  • Preparation of Poly(ε-caprolactone)/Poly(ester amide) Electrospun
           Membranes for Vascular Repair

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With adjustable amphiphilicity and anionic/cationic charge, biodegradability and biocompatibility, amino acid-based poly(ester amide)s(PEAs) have drawn attention in the research of tissue engineered vascular grafts. In this work, L-phenylalanine-based PEAs with or without L-lysine were synthesized through polycondensation, and ultrafine fibrous grafts consisted of PEAs and poly(ε-caprolactone)(PCL) in given mass ratios were further prepared via blend electrospinning. Surface characterizations by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirmed the chemical structure, and the wettability indicated that the prepared PCL/PEAs electrospun membranes exhibited less hydrophobic than PCL. Tensile results showed that the PCL/PEAs membranes possessed suitable mechanical properties, which could meet the requirements of artificial blood vessels. Cell culture and hemolytic tests exhibited that the PCL/PEAs electrospun membranes are biocompatible. In general, the electrospun grafts of PCL/PEAs could be applied for vascular repair.

  • Modification of PAE-degrading Esterase(CarEW) for Higher Degradation
           Efficiency Through Integrated Homology Modeling, Molecular Docking, and
           Molecular Dynamics Simulation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Six phthalate acid esters(PAEs) priority pollutants[dimethyl phthalate(DMP), diethyl phthalate(DEP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP or DNBP), di-n-octyl phthalate(DNOP), di 2-ethyl hexyl phthalate(DEHP), and butyl benzyl phthalate(BBP)] were opted as the research object. PAE-degrading esterase CarEW(PDB ID: 1C7I) isolated from Bacillus subtilis acting as a template and an iterative saturation mutation strategy was adopted to modify key amino acids to attain efficient PAE-degrading esterase substitutes with a reasonable structure constructed by homology modeling method. Present study designed a total of 285 unit-site and multi-site substitutions of PAE-degrading esterase using the homology modeling method. Among them, 207 PAE-degrading esterase substitutions, which contained the 6-site PAE-degrading esterase substitute 1C7I-6-9 with 84.21% enhancement intensity of degradation ability revealed better degradability to all the 6 PAEs after modification. Moreover, molecular dynamics simulation based on the Taguchi method reported the optimal external application environment for PAE-degrading esterase substitutes as follows: pH=6, T=35 °C, the rhamnolipid concentration was 50 mg/L, the molar ratio of nitrogen to phosphorus(N:P) was 10:1, the concentration of H2O2 was 50 mg/L, and the voltage gradient was 1.5 V/cm. The degradation ability of PAE-degrading esterase substitutes was found to be elevated by 13.04% as compared to that of the blank control under the optimal condition. Moreover, 11 highly efficient PAE-degrading esterase substitutes with thermal stability were designed.

  • Eliminating Hysteresis of Perovskite Solar Cells with Hollow TiO2
           Mesoporous Electron Transport Layer

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Current density-voltage(J-V) hysteresis issue caused by unbalanced charge transport has greatly limited the improvement of power conversion efficiency(PCE) of halide perovskite solar cells(PSCs). Herein, hollow TiO2 mesoporous electron transport layer(ETL) was used to fabricate PSCs. The structure-dependent charge collection as well as its effect on PCE and hysteresis impactor(HI) of PSC were investigated. The results demonstrate that TiO2 hollow spheres in a size of around 50 nm (HS-50) can form a high quality perovskite/ETL interface with a less trap density. Moreover, the hollow TiO2 with the thin shell can help promote the extraction of electrons from perovskite layer to ETL, so as to reduce the charge accumulation and recombination at the perovskite/ETL interface and alleviate the hysteresis behavior. As a result, PSCs with HS-50 TiO2 delivered a champion PCE of 16.81% with a small HI of 0.0297, indicating a better performance than the commercial P25(PCE of 15.87%, HI of 0.2571).

