    A series of bis-quaternary ammonium compounds (bis-QACs) N, N'-hexamethylenebis(1-alkyl-4-carbamoyl pyridinium bromide) (4BCAP-6, n) (alkyl chain length, n=8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18) were synthesized and characterized. Their surface tensions, critical micelle concentrations (CMC), and antimicrobial activities were evaluated. 4BCAP-6. 10 exhibited the strongest antimicrobial activities except for that against Proteus vulgari. The activities of 4BCAP-6, n against Escherichia colt zk126 were not significantly influenced by temperature. pH and initial bacteria concentration. These results indicate that bis-QACs exhibit high antimicrobial activity regardless of the environmental conditions.

    Several 2,5-dimethyl-N-substituted pyrroles were prepared by the condensation of different substituted anilines with 2,5-hexanedione using nano lead oxide as an efficient and recyclable catalyst. All the synthesized compounds are confirmed through IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectral data. Nano lead oxide β-PbO (P85) was prepared by dissolving lead acetate dihydrate in 1-propanol at a pH 9.0 under stirring at 85 ℃. The structural study and surface morphology of the lead oxide (PbO) were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the functional groups of the PbO sample were investigated using infrared spectrophotometer.

    We report herein the use of p-dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid (DBSA) as a catalyst for a one-pot Biginelli reaction to afford 3,4-dihydropyrimidinone derivatives in good to excellent yields. This reaction proceeds efficiently in water and under solvent free conditions. Comparisons of results indicate that although the yields are high and comparable for both methods, the reaction times are considerably shorter under solvent free conditions.

    A new homologous series of isoflavone-based ethers, 7-(4-bromoalkyloxy)-3-(4'-decyloxyphenyl)-4H-1-benzopyran-4-ones were synthesized and characterized. The mesomorphic properties of all homologues were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and polarizing optical microscopy (POM). Enantiotropic smectic A (SmA) phase was observed for all homologues. The structure-property study was carried out by comparing the mesomorphic behavior of the homologues with those previously reported analogues. The bromine atom from the alkyloxy side chain of the benzene ring fused to the heterocyclic moiety was found to be capable of changing the mesomorphic properties.

    A cobalt(Ⅱ) complex containing mixed-ligands of 1, 10-phenathrolinc (phen) and glycollic acid (GA). [Co(GA)2(phen)] was synthesized and its structure was characterized by X-ray diffraction. The interaction of the complex with DNA was investigated by electronic absorption spectra and electrochemical methods. Electronic absorption spectrum experiments showed that after interaction with DNA, the characteristic absorption peaks of [Co(GA)2(phen)] underwent hypochromic effect as well as red-shift. Also, the binding strength of 3.8×l04 L/mol was estimated by titration method. Electrochemical assays revealed that the redox peak currents of the complex decreased obviously accompanied by a positive shift of the formal potential after association with DNA. All these results revealed that the synthesized cobalt complex bound with DNA via an intercalation mode.

    The interaction of lysozyme (Lys) and gold nanoparticles was investigated via UV-vis absorption and resonance light-scattering method. There are some changes of the plasmon absorption and resonance light-scattering of gold nanoparticles that were observed via the addition of Lys. The normalized plasmon absorption and resonance light-scattering intensity with gold nanoparticles were both linear with 1-20 nmol/L Lys. A simple model about the component of the gold nanoparticles and Lys complex was established and the calculated result was fitted well in their concentration ratio. Furthermore, the activity analysis of Lys showed that the interaction was weak and nondestructive.

    The fabrication of poly (2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid)/MWNTs modified glass electrode (PPDA/MWNTs/GCE) was proposed and used for individual or simultaneous determination of guanine and adenine. The performances of the PPDA/MWNTs/GCE were characterized with cyclic voltammetry (CV). The modified electrode exhibited enhanced electrocatalytic behavior and good stability for the detection of guanine and adenine. Differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) was used to determine the concentration of guanine, adenine. The detection limit (S/N=3) for guanine and adenine was 0.045 μmol/L and 0.05 μmol/L, respectively. The electrochemical method for the measurement of guanine and adenine in calf thymus DNA was also developed with this modified electrode and the result was satisfactory.

    Structurally simple salicylaldehyde-based fluorescent sensors for amino acids have been obtained by one-step or two-step synthesis. These sensors show significant fluorescence enhancement in the presence of many amino acids at concentrations as low as 10 -5 mol/L. The reversible reaction of the aldehydes with amino acids to form imines in aqueous solution is proposed to account for the observed fluorescence enhancement.

In this work, molecular crowding agent was firstly applied to the preparation of MIPs monolithic column. A new polymerization system based on molecular crowding surrounding was developed to prepare enrofloxacin-imprinted monolith, which was composed of polystyrene and tetrahydrofuran. The result showed that the monolithic MIPs under molecular crowding conditions presented good molecular recognition for enrofloxacin with an imprinting factor of 3.03.

    A novel waterborne stilbene-based polyurethane fluorescent brightener dispersion WPU-VBL was synthesized by incorporating chemically disodium 4,4'-bis[(4-anilino-6-hydroxyethylamino-1,3,5-triazin-2-y1)amino]stilbene-2,2'-disulphonate (VBL) into the polyurethane chain using isophorone diisocyanate, poly(propylene glycol) and 2,2-dimethylol propionic acid. The structure of WPU-VBL was confirmed by means of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The UV-vis absorption analysis showed a hypsochromic shift of 16 nm when VBL was blocked into polyurethane chain. Number average molecular weight of 2.1×104, molecular weight distribution of 2.1 and average latex particle size of about 70 nm for WPU-VBL were determined based on the analysis of gel permeation chromatography and laser particle size analyzer. It was found that the fluorescence intensity of WPU-VBL was prominently enhanced because of the micro-circumstance of VBL and the fluorescence of WPU-VBL was very stable.

    Two novel copolymers based on squaraine and fluorine units have been synthesized through palladium catalyzed Suzuki coupling reaction and Sonogashira coupling reaction, respectively. The structures and properties of the two copolymers were characterized by FT-IR, NMR, UV-vis absorbance (Abs), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and cyclic voltammetry (CV). The solution absorption spectrums of P1 and P2 show two distinct absorption bands, one locates at 300-500 nm and the other at 600-800 nm. The absorption spectrums of P1 and P2 in films are broadened obviously and the spectral responses are extended up to 900 nm. Thermal gravimetric analysis demonstrates that the polymers are stable. Cyclic voltammetry experiment shows that the band gaps of the copolymers are 1.65 eV and 1.67 eV, respectively, suggesting their potential for applications as solar cells materials.
