  • Tea Polyphenols Reducing Lipopolysaccharide-induced Inflammatory Responses
           in RAW264.7 Macrophages via NF- κ B Pathway
    • Abstract: The anti-inflammatory activity of tea polyphenols(TPs) in RAW264.7 macrophages stimulated by lipopolysaccharide(LPS) was investigated in this paper. RAW264.7 macrophages were treated with different concentrations of TP(0, 12.5, 25, 50, 100, and 200 µg/mL) and then stimulated by LPS. Another blank control group was set up. The expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines associated with the nuclear factor-kappa B(NF-κB) signaling pathway was investigated before and after TP treatment. Pretreatment of RAW264.7 cells with TP decreased the expression of tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α), interleukin-6(IL-6) and interleukin 1 beta(IL-1β) pro-inflammatory cytokines. In addition, TP inhibited the phosphorylation of p65 and IκB by blocking the phosphorylation and the degradation of NF-κB inhibitor protein. In conclusion, TP exerts anti-inflammatory effects by regulating the release of inflammatory mediators via the NF-κB signaling pathway.

  • Highly Active Pd-PEPPSI Complexes for Suzuki-Miyaura Cross-coupling of
           Aryl Chlorides: an Investigation on the Effect of Electronic Properties
    • Abstract: Three new Pd-pyridine enhanced precatalyst preparation stabilization and initiation(PEPPSI) complexes with halogen groups on the N-heterocyclic carbene and pyridine were prepared. Their structures have been clearly characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and X-ray single-crystal diffraction. The effects of the electronic properties of halogen groups on the catalytic activity in the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of aryl chlorides were investigated. These Pd-PEPPSI complexes could catalyze the cross-coupling reaction efficiently with a low catalyst loading(0.05%, molar ratio) at room temperature and the products were obtained in high yields.

  • Supplemental Feeding of Laying Hens with Wood Vinegar to Decrease the
           Ratio of n-6 to n-3 Fatty Acids in Eggs
    • Abstract: A balanced ratio of fatty acids n-6 to n-3 in chicken eggs is important for health and to help prevent and manage obesity and other diseases. Traditionally, fish oil or flax seed has been utilized as feed additives to decrease the ratio of n-6 to n-3(n-6:n-3) fatty acids in eggs. The hull of spina date seed(HSDS) is a common agricultural waste product in China, from which wood vinegar(HSDSWV) may be derived. This study evaluated HSDSWV as a sup-plement in hen feeds to improve the quality of eggs and decrease the ratio of fatty acids n-6:n-3. HSDSWV was ob-tained via carbonization, and refined. Six concentrations(nil to 0.5%) of HSDSWV were prepared and fed to 6 hen groups, respectively, for 50 d. The fatty acids of the hen’s egg yolks were analyzed by gas chromatography/electron ionization-mass spectrometry(GC/EI-MS) in the selected ion monitoring(SIM) mode. The 0.2% HSDSWV resulted in the best egg yolk quality, with a lower percentage of linoleic acid(C18:2n6) and higher percentages of cis-5,8,11,14,17-eicosapentaenoic acid(C20:5n3) and cis-4,7,10,13,16,19-docosahexaenoic acid(C22:6n3), and thus a lower n-6:n-3 ratio compared with the other HSDSWV concentrations. In addition, the eggs contained higher levels of yolk fat and egg yolk than the controls did. In conclusion, to modify the fatty acid composition of hens’ eggs and obtain a balanced ratio of n-6:n-3, 0.2% HSDSWV may be considered suitable as a dietary supplement in hens’ feed.

  • Controllable Synthesis of Mesoporous Multipods for Enhanced Nano-bio
    • Abstract: Precise manipulation of surface topology has been being a great challenge for the fabrication of functional nanomaterials. Very recently Zhao and coworkers developed a surface-kinetic mediated multi-site nucleation strategy to precisely control the nucleation number of periodic mesoporous organosilicas(PMOs) on the surface of magnetic nano-spheres. The as-prepared mesoporous multipods(especially the Tribulus-like tetra-pods mesoporous nanoparticles) present high bacteria adhesion efficiency through multivalent interactions, which are expected to be the promising can-didates for future antibacterial applications. This work has been published online in the Nature Communications in Sep-tember 26, 2019.

