  • Analysis and identification of chemical constituents of fenugreek by
           UPLC-IT-MS n and UPLC-Q-TOF-MS
    • Authors: Jiaqi Wang; Wenyue Jiang; Zhongying Liu; Junhua Wang; Tianyue Fu; Yongsheng Wang
      Pages: 721 - 730
      Abstract: Fenugreek, a traditional Chinese medical plant, has been widely used as food ingredients because of its outstanding medicinal qualities. The hypoglycemic activity of fenugreek is one of its important pharmacological properties. Both of saponin and flavonoid components have the hypoglycemic activity and their contents in fenugreek are 4%—8% and 1%—2%, respectively. This paper focused on these two types of components to carry out purification research and chemical analysis. The heating reflux extraction method and macroporous resin purification method were designed to prepare the saponins and the flavonoids components from defatted fenugreek seeds. Petroleum ether ultrasonic skim and 70% ethanol refluxing were used for the extraction of saponins and flavonoid from fenugreek. The column of DM130 macroporous resin and D101 macroporous resin were respectively used to prepare fenugreek saponin and flavonoid components, and the total contents of them were 78.56% and 62.28%, respectively. The saponin and flavonoids were subsequently analyzed by an ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry(UPLC-Q-TOF-MS) along with an ultra-performance liquid chromatography and ion-trap tandem mass spectrometry(UPLC-IT-MS n ). As a result, 57 saponins and 19 flavonoid compounds were characterized. The obtained results will provide a theory basis for further research on fenugreek, as well as research and development of hypoglycemic new drugs.

  • Double-lipase catalyzed synthesis of kojic dipalmitate in organic solvents
    • Authors: Zhiyuan Wang; Wen Luo; Junying Fu; Zhibing Li; Zhongming Wang; Pengmei Lü
      Abstract: Kojic dipalmitate(KDP) was synthesized by the way of esterification of palmitic and kojic acids in organic solvent, with double-lipase as the biocatalyst. Four commercially available lipases(Amano PS, Novozym 435, Lipozyme TL IM and Lipozyme RM IM) were used to group six double-lipase combinations. These combinations were studied and Amano PS-Novozym 435 was found to have the best efficiency and was selected for optimizing the reaction conditions. The optimal reaction conditions were that the mass ratio of Amano PS to Novozyme 435 1:1.5, stirring speed of 500 r/min, substrates molar ratio of 1:2, 50 °C, 5%(mass fraction) catalyst dosage of kojic acid quantity and using acetone as co-solvent. Under these conditions, the diesterification of C5 and C7 hydroxyl groups of kojic acid molecule could be well catalyzed by double-lipase and realize a high KDP yield of 85%.

  • Design, synthesis and insecticidal evaluation of novel N
           -pyridylpyrazolecarboxamide derivatives containing isoxazole, isoxazoline
           and 1, 3, 4-thiadiazole rings
    • Authors: Xuewen Hua; Chen Liu; Sha Zhou; Minggui Chen; Lixia Xiong; Yongqiang Li; Zhengming Li
      Abstract: With the introduction of various heterocyclic rings at the benzene part of anthranilic diamides, a series of N-pyridylpyrazolecarboxamide derivatives containing isoxazole, isoxazoline and 1,3,4-thiadiazole rings was designed, synthesized and evaluated for their insecticidal activities. The structures of the obtained novel target compounds were confirmed by means of 1H NMR, 13C NMR and HRMS. The bioassay results indicated that most of the target com-pounds displayed moderate or good insecticidal activities against oriental armyworm and diamondback moth at the adopted concentrations compared with chlorantraniliprole, especially compounds Ii and Il, of which the LC50 and LC95 values against oriental armyworm were further measured. The structure-activity relationship demonstrated that the introduction of chlorine in benzene ring, bromomethyl and acetoxyl substituents in 4,5-dihydroisoxazole part was more advantageous to improve the corresponding insecticidal activities than the introduction of other substituents and heterocycles.

  • Tuning shell thickness of MnO/C core-shell nanowires for optimum
           performance of lithium-ion batteries
    • Authors: Dan Zhang; Guangshe Li; Jianming Fan; Baoyun Li; Liping Li
      Abstract: MnO/C core-shell nanowires with varying carbon shell thickness were synthesized via calcining resorci-nol-formaldehyde resin(RF) with different amounts of hydrothermally synthesized MnO2 nanowires. The relationship between the carbon shell thickness and the anode performance of the MnO/C materials was discussed. With a suitable carbon shell thickness(6.8 nm), the MnO/C core-shell nanowires exhibit better cycling and rate performance than those with a smaller or larger thickness. The TEM results show that after 50 cycles, the core-shell structure with this thickness can be retained, which leads to superior performance. This contribution provides a significant guiding model for optimizing the electrochemical performance of MnO/C core-shell materials by controlling the thickness of carbon shells.

