In recent years, fluorescent MOFs have been demonstrated as a promising strategy for constructing sensors. However, most of the research studies on fluorescent MOF sensors have focused on the design and synthesis of 3D MOF crystals of the order of micrometers and have not exerted the best detection performance of MOF structures. 2D MOF nanosheets have the potential to break the limitations of 3D MOFs in sensitivity, response speed etc, due to the ultra-thin morphology, larger specific surface area and more exposed active sites.
High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HMFL), as main construction force of the Anhui High magnetic Field Province laboratory, has been focusing on the innovation and development of high magnetic field technology. Recently, a team from High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HMFL), Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS), Chinese Acadamy of Sciences (CAS) successfully developed a large-bore high-field magnet HM2 (25T/Φ148mm), which can produce a 25T central magnetic field and serve as insert magnet for the hybrid magnet HM1.
The Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, CAS sponsors the International Cooperation Promotion Award to recognize HFIPS individuals or groups for their contribution to international cooperation promotion. Criteria: This annual initiative honors outstanding achievements in: 1. Pioneering work in facilitating global networking of HFIPS
Pesticides play a key role in controlling weeds, pests, and diseases in modern agriculture to promote crop yield. However, traditional pesticides tended to enter the atmosphere, water, and soil easily through runoff, volatilization, and leaching, resulting in serious environmental problems and even hazards to the health of human beings. It’s urgent to develop new methods to control the pesticide loss.
Astaxanthin (AST), distributed widely in aquatic animals, protects against oxidative stress, various diseases, and age-related degeneration. Many studies have shown AST with different chirality has different biological activities and functions, so it’s important to identify the chirality of AST. High performance liquid chromatography is generally used, but the analysis takes a long time and requires a relatively large amount of sample. Therefore, it is necessary to explore new technologies for identifying the chirality of AST.
