CAS Institute of Physics finds sound-wave production from graphene sheets

Using multilayer graphene sheets, a multi-institute research team observed laser light-induced non-harmonic sound waves. The reaction pathway is believed to be light – heat – sound (heated ambient air molecules to form sound waves. The finding Their job may provide opportunities for graphene use in solar energy utilization, e. g., for optics-controlled speakers. CAS news […]

CAS Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden develops process to produce biodiesel from oils with high acid value

Prof. FANG Zhen and his team of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) conducted a study aiming to directly produce biodiesel from oils with high acid value without any pretreatment using activated nanosized Mg-Al hydrotalcite (HT-Ca). With 5 wt% HT-Ca, 160 oC, 30/1 methanol/oil molar ratio and 4 h, 93.4% Jatropha biodiesel yield was obtained with […]
