Preliminary experiment on a novel photovoltaic-thermoelectric system in summer (2019)
Journal Article
Li, G., Shittu, S., zhou, K., Zhao, X., & Ma, X. (2019). Preliminary experiment on a novel photovoltaic-thermoelectric system in summer. Energy, 188, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.energy.2019.116041

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd Compared with the PV electricity generation, the hybrid Photovoltaic-thermoelectric (PV-TE) can generate more electricity due to its ability to utilize a wider solar spectrum than the PV. The PV-TE employing micro-channel heat pip... Read More about Preliminary experiment on a novel photovoltaic-thermoelectric system in summer.

PVC Does Not Influence Cadmium Uptake or Effects in the Mussel (Mytilus edulis) (2020)
Journal Article
Li, J., Chapman, E. C., Shi, H., & Rotchell, J. M. (in press). PVC Does Not Influence Cadmium Uptake or Effects in the Mussel (Mytilus edulis). Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, https://doi.org/10.1007/s00128-020-02789-x

Microplastics have become a global concern in recent years. In this study, we studied (i) whether the presence of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) microparticles may affect cadmium (Cd) uptake in mussel (Mytilus edulis); and (ii) the biological effects of PV...