           Interpenetrated Cd(II) Coordination Polymer for Sensitive Detecting
           Different Ions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Athree-fold interpenetrated cadmium coordination polymer [Cd3(BTC)2(H2O)9]·2H2O(CP 1)(H3BTC=1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid) was selected and synthesized to investigate its photoelectric properties. CP 1 showed excellent sensitivity for Cr2O72− and Fe3+, low limit of detection(LOD: 0.39 µmol/L for Cr2O72− and 1.72 µmol/L for Fe3+) and stability as electrochemical sensor. More importantly, fluorescence sensing studies indicated that CP 1 exhibits sensing activity for Fe3+, Fe2+, and MnO4− with good cyclic stability and selectivity. Low LOD and high-sensitivity capability of CP 1 make it a potential multifunctional photoelectric sensor.

  • Quantitative Analysis of Methanol in Methanol Gasoline by Calibration
           Transfer Strategy Based on Kernel Domain Adaptive Partial Least
           Squares(kda-PLS)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The application of near-infrared(NIR) spectroscopy combined with multivariate calibration methods can achieve the rapid analysis of methanol gasoline. However, instrumental or environmental differences found for spectra make it impossible to continuously apply the previously developed calibration model. Therefore, the calibration transfer technique would be required to solve the time-consuming and laborious problem of reestablishing a new model. In this work, a calibration transfer method named kernel domain adaptive partial least squares(kda-PLS) was applied to the calibration transfer from the primary instrument to the secondary ones. Firstly, wavelet transform(WT) and variable importance in projection(VIP) were employed to enhance the predictive performance of the kda-PLS transfer model. Then, the results found for the calibration transfer by piecewise direct standardization(PDS) and domain adaptive partial least squares(da-PLS) were compared to verify the calibration transfer(CT) effect of kda-PLS. The results point that the kda-PLS method can transfer the PLS model developed on the primary instrument to the secondary ones, and achieve results comparable to the those of reestablishing a new PLS model on the secondary instrument, with R P 2 =0.9979(R P 2 : coefficients of determination of the prediction set), RMSEP=0.0040 (RMSEP: root mean square error of the prediction set), and MREP=3.03%(MREP: mean relative error of the prediction set). Therefore, kda-PLS will provide a new method for quantitative analysis of methanol content in methanol gasoline.

  • Covalent Organic Frameworks(COFs) for Sequestration of 99TCO4−

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Covalent organic frameworks(COFs), as a class of crystalline porous materials with periodic lattices and porous structures, have received extensive attention in the fields of gas storage and separation, energy storage, catalysis and optoelectronics and so on. However, COFs are still in their infancy in the field of nuclear waste treatment, especially for sequestration of long-live problematic radionuclides, such as 99Tc. Battle of decontamination of pertechnetate(TcO4−), a main existence of 99Tc under aerobic environments, is far from finished. In this review, recent progresses of COFs and some relative materials in the sequestration of pertechnetate, and perspective on surmounting the unmet issues are elucidated.

  • Design and Preparation of Graphene/Fe2O3 Nanocomposite as Negative
           Material for Supercapacitor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The development of high specific capacitance electrode materials with high efficiency, scalability and economic feasibility is significant for the application of supercapacitors, however, the synthesis of electrode material still faces huge challenges. Herein, graphene(G)/Fe2O3 nanocomposite was prepared via a simple hydrothermal method connected with subsequent thermal reduction process. Scanning electron microscopy(SEM) and transmission electron microscopy(TEM) results showed rod-like Fe2O3 nanoparticles were prepared and well-dispersed on graphene layers, providing a rich active site and effectively buffering the aggregation of Fe2O3 nanoparticles in the process of electrochemical reaction. The specific capacitance of the obtained G/Fe2O3 nanocomposite as negative electrode for supercapacitor was 378.7 F/g at the current density of 1.5 A/g, and the specific capacitance retention was 88.76% after 3000 cycles. Furthermore, the asymmetric supercapacitor(ASC) was fabricated with G/Fe2O3 nanocomposite as negative electrode, graphene as positive electrode, which achieved a high energy density of 64.09 W·h/kg at a power density of 800.01 W/kg, maintained 30.07 W·h/kg at a power density of 8004.89 W/kg, and retained its initial capacitance by 78.04% after 3000 cycles. The excellent result offered a promising way for the G/Fe2O3 nanocomposite to be applied in high energy density storage systems.