  • Preparation of β -cyclodextrin/Fe 3 O 4 /polyvinylpyrrolidone composite
           magnetic microspheres for the adsorption of methyl orange
    • Authors: Qingbo Si; Qian Wen; Qingbiao Yang; Yan Song; Yaoxian Li
      Abstract: Magnetic microspherical β-cyclodextrin(CD)/Fe3O4@polyvinylpyrrolidone(PVP) particles, in which embedded Fe3O4 particles were coated by β-CD/glutaraldehyde crosslinked PVP, were synthesized via electrostatic spray and thermal crosslinking technologies. The magnetic microspheres were characterized by infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy(SEM) and magnetic measurements, and the adsorption performance of the β-CD/Fe3O4@PVP composite nanoparticles for methyl orange was studied. The results show that the β-CD/Fe3O4@PVP microspheres could be quickly separated from the adsorption system under an external magnetic field within 30 s and that the adsorption capacity of the microspheres for methyl orange reaches greater than 90%, with a maximum adsorption quantity of 47.62 mg/g.

  • Physicochemical properties of Bi-containing ionic liquid analogs based on
           choline chloride
    • Authors: Luxia Bu; Daying Liu; Zhen Wei; Zhanlin Ma
      Abstract: The preparation and characterization of homogeneous and colorless ionic liquid analogs(ILAs) containing choline chloride(ChCl), malonic acid and bismuth chloride were investigated. The structure of the above mixture was preliminarily analyzed, and then the physicochemical properties including viscosity, conductivity and density were investigated as functions of temperature and composition. Additionally, the thermal stability of the ILAs and the electrochemical behavior of Bi3+ ions in the medium were studied. Structure analysis reveals that the synthesis of deep eutectic solvents(DESs) is closely related to the formation of hydrogen bonds between malonic acid and ChCl, with their viscosity, conductivity and density being greatly dependent on the temperature and composition. Thermo-gravimetric analysis demonstrates that the ILAs are very stable between room temperature and 398.15 K. And the electrochemical experiments indicate that the bismuth films can be successfully deposited from this ILAs and the deposition mechanism of bismuth is a rather irreversible process. The surface morphology of bismuth films deposited on Cu substrates was very compact and smooth. Thus, ChCl-malonic acid DESs were shown to be a good alternative to aqueous solvents for various deposition-related applications.

  • PVA/PEG hybrid hydrogels prepared by freeze-thawing and high energy
           electron beam irradiation
    • Authors: Chunming Zhao; Xueting Lu; Qianqian Hu; Shuai Liu; Shuang Guan
      Abstract: In this paper, poly(vinyl alcohol)(PVA) and PVA/poly(ethylene glycol)(PEG) hybrid hydrogels were syn-thesized by freeze-thawing or freeze-thawing followed by high energy electron beam irradiation. The influence of PEG molecular weight, mass ratios of PVA to PEG, thawing temperature and number of freeze-thawing(FT) cycles on the mechanical strength of PVA/PEG hydrogel was investigated. Also, the thermal behaviors were examined by dif-ferential scanning calorimetry(DSC) and the microstructures were observed with scanning electron microscopy(SEM). The results suggest that the addition of PEG improves the mechanical strength of PVA hydrogel and the irradiation reduces both the strength of PVA/PEG hydrogel slightly and the degree of crystallinity. The improved properties suggest that PVA/PEG hydrogel can be a good candidate for the application in the biomedical.

