  • Oxidative Dehydrogenation of 1-Butene to 1,3-Butadiene Using CO 2 over
           Cr-SiO 2 Catalysts Prepared by Sol-gel Method
    • Authors: Biao Gao; Yajun Luo; Changxi Miao; Yinghong Yue; Weimin Yang; Weiming Hua; Zi Gao
      Abstract: A series of Cr-SiO2 catalysts with a Cr content(mass fraction) ranging from 0.5% to 9% was prepared by a sol-gel method. The catalysts were characterized by XRD, N2 adsorption, EDX elemental mapping, Raman spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, XPS and H2-TPR, and their catalytic behavior in the dehydrogenation of 1-butene to 1,3-butadiene(BD) using CO2 as a soft oxidant was studied. The initial BD yield is well correlated with the amount of Cr6+ in the fresh catalysts. The highest BD yield of ca. 34% is achieved on the catalysts with 5%―9% Cr at 600 °C and weight hourly space velocity(WHSV) of 4.5 g·g -1 cat ·h-1. The promoting effect of CO2 on the BD yield was ob-served, which can be attributed to the reaction coupling between a simple dehydrogenation of 1-butene and the re-verse water-gas shift reaction as well as regaining the oxidation state(lattice oxygen) of reduced Cr3+ species due to the mild oxidation ability of CO2. The Cr-SiO2 catalyst exhibits higher BD yield than the Cr catalyst supported on SBA-15, which is attributed to the higher amount of Cr6+ present on the former catalyst.

  • Removal of Low-concentration Ammonia from Ambient Air by Aluminophosphates
    • Authors: Chunyang Li; Shujie Wu; Guiyang Yu; Xuwei Yang; Gang Liu; Wenxiang Zhang
      Abstract: A series of aluminumphosphate materials was prepared and used as adsorbents for the removal of ammonia at low concentrations. The influence of various preparation parameters, including the pH value of sol, calcination temperature and molar ratio of P/Al, on the structure and surface properties as well as adsorption capacity were investigated. The results showed that large amount of P—OH present on the surface of aluminophosphates was suitable for the removal of ammonia. They were the major source of weak Brönsted acid sites and acted as the main active centers for capturing ammonia.

  • Design, Synthesis and Biological Activity of Novel Furocoumarin
           Derivatives as Stimulators of Melanogenesis and Tyrosinase in B16 Cells
    • Authors: Chao Niu; Deng Zang; Haji Akber Aisa
      Abstract: Sixteen novel and four known(4a, 4d, 4e, 4h) amine derivatives of furocoumarin were synthesized, then submitted to evaluation as stimulators of melanogenesis and tyrosinase in B16 murine cells. Among them, five compounds(4g, 4j―4m) showed potent activating effect on both melanogenesis and tyrosinase in vitro compared with positive control(8-MOP), the most widely used drugs for vitiligo in clinic. Noticeably, compounds 4h and 4j, which contain morpholine and piperazine, were recognized as the most effective stimulator of melanogenesis and tyrosianse in B16 cells separately. These derivatives may serve as lead compounds for further drug discovery for the treatment of vitiligo.

  • Facile Route to Enzyme Immobilization: Gloucose Oxidase Entrapped in
           Titania Under Mild Environmental Conditions and Consequent Electrochemical
           Sensor Response
    • Authors: Zhihui Yu; Dandan Liu; Yunqiao Li
      Abstract: A facile one-step method of immobilization of the combination of glucose oxidase(GOD) and cata-lase(CAT) in mesostructured TiO2 was proposed. Results obtained by transmission electron microspectroscopy and nitrogen adsorption-desorption analysis clearly show that the TiO2 mediated by the combination of GOD and CAT(CGC) has a large surface area and a narrow pore-size distribution. The CGC immobilized on mesostructured TiO2 exhibits direct electrochemistry and good electrocatalytic performance without any electron mediator.

