CAS Institute of Psychology analyzes culture and cooperative behavior patterns in belt and road areas using big data on Twitter

The team of ZHU Tingxuan at the Institute of Psychology, CAS, combined cultural psychology and big data analysis (Twitter), to analyze the characteristics such as independence or individualism of countries or regions along the belt and road initiative. The world values database (WVS) project of the institute investigates and studies human values ​​and beliefs on […]

CAS Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics achieves visible light-driven C−H activation and C–C coupling of methanol into ethylene glycol

As an important base chemical, ethylene glycol is not only the main raw material of PET, an important plastic product, but also widely used in other fields of the chemical industry. At present, more than 90% of ethylene glycol production in the industry is through the oil route, namely the ethylene-epoxy hydration route, which is […]

Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENG) may power portable and wearable electronics: CAS Institute of Semiconductors

The group of XU Yun at CAS Institute of Semiconductors and GAO Qianqiang at Buffalo University have engineered a flexible TENG based on crumpled gold films. By introducing crumpled morphology onto the gold thin film using macrocontrol, the TENG delivered a maximum voltage of 124.6 V, a maximum current of 10.13 μA and maximum power density of […]

Fudan University launches human phenotype research project

The first phase of the project is aimed at understanding how cancer and other complicated diseases develop by addressing the relationships and internal mechanisms between genes and phenotypes. As a first step, the project will produce a reference atlas for complete phenotypes of 20,000 healthy Chinese. Chief scientist of the project is LI Jin, Vice […]

CAS Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics converts CO2 into linear .alpha.olefins

A research team of SUN Jian and GE Qingjie at CAS DICP reported a CO2 hydrogenation to olefin process that reaches 72% selectivity and produces 50.3% of heavy alkenes (C4-C18), among which linear α-olefins account for 80%. The process is catalyzed by carbon-supported iron, commonly used in C-C coupling reactions, with multiple alkali promoters extracted […]

The CASEarth Big Science Project

The project, inaugurated at March 1, 2018, aims to build a global and open international big earth data science center over the next 5 years. A team of 129 institutions from home and abroad with a total of more than 1200 researchers will focus on three areas of work. The first is to solve a […]
