  • Synthesis of Fluorescent Carbon Quantum Dots from Dried Lemon Peel for
           Determination of Carmine in Drinks
    • Authors: Anmei Su; Di Wang; Xin Shu; Qingmei Zhong; Yongren Chen; Jiachen Liu; Yilin Wang
      Abstract: Carbon quantum dots(CQDs) with a quantum yield of 11% were synthesized via a simple, low-cost and green hydrothermal treatment using dried lemon peel as carbon source. The obtained CQDs showed a strong emission at the wavelength of 505 nm with an optimum excitation of 425 nm. Carmine with maximum absorption wavelength at 508 nm could selectively quench the fluorescence of CQDs. Based on this principle, a fluorescence probe was developed for carmine determination. The quenching mechanism of CQDs was elucidated. A linear relationship was found in the carmine concentration range of 0.20—30.00 mg/L with the detection limit(3σ/k) of 0.16 mg/L. Satisfactory results were achieved when the method was applied for the determination of carmine in soft drinks.

  • First-principles study of mechanical and electronic properties of Co-Sn
           intermetallics for lithium ion battery anode
    • Authors: Wei Dong; Ding Shen; Shaobin Yang; Bing Liang; Xuelei Wang; Yue Liu; Sinan Li
      Abstract: The equilibrium structures, formation energy, mechanical properties and electronic properties of Co-Sn intermetallics have been systemically studied by first-principles study. The results show that the CoSn phase is more thermodynamically stable than any other stoichiometry of Co-Sn intermetallics. With the increasing of Co content in Co-Sn intermetallics, the mechanical properties change into brittle behavior from ductility character. Adding proper amount of Co to Co-Sn intermetallics can improve the cycle performance for lithium ion battery anode. However, high Co content will lead to a poor cycle performance for Co-Sn intermetallics.

  • Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of novel selective thiol-based
           histone deacetylase(HDAC) VI inhibitors bearing indeno[1,2-c]pyrazole or
           benzoindazole scaffold
    • Authors: Qihao Xu; Shujia Yu; Yijun Cai; Jinyu Yang; Linxiang Zhao; Dan Liu
      Abstract: A series of thiol-based indeno[1,2-c]pyrazoles and benzoindazole compounds was designed and synthesized according to the structural specificity of histone deacetylase VI(HDAC6) and the structural characteristics of HDAC inhibitors. The inhibitory activities of the target compounds against HDAC6 and HDAC1 were screened by fluorescence analysis. Most of the target compounds showed moderate inhibitory activity against HDAC6(IC50=44—598 nmol/L). Among them, compound A-4 displayed the highest selectivity against HDAC6 and similar inhibitory activity(IC50=44 nmol/L) to that of the positive drug SAHA(IC50=41 nmol/L) against HDAC6.

  • Template effect of hydrophobically associating polymers on the
           construction of cuprous oxide micro structure
    • Authors: Lei Dong; Huan Liu; Yanjuan Li; Hongtao Zhang; Liangmin Yu; Lanni Jia
      Abstract: To determine the template effect of hydrophobically associating copolymers(HACPs) on the morphology of nano/micro structures, six HACPs were synthesized and used as templates to biomimetically synthesize cuprous oxide(Cu2O), an important semiconductor. This experiment showed a clear relationship between the associating state of the HACP molecules and the morphology of the Cu2O particles. Cu2O hollow spheres were preferentially prepared when the HACP molecules were in an intramolecular associating state. Furthermore, a Cu2O hexapod was easily ob-tained when the HACP molecules were in an intermolecular associating state. The morphologies of the Cu2O crystals prepared in the presence of the HACPs also confirmed this result.