  • Moisture absorption and mechanical properties of chemically modified
           linen/polypropylene composites
    • Authors: Qiuxue Hu; Li Li; Wenling Yan; Qi Zhao; Niaona Zhang; Yumei Zhang; Jinbiao Dong; Baijun Liu; Wei Hu
      Abstract: To decrease the moisture absorption and improve the mechanical properties of linen/polypropylene(PP) composites, linen was modified with silane N-[3-(trimethoxysilyl) propyl]ethylenediamine(AAPTS), surfactant tri-methyloctadecylammonium bromide(STAB), and both AAPTS and STAB, respectively. Fourier transform infra-red(FTIR) spectra showed that the linen was successfully modified and alkyl chains were attached through different treatments. The linen and PP were compounded by melt compressing. The moisture absorption of linen was decreased after STAB and AAPTS-STAB modifications. The moisture absorption, mechanical property and thermal property of the composites were also characterized. The results show that the moisture absorption of the AAPTS-modified li-nen(F1) reinforced PP(PPF1) is 8.09%, which is higher than that of the unmodified linen reinforced PP(PPF)(7.89%). The moisture absorption of the STAB-AAPTS-modified linen(F3) reinforced PP(PPF3) is 6.58%. The tensile strengths of PPF1 and PPF3 are 33.7 and 35.8 MPa, which are improved by 22.5% and 30% compared with that of PPF(27.5 MPa), respectively. Nevertheless, the moisture absorption of the STAB-modified linen(F2) reinforced PP(PPF2) is decreased by 22.4%, and the tensile strength is improved by 30% compared with those of PPF. Scanning electron microscopy(SEM) analysis of the fractured surface confirms the good interfacial adhesion of PPF2 compared with those of other composites. Furthermore, the 5% mass loss temperatures of the composites are all higher than 290 °C. Thus, linen modified with STAB is a promising reinforcement for biocomposites.

  • Preparation of zinc-nickel-cobalt ternary oxide nanosheets as electrodes
           in supercapacitors
    • Authors: Xue Shi; Guowei Zhou
      Abstract: Novel zinc-nickel-cobalt ternary oxide nanosheets were successfully synthesized via an easy solvothermal method followed by calcination and were tailored to have different numbers of wrinkles by controlling the volume ratio of the components in the mixed solvent. Nanosheets with more wrinkles yielded a large specific surface area(111.61 m2/g), which improved their electrochemical properties. The resulting products were characterized using a three-electrode system in 6 mol/L KOH electrolyte solution. With unique structures, the nanosheets with more wrinkles displayed a good capacitive behavior and an excellent specific capacitance retention of 97.18% after 2000 continuous charge-discharge cycles. Considering their high electrochemical performance and simple fabrication, we proposed that these unique zinc-nickel-cobalt oxide nanosheets are promising supercapacitor electrodes for energy storage applications.

  • Structure and enhanced antifungal activity of a divalent cobalt(II)
           complex with hexaconazole
    • Authors: Jinhua Zhou; Jingjing Li; Jie Li; Guoyu Ren; Yinghui Ren; Haixia Ma
      Abstract: A new CoII complex, [CoL4Cl2]·2CH3CH2OH(L=hexaconazole), was synthesized and characterized by means of elemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The crystal structural analysis shows that the centrosymmetric Co2+ is coordinated by four hexaconazole ligands and two Cl‒ to form a distorted octahedral geometry. The complex forms 1D chains through the intermolecular hydrogen bonds interaction of O―H···O and O―H···Cl. Furthermore, the antifungal activities of the complex against Grape anthracnose(I), Bo-tryosphaeria berengriana(II), Botryosphaeria ribis(III) and Wheat gibberellic(IV) have been investigated and com-pared with those of the corresponding ligand. The results show that the complex has better antifungal activity than the ligand, which indicates that the coordination of the ligand and the metal enhances the antimicrobialactivity.

  • Preparation of molecularly imprinted sericin/poly(vinyl alcohol)
           electrospun fibers for selective removal of methylene blue
    • Authors: Rui Zhao; Xiang Li; Bolun Sun; Yumei Li; Yanzi Li; Ce Wang
      Abstract: Sericin(SS), as an abundant and renewable resource in nature, has been proven to be a good adsorbent for metal ions or organic dyes removal. In this study, glutaraldehyde vapor cross-linked sericin-based electrospun fiber adsorbent was developed for the removal of methylene blue(MB) from wastewater. To overcome the problem of decreasing adsorption capacity by excessive functional group cross-linking, MB-imprinted sericin/poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) electrospun fiber adsorbent was prepared. Biocompatible PVA was added to the electrospinning solution to improve the spinnability and mechanical property. Scanning electron microscopy(SEM), Fourier transforms infrared spectroscopy(FTIR), and so forth were used to confirm their structures and composition. The adsorption performance toward the template molecule MB, including pH effect, adsorption isotherm, adsorption kinetics, adsorption selectivity, and reusability, was investigated. By comparison with non-imprinted sericin/PVA electrospun fibers, MB-imprinted sericin/PVA electrospun fiber adsorbent showed an enhanced and selective adsorption capacity toward MB with a good regeneration and recycling ability. The adsorption test suggests that the resulting MB-imprinted sericin/PVA electrospun fibers are promising adsorbents for MB removal from aqueous system.

