Non-metallic electronic regulation in CuCo oxy-/thio-spinel as OER electrocatalysts
Researchers successfully prepared oxy-spinel of Cu1-xCo2+xO4 nanaoflakes and thio-spinel of Cu1-xCo2+xS4 nanospheres by a facile hydrothermal method. The resulting Cu1-xCo2+xO4 exhibits higher catalytic performances toward OER in alkaline media than Cu1-xCo2+xS4 for water oxidation. Experimentally and theoretically, the superior OER catalytic activity of Cu1-xCo2+xO4 nanoflakes mainly depends on the strongly-electronegativity of oxygen element in spinel structure, which determines the higher valence state of Co active sites in CuCo oxyspinel.

A quarter of known bee species haven't appeared in public records since the 1990s
Researchers at the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) in Argentina have found that, since the 1990s, up to 25% of reported bee species are no longer being reported in global records, despite a large increase in the number of records available. While this does not mean that these species are all extinct, it might indicate that these species have become rare enough that no one is observing them in nature. The findings appear January 22 in the journal One Earth. (2021-01-22)
