Hydrogen-based electric bicycles show up in Chinese cities The latest mode of transportation in China are electrically power assisted bicycle that runs on hydrogen. Yong’an Gong Technology, the developer of the hydrogen electric bicycles, has launched a large number of hydrogen electric bicycles in Changzhou, the Lingang Ne Area in Shanghai, and the Old City in Lijiang. In the future, they plan […]

In research frontiers, the US are the forerunner, and the UK, Germany and France trail China Since 10 years, Research Frontiers Reports are jointly organized by the CAS Institute of Science and Technology Strategy and Consulting, the CAS Documentation and Intelligence Center , and Coretronic. A recent conference released the “2023 Research Frontiers” and the “2023 Research Frontiers Heat Index” report. The report shows that, synthesizing the overall performance of […]

Superplastic Ti alloys can be formed at temperatures as low as 750 C A team of Chinese researchers from the CAS Institute of Metals and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology designed and prepared a new titanium alloy with a multiphase nano-network structure. The new titanium alloy  utilizes the nano-beta network in the matrix to promote micro-nanocrystalline α-grain slippage and tilting, and utilizes the nano-Ti2Cu phases […]

Shenzhen team develops Corynebacterium engineering chassis and converts biomass to lycopene A research team from the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has developed an integrated technological workflow for engineered living materials ELMs by synergistically combining tools from bioinformatics, structural biology, and synthetic biology. The workflow enables the exploration, comprehension, and utilization of bacterial biopolymers of interest and […]

CAS DICP: efficient electrocatalytic synthesis of ammonia from nitric oxide The teams of Xiao Jianping and Wang Guoxiong at the CAS Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences have made progress in the study of ammonia synthesis by electrocatalytic nitric oxide reduction and achieved 96.9% of ammonia Faraday efficiency and Ampere current density on a Cu6Sn5 alloy catalyst. Electrochemical synthesis of […]

CAS TIBS: 39 g/L Germacrene A from engineered strains of Yarrowia lipolytic Systematic metabolic engineering strategies were explored in the oleaginous yeast Yarrowia lipolytica for hyperproducing sesquiterpene germacrene A which serves as an important intermediate of numerous anticarcinogens. By identifying the most efficient germacrene A synthase to date, reconstructing the endogenous mevalonate pathway and extending the cytosolic acetyl-CoA pool by regulating lipid metabolism, the resulting strain […]

The P10K database: a data portal for the protist 10 000 genomes project Protist are unicellular eukaryotic organisms, including unicellular eukaryotic algae and protozoa. Protists are highly diverse and widely distributed in all kinds of water environments, playing an important role in ecological balance, material and energy cycles, environmental health, and the occurrence of plant and animal diseases. They are important components of the aquatic ecosystem, important […]

A cooling ceramic material cover may reduce energy consumption of buildings by 27% Chinese scientists invent new passive cooling of buildings A Hong Kong team of scientists has proposed  a new type of ceramic materials to realize passive cooling of buildings and save energy consumed by air conditioners. The electricity used by cooling systems accounts for about 10 percent of global electricity consumption. Therefore, developing new […]

Sericultural Industry in Liaoning increases silkworm production sevenfold using drones The Sericultural Science Research Institute of the Liaoning Academy of Agricultural Sciences of China, supported by the National Silkworm and Mulberry Industrial Technology System Sericultural Silkworm Breeding Technology Duties Scientist Project, has successfully developed a silkworm production machinery system, including a drone for silkworm transportation, an efficient yarn reeling machine, and a silkworm egg […]

Earth bacteria could make lunar soil more habitable for plants Researchers from China Agricultural University tested five species of bacteria and found three of them more than doubled the amount of phosphorus content within a period of 10 to 21 days. In the next phase of the study, the researchers grew a model plant, commonly used in bioresearch, in simulated lunar soil treated with […]