  • Ultrasonic-assisted mesoporous silica nanoparticle-mediated exogenous gene
           stable expression in tobacco
    • Authors: Zhongni Wang; Huijing Liu; Luhua Li; Quanliang Li; Xiuran Wang; Yuan Jiang; Yuqin Fu; Changli Lü
      Abstract: Although nanotechnology is considered to be one of the most important technologies to promote social and economic development in the twenty-first century, its application in agriculture is relatively few compared with those in other fields. In this article, plasmid carrying GUS gene was successfully delivered into tobacco(Nicotiana tabacum) by mesoporous silica nanoparticles(MSNs) modified with positively charged poly-L-lysine(PLL) with the assist of ultrasonic method. Stable transformation was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction(PCR) detection and GUS histochemical staining. Meanwhile, we also studied the factors that could enhance the genetic transformation efficiency. The result suggests that the callus receptor and a suitable DNA/MSNs ratio contribute a lot to the transformation efficiency. In a word, our research provides an efficient and cost-effective method for gene delivery to plant.

  • Circular cationic compounds B 3 Rg n + of triangular ion B 3 + trapping
           rare gases
    • Authors: Ruiwen Zhang; Anyong Li; Zhuozhe Li
      Abstract: The circular cationic compounds B3Rg n +(n=1—3, Rg=He—Rn) formed by the electron-deficient aromatic ion B3 + trapping rare gases were studied theoretically. The formed B—Rg bond has large bonding energy in the range of 60—209 kJ/mol, its length is close to the sum of covalent radii of B and Rg, for Ar—Rn. The analyses based on the natural bond orbitals and electron density topology show that the B—Rg bonds for Ar—Rn have strong covalent character. The geometric structures, binding energy, bond nature and thermodynamic stability of the boron-rare gas compounds show that these species for Ar—Rn may be experimentally available. Several different theoretical studies have demonstrated that these triangular cations are aromatic.

  • Effects of ZnO nanoparticles on rat glioma C6 cells
    • Authors: Jing Su; Mingyue Yu; Zhen Lin; Hang Zhao; Haiyan Liu
      Abstract: Zinc oxide nanoparticles(ZnO NPs) are among the most commonly utilized nanomaterials. They are used in a wide range of applications, including medicine, sunscreens, cosmetics, paints, catalysis, electronics, as well as biosensors, and hence, it is crucial to illustrate their biological effects and risks. In the present study, the effects and mechanism of ZnO NPs(≤5 nm) were investigated in rat glioma C6 cells in vitro. The results of transmission elec-tron microscopy(TEM) and X-ray diffraction(XRD) show that ZnO NPs are pure with a uniform diameter of ca. 5 nm. 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide(MTT) assays on C6 cells show that ZnO NPs, at dif-ferent concentrations(0―5 μg/mL), can induce significant cytotoxicity in C6 cells in a dose-dependent manner. An increased level of reactive oxygen species(ROS), a decreased level of glutathione(GSH), and an elevated level of glutathione disulfide(GSSG) and the toxicity mechanism are primarily attributed to the induced cellular oxidative stress. 4′,6-Diamidino-2-phenylindole(DAPI) staining was used to observe the apoptosis. The results show that C6 cells treated with the ZnO NPs at various concentrations(0, 1.25, 2.5 and 5 μg/mL) can induce apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner. These results suggest that ZnO NPs are the killers of the rat glioma C6 cells, and oxidative stress is the underlying mechanism of this process.

  • Rational design of Ag nanocubes-reduced graphene oxide nanocomposites for
           high-performance non-enzymatic H 2 O 2 sensing
    • Authors: Ye Ji; Tianyi Han; Yong Zhang; Ziying Wang; Tong Zhang; Jiyan Leng
      Abstract: Ag nanocubes-reduced graphene oxide(AgNCs-rGO) nanocomposite was successfully prepared by an in situ synthesis method, in which AgNCs were loaded onto the surface of rGO during the formation of AgNCs in an ethylene glycol solution. Characterization by X-ray diffraction, UV-Vis spectroscopy, and scanning electron micro-scopy indicated the successful preparation of the AgNCs-rGO nanocomposite. Most importantly, the AgNCs-rGO nanocomposite exhibited excellent electrocatalytic activity for the reduction of H2O2, leading to a high-performance non-enzymatic H2O2 sensor with a linear detection range and detection limit of approximately 0.1 mmol/L to 70 mmol/L(r=0.999) and 0.58 μmol/L, respectively. Our present work provides a new and highly efficient method for fabricating high-performance electrochemical sensors.