  • Electrochemical behaviour of magnesium(II) on Ni electrode in LiCl-KCl
    • Authors: Shanshan Wang; Wei Han; Milin Zhang; Mei Li; Xiaoguang Yang; Yang Sun
      Abstract: The electrochemical behaviour of magnesium(II) and the formation mechanism of Mg-Ni alloys on Ni electrode were studied in LiCl-KCl eutectic using various electrochemical techniques. Cyclic voltammogram and square-wave voltammogram revealed that under-potential deposition of magnesium occurred on Ni electrode because Mg-Ni alloy compounds were formed. The thermodynamic properties of the Mg-Ni intermetallics, Mg2Ni and MgNi2, were determined using open circuit chronopotentiometry in the temperature range of 818―893 K. Moreover, the Mg-Ni alloys were produced by potentiostatic and galvanostatic electrolysis under different conditions and charac-terized by means of scanning electron microscopy(SEM) equipped with energy dispersive spectrometry(EDS) and X-ray diffraction(XRD). The experimental results indicate that Mg-Ni intermetallic compounds can be selectively produced by potentiostatic electrolysis.

  • Studies on new steroidal saponins from Allii macrostemonis bulbus and
           their antitumor activities
    • Authors: Hua Yao; Tong Wang; Qian Wu; Ying Liu; Peng Li; Xuwen Li; Yongri Jin
      Abstract: Two new steroidal saponins(2, 3) and two known compounds(1, 4) were isolated from 75% ethanol extract of Allii macrostemonis bulbus by various spectral methods. The two new steroidal saponins were respectively elucidated as (25S)-26-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-5α-furostanol-2α,3β,22,26-tetrol-3-O0-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→2)-[β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→3)]-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→4)-β-D-galactopyranoside(2) and 26-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-5α-furostanol-25(27)-ene-3β,22,26-tetrol-3-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→2)-[β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→3)]-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-β-D-galactopyranoside(3). Compound 4 was obtained from this medical plant for the first time. The activity experiments of proliferation inhibition on tumor cells were performed by cell counting kit-8(CCK-8) method for compound 2(25S-configuration) and its isomer(compound 1, 25R-configuration). The results show that compounds 1 and 2 have weak inhibition on lung cancer A549 cells, melanoma A375 cells and breast cancer MCF-7 cells as well as certain inhibitory effect on liver cancer HepG2 cells, and the inhibitory effect of compound 1 is stronger than that of compound 2.

  • Synthesis, in vitro coagulation activities and molecular docking studies
           on three L -histidine amide derivatives
    • Authors: Wei He; Anran Zhao; Jiajia Zou; Xuan Luo; Xiao Lin; Lisheng Wang; Cuiwu Lin
      Abstract: Three novel L-histidine amide derivatives were synthesized and the corresponding chemical structures were characterized by means of melting point analysis, IR, MS, 1H NMR as well as 13C NMR. The coagulation activities of the compounds were evaluated by an MOE(molecular operating environment) docking technique and coagulation test. The results obtained from molecular docking show that the interactions between the compounds and thrombin exhibit procoagulant activity in combination with an improved combinatory effect. Moreover, the results of in vitro coagulation tests show that the L-histidine amide derivatives feature coagulant activities in common coagulation pathways. Compared with the blank control group, the optimal shortening rates of compounds 1―3 were 39.08%(0.5 mmol/L), 22.94%(1.0 mmol/L) and 15.38%(0.0625 mmol/L), respectively.

  • Development of BCPDA-Eu 3+ -BAS labeled hepatitis B surface antibodies
    • Authors: Wenjia Tan; Zhixia Sun; Lili Xuan; Junling Li; Wenbing Xie; Chengyan He; Lihua Pan
      Abstract: The effect of the chelating agent 4,7-bis(chlorosulfophenyl)-1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-dicarboxylic acid (BCPDA) labeled hepatitis B surface antibodies(HBsAb) on time-resolved fluoroimmunoassays(TRFIA) was investigated. The labeling detection method was established. The biotin-streptavidin(BAS) system was introduced, and the multi-stage amplification effect of the BAS system was analyzed. It is found that the BCPDA-Eu3+-HBsAb-BAS fluorescent marker can emit strong fluorescence. Compared to BCPDA-Eu3+-HBsAb, BCPDA-Eu3+-HBsAb-BAS demonstrates an enhanced fluorescence intensity by over 10 times. This study provides a guidance for the next generation non-radio immunoassays in clinical diagnosis.