  • Effect of Thermal Cycles on the Thermal Expansion Behavior of T700 Carbon
           Fiber Bundles
    • Authors: Guoliang Geng; Xiaofei Ma; Hongbin Geng; Yiyong Wu
      Abstract: The relationships between the coefficient of thermal expansion(CTE) of T700 carbon fiber bundles(CFBs) and the thermal cycles were investigated. The microstructure of T700 CFBs was analyzed with Raman spectra and XRD before and after the thermomechanical test. The results indicated that the T700 CFBs exhibited negative expan-sion in the direction of parallel fibers in the temperature range of‒150―150 °C. The thermal strain that occurred during the heating and the cooling thermal cycle had an unclosed curve that served as the loop. When the experimen-tal load was the same, the position of strain loop tended to move upward, and the length of the specimen increased continuously with the thermal cycles increasing. The microstructural analysis suggested that the degree of structural order and the degree of orientation along the fiber axis were improved with the increase of thermal cycles. The change of microstructure parameters could be the primary cause of the negative CTE’s variation within the T700 CFBs.

  • Effect of Phosphoric Acid on HZSM-5 Catalysts for Prins Condensation to
           Isoprene from Isobutylene and Formaldehyde
    • Authors: Xue Yu; Yuewei Zhang; Bing Liu; Huiyong Ma; Yan Wang; Qiang Bao; Zhenlü Wang
      Abstract: A series of HZSM-5 zeolites modified with different amounts of phosphoric acid(P/HZSM-5) was pre-pared. The physicochemical features of the P/HZSM-5 catalysts were characterized via X-ray diffraction(XRD), N2 adsorption-desorption, NH3-temperature programmed desorption(NH3-TPD) and Fourier tranform infrared(FTIR) spectra of the adsorbed pyridine, and the performances of the catalysts for Prins condensation to isoprene from iso-butylene and formaldehyde were investigated. The maximum isobutene conversion and isoprene selectivity were 10.3% and 94.6% on the HZSM-5 catalyst with a Si/Al molar ratio of 600 using 5%(mass fraction) phosphoric acid. The phosphoric acid modification not only modulated the amount of acidic sites but also regulated the acid type. An appropriate amount of weak Lewis and Brönsted acid sites served as the active sites for the condensation of isobutene with formaldehyde, and the strong acid sites could cause side reactions and coke deposition.

  • Identification and Evaluation of a Panel of Ginsenosides from Different
           Red Ginseng Extracts with Nootropic Effect
    • Authors: Yulin Dai; Ying Zhang; Xu Zhao; Youjin Jeon; Fei Zheng; Li Ma; Hao Yue
      Abstract: Red ginseng has been gradually discovered to have pharmacological and physiological effects. It is well known that the most important bioactive components of ginseng are ginsenosides. The nootropic effect of ginsenosides from nine different red ginseng extracts was evaluated here. Nine groups of mice were perfused with different concentrations of nine red ginseng extracts, respectively, and two groups of mice with distilled water. The nootropic effect of ginsenosides on mice was evaluated with behavior tests and a biochemical indicator study. The extracts were identified by rapid resolution liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole-time-of-flight mass spectrome-try(RRLC-Q-TOF-MS). Furthermore, principal component analysis(PCA) was used to analyze the contribution of chemical components from different ginseng groups. The extracts with the most and the weakest effective nootropic were found. It is notable that extract processing is a very important factor to decide pharmacological functions of ginseng extracts. As a conclusion, the most effective extract method for ginsenosides has been found. A panel of 13 ginsenosides has been screened out as chemical markers with nootropic effect, which include high level ginsenosides Ra0, Rb1, Rc, Rb2, Rb3, Re, Rd, and Rg1 and low level ginsenosides mRb1, mRc, mRb2, mRd, and F2. Low level ginsenosides were first time to be discovered as possible nootropic compounds. This method may shed light on fast discovery of bioactive compounds of medicinal plants with low level compounds.

