BEIJING, March 18 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.


A team of Chinese scientists developed a strategy utilizing the energy between seawater and freshwater to efficiently generate "green" hydrogen.

The researchers from Fudan University fabricated a tandem of high-performance ion exchange membrane and electrode, installed at estuaries to harvest osmotic energy and drive hydrogen production.

The integrated device demonstrates a consistent and quick alkaline hydrogen evolution rate for more than 12 days under the artificial salinity gradient, according to a study published recently in the journal Nature Sustainability.


A Chinese research team has developed a multicellular scaffold based on inorganic bioceramics for treating tendon-to-bone injuries.

Restriction of motor activity due to loss of natural structure is a major cause of decreased life quality in patients suffering from tendon-to-bone injuries.

To solve this problem, the research team, led by the Shanghai Institute of Ceramics (SIC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, combined manganese silicate (MS) nanoparticles with tendon/bone-related cells to construct an immunomodulatory multicellular scaffold to achieve integrated tendon-to-bone regeneration.


Without a driver, an online car-hailing service arrives as scheduled, the passengers sit in the back seat, and the steering wheel turns autonomously. This is not a movie clip, nor a novel plot, but a common commuting scene in Yongchuan District, southwest China's Chongqing Municipality.

Traveling in such a self-driving vehicle in Chongqing, a mountainous city known for its complex and multidimensional urban transportation roads and urban design, is more challenging than I could imagine before my very first attempt. Enditem