  • Thermodynamic Description of the MCl 2 -ThCl 4 (M: Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba) Systems
    • Authors: Mengya Xie; Xiang Li; Yaping Ding; Guoxin Zhang
      Abstract: The phase equilibria for the MCl2-ThCl4(M: Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba) binary systems were critically evaluated and optimized based upon the CALPHAD approach. The substitutional solution model(SSM) was used to describe the liquid phase. All the intermediate compounds were treated as stoichiometric compounds of which Gibbs energies comply with the Neumann-Kopp rule. Thermodynamic model parameters optimization for respective phases was conducted by the least squares minimization procedure with required input data available from experimental mea-surements. Satisfactory agreements between all calculated results and experimental data were achieved which demonstrates that thermodynamic databases for the MCl2-ThCl4(M: Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba) binary systems were ultimately derived in the present work allowing safe extrapolation into multi-component system for guiding relative industrial applications.

  • Two new baccharane glycosides from seeds of Impatientis balsamina L. with
           In vitro growth inhibitory activity in human cancer A375 cells
    • Authors: Qian Wu; Yongri Jin; Hua Yao; Ying Liu; Peng Li; Xuwen Li
      Abstract: Two new baccharane-type glycosides (1 and 2), together with seven known baccharane-type glycosides (3―9) hosenkoside A, hosenkoside B, hosenkoside C, hosenkoside F, hosenkoside M, hosenkoside K and hosenko-side G were isolated from the dried seeds of Impatientis balsamina L. The new baccharane-type glycosides were identified as honsenkol A-3-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-26-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1) and (3S,4R,17R,20S)-17-hydroxy-3-O-β-D-xylopyranose(12)-β-D-glucopyranosyl-26-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-21,24-epoxybaccharane(2), respectively, by spectroscopic methods, in-cluding NMR(1D and 2D), IR and HR-ESI-MS. Compounds 1 and 2 were evaluated for in vitro inhibitory activity against the cell lines. Compound 2 with a new baccharane skeleton had anti-hepatic fibrosis activity against A375 cells in bioassay results, which means the new compounds have potential value in antitumor applications.

  • Development of a novel kilowatt microwave plasma torch source for atomic
           emission spectrometry
    • Authors: Dan Zhu; Wei Jin; Bingwen Yu; Yangwei Ying; Haixiang Yu; Jin Shan; Yuwei Yan; Chen Xu; Baolai Wang; Qinhan Jin
      Abstract: Traditional low power-microwave plasma torch(MPT) excitation source of atomic emission spectrometry was shown to be good for the introduction of dry aerosols, but poor for wet sample aerosols. In this work, some significant modifications have been made to traditional MPT. A new MPT excitation source working at kilowatt microwave power has been developed. The kilowatt MPT source can sustain stable plasmas with double or even more filaments, presenting a “bell” form, where the region around the converging point is the optimum region for analysis. The tolerance to aqueous aerosol of the torch is enhanced significantly compared to the traditional one. Therefore, the desolvation system that the low power MPT source has to be relied on can be gotten rid of. A set of favorable detection results have been obtained with direct wet sample aerosol introduction. The kilowatt MPT source is expected to become a practical excitation source for atomic emission spectrometry that will be widely used.

           ketene dithioactals
    • Authors: Hui Zhao; Quanping Diao; Haifeng Yu; Tiechun Li; Peiqiu Liao; Dongyan Hou
      Abstract: A FeCl3 6H2O-catalyzed synthesis of β-ketothioesters from the hydrolysis reaction of chain α-oxoketene dithioacetals was carried out. Subsequently, we explored the FeCl3 6H2O-catalyzed Friedel-Crafts alkylation of the synthesized β-ketothioesters with alcohols in CH3CN at 25 °C, affording the desired α-alkylated β-ketothioesters in excellent yields. Wide scope of the substrates, use of inexpensive reagents, high yields under mild reaction conditions are notable features of these reactions.