  • Sustainable Synthesis of Hierarchically Porous Silicalite-1 Zeolite by
           Steam-assisted Crystallization of Solid Raw Materials Without Secondary
    • Authors: Xiaofang Liu; Shangjing Zeng; Runwei Wang; Zongtao Zhang; Shilun Qiu
      Abstract: Hierarchical silicalite-1 zeolites were obtained from the direct conversion of a mixture of ground solid raw materials via a steam-assisted crystallization(SAC) method without involvement of any mesoscale template. Only a trace amount of water was necessary during the crystallization, implying that the amount of water can be dramatically reduced, which still offers easy separation and high yields. The simple procedure involved only grinding and heating, which not only saves resources and energy, but also significantly reduces the discharge of eco-friendly synthesis of zeolites for practical applications. Compared to conventional bulk silicalite-1, the nanosized hierarchical zeolites with MFI structure show enhanced removal capabilities for methylene blue owing to their hierarchical porosity.

  • Site-specific PEGylation of Human Growth Hormone by Mutated Sortase A
    • Authors: Hui Shi; Qingyang Shi; James T. Oswald; Ying Gao; Leijiao Li; Yunhui Li
      Abstract: Human growth hormone(hGH), a classic therapeutic protein, which promotes growth and wound healing, is released from the pituitary gland. As a protein drug, its short half-life is its main barrier to therapeutic efficacy. Various strategies have been designed to prolong its serum half-life, the most common of which is the conjugation with polyethylene glycol(PEG), as this has been shown to significantly extend protein’s serum half-life. However, PEGylation often results in random conjugation, which can lead to impaired protein function and hinder purification, characterization and evaluation of the PEGylated protein. Therefore, site specific PEGylation is a promising direction for PEG-protein conjugation. Here we took advantages of the mutated sortase A(7M) enzyme, which can enzymatically ligate the universal α-amino acids to a C-terminal tagged protein. This then allows specific modification of the C-terminal of hGH with PEG. This site-specific bound PEG-hGH has similar efficacy, receptor binding and cell proliferation as wild-type hGH; however, pharmacokinetic analysis demonstrates that its serum half-life is almost 24 times that of wild-type hGH. Herein, we provided a promising advancement in the development of site specific PEGylated therapeutic proteins.

  • Interference Adsorption Mechanisms of Dimethoate, Metalaxyl, Atrazine,
           Malathion and Prometryn in a Sediment System Containing Coexisting
           Pesticides/Heavy Metals Based on Fractional Factor Design(Resolution V)
           Assisted by 2D-QSAR
    • Authors: Xiaolei Wang; Qing Li; Minghao Li; Yu Li
      Abstract: The mechanisms of adsorption of pesticides(dimethoate, metalaxyl, atrazine, malathion and prometryn) and heavy metals(Cu, Cd, Pb, Zn and Ni) coexisting in sediments, with pesticides as target pollutants, and the influence of their main effects and double-order interaction effects were studied using the experimental design module in the Minitab software package with a 210‒3 fractional factorial design method at resolution V. The main, double-order interaction, synergistic and antagonistic effect values of pollutant concentrations influencing the adsorption of pesticides were set as dependent variables, while various quantum chemical parameters of pesticides were set as independent variables, and two-dimensional quantitative structure activity relationship(2D-QSAR) models were established by stepwise regression to reveal the adsorption mechanisms of pesticides in a composite contamination system. The main effects of pollutants concentration played the primary role in the adsorption of dimethoate and malathion(the rates of contributions were 53.54% and 56.46%, respectively), while double-order interaction effects were primarily responsible for metalaxyl, atrazine and prometryn adsorption(the rates of contributions were 79.05%, 60.21% and 57.89%, respectively) in the pesticide/heavy metals coexisting sediment system. The synergistic effects of the main effects and double-order interaction effects of pollutants concentration(synergistic effects) played a leading role in adsorption of malathion and prometryn(the rates of contributions were 70.61% and 69.61%, respectively), while antagonistic effects of the main effects and double-order interaction effects of pollutants(antagonistic effects) played a dominant role in the adsorption of dimethoate, metalaxyl and atrazine(the rates of contributions were 58.82%, 56.89% and 58.24%, respectively). Moreover, the correlation coefficient value(R2) ranged from 0.986 to 0.999(>0.8783) in the 2D-QSAR model, while the standard deviation(SD) ranged from 0.006 to 0.066 and the F test values were 22.684―199.544, indicating the model has good predictive ability and fit. The 2D-QSAR model revealed a significant correlation(P=0.05) between the main effects of pollutants concentrations on pesticides adsorption(main effect values) and the most positive hydrogen atomic charge(qH+), the highest occupied molecular orbital energy(EHOMO) and the dipole moment(μ). Furthermore, double-order interaction effect values of pollutant concentrations influenced the adsorption of pesticides(double-order interaction effect values), and the most positive atomic charge(q+), qH+, and the lowest occupied molecular orbital energy(ELUMO) were significantly correlated. The qH+, ELUMO and μ of pesticides were found to be significant factors promoting pesticides adsorption, while the q+ and ELUMO of pesticides were significant inhibiting factors(P=0.05). Overall, this study provides a theoretical basis for further realization of combined pollution control of pesticide pollutants in complex environmental systems.