  • Selective Oxidation of Methane into Methanol Under Mild Conditions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Selective oxidation of methane to methanol under mild conditions has been considered as a dream reaction but suffers from poor efficiency due to the strong C-H bond of methane and easy overoxidation of the methanol product. For overcoming these problems, a series of strategies has been developed for improving methanol productivity with oxidants of hydrogen peroxide and even a mixture of oxygen and hydrogen at mild temperatures. Significant achievements in these strategies using effective catalysts, such as supported metal nanoparticles, colloidal metal nanoparticles, and metal@zeolites are briefly concluded. Moreover, the current challenges, future perspectives for preparing active, selective, and stable catalysts, have been discussed. The zeolite fixed metal nanoparticle structure has been found to boost the reaction by benefiting the formation and enrichment of peroxide intermediates, which might guide the development of more efficient catalysts.

           Sieves

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Aluminophosphate(AlPO) and silicoaluminophosphate(SAPO) molecular sieves are an important class of open-framework crystalline materials with wide applications thanks to their molecular-scale selectivity, moderate/strong acidity and excellent (hydro)thermal stability. In recent decades, the manufacturing of new microporous solids with ordered structures has been widely investigated and many effective methods have been developed, which enriches the material types and broadens their applications beyond the traditional use as catalysts and adsorbents. However, the development on the synthesis of AlPO/SAPO molecular sieves is still insufficient and lags behind the needs of applications. Herein, we summarize the work on the seed-assisted synthesis of AlPO/SAPO molecular sieves compared with the zeolite synthetic system, aiming to prompt the synthesis and application of AlPO/SAPO molecular sieves.

  • Special Issue of Covalent Organic Frameworks(COFs): Dimeric
           Calix[4]resorcinarene-based Porous Organic Cages for CO2/CH4 Separation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Investigating gas separation by emerging porous organic cage(POC) solids is still on its initial stage. In this work, two novel [2+4] organic cages with distinguished structures have been prepared based on the Schiff-based condensation reaction between tetraformyl-functionalized calix[4]resorcinarene building blocks and xylylenediamine(XDA) isomers. Specifically, the use of para-position XDA affords lantern-shaped cage(CPOC-105) with a medium cavity of ca. 0.526 nm3, while the mefo-position produces peanut-shaped structure(CPOC-106) with two small cavities of ca. 0.181 nm3. Both CPOC-105 and CPOC-106 exhibit high selectivity capture of CO2 over CH4 with calculated selectivity coefficients of 4.5 and 3.1, respectively, under ambient conditions, and are capable of separating CO2/CH4 mixtures by fixed-bed column breakthrough experiments.

           Superior Iodine Capture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The effective capture of radioiodine species during nuclear fuel reprocessing and nuclear accidents is of primary importance but remains challenging for the sustainable development of nuclear energy. Herein, we report two newly designed two-dimensional(2D) and three-dimensional(3D) covalent organic frameworks by introducing tetrathiafulvalene functional groups into the building units for the simultaneous physisorption and chemisorption capture of iodine molecules. Remarkably, the obtained 3D TTF-TAPT-COF material exhibited a superior iodine vapor adsorption capacity of up to 5.02 g/g at 348 K and under ambient pressure and an adsorption kinetics of 0.515 g/(g·h), surpassing most of other materials reported so far. The strong physiochemical interactions between iodine molecules and the frameworks of the obtained COFs were revealed by a set of experimental techniques. This study provides a feasible approach for the rational design and the construction of novel and effective COF-based adsorbents for iodine enrichment and related environmental remediation.