  • Solid-liquid Phase Equilibria in the Process of Producing Lithium
           Hydroxide from Lithium Sulfate
    • Abstract: The solid-liquid phase equilibria in the process of producing lithium hydroxide from lithium sulfate at 283.15, 298.15 and 323.15 K were studied via the isothermal solubility equilibrium method, and the solid species, phase diagrams, solution densities and pH were determined. The results show that four solid species of Na2SO4·10H2O, Na2SO4·2.5H2O, Na2SO4 and LiOH·H2O occurred in the system, among them, Na2SO4·2.5H2O was a new solid species not reported in the open literature, which was determined via chemical analysis, Karl Fischer water titration, X-ray diffraction(XRD), thermogravimetic analysis(TG) and differential scanning calorimetry(DSC) testing. Based on the SLE data, one systemic process to produce LiOH·H2O from Li2SO4·H2O was proposed including two crystallization steps at lower and higher temperatures.

  • Effect of Preparation Method on the Structural Characteristics of NiO-ZrO
           2 Oxygen Carriers for Chemical-looping Combustion
    • Abstract: Chemical-looping combustion(CLC) offers an effective approach for power generation and CO2 capture. In this work, an NiO-ZrO2 oxygen carrier prepared by three methods was subjected to an optimal reaction temperature test, an optimal flow test and a cyclic redox reaction test to explore the most suitable reaction conditions. Through comparative analysis, it is noted that the coprecipitation method is not suitable for the preparation of this NiO-ZrO2 oxygen carrier, while the oxygen carrier prepared by the mechanical mixing method and solution combustion method obtained a higher CH4 conversion rate and CO2 selectivity. In addition, these two oxygen carriers also showed high stability during successive CLC testing. Therefore, both the mechanical mixing method and the solution combustion method can be used to prepare NiO-ZrO2 oxygen carriers.

  • Hydrogen Production by Chemical Looping Gasification of Corn Stalk Driven
           by a tert -Butanol Solution
    • Abstract: The purpose of this work is to convert organic wastewater into oxidants(H2O and CO2) to promote biomass gasification during the chemical looping process to achieve high-H2/CO-ratio syngas. A tert-butanol solution was selected as the model organic wastewater to generate enough H2O and CO2 to promote corn stalk chemical looping gasification(CLG). A series of CLG experiments was conducted at 850°C under various degrees of oxygen excess(Ω). An Ω of approximately 0.9 led to the highest hydrogen yield and fixed carbon conversion compared with the other cases. Chemometrics and thermodynamic analysis further validated the possibility of corn stalk CLG using a tert-butanol solution. The results show that CLG of biomass-organic wastewater can both treat organic waste and promote chemical looping processes.

  • Improved Electrochemical Kinetic Performances of La-Mg-Ni-based Hydrogen
           Storage Alloy Modified by Ni-Polypyrrole Complex Surface Treatment
    • Abstract: In order to improve the electrochemical kinetic performances of La-Mg-Ni-based alloy, complex surface modification of Ni with excellent catalytic activity and conducting polymer polypyrrole(PPy) was performed via electroless plating method. FESEM images revealed that the complex Ni-PPy treatment resulted in more micropores at the alloy surface, with Ni particles and cotton fiber-shape PPy microspheres attached. Both the larger surface area induced by the micropore and the higher catalytic activity and conductivity on account of the dispersed Ni particles/PPy microspheres promoted the electrode reaction, thereby increasing the discharge capacity of the modified alloy electrode. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy(EIS) and linear polarization results showed that the Ni-PPy treatment decreased the charge-transfer resistance and increased the exchange current density greatly, far more than the single-component Ni or PPy treatment. Consequently, a notable improvement in high rate dischargeability(HRD) was observed, and at a high discharge current density of 1800 mA/g, the HRD of the modified electrode increased by 10.4% compared with that of the bare electrode.

  • Fluorescent Turn-on Probe Based on Napthalimide Fused Triphenylamine Unit
           for Quickly Detecting Thiophenol in Aqueous Solution
    • Abstract: A novel molecular probe system(NapTpa-dnbs) was prepared based on the chromophore napthalimide fused triphenylamine unit. NapTpa-dnbs was tuned to absorb a large fraction of UV and near-infrared radiation. The turn-on fluorescent response of NapTpa-dnbs to thiophenol caused an increased fluorescent emission by a factor of 11.5 at 597 nm in a PBS buffer solution. The photoinduced electron transform(PET) process of the probe became less feasible with the addition of thiophenol than that of the free probe. NapTpa-dnbs demonstrated high selective and sensitive detection toward thiophenol with respect to other competitive amine acids. The detection limit was determined to be 2.03×10−7 mol/L thiophenol. The sensing process is rapid(3 min). NapTpa-dnbs can accurately detect the thiophenol with a qualified recovery in real water samples. NapTpa-dnbs on test strips can detect the thiophenol vapour in the atmosphere.

