cu2O Nanocrystals Serve as Highly Selective Catalyst for Propylene Oxide Production 2021-11-03
Propylene oxide (PO) is a valuable intermediate product in the chemical industry. Current industrial production of PO is neither cost-effective nor environmentally friendly. Propylene epoxidation with O2to PO can overcome these drawbacks. H...
Researchers Develop Catalyst for Stable Reduction of Carbon Dioxide 2021-10-22
Electrocatalytic carbon dioxide reduction (CO2RR) is an effective means of CO2resource utilization. The current developed catalysts can effectively catalyze CO2RRto prepare a variety of carbon-based fuels such as formic (HCOOH) which is mos...
Researchers Observe Enhanced Bulk Photovoltaic Effect in 2D Ferroelectric Material 2021-10-20
Bulk photovoltaic effect (BPVE) is widely used in generating electricity. As a process of energy transference from photons to electrons and of voltage formation within ferroelectric material, BPVE acts like a dam, raising up water (voltage)...

A research team led by Prof. YAO Xuebiao, LIU Xing and ZANG Jianye from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) revealed how crotonylation of EB1 helped orientate spindle in mitosis. The study was published inNature Chemical Bi...
High-spatial-resolution Interferometry Enters Multi-Wavelength Era 2021-09-20
Interferometers are widely used in various high spatial resolution imaging techniques to extend the diffraction limit. However, the conventional interferometric methods only work when the photons have the same wavelength.In a study publishe...
Researchers Realize Measurement Beyond Standard Quantum Limit with Nitrogen-vacancy Centers in Diamond 2021-08-30
Measurement is an important means of human cognition of nature and many measurements are limited by standard quantum limit (SQL). SQL is defined as the measured noise levels set by quantum mechanics. Quantum entanglement can be used to beat...
Researchers Develop Carbon Spring with High Compressibility and Stretchability 2021-08-27
Mechanical flexibility is a key factor determining the stability and durability of porous carbon materials. The compressive brittleness of porous carbon materials has been well resolved. However, reversible stretchability property remains a...
Researchers Quantify Critical Particle Distance 2021-08-25
Supported metal nanoparticles are of great importance in many industrial catalytic processes. Under high temperature, metal nanoparticle catalysts have a strong sintering tendency because of the sharply increased surface energy with the dec...
Researchers Reveal Phase-changing in Graphite by Interface Charge Injection 2021-08-16
Graphite, as an important material for Li battery anode and graphene preparation, can exist in two phases: the Bernal (2H) phase and the rhombohedral (3R) phase. The 2H phase has relatively low energy and high proportion in graphite powder,...
Effective Temperatures Connect Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Systems 2021-08-15
What is temperature? A direct understanding of temperature is the specific number shown in thermometers. A much more scientific definition of temperature is a statistical concept in equilibrium systems. However, what about nonequilibrium sy...