  • Two Coordination Compounds Bearing Bis(2-dimethylaminoethyl) Ether:
           Syntheses, Crystal Structures and Catalytic Application to the Henry
    • Authors: Chao Liu; Yijie Liu; Lili Zhang; Kun Jiang; Li Zhang
      Abstract: Two novel coordination compounds, namely [Cu2(BDMAEE)(CH3COO)4] n (1) and [Ni(BDMAEE)Cl2](2) [BDMAEE=bis(2-dimethylaminoethyl) ether], have been synthesized and characterized by IR, elemental analysis, PXRD and X-ray single crystal diffraction. In compound 1, the central Cu(II) ion is coordinated with four oxygen atoms and one nitrogen atom, forming a distorted square pyramidal geometry. The asymmetric units composed of one Cu(II) ion, two acetates and a half of BDMAEE are connected to form an infinite 1D chain structure by the bridging acetate and the BDMAEE.

  • Experimental Investigation and Thermodynamic Modeling of the NaCl-NaNO 3
           -Na 2 SO 4 Ternary System
    • Authors: Xiang Li; Zejie Fei; Yang Wang; Leidong Xie
      Abstract: Molten salts as heat transfer and storage materials have been used to nuclear energy and concentrated solar power(CSP) applications. In this work, the system of molten salt mixture based on thermodynamic principles was designed as thermal energy storage(TES) materials. The substitutional solution model can be employed to describe the Gibbs energies of all liquid phase. Thermodynamic model parameters for the NaCl-NaNO3-Na2SO4 subsystems were conducted by thermodynamic evaluation and optimization based on experimental phase-equilibria data. Thus, a set of self-consistent thermodynamic database was eventually obtained to reliably calculate the whole phase diagram and thermodynamic properties for the NaCl-NaNO3-Na2SO4 ternary system. The results manifest that the eutectic point of theternary system located at T=280 °C and xNaCl=8.4%, \({x_{NaN{O_3}}}\) =86.3% and \({x_{N{a_2}S{O_4}}}\) =5.3%. Moreover, the results predicted were verified experimentally using differential scanning calorimetry(DSC) and the agreement between the measured value[T=(287±2) °C] and predicted value(T=280 °C) was satisfactory. Thus, the thermodynamic calculation method will be used to design and develop novel molten salt mixture as thermal energy storage materials.

