 Biomass conversion: A hot-water treatment

Hydrogen ions produced in very hot water are used in the eco-friendly hydrolysis of cellulose. Other research highlights from Nature China include Gadd45a regulation, Stem-cell transplantation: Cut risks to the bone, Asian dust: Where the dust settles, Quantum dots: Two is not a crowd, Thin films: The stress test

19 September 2007

Nature China will highlight the best research coming out of Mainland China and Hong Kong, providing scientists from around the world with a convenient portal into publications drawn from across all scientific disciplines.

Gadd45a regulation: Keep in touch
Gadd45a suppresses cancer growth by regulating 'switches' that dictate cell adhesion and contact inhibition

Biomass conversion: A hot-water treatment
Hydrogen ions produced in very hot water are used in the eco-friendly hydrolysis of cellulose

Stem-cell transplantation: Cut risks to the bone
Scientists in Hong Kong have identified risk factors and mortality predictors of hepatic veno-occlusive disease in children undergoing haematopoietic stem-cell transplantation

Asian dust: Where the dust settles
Scientists in China can trace the origin of dust-storm particles by their dolomite content

Quantum dots: Two is not a crowd
Scientists in China are revealing the electronic structures of quantum dots in a many-dot system

Thin films: The stress test
Researchers have developed a silicon plate device that can accurately measure stresses in the thin-film materials used in tiny electromechanical gadgets