  • Bioremediation process and bioremoval mechanism of heavy metal ions in
           acidic mine drainage
    • Authors: Ying Zhao; Zhijing Fu; Xiaofei Chen; Guoyan Zhang
      Abstract: Acidic mine drainage(AMD) containing acidity and a broad range of heavy metal ions is classified as hazardous, and must be properly treated. The removal mechanism of heavy metal ions in acidic mine drainage containing Cu2+, Fe2+, and Zn2+ with biological method was studied here. Using 20 mmol/L ethanol as carbon source, Desulfovibrio marrakechensis, one of sulfate reducing bacteria(SRB) species, grew best at 35 °C and pH=6.72 with concentrations of 10, 55 and 32 mg/L for Cu2+, Fe2+ and Zn2+, respectively. The removal efficiency for each ion mentioned above was 99.99%, 87.64% and 99.88%, respectively. The mineralogy and surface chemistry of precipitates were studied by means of energy dispersive spectrometer(EDS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS), X-ray diffraction(XRD) combined with control tests. The experimental results demonstrate that the removal mechanism of heavy metal ions by Desulfovibrio marrakechensis is comprehensive function of chemical precipitation, adsorption and bioprecipitation. The biogenic iron sulfide solid was characterized as greigite(Fe3S4), while the zinc sulfide solid was characterized as sphalerite(ZnS).

  • Pressure-sensitive transistor fabricated from an organic semiconductor
           1,1′-dibutyl-4,4′-bipyridinium diiodide
    • Authors: Xianwei Fu; Yang Liu; Zhi Liu; Ning Dong; Tianyu Zhao; Dan Zhao; Gang Lian; Qilong Wang; Deliang Cui
      Abstract: Although organic semiconductors have attracted extensive interest and been utilized to fabricate a variety of optoelectronic devices, their electrical transportation characteristics under high pressure have rarely been investigated. However, the weak intermolecular interaction of organic semiconductors endows them with a pressure-sensitive crystal structure and electrical transportation performance, especially the latter. Herein, a new pressure-sensitive transistor was fabricated from an organic semiconductor 1,1'-dibutyl-4,4′-bipyridinium diiodide. It was found that this transistor exhibited increasing resistance as the pressure gradually increased and that it eventually shut off under a pressure of 288 MPa. Such a characteristic makes this organic semiconductor a potential candidate for the use in the fabrication of pressure-sensitive switches and regulators. In addition, these results shed light on the electrical performance of flexible organic optoelectronic devices working under high pressure levels resulted from the bending force.

  • Easily separated and recyclable amino-functionalized porous SiO 2 beads
           with 3D continuous meso/macropore channels
    • Authors: Qi Wang; Xiaohui Yang; Yanqiu Jiang; Hang Huo; Defeng Li; Kaifeng Lin; Xianzhu Xu
      Abstract: Amino-functionalized porous SiO2 beads with a diameter of 200—800 μm(PSB-NH2) have been success-fully synthesized by grafting 3-aminopropyl-triethoxysilane onto meso/macroporous silica beads(PSB), in which the PSB was prepared by hydrothermal synthetic method with a porous hard template anion-exchange resin. The as-prepared materials were characterized by means of nitrogen sorption and transmission electron micrographs(TEM), showing the presence of 3D interconnected and continuous large mesopores and macropores inside. The beads were used to catalyze Knoevenagel condensation and proved to be highly active and selective due to the high accessibility of the reactants to the amino groups via the continuous 3D meso/macopores. Notably, such material in bead format facilitates the extremely straightforward separation from reaction solution without any centrifugation or filtration. Moreover, PSB-NH2 proved to be a stable catalyst via leaching experiment test, and can be easily recovered and reused without significant loss of activity in successive catalytic cycles.