  • Opening of Band Gap of Graphene with High Electronic Mobility by Codoping
           BN Pairs
    • Abstract: Two-dimensional(2D) materials with a high density and low power consumption have become the most popular candidates for next-generation semiconductor electronic devices. As a prototype 2D material, graphene has attracted much attention owing to its stability and ultrahigh mobility. However, zero band gap of graphene leads to very low on-off ratios and thus limits its applications in electronic devices, such as transistors. Although some new 2D materials and doped graphene have nonzero band gaps, the electronic mobility is sacrificed. In this study, to open the band gap of graphene with high electronic mobility, the structure and property of BN-doped graphene were evaluated using first-principles calculations. The formation energies indicate that the six-membered BN rings doped graphene has the most favorable configuration. The band structures show that the band gaps can be opened by such type of doping. Also, the Dirac-cone-like band dispersion of graphene is mostly inhibited, ensuring high electronic mobility. Therefore, codoping BN into graphene might provide 2D materials with nonzero band gaps and high electronic mobility.

  • A Strategy to Find Novel Candidate DKAs Inhibitors Using Modified QSAR
           Model with Favorable Druggability Properties
    • Abstract: The study dealed with quantitative structure-activity relationship(QSAR) to explore the important features of diketo acid(DKA) derivatives for exerting potent HIV-1 integrase inhibitors activity. A three-step screening method was proposed to choose descriptors. Then, additional descriptors were used in the CoMFA and CoMSIA. Lastly, a modified CoMSIA m7 model, constructed by adding Csp2_03_F descriptor, showed better predictive ability. Validation parameters(Q2 and R2) for the models were 0.722 and 0.925, respectively. In addition, external validation for the models using a test group revealed R pred 2 =0.892. Contour maps analysis defined favored and disfavored regions of the compounds, and two new compounds with the descriptor structure were designed with better activities than Raltegravir(RAL), well drug-likeness and low toxicity. The research provides a base for further DKA development.

  • Influence of Nucleotide-biased Fluorescence Emissions of SYBR Green II on
           the Result Consistence of Rolling Circle Amplification
    • Abstract: The fluorescence dye SYBR Green II(SG II) has been frequently used in rolling circle amplification(RCA) based analyses of nucleic acids. However, a good amount of inconsistencies have been reported in regards the quality and reproducibility of RCA reactions. To properly examine this experimental issue, here we utilized a series of synthetic oligonucleotides and circular templates to investigate the impact of SG II in RCA reactions. The results indicate that SG II enables a strong fluorescence signal only when complexing with guanosine(G) residue. In RCA reactions, long single-stranded RCA products, enriched with G residues, result in higher fluorescence emission when compared with the addition of other nucleotide residues. These results suggest that the nucleotide composition of the reaction can affect the amplification results and, eventually, can lead to inconsistent fluorescence of the RCA products. This work indicates that particular attention should be given when circular templates are designed for the quantitative analysis of nucleic acids, to further allow the signal reproducibility of RCA-based experiments.

  • Novel Small Four-armed Molecules with Triphenylamine-bridged Structure for
           Organic Solar Cells Featuring High Open-circuit Voltage
    • Abstract: In view of few attention on star-shaped molecules containing triphenylamine(TPA) unit as π-linker, a series of small four-armed molecules, consisting of octyloxy-substituted 2,1,3-benzothiadiazole(DOBT) or 4-octyl-2-thienyl functionalized DOBT as the core, TPA as π-bridge and 4-methylphenyl or 4-methoxyphenyl groups as terminal units, was designed and synthesized. The effects of πbridges and substitute groups on molecular photoe-lectric performance and photovoltaic performance were fully explored. With the help of the additional thiophene-linkers incorporation, 3-octylthienyl substituted molecule with end-capping 4-methylphenyl(T-BTTPAM) and 3-octylthienyl substituted molecule with end-capping 4-methoxyphenyl(T-BTTPAOM) showed stronger and broader absorption, as well as higher charge mobilities compared to the molecules without thiophene-linkers(BTTPAM and BTTPAOM). Additionally, changing substitute groups from methyl to methoxy helped BTTPAOM and T-BTTPAOM achieve better absorption properties than BTTPAM and T-BTTPAM, respectively. When paired with PC61BM as the electron acceptor to fabricate solution-processed photovoltaic devices, the four materials gave high open-circuit voltage(Voc) values over 0.90 V. These results demonstrate that our materials are promising candidates as donor materials for organic solar cells(OSCs), and further device optimization is in progress in our laboratory.

