A new drug TR128 capsule for advanced malignant solid tumors was approved by National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) for clinical trials recently.
Urea (CO(NH2)2) has been applied both in agricultural and pharmaceutical field. The Bosch-Meiser process widely used now results in high energy consumption and CO2 emission. Therefore, it is imperative to explore energy-saving and economical routes for urea synthesis under mild conditions.
After studying the effects of irradiation defects on the work function of graphene electrodes in thermionic energy converters (TECs), a research team found that the generation of defects in graphene through irradiation would increase the work function and reduce the electron emission capacity. This result led to a decrease in the power output and conversion efficiency of TECs.
According to a recent research published in Corrosion Science, scientists improved the corrosion resistance of China Low Activation Martensitic (CLAM) steel to lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) with applying rare earth element Ce.
Recently, researchers from the Institute of Plasma Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with ITER organization and the Southwest Institute of Physics (SWIP), carried out a study on the isotope effects of mixed plasma-driven co-permeation based on the first wall of Chinese Helium Cooled Ceramic Breeder (HCCB) test blanket module (TBM), which is made of CLF-1 Reduced Activation Martensitic/Ferritic (RAFM) steel.