           Simvastatin

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The experimental studies have demonstrated that some statins have an anticancer effect against ovarian cancer in vitro and in vivo, however, the potential molecular mechanism is still unclear. In the present study, high throughput RNA sequencing(RNA-seq) technology was applied to exploring the mRNA changes treated with Simvastatin in the human ovarian cancer SKOV3 cell line. The result of CCK-8 assay shows that Simvastatin inhibits significantly SKOV3 cell viability in a concentration-dependent manner, and cell cycle according to the flow cytometry analysis result shows cell cycle arrest of G1 phase is induced in SKOV3 cells with 10 µg/mL simvastatin added for 24 h. The differential expression genes(DEGs) analysis of RNA-seq data shows that there are a total of 372 DEGs found in the Simvastatin group, of which 150 mRNAs are up-regulated and 222 mRNAs are down-regulated(fold change>2.0, q value < 0.05). Real time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(qRT-PCR) experiment has validated that the expression of KLF2, RHOB and CIDEB is up-regulated while that of DKK1, AMOTL2 and ANKRD1 is down-regulated. The DEGs are enriched in thirteen significant KEGG pathways including cell cycle, DNA replication, apoptosis, etc. This study provides supported useful information about transcriptome profiles of SKOV3 cell treated with simvastatin, and offers an application basis for the further researches on the mechanism of Simvastatin in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Covalent organic frameworks(COFs) could be used as promising candidates for membrane-based isobutene/1,3-butadiene(i-C4H8/C4H6) separation. Owing to large amounts of COFs appearing, however, the rapid prediction of optimal COFs is imperative before experimental efforts. In this work, we combine molecular simulation and machine learning to study COF membranes for efficient isolation of i-C4H8 over C4H6. Using molecular simulation, four potential COF membranes, which possess both high membrane performance score (MPS) value and moderate membrane selectivity were screened out and the mechanism of membrane separation further revealed is an adsorption dominated process. Further, random forest(RF) model with high prediction accuracy(R2>0.84) was obtained and used for elucidating key factors in controlling the membrane selectivity and i-C4H8 permeability. Ultimately, the optimal COF features were obtained through structure-performance relationship study. Our results may trigger experimental efforts to accelerate the design of novel COFs with better i-C4H8/C4H6 separation performance.

  • Mechanistic Insight into Ethanol Dehydration over SAPO-34 Zeolite by
           Solid-state NMR Spectroscopy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The reaction mechanism of ethanol dehydration over SAPO-34 zeolite is investigated by using solid-state NMR spectroscopy. SAPO-34 zeolites with different Si contents are prepared and their acidities are characterized by NMR experiments. The higher content of stronger Brønsted acid sites is correlated to the higher Si content. The adsorption of ethanol on the Brønsted acid sites in SAPO-34 leads to the formation of frustrated Lewis pairs(FLPs). Surface ethoxy species is observed by the dehydration of the FLP sites at room temperature, which can be further converted into ethene products. The decomposing of diethyl ether over Brønsted acid sites is responsible for the formation of ethoxy species at higher reaction temperatures. Triethyloxonium ions are formed in the reaction. A plausible reaction mechanism is proposed for the dehydration of ethanol over SAPO-34.

  • Decorating Covalent Organic Frameworks with High-density Chelate Groups
           for Uranium Extraction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The extraction of uranium from aqueous solution is highly desirable for sustaining the increasing demand for environmental safety and nuclear fuel. Herein, we report a strategy using a two-step covalent modification for the synthesis of covalent organic frameworks(COFs) with high-density amidoxime chelate groups at periphery. The introduction of dense amidoxime groups plays a pivotal role in uranium adsorption. The resulting COF exhibits strong affinity with the distribution coefficient of 5.2×104 mL/g and a high adsorption capacity of 319.9 mg/g. The strategy could be expanded to identify and remove different contaminants by introducing special functional groups.