It was shown that the operating temperature window was significantly widened. Among all the catalysts prepared, 1%Ag2O/TiO2 showed the highest catalytic activity for NOx removal due to the utilization of near ultraviolet light. The conversion of NOx to N2 over the in-plasma 1%Ag2O/TiO2 photocatalyst at 60 and 300 °C could achieve 31.8% and 53.0%, respectively. The combination mode of plasma and catalyst affected NOx removal efficiency greatly, the in-plasma catalysis outperformed the post-plasma catalytic mode remarkably, signifying the contribution of photocatalytic processes on the catalysts. Meanwhile, the characterizations of the catalyst demonstrated that the morphology and structure of the Ag2O/TiO2 catalyst were unchanged throughout the non-thermal plasma and photocatalytic processes, implying the superior stability of the catalyst.

  • Enantioseparation by HPLC Using an Inorganic Chiral Mesoporous Silica with
           Highly-ordered Structure
    • Abstract: Highly-ordered inorganic chiral mesoporous silica(HOCMS) has attracted substantial interest in recent decades. High performance liquid chromatography(HPLC) is the most important approach for the separation of enantiomers and herein reported an HPLC chiral stationary phase composed of HOCMS. The column was fabricated by conventional high pressure slurry packing. Eighteen racemates, including alcohols, ketones, amines, aldehydes and organic acids, were resolved on the column. Good chiral separations of hydrobenzoin, metoprolol, propranolol hydrochloride, 4-methyl-2-pentanol, omeprazole, 2,2′-furoin and ketoprofen were obtained. The relative standard devi-ations for five replicate separations of racemates were 0.1%–0.16% for retention time and 1.73%–2.64% for peak areas. The results suggest that HOCMS is a promising candidate for preparation of chiral stationary phases for HPLC.

  • Crystal Structures and Electrochemical Properties of R 1.5 Ca 1.5 MgNi 14
           (R=Nd, Gd and Er) Hydrogen Storage Alloys
    • Abstract: Ca3MgNi14, Nd1.5Ca1.5MgNi14, Gd1.5Ca1.5MgNi14 and Er1.5Ca1.5MgNi14 alloys were prepared by high frequency induction melting and sintering. Characterization and analysis were performed by X-ray diffraction/Rietveld full-spectrum fitting, gaseous P-C-T hydrogen storage test and electrochemical properties tests. It can be found that all alloys consist of Gd2Co7-type 3R phase and Ce2Ni7-type 2H phase. Although the hydrogen storage capacities of Nd1.5Ca1.5MgNi14, Gd1.5Ca1.5MgNi14 and Er1.5Ca1.5MgNi14 decrease to some extent compared to that of Ca3MgNi14, their equilibrium pressures for absorption and desorption increase markedly. Moreover, R1.5Ca1.5MgNi14 alloys have better cycling stabilities and high-rate discharge(HRD) properties as compared to Ca3MgNi14. The hydrogen diffusion in alloy electrodes is the main factor to influence the HRD performance.

  • K 3 PO 4 -Promoted Cyclopropanation of Electron-deficient Alkenes with
           2-Bromo-1,3-Propanedione Compounds
    • Abstract: An easy and efficient method for the synthesis of multisubstituted cyclopropane derivatives from electron-deficicent alkenes with 2-bromo-1,3-propanedione compounds was described. For this method, ethyl α-cyanocinnamate derivatives 1 and β,β-dicyanostyrene derivatives 4 can all smoothly reacted with 2-bromo-1,3-propanedione compounds 2 to afford the corresponding multisubstituted cyclopropane derivatives 3 and 5 in good to excellent yields(up to 100%) promoted by anhydrous K3PO4 in DMF at room temperature, respectively. A possible mechanism of this reaction was proposed. Structures of all the products were confirmed by 1H NMR, 13C NMR and HRMS.

  • Geminiarene: A New Macrocyclic Arene with Dual/Gemini Molecular
           Conformation and Guest Selectivity in the Solid State
    • Abstract: Prof. YANG Yingwei and his coworker from Jilin University reported an entirely new kind of macrocyclic arene, namely geminiarene, featuring two different but interconvertible molecular configurations. Taking advantage of the dual/gemini conformational feature and the unique host-guest property of geminiarene, they developed unitary and dual guest selective adsorption/separation systems, in particular toward chlorobenzene and chlorocyclohexane.
