    The production of propylene carbonate (PC) from urea and 1,2-propanediol (PG) was investigated in a batch process. The catalytic performances of zinc chloride and magnesium chloride were investigated for this reaction system. The influences of various operation conditions on the PC yield were explored. In this work, MgCl2 and ZnCl2 showed the excellent catalytic activity toward PC synthesis, and the yields of propylene carbonate reached 96.5% and 92.4%, respectively. The optimum reaction conditions were as follows: ethanol/urea molar ratio of 4, catalyst concentration of 1.5%, reaction temperature of 160℃, reaction time of 3 h, respectively. The route from urea and 1,2-propanediol shows advantages, such as mild reaction condition and safe operation. The catalytic system is environmentally benign.

    The catalytic and signaling activities of insulin receptor kinase (IRK) are regulated by the autophosphorylation of three tyrosine residues in a cytoplasmic protein-tyrosine kinase domain at Tyro 1158, Tyro 1162 and Tyro 1163. In this study, time-course of the auphosphorylation of the core kinase (residues 978-1283) from IRK was directly investigated by online electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. It is found that two tyrosine residues were phosphorylated in reaction time range of 30 min. This study implies that mass spectrometric technique must be a powerful tool to directly monitor the biological macromolecular modification and will also provide the information of the order and the mechanism of autophosphorylation at the tyrosine sites coupled with tandem mass spectrometric technique.

    In the present work, a novel analytical method was proposed for the determination of toluene diisocyanate (TDI) in syntheticrubber track by ion chromatography (IC) coupled with an ultraviolet detector setting at 212 nm. TDI can be hydrolyzed to toluene diamine (TDA) which can be separated by cation-exchange IC easily. The optimum IC separation was performed on an IonPac CS12A column (150 mm×4.0 mm) using 20 mmol L-1 sodium sulfate, 10 mmol L-1 sulfuric acid and 10% acetonitrile as eluent.It was found that a higher signal response of TDA could be obtained under alkaline condition. A suppressor was used to change the acidic eluent into alkaline one. 0.8 mol L-1 potassium hydroxide was chosen as the optimum regeneration eluent. With the added suppressor and regenerant, signal response was magnified by about 16 times and lower limit of detection (LOD, 0.13μg L-1) was obtained. Within-day relative standard deviation (R.S.D.) was less than 3.6%. The recoveries of TDI spiked in synthetic-rubber track samples were 96.4-110.6%.

    A novel mode-filtered light gas sensor has been reported. It was constructed by inserting an optical fiber deposited by a thin silicone cladding of cryptophane A into a fused-silica capillary. When different concentration of methane gas was introduced to the sensor, the phenomenon that mode-filtered light intensity decreased with the increasing concentration of methane was observed. And a linear relationship was obtained within the methane concentration range of 0.0-16.0% (v/v). The detection limit was 0.06% (v/v). The mode-filtered light sensor has been exploited to respond to various concentrations of methane gas at room temperature.

    A novel method for the determination of five carbamate pesticides (metolcarb, carbofuran, carbaryl, isoprocard and diethofencard) in water samples was developed by dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) coupled with high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detector (HPLC-DAD). Some experimental parameters that influence the extraction efficiency were studied and optimized to obtain the best extraction results. Under the optimum conditions for the method, the calibration curve was linear in the concentration range from 5 to 1000 ng mL-1 for all the five carbamate pesticides,with the correlation coefficients (r2) varying from 0.9984 to 0.9994. Good enrichment factors were achieved ranging from 80 to 177-fold, depending on the compound. The limits of detection (LODs) (S/N=3) were ranged from 0.1 to 0.5 ng mL-1. The method has been successfully applied to the analysis of the pesticide residues in environmental water samples.

    A carbon paste electrode modified with electropolymerized films of isonicotinic acid was developed. The modified electrode shows excellent electrocatalytic activity toward the oxidation of both dopamine (DA) and epinephrine (EP). Separation of the reduction peak potentials for dopamine and epinephrine was about 357 mV in pH 5.3 phosphate buffer solution (PBS) and the character was used for the detection DA and EP simultaneously. The peak currents increase linearly with DA and EP concentration over the range of 8.0×10-5 to 7.0×10-4 mol/L and 5.0×10-6 to 1.0×10-4 mol/L with detection limits of 2×10-5 and 1×10-6 mol/L, respectively. The interference studies showed that the modified electrode exhibits excellent selectivity in the presence of large excess of ascorbic acid (AA).

    Simultaneous determination of epinephrine (EP) and dopamine (DA) at 2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) modified electrode was studied. The oxidation peaks of the mixture of EP and DA appeared at the same potential, but the cathodic peak currents were only linear to the concentration of DA, whereas the anodic peak currents were equal to the sum of individual anodic peak currents of EP and DA. Therefore, a novel electrochemical method for the simultaneous determination of EP and DA at a DMSA modified electrode (DMSA/Au electrode) by cyclic voltammetry was established. The DMSA self-assembled electrode showed good sensitivity, selectivity and stability and could be used to determine DA and EP, simultaneously, in the real application with satisfactory results.

    This study assessed the treatment of azo dye Acid Orange 7(AO7) containing wastewater by laboratory-scale up-flow constructed wetland (UFCW) with and without supplementary aeration. The supplementary aeration could effectively control the ratio of anaerobic and aerobic zones in the UFCW reactor. The results clearly show the supplementary aeration boosted the biodegradation of organic pollutants and mineralization of intermediate aromatic amines formed by AO7 degradation.

    We herein report a one-step, wet-chemical approach to synthesizing gold nanoplates in large quantities via the AuCl4- thermal reduction process by aniline, without introducing additional capping agent or surfactant. It is found that the reduction kinetics of AuCl4- is greatly altered by varying the initial molar ratio of aniline to AuCl4-. Moreover, further investigation reveals that the insitu formed polyaniline could serve effectively as a capping agent to preferably adsorb the {111} facets of gold crystals during a slow reduction process, directing the formation of gold nanoplates.

    Calorimetric measurements in 0.8[xB2O3-(1-x)SiO2]-0.2Na2O glasses and melts are performed in HF calorimetry at 298 K and lead borate calorimetry at 973 K, respectively. Mixing enthalpy is affected by both temperature and composition. At 298 K, the mixing enthalpies are slightly negative and components are miscible at that temperature in the whole composition range. At 973 K,the sign of the mixing enthalpies reflect the tendency to phase separation at silica-rich compositions, which is avoided for kinetic reasons as shown by SEM results. Therefore, one is tempted to consider the quenched 0.8[xB2O3-(1-x)SiO2-0.20Na2O] glasses and melts as single-phase materials.

    A novel cobalt-free perovskite based on Ba0.5Sr0.5Fe0.8Zn0.2O3-δ (BSFZ) were prepared by EDTA-citric acid method. The lattice constants of the BSFZ perovskite were characterized by in situ high-temperature X-ray diffraction (HTXRD). The thermal expansion coefficient of BSFZ is 10.5×10-6 K-1, which is lower than that of cobalt-based perovskite materials. The BSFZ membrane was also used to construct reactors for the partial oxidation of methane (POM) to syngas. Results show that the BSFZ membrane can be operated for the POM reaction for more than 100 h without any fractures. The CO selectivity of 97% is obtained.The steady oxygen permeation flux reaches around 2.5 mL/min cm2 during POM reaction.
