    (3S,4R)-Bengamide E (2) was synthesized starting from D-glucono-δ-lactone (3) and the key deoxygenation step from13to15was achieved by the application of NaBH3CN and ZnI2.Compared with natural bengamide E (1), the synthetic compound (3S,4R)-bengamide E (2) was inactive against the cell growth of HUVEC and cancer cells.These data represent the significance of the stereochemistry at C-3 and C-4 of bengamides for structural recognition and binding with the target(s).

    One novel porphyrin p-Q2 is planned to be synthesized by condensation between ATPP and Q1.However, after separation by chromatography and characterization with IR, 1H NMR, HR-MS and X-ray, p-Q1 is obtained unexpectedly.Compared the structure of p-Q1 with that of p-Q2, it is realized that an intramolecular cyclization rearrangement takes place when the azo group is situated in the o-position to the amido group.This rearrangement offers a new way to prepare indazole heterocycle.In addition, the spectral properties of p-Q1 have been studied by UV-vis and steady state fluorescence spectroscopy.Strong fluorescence quenching is observed in the preliminary emission spectrum due to the proposed electron transfer from the excited porphyrin to the anthraquinone moieties.

    The voltammetric behaviour of three 5-nitroimidazoles, metronidazole, tinidazole and ornidazole, was investigated, and a method was developed for the simultaneous determination of these compounds, based on their reduction at a hanging mercury drop electrode(HMDE)in pH 8.95 buffer with differential pulse voltammetric(DPV)approach.Well defined voltammetric waves with peak potentials of-692,-640 and-652 mV were observed for these compounds, respectively.It is difficult to determine them individually from their mixtures without preseparation, for their voltammetric peaks overlapped seriously, so the chemometrics were used to resolve the overlapped voltammogram and quantify the mixtures.The proposed method was successfully applied to the determination of three 5-nitroimidazoles in milk and honey samples.

    In this paper, the TiO2 nanotubes were synthesized by hydrothermal method usinga 10 mol/LNaOH aqueous solution at 150℃.The structure of prepared materials was characterized by X-ray diffraction(XRD), transmission electron microscopy(TEM), scanning electron microscope(SEM)and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller(BET).The prepared TiO2 nanotubes were used to prepare thick film gas sensors and the gas sensing properties to various gases were tested.Results show the prepared TiO2 nanotube gas sensors responses to ethanol under dry condition at 450℃.This could be attributed to the fact that it had high porous morphology and a higher pore volume, which can promote the diffusion of ethanol deep inside the films and improve the sensor response.Moreover, the gas sensor made with nanotubes exhibit high selective response towards ethanol gas compared with H2, CO, acetone.

    Multi-cyclic CaO carbonation/calcination is an attractive method for CO2 capture during coal combustion. However, the capture capacity of CaO sharply decreases with increasing carbonation/calcination cycles. In order to improve the stability of CO2 capture capacity of CaO during carbonation/calcination cycles, synthetic CaO/Al2O3 sorbents were synthesized by two methods: wet chemistry and sol-gel-combustion-synthesis(SGCS)to make a further comparison. The results indicate that the SGCS-made CaO/ Al2O3=80:20 wt% sorbent provides a competitive performance of a capture capacity of 0.43 g-CO2/g-sorbent after 20 cycles.

    By means of a stochastic model suggested in this paper for the systems with local non-equilibrium excited thermal fluctuations, the famous Shannon entropy is extended to include the heat conduction processes controlled externally by boundary constraints of constant temperature gradients at two sides.Meanwhile, using the description of master equation for the continuous Markov processes a balance equation of stochastic entropy production valid for one dimension gaseous heat conduction systems with high values of Prandtl number has been also established.Based on it, a general expression for both the stochastic entropy production and the entropy production of fluctuations have been further deduced by the Ω-expansions.In this formalism, all kinds of stochastic contributions to the dissipation from the non-equilibrium thermal fluctuation and internal noise turn explicit.
