    An attempt has been made to prepare terephthalic acid (TPA) by solvent-free oxidation of p-xylene (PX) with air over tetra(p-chlorophenylporphinato)manganese chloride (T(pCl)PPMnCl) and cobalt acetate. The co-catalysis between T(pCl)PPMnCl and Co(OAc)2 has been discovered under solvent-free conditions. TPA yield could be increased significantly when T(pCl)PPMnCl and Co(OAc)2 were used together. The addition of T(pCl)PPMnCl into the reaction mixture over Co(OAc)2 significantly accelerated the rate-determining step of the oxidation process of PX to TPA. The effect of temperature on reaction was also investigated.

    Novel acetylene terminated silazane compounds, with three types of substituent, were synthesized by the aminolysis of dichlorosilane with 3-aminophenylacetylene (3-APA). Thermal property of the compounds is studied by thermogravimetry analysis (TGA). It shows that the acetylene terminated silazane has high temperature resistance. The char yield at 1000℃ is 77.6, 81.9 and 68.7 wt% for methyl, vinyl, and phenyl substituted silazane, respectively. The pyrolysis kinetics of the silazane is investigated by non-isothermal thermogravimetric measurement. The pyrolysis undergoes three stages, which is resolved by PEAKFIT. The kinetic parameters are calculated by the Kissinger method. The role of functionalities on the thermal resistance is discussed. The vinyl-silazane exhibits higher thermal stability because of higher cross-linking density.

    This paper describes the combustion synthesis of α-Fe2O3 nanopowder at much lower temperature and its catalytic activity for the one-pot preparation of 3,4-dihydropyrano[c]chromenes. The combustion derived α-Fe2O3 nanopowder was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), Braunauer, Emmett and Teller (BET) surface area, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Highly efficient, three-component condensation of aromatic aldehyde, malanonitrile and 4-hydroxycoumarin catalyzed by α-Fe2O3 nanoparticles at room temperature is described. The method offers an excellent alternative to the synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrano[c]chromenes. The reactions are rapid, clean, and the products with good yield and high purity.

    Synthesis and structure of Ti complex having a pair of chelating aminotropone[O-N] ligand have been reported. Calculations of density functional theory (DFT) studies suggest that bis(aminotropone) Ti complex, when activated with methylaluminoxane (MAO), have high potential for the polymerization of olefinic monomers. These theoretical studies also show that the active species derived from bis(aminotropone) Ti catalyst normally possess higher electrophilicity nature compared with those produced using bis(phenoxyimine) Ti complexes (Ti-FI catalysts) which are known as high performance olefin polymerization catalysts. Bis(aminotropone) Ti catalyst generates a catalytically active species that has higher electrophilicity than a Ti-FI catalysts.

    In this study, the preparation of a new kind of magnetic and luminescent Fe3O4/CdTe nanocomposites was demonstrated. Superparamagnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles were first synthesized by hydrothermal coprecipitation of ferric and ferrous ions, followed by the modification of their surfaces with tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAOH) and the chemical activation with aspartic acid. The surface-modified Fe3O4 nanoparticles were then covalently coated with CdTe quantum dots (QDs), which were modified with mercaptoacetic acid (MPA), to form the Fe3O4/CdTe magnetic and luminescent nanocomposites through the coordination of the amino groups on the surfaces of Fe3O4 and the carboxyl groups on CdTe QDs. The structure and properties of as-synthesized nanocomposites were characterized. It was indicated that the nanocomposites possessed structure with an average diameter of 40-50 nm, yellow-green emission feature and room temperature ferro-magnetism. Both the fluorescence and UV-vis absorption spectra of the nanocomposites showed a blue shift comparing with those of CdTe QDs. The mechanism of the blue shift was presented. The nanocomposites retained the ferromagnetic property with a saturation magnetization of 8.9 emu/g.

The obtained PUU, which is recorded as P(LA-co-PDO)-PUU here, may demonstrate enhanced phase separation and thus improved shape memory property. FTIR was employed to characterize the copolymers, and the effects of NCO/OH molar ratios on Tg of PUU was investigated by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results revealed the successful synthesis of P(LA-co-PDO)-PUU. In addition, the Tg of P(LA-co-PDO)-PUU increased from 37.9℃ to 44.2℃ with the increase NCO/OH ratios from 1.1 to 1.2. The P(LA-co-PDO)-PUU with Tg close to body temperature will have potential applications as shape memory polymers in biomedical fields, especially in minimally invasive surgery.

    Amphiphilic terpolymer (TPR) exhibits good film-forming behavior on pure water observed by means of π-A> isotherms. To gain insight into physical properties of TPR, the films have been deposited on silicon substrates at different surface pressure by Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique. It was found that the increase in peak intensities of stretching mode was due to orderly packing of the films. The contact angles increased with increasing surface pressure, indicating an increase in hydrophobicity due to dense packing of chains of TPR. The cyclic voltammetric measurements indicated that TPR showed good current shielding effect for electron-transfer. In a word, LB films of TPR can produce a variety of structures with varied topography, enabling us to control not only the functionality of the surface, but also the interfacial transport characteristics.

    A one-step procedure to hydrophilize monodisperse poly (chloromethyl-styrene-co-divinylbenzene) beads has been presented with 2-hydroxy-3-[4-(hydroxymethyl)-1H-l,2,3-triazol-l-yl] propyl 2-methylacrylate (HTMA) as monomer by surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP). The length of the grafted poly (HTMA) chain was varied via controlling the ratio of HTMA to initiator on the surface of the beads. Using these grafted beads as the stationary phase in hydrophilic interaction chromatography, good separation was obtained for nucleosides in the mobile phase of acetonitrile-water. It was also found that the retention time and selectivity of solutes showed a positive relationship with the length of the grafted poly (HTMA) chain.
