There are 5 new doctors （李启虔、姜鸿兴、胡蓓蓓、王嘉琦、徐步青）and 2 new Masters （张庆、许文丽）graduated from the group this term. On July 12, we had a special dinner celebrating their success in pursuing their degrees. Lots of spirit, beer and wine in the evening. We wish them a prosperous and happy future!
I wrote a poem for Jiaqi upon her request, and would like to refer it to all the graduated students, no matter where you boys and girls are going. Enjoy life and good luck!
On May 23, Jiaqi（王嘉琦）, Hongxin（姜鸿兴）and Buqing （徐 步青） successfully did their PhD viva. The assessment panel included Professors Chen Yingjun（陈颖军）, Tian Chongguo（田崇国）, Zhang Yanlin（章炎麟）, Chen Duohong（陈多宏）, Ding Xiang（丁翔） and Hu Weiwei（胡伟伟）.
Together, in the group we had also Li Qiqian (李启虔，PhD), Hu Beibei (胡蓓蓓，PhD), Xu Wenli (许文丽，MSc) and Zhang Qing (张庆，MSc) passed their viva these days.
Congratulations to the new doctors and masters!
Hu Beibei’s paper “Uptake and translocation of organophosphate esters by plants: Impacts of chemical structure, plant cultivar and copper” was published in Environment International . Congratulations!
- Distributions of OPEs varied among plant cultivars but shared similar trends.
- Plant root bioaccumulated more ER-OPEs than OC-OPEs.
- Cu inhibited ER-OPEs root uptake by interacting with electron-rich structure.
- Hydrophobicity was critical in OPEs acropetal translocation.