  • A comparative toxicity study of TiO 2 nanoparticles in suspension and
           adherent culture under the dark condition
    • Authors: Like Chen; Miao Liu; Su Leng; Zhuan Li
      Abstract: The present study focused on the different acute toxicity of TiO2 nanoparticles(TiO2 NPs) towards the bacteria in suspension culture and adherent culture under the dark conditions. The study investigated the bacteria toxicity with TiO2 NPs at different concentrations(1—2000 mg/L), sizes(10 nm, 35 nm) and specific surface areas in unit volume solution(0—224 m2/L) characterized by the cell viability, extracellular polymeric substances(EPS) release and biofilm formation. The bacteria in adherent culture was found to be more resistant against the toxicity of TiO2 NPs compared to that in suspension culture. An NP dose and surface area dependent(rather than the size) bacterial viability was observed in suspension culture, specifically the surface area positively correlated with the toxicity of TiO2 NPs. The size of TiO2 NPs, however, played a more critical role in toxicity of TiO2 NPs in adherent culture. Therefore, the surface area dependent toxicity of TiO2 NPs is a comprehensive parameter describing the dose and size dependent toxicity of TiO2 NPs. The electron microscopic(SEM, TEM, EDX) observations suggested the EPS release and biofilm formation, during aggregation of TiO2 NPs on the bacteria after 12 h cultivation in adherent culture under the dark condition. A possible toxic mechanism could be that “effective surface areas” that directly contact with the bacterial membrane greatly contributed to the toxicity of TiO2 NPs in both suspension culture and adherent culture. Therefore, as for the possible resistance mechanism, EPS secretion and subsequent biofilm formation may protect the bacteria against the toxicity of TiO2 NPs.

  • Emissive mononuclear Cu(I) triphenylphosphine complexes with
           functionalized 6- tert -butoxycarbonyl-2,2′-bipyridine
    • Authors: Yansheng Luo; Xuehua Zeng; Wanman Wang; Jinglin Chen; Lihua He; Mengli Zhang; Suijun Liu; Herui Wen
      Abstract: Two new emissive mononuclear copper(I) triphenylphosphine complexes with functionalized 6-tert-butoxycarbonyl-2,2′-bipyridine chelating ligands were prepared and characterized. Each Cu(I) cation has a markedly distorted P2N2 tetrahedral array with two different Cu—N bond distances, due to the addition of the bulky tert-butoxycarbonyl group at the 6-position of the 2,2′-bipyridyl ring. A weak low-energy broad absorption band appears at 330—500 nm in their CH2Cl2 solutions, which is influenced by the methylation of the 2,2′-bipyridyl ring. At room temperature, the photoluminescence can be clearly observed both in degassed CH2Cl2 solution and in the solid state, because of the introduction of the bulky tert-butoxycarbonyl substituent, and the emission properties are remarkably affected by both the methylation and the alkoxycarbonyl variation of the 2,2′-bipyridyl ring. It is shown that the introduction of the bulky tert-butoxycarbonyl group is favorable for improving the emission properties of the 6-alkoxycarbonyl-2,2′-bipyridine-based cuprous complexes.

  • Perovskite oxides La 0.8 Sr 0.2 Co 1‒x Fe x O 3 for CO oxidation and
           CO+NO reduction: Effect of redox property and surface morphology
    • Authors: Ke Yu; Tingting Diao; Junjiang Zhu; Zhen Zhao
      Abstract: This work aims to study the effect of redox property and surface morphology of perovskite oxides on the catalytic activity of CO oxidation and CO+NO reduction, with the redox property being tuned by doping Fe at the Co site of La0.8Sr0.2Co1‒x Fe x O3 and the surface morphology being modified by supporting La0.8Sr0.2CoO3 on various me-soporous silicas(i.e., SBA-16, SBA-15, MCF). Characteristic results show that the Fe doping improves the match of redox potentials, and SBA-16 is the best support of La0.8Sr0.2CoO3 when referring to the oxidation ability(e.g., the Co3+/Co2+ molar ratio). A mechanism for oxygen desorption from perovskite oxides is proposed based on O2-TPD experiments, showing the evolution process of oxygen released from oxygen vacancy and lattice framework. Cata-lytic tests indicate that La0.8Sr0.2CoO3 is the best for CO oxidation, and La0.8Sr0.2FeO3 is the best for CO+NO reduc-tion. The mechanism of CO+NO reduction changes as the reaction temperature increases, with X NO/X CO value de-creases from 2.4 at 250 °C to 1.0 at 400 °C. As for the surface morphology, La0.8Sr0.2CoO3 supported on SBA-16 possesses the highest surface Co3+/Co2+ molar ratio as compared to the other two, and shows the best activity for CO oxidation.

