Gonglab held fun games

This Saturday, our group held fun games aiming to relieve us postgraduates from pressure and heavy research work. We are divided into six groups, A, B, C, D, E, and F, each with 10~11 people. The long-awaited athletics events included throwing sandbags, teleporting balloon relay, multi-person walking, hula hoop teleportation, etc. These events are truly […]

Prof. Zhi-Pan Liu visited us today!

Prof. Zhi-Pan Liu from Fudan University, China, visited us today and gave an IREC2 lecture with the title “A new computational method based on machine learning and its application in chemical reactions”. How to design highly efficient and specific catalytic materials has always been a basic problem in physical chemistry. Among them, the characterization and […]

JACS: FeO6 Octahedral Distortion Activates Lattice Oxygen in Perovskite Ferrite

Modulating lattice oxygen in metal oxides that conducts partial oxidation of methane in balancing C-H activation and syngas selectivity remains challenging. This paper describes the discovery of distorting FeO6 octahedra in La1-xCexFeO3 (x=0, 0.25 0.5, 0.75, 1) orthorhombic perovskites for the promotion of lattice oxygen activation. By combined electrical conductivity relaxation (ECR) measurements and density […]