  • Surface Properties and Etherification in Microemulsion Systems of Novel
           Brönsted Acid Surfactants
    • Authors: Mingqing Yang; Zhonglin Wei; Haifeng Duan; Yingjie Lin
      Abstract: Novel Brönsted acid-surfactants with different alkyl chains were synthesized via a two-step process, and their surface properties were studied. The critical micelle concentration(cmc), surface tension at the cmc(γcmc), and ability of these compounds to lower the surface tension by 0.02 N/m(C20 and pC20) were investigated at 25 and 40 °C. The molecular architecture of the compounds strongly influenced these physicochemical parameters. The ability of these compounds to lower surface tension was found to be good. Etherification in microemulsions formed by these surfactants as well as dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid(DBSA) was performed; surfactants 3a and 3b were found to be much more efficient than DBSA.

  • Synthesis of Bisboronic Acids and Their Selective Recognition of Sialyl
           Lewis X Antigen
    • Authors: Yan’en Wang; Xueyan Li; Hua Chen; Mengyuan Zhu; Xiaoliu Li
      Abstract: The development of sensors that recognize Lewis oligosaccharides can help the diagnosis and early detection of cancer. Herein, we reported the design and synthesis of a series of anthracene-based bisboronic acids (9a—9e) with different N-substituents near the boronic acid unit. Among them, compound 9a could recognize sialyl Lewis X(sLex) with selectivity over other Lewis sugars, and could significantly stain sLex-expressing HEPG2 cells with selectivity over the range of 0.1—10 μmol/L. Compound 9a possibly has two properly positioned boronic acids caused by the steric hindrance by the near N-benzyl substituent group, which empower its sLex selectivity and higher binding affinity.

  • Synthesis of Highly Sensitive Fluorescent Probe Based on Tetrasubstituted
           Imidazole and Its Application for Selective Detection of Ag + Ion in
           Aqueous Media
    • Authors: Zhiming Mi; Yao Chen; Xiaodong Chen; Liuqing Yan; Qiang Gu; Hanqi Zhang; Chunhai Chen; Yumin Zhang
      Abstract: A small molecule fluorescent probe, 4-[2-(4-chlorophenyl)-4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazol-1-yl]aniline(L) for detecting Ag+ ion was gently synthesized via one-pot multi-component reaction catalyzed by H3[PW12O40] under solvent-free microwave irradiation. When the concentration of Ag+ ion changed from 0 to 8.0×10−6 mol/L in the solu-tion of H2O/CH3OH(19:1, volume ratio), the fluorescence emission spectrum was blue-shifted and accompanied by a gradual increase in fluorescence intensity with a low detection limit of 3.0×10−11 mol/L. Moreover, UV-Vis absorp-tion titration experiment demonstrated a 1:1 stoichiometric ratio and an association constant of (9.95±0.44)×105 L/mol between probe L and Ag+ ion, and thus their complexation mechanism was also proposed and verified. More importantly, this fluorescent probe was remarkably specific for Ag+ ion under the interference of other metal ions and exhibited a wide pH application range of 4.0―8.0. Additionally, preliminary application of this probe was also car-ried out and satisfactory results were shown.

  • Visible-light Photochromism of Phosphomolybdic Acid/ZnO Composite
    • Authors: Wentian Sun; Yunheng Si; Haitao Jing; Zhaojun Dong; Chunxu Wang; Yupeng Zhang; Lichen Zhao; Wei Feng; Yan Yan
      Abstract: A novel photochromic hybrid ZnO was synthesized by doping with phosphomolybdic acid(PMoA). It could respond to visible light and fade in color when treated with hydrogen peroxide(H2O2). The microstructure and photochromic properties were investigated via X-ray diffraction(XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(FTIR), scanning electron microscopy(SEM), transmission electron microscopy(TEM), ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy(UV-Vis) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS). The XRD patterns show that the prepared ZnO is pure and has a hexagonal wurtzite structure. The FTIR results demonstrate the existence of a strong interaction between PMoA and ZnO. Due to PMoA doping, the rough surface morphology of ZnO became smooth, as verified by the SEM images. The TEM images illustrate that pure ZnO exhibits a polycrystalline structure with irregular morphology. PMoA was wrapped on the surface of ZnO. After visible-light irradiation, the composite changed from slight yellow to blue and returned to the original color in the presence of H2O2. The composite had good photosensitivity and photochromic reversibility. The photochromic process was in accord with photoinduced electrons transfer mechanism.

