Amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) is a precursor phase frequently present at the early stage of crystallization from aqueous solution. According to a structure model proposed by American scientists in 1970s, the amorphous phase is the aggregates of clusters with the composition of Ca9(PO4)6 and water molecules filling in the interstitial space. Recently, a team from Peking University School of Pharmaceutical Scien...

Lithium rich manganese-based layered oxide (LRMBO) with high capacity exceeding 250 mA h/g is considered as the most promising cathode candidate of Li-ion batteries. But the severe capacity decay hinders its practical application. Prof. Dingguo Xia’s Group, from Beijing Key Laboratory of Theory and Technology for Advanced Battery Materials, has developed a novel strategy for preparing a highly homogeneous nanocoa...

In order to tune the crystallinity, Chen Y et al reported blending a small amount of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as additive or plasticizer, achieving a better phase separation and a higher performance. However, from DIO to PDMS, the most additives reported are inert in the film, which will become traps for charge separation and transport when blending slightly overdose of them. This sensitivity and disadvantage s...

Recently, a research group from Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China has deeply investigated the processes of chromium translocation and transformaton in the plant-AM fungi continuum, and their results has been published on 15th, Dec, 2015 in Environmental Science & Technology.

A collaborated team from Beihang University and the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology has explored, for the first time, the feasibility of the amorphous hollow nanomaterials for efficient electrochemical water oxidation. Their research has been published on March 9th, 2015 in Advanced Energy Materials and chosen by editor as a cover.

The researchers from Rice University, the Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility, the University of Texas at San Antonio and the University of Houston developed a novel hydrogen generation catalyst based on trace of cobalt and graphene, which has proven nearly as effective as platinum-based catalysts. The research results have been published in September, 2015 in Nature Communications.