  • Electronic and spectroscopic properties of La 2 @C 112 isomers
    • Authors: Mingqian Wang; Boning Wang; Weiqi Li; Xin Zhou; Li Yang; Weiquan Tian
      Abstract: Among the 3352 isolated pentagon rule(IPR) isomers and 129073 non-IPR isomers satisfying adjacent pentagon pairs(APPs)≤2 of fullerene C112, the lowest-energy IPR and non-IPR isomers of C112 and C112 6- have been fully screened by the density functional tight-binding(DFTB) and density functional theory(DFT) methods for studying the electronic and spectroscopic properties of La2@C112. The structural features and infrared and absorption spectra of those isomers were analyzed in detail, and the characteristic fingerprint absorption peaks were assigned. To clarify the relative stabilities of La2@C112 isomers at high temperature, entropy contributions were determined at the B3LYP level. IPR isomer La2@C112(C 2:860136) is not the lowest-energy isomer but is one of the most important isomers. This is the first work that considers non-IPR C112 isomers when exploring the structure and properties of La2@C112.

  • Design and synthesis of novel bispecific molecules for inducing BRD4
           protein degradation
    • Authors: Shihui Wang; Yuming Song; Yue Wang; Yang Gao; Shanshan Yu; Qianqian Zhao; Xiangqun Jin; Haibin Lu
      Abstract: Proteolysis targeting chimeras(PROTACs) are bispecific molecules containing a target protein binder and an ubiquitin ligase binder connected by a linker. Recently, some heterobifunctional small molecule bromodomain-containing protein 4(BRD4) degraders based on the concept of PROTACs were designed to induce the degradation of BRD4 protein. Herein, we synthesized a new class of PROTAC BRD4 degraders. One of the most promising compound 22f exhibited robust potency of BRD4 inhibition with IC50 value of (9.4±0.6) nmol/L. Furthermore, compound 22f potently inhibited cell proliferation in BRD4-sensitive cell lines RS4;11 with IC50 value of (27.6±1.6) nmol/L and capable of inducing degradation of BRD4 protein at 0.5―1.0 μmol/L in the RS4;11 cells. These data establish that compound 22f is a potent and efficacious BRD4 degrader.

  • Synthesis and characterization of [Cu(N-MeIm) 4 (BF 4 ) 2 ] in ionic
    • Authors: Jingyang Wang; Meng Zhang; Xiaodong Xu; Jing Feng; Yanli Wang; Milin Zhang; Wei Han; Yitung Chen; Guoxin Tian
      Abstract: A new transition metal complex, [Cu(N-MeIm)4(BF4)2](N-MeIm=N-methylated imidazoles, BF4= tetrafluoroborate), was synthesized via the solvothermal method in ionic liquid. The ionic liquid acts as thermal decomposition reaction medium, soft temple agent and ligand compound. The central Cu(II) ion is coordinated by four N atoms from four N-methylated imidazole ligands, and the four N-methylated imidazole rings are perpendicular to each other. The crystal structure of [Cu(N-MeIm)4(BF4)2] was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The results of thermogravimetry(TG) and Fourier transform infrared spectrometry(FTIR) analyses were in accordance with that of crystal structure. The complex showed strong ligand-based absorbance with maximum wavelength at 208 and 231 nm, which are attributed to π-π* transition of the N-methylated imidazole ligands.

           systems and their extraction of L -tryptophan
    • Authors: Shuang Li; Shuni Li; Quanguo Zhai; Yucheng Jiang; Mancheng Hu
      Abstract: Phase behavior and extraction ability of aqueous two-phase systems(ATPs) consisting of ionic liquids(ILs), Cs2CO3 and water were investigated in this paper. Four kinds of ionic liquids, namely, 1-amyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide([C5mim]Br), 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide([C6mim]Br), 1-heptyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide ([C7mim]Br) and 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide([C8mim]Br), were examined to discuss the influence of alkyl groups. Binodal curves and tie-lines at 288.15, 298.15 and 308.15 K were obtained. The partitioning behavior for L-tryptophan in such ATPs was further investigated. The effect of temperature, pH, Cs2CO3 concentration and the structure of ionic liquids on the partitioning were discussed in detail.
