Novel photocatalyts were synthesized by dispersion of AgX (X=I, Br, Cl) in nano clinoptilolite particles (NCP). The obtained composites (AgX-NCP) were used for the photodegrading of aqueous mixture of 4-methoxy aniline and 4-chloro-3-nitroaniline under Hg lamp irradiation. All samples were characterized by FT-IR, XRD, DRS and TEM. The effects of operational parameters such as: the loaded extent of AgX, the amount of photocatalyst, initial pH and concentration on photo mineralization were studied. The degradation extent was monitored by UV-Vis spectroscopy and the results were confirmed by the chemical oxygen demand (COD)...

We present a pH-responsive poly(ethyleneglycol)-b-poly(2-(diisopropylamino) ethyl methacrylate) block copolymer (MPEG-PPDA) that can self-assemble into micelles at very low critical micelle concentration. The formed micelles exhibit superior stability in physiological environment and pH-triggered transforming capability between self-assembly and disassembly. Moreover, the resulting micelles can load hydrophobic anticancer drug molecules such as doxorubicin in the core of micelles. The pH-triggered drug release kinetics matches the classical hydrazone bond model...

Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is a major pro-inflammatory cytokine that is mainly secreted by macrophages during inflammation. Here, we synthesized a series of N-(2-hydroxy)propyl-3-trimethyl ammonium chitosan chlorides (HTCCs), and then used a complex coacervation technique or tripolyphosphate (TPP)-assisted ionotropic gelation strategy to complex the HTCCs with TNF-α siRNA (siTNF) to form nanoparticles (NPs). The resultant NPs had a desirable particle size (210-279nm), a slightly positive zeta potential (14-22mV), and negligible cytotoxicity against Raw 264...

Cu3(BTC)2 (BTC: 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid) showed to be an efficient and reusable heterogeneous solid catalyst for the formation of SiO bond through dehydrogenative coupling of dimethylphenylsilane (1) with phenol under mild reaction conditions. It is observed that Fe(BTC), MIL-101(Cr) and UiO-66(Zr) are not able to promote this cross coupling between 1 and phenol. Cu3(BTC)2 exhibits higher stability and activity compared to other MOFs studied here. Furthermore, Cu3(BTC)2 is reused for three consecutive cycles with a slight decay in its activity...

MnO2-decorated magnesium wire composite (MnO2-M) was fabricated via a simple hydrothermal reaction and accompanied by the calcination process (MnO2/Mn3O4-M). To clarify the optimized reaction condition of δ-MnO2 in the system, the effect of different pH, temperature and pollutant concentration of methyl orange (MO) for degradation process were investigated. Experimental results showed that MnO2-M achieves a high removal rate of 76% (2h, at 25°C) in the presence of H2O2 at pH 2.5, which is higher than that of MnO2/Mn3O4-M (54%)...

In this study, Ag hybrid BiPO4 (Ag/BiPO4) heterostructures were synthesized using a solvothermal method. The morphologies and optical properties of the Ag/BiPO4 heterostructures were drastically different from those of BiPO4 and were highly dependent on the AgNO3:BiPO4 weight percent during the synthesis. The three formulated heterostructures were evaluated for their photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue (MB) under UV light illumination; the 0.5%Ag/BiPO4 heterostructure was observed to result in 99% degradation of MB within 60min, a remarkably higher level of photodegradation activity than the levels caused by TiO2 and BiPO4...

The adverse effect of airborne PM2.5 pollutes on human beings and the environment, most likely due to heavy metal leaching, has received extensive attention recently. It is urgently required to develop a simple and effective method to suppress the toxicity of PM2.5 pollutes. In this study, the heavy metal content of PM2.5 pollutes around Zhejiang university were firstly identified. Their cytotoxicity was confirmed, by inducing significantly enhanced intracellular reactive oxygen species level. Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) submicron hydrogel particles with tunable crosslinking densities and thermo-responsive swelling/shrinking properties were then prepared by adjusting the crosslinking density...

Layered Fe(II)-Fe(III) hydroxides (green rusts, GRs) are efficient reducing agents against oxidizing contaminants such as chromate, nitrate, selenite, and nitroaromatic compounds and chlorinated solvents. In this study, we adopted a buffered precipitation approach where glycine (GLY) was used in the synthesis of sulfate-interlayered GR (GRSO4) by aerial oxidation of Fe(II) or co-precipitation by adding Fe(III) salt to an aqueous solution of Fe(II) at constant pH. In both the oxidation and the co-precipitation methods pure crystalline GRSO4 was precipitated in the presence of 70mM GLY (pH 8...

To reduce the size of Ni(OH)2 aggregates is an effective way to improve their capacitive performance for the electrodes of supercapacitors. The ultrasmall Ni(OH)2 aggregates (1-2nm) on active carbon (AC) can be obtained by depositing the soluble precursor of Ni(OH)2 on AC at low temperature. The Ni(OH)2/AC samples were characterized by SEM, TEM, XRD and XPS. The specific capacitance of ultrasmall Ni(OH)2 aggregates in the Ni(OH)2/AC composite can reach 2949Fg(-1) at a scan rate of 20mVs(-1), which is higher than its theoretical specific capacitance (2382Fg(-1))...

The present study reports an inexpensive and simple bottom-up technology for fabricating superhydrophobic antireflection coatings with highly ordered hemispherical nanowell structures, which are assembled by a scalable Langmuir-Blodgett technology. The subwavelength gratings lead to a gradual change in the effective refractive index, substantially suppressing specular reflection over the entire visible wavelength range. After surface modification with fluorinated silane, the resulting nanowell arrays exhibit superhydrophobic surface with high static water contact angle (154°) and low water contact angle hysteresis (7°)...

Application of inorganic-organic clays (IOCs) for the remediation of hexavalent chromium (Cr (VI)) and the effect of bisphenol-A (BPA) were investigated. IOCs were better adsorbents for the removal of Cr (VI) than organoclay. Solution pH significantly affected the surface charge of IOCs and speciation of Cr in the solution; hence, the adsorption of Cr onto IOCs. Pseudo-second order model and Langmuir model were the best fit for the kinetics and equilibrium data, indicating chemisorption and formation of monolayer on homogenous adsorption sites, respectively...
