2023/11 Oxygen on Mars: “Machine chemist”develops suitable catalyst without human intervention While preparing for a future Mars mission, researchers from CAS University of Science  of China (USTC) and Technology have developed the following rationale: The oxygen content in the Martian atmosphere is extremely low. However, recently it was found that there is a large amount of water on Mars. Thus, the use of solar […]

Blue Book on China’s Scientific Journal Development (2023)中国科技期刊发展蓝皮书%282023%29/63782991?fr=ge_ala The influence of Chinese scientific journals has been on the rise over the past decade, based on indicators such as the number of international citations and inclusion in renowned international databases. Released by the China Association for Science and Technology in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, on Wednesday during the 18th Forum on Development of […]

Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai share low-carbon index 2023 The “China Urban Low Carbon Construction Level Index 2023” from the Urban Institute of Zhejiang University evaluated urban low-carbon construction levels for 297 cities above local level. The index evaluates energy structure, economic development, productivity, urban residents, watershed carbon sinks, forest carbon sinks, green space carbon sinks, and low-carbon technologies The team developed a […]

On Nov. 1, 2023, the National Science Library and the Knowledge Serice Platform of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has released PubScholar, a public information database modelled after PubMed of the USA. It operates in Chinese language and aims to build scholarly platform for the public good, to provide high-quality public academic resources for […]

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 […]