  • Effect of VO 4 3– Substitution on the Electrochemical Properties of a
           LiSn 2 (PO 4 ) 3 Anode Material
    • Authors: Xiaojing Feng; Jun He; Xiaoran Wang; Gongkai Wang; Xin Wang; Huifen Peng
      Abstract: LiSn2(PO4)3 anion was used to partially substitute for VO43– in the Nasicon compound of LiSn2(PO4)3via a sol-gel method. XRD analysis revealed that the LiSn2(PO4)3-substituted samples did not have a single LiSn2(PO4)3 phase, and some secondary phases like SnO2 and SnP2O7 appeared. Introduction of the LiSn2(PO4)3 anion did not prevent the LiSn2(PO4)3 compound from decomposing during the initial lithiation; however the LiSn2(PO4)3 anion substitution remarkably enhanced the rate capability and cycling performance of the products because they reduced the charge transfer impedance, increased the lithium ion diffusion, and strengthened the role of the Li3VO4 matrix due to the precipitation of the Li3VO4 phase. Of the substituted samples, the sample with a nominal composition of LiSn2(PO4)2.5(VO4)0.5 delivered a capacity of 449.2 mA·h/g at a rate of 0.25 C after 25 cycles and 373.8 mA·h/g at 2 C rate. Those values surpassed some previous reports on LiSn2(PO4)3 and the LiSn2(PO4)3/C composites. Accordingly, the partial substitution of phosphorus by vanadium in LiSn2(PO4)3 is a feasible technique to remarkably improve its electrochemical properties.

  • Thermodynamic Evaluation of NaF-MF n (M=Be, U, Th) Systems for Molten Salt
    • Authors: Shuang Wu; Xiang Li; Peng Zhang; Xuehui An; Leidong Xie
      Abstract: The phase diagrams of NaF-BeF2, NaF-ThF4 and NaF-UF4 systems were assessed based on thermodynamic principles, and diverse thermodynamic models were adapted to different systems. Associate solution model (ASM) was used to describe the Gibbs energies of liquid phase of the NaF-BeF2 system, whereas other systems(NaF-ThF4 and NaF-UF4) were treated with the substitutional solution model(SSM) and intermediate compounds were described as stoichiometric compounds according to the Neumann-Kopp rule. All the thermodynamic model parameters were optimized by the least squares procedure until good coincidence was achieved between the calculated results and the experimental data. The derived thermodynamic parameters will be merged into the NaF-BeF2-ThF4-UF4 database to develop the thorium molten salt reactor(TMSR) project.

  • Porous Organic Frameworks-derived Porous Carbons with Outstanding Gas
           Adsorption Performance
    • Authors: Tingting Yan; Guolong Xing; Saikat Das; Teng Ben; Shilun Qiu
      Abstract: A series of porous carbon materials was synthesized via high temperature pyrolysis from well-defined and thermally stable precursors, namely porous organic frameworks(POFs), in inert atmosphere. The porous carbon materials showed enhanced gas adsorption capacities together with increased heat of adsorption and stronger affinity between the frameworks and the gases as compared to the precursor materials. To exemplify, sample C-POF-TBBP-1000 with a high BET surface area of 1290 m2/g can adsorb 2.8 mmol/g CH4(273 K, 101.325 kPa), 5.4 mmol/g CO2(273 K, 101.325 kPa) and 2.2% H2(mass fraction, 77 K, 101.325 kPa), thereby surpassing most other porous adsorbent materials reported till date. The study highlights the potential of porous carbons derived from novel porous organic framework structures for gas adsorption applications.
