A new species, Cercyon (Clinocercyon) hanseni sp. nov., is described from Jiangxi and Guizhou Provinces, China. Based on a study of type material, the following synonymies are proposed for the species occurring in China: Cercyon signifer Hebauer, 2002 is synonymized with C. (s. str.) berlovi Shatrovskiy, 1999, Cercyon guangxiensis Wu et Pu, 1995 with Cercyon (s. str.) quisquilius (Linnaeus, 1761), Cercyon nigrostriatus Wu et Pu, 1995 with Cercyon (Clinocercyon) lineolatus (Motschulsky, 1863), Cercyon vicinaloides d?Orchymont, 1925, and Cercyon tropisternus Wu et Pu, 1995 with Cercyon (Paracycreon) laminatus Sharp, 1873, and Cercyon linearis Wu et Pu, 1995 with Cercyon (Paracycreon) subsolanus Balfour- Browne, 1939. A lectotype is designated for Cercyon vicinalis var. vicinaloides d?Orchymont, 1925. Three Palaearctic species are recorded from China for the first time: Cercyon (s. str.) ovillus Motschulsky, 1860, Cercyon (s. str.) olibrus Sharp, 1874 and Cercyon (s. str.) unipunctatus (Linnaeus, 1758). Additional faunistic data from China are provided for Cercyon berlovi and Cercyon nigriceps (Marsham, 1802). Cercyon amplelevatus Jia, 1995 is transferred to the genus Armostus Sharp, 1890. A checklist of all Cercyon species recorded from China is presented, along with a tentative identification key. © 2011 Magnolia Press. Source

The characteristics of dental materials of diverse nature are briefly described and their advantages and disadvantages are analyzed. A promising direction in dental materials science is development of silicate materials, which have gained increasingly wider popularity and recognition in the last few years. Such materials are used to fabricate dental prostheses from monolithic blanks and by layer-wise deposition of their fine powders on metallic substrates. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Nipponocercyon satoi sp. nov. is described from the mountains of Zhenjiang and Jiangxi Provinces in Southwest China. Although the species bears all synapomorphies of Nipponocercyon Satô, 1963, it differs substantially from the other two species of the genus by its Pacrillum-like habitus (i.e. small, compact and strongly convex body with reduced surface sculpturing). The new species is compared in detail with the other two Nipponocercyon species as well as with Pacrillum Orchymont, 1941 and Megasternum Mulsant, 1844. The generic diagnosis of Nipponocercyon is adapted, and reasons for assigning the new species to Nipponocercyon are discussed. Copyright © 2015 Magnolia Press. Source

An algorithm for calculation of the chemical equilibrium of a multicomponent heterogeneous thermodynamic system on the basis of the maximum-entropy principle has been developed. The model obtained is universal and can be used for a large number of high-temperature processes, including the combustion of alternative fuels in different-type heat engines. On the basis of the algorithm proposed, the equilibrium composition of the combustion products of hydrogen-containing fuels was calculated for different initial conditions. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.

A detailed examination of specimens of Cryptopleurum sichuanicum Ryndevich, 2005 from high altitudes of Sichuan Province, China, revealed that the species belongs in the genus Nipponocercyon Satô, 1963 previously endemic to Japan. The species is here transferred in Nipponocercyon, and N. sichuanicus (Ryndevich, 2005), comb. n. is redescribed and compared with N. shibatai Satô, 1963. The male genitalia of N. sichuanicus is described for the first time. An adapted diagnosis of Nipponocercyon is provided, and reasons for the inclusion of N. sichuanicus into Nipponocercyon and the general distribution of the genus are discussed. © Martin Fikáček et al.