  • A Unique Layered Cu-formate Hydrate of Cu(HCOO)2·1/3H2O: Structures,
           Dehydration, and Thermal and Magnetic Properties

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A new layered Cu-formate hydrate of Cu(HCOO)2·1/3H2O is unique in its water content and the strongly waved (4,4) Cu-formate layers held by interlayer weak axial Cu-Oformate bonds and O-Hwater⋯Oformate hydrogen bonds. The crystal is in orthorhombic space group Pbcn, with cell parameters at 80 K: a=7.9777(2) Å, b=7.3656(2) Å, c=21.0317(5) Å(1 Å=10−1 nm), and V=1235.83(5) Å3. The Cu2+ ions are in the environments of a square pyramid and elongated octahedron, in a ratio of 1/2 within the structure. In the layer, Cu2+ ions are connected by anti-anti formates via short basal Cu-O bonds. The structure remains unchanged until the dehydration that produces the layered anhydrous β-Cu(HCOO)2, and the possible transformation mechanism, supported by diffraction evidence, is the reorganization of the Cu-Oformate bonds across the parent layers after dehydration. The two phases exhibit anisotropic thermal expansion behaviors closely relevant to the transverse thermal vibrations of the constituents. Cu(HCOO)2·1/3H2O is a 2-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet, and exhibits a global spin-canted antiferromagnetism with the Néel temperature of 32.1 K. This is not only higher than that of the magnetically denser β-Cu(HCOO)2, but also the highest among the copper formate frameworks.

  • Insights into the Active Acid Sites for Isosorbide Synthesis from
           Renewable Sorbitol and Cellulose on Solid Acid Catalysts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sustainable synthesis of isosorbide, an important renewable platform chemical, from sorbitol and cellulose, has attracted increasing attention, but still remains challenging. Here, we have studied the effects of the acidity on the dehydration of sorbitol in water on a variety of solid acids, including zeolites, sulfonic materials, montmorillonite and mixed SiO2-Al2O3 oxide. These solid acids showed markedly different activities, which were found to be closely related to their strong Brønsted acid sites, while the weak Brønsted acid and Lewis acid sites were essentially inactive. Different from the other solid acids examined, H-ZSM-5 zeolites in a wide range of Si/Al molar ratios(25–300) exhibited superior selectivities to isosorbide in dehydration of sorbitol, consistent with the observed difference in their formation rates of the 1,4-sortbitan and 3,6-sorbitan intermediates. Kinetic studies on the sorbitol dehydration showed that 3,6-sorbitan, once it formed, dehydrated to isosorbide more readily than 1,4-sorbitan by a factor of 19, and the formation rate constant of 3,6-sorbitan on H-ZSM-5(Si/Al=25) was about three times higher than that of H-Beta(Si/Al=25). Such favorable formation of the reactive 3,6-sorbitan intermediate and the higher isosorbide selectivity on H-ZSM-5 appear to be induced by its confined pore structure composed of the paired 5-membered rings. H-ZSM-5 was also found to be efficient for the direct conversion of cellulose to isosorbide in coupling with Ru/C hydrogenation catalyst. This work provides fundamental insights into the acidity and pore structures that are helpful for the design of novel solid acids toward the efficient synthesis of isosorbide from the dehydration of sorbitol and even directly from the tandem reaction of cellulose.

  • Molten Salts Strategy for the Synthesis of CoP Nanoparticles Entrapped,
           N,P Co-doped Mesoporous Carbons as Electrocatalysts for Hydrogen Evolution

      Abstract: A molten salt process was developed to prepare CoP nanoparticles(NPs) embedded, N,P co-doped carbons with the combination of hand milling and high temperature carbonization. The characterization results implied that the as-prepared samples possessed mesoporous structures. Moreover, the mass ratios of the precursors affected the crystalline structures and the porosities of the final electrocatalysts. The as-prepared catalysts exhibited excellent electrocatalytic performances towards hydrogen evolution reaction(HER) under acidic and alkaline conditions. The as-prepared samples were designed as GxMyCoz, where x, y and z meant the amounts of glucose, melamine and CoCl2, respectively. The optimum sample of G6.0M2.0Co5.0 showed the best HER property with a low onset overpotential and a small Tafel slope, as well as excellent electrocatalytic stability.
