The local electrode atom probe (LEAP) has become the primary instrument used for atom probe tomography measurements. Recent advances in detector and laser design, together with updated hit detection algorithms, have been incorporated into the latest LEAP 5000 instrument, but the implications of these changes on measurements, particularly the size and chemistry of small clusters and elemental segregations, have not been explored. In this study, we compare data sets from a variety of materials with small-scale chemical heterogeneity using both a LEAP 3000 instrument with 37% detector efficiency and a 532-nm green laser and a new LEAP 5000 instrument with a manufacturer estimated increase to 52% detector efficiency, and a 355-nm ultraviolet laser...

Cisplatin (CDDP) has received worldwide approval for clinical use in the past decades. However, its development in cancer chemotherapy was overshadowed by severe side effects and drug resistance. Herein, we developed a CDDP drug delivery system with high encapsulation efficiency and near-infrared light stimuli-responsive drug release properties based on the coordination of novel tellurium-containing block polymer (PEG-PUTe-PEG) and CDDP. The nanocarriers made from PEG-PUTe-PEG were loaded with CDDP and indocyanine green (ICG) simultaneously...

Eu(2+)-activated Ba2ZnS3 has been reported as a red phosphor with a broad emission band peaking at 650 nm under blue excitation for white-LED. In this study, Ba2ZnS3:Eu(2+), X(-) (X = F, Cl, Br, I) phosphors doped with halide ions were prepared by traditional high-temperature solid-state reaction. Phase identification of powders was performed by X-ray powder diffraction analysis, confirming the existence of single-phase Ba2ZnS3 crystals without dopant. The corresponding excitation spectra showed an additional broad band in the green region peaking at 550 nm when the phosphor was halogenated except by the smallest F(-)...

A set of controlled surface composition films was produced utilizing amphiphilic surface-active block copolymers dispersed in a crosslinked polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) network. These block copolymers contained oligo(ethylene glycol) (PEGMA) and fluoroalkyl (AF6) side chains in selected ratios and molecular weights to control surface chemistry as well as antifouling (AF) and fouling-release (FR) performance. AF and FR properties were assessed by carrying out settlement and removal assays using two algae, the green macroalga Ulva linza (favors attachment to polar surfaces) and the unicellular diatom Navicula incerta (favors attachment to non-polar surfaces)...

To meet the requirement of high catalytic efficiency toward the reduction of p-nitrophenyl compounds, we designed a new one-dimensional Fe3O4/FeNi embedded-nanostructured catalyst synthesized by a one-pot controlling-growth-reduction process in a solvothermal system, in which Fe3O4 phase was implanted in the base of FeNi alloy. In the Fe3O4/FeNi catalyst system, the Fe3O4 embedded phase attracts the nitro group of p-nitrophenyl compounds by its high-density electrons, which can efficiently promote the activity of amorphous FeNi active centers for selective catalysis toward the reduction of a range of p-nitrophenyl compounds...

The uranyl ion (UO22+) binds phosphopeptides with high affinity and when irradiated with UV-light, it cleaves the peptide backbone. In this study, high mass accuracy tandem mass spectrometry and enzymatic assays were used to characterize the photocleavage products resulting from the uranyl photocleavage reaction of a tetraphosphorylated β-casein model peptide. We show that the primary photocleavage products of the uranyl catalysed reaction are C-terminally amidated. This observation could be of great interest to pharmaceutical industry, as efficient peptide amidating reactions are one of the top challenges of green pharmaceutical chemistry...

The green chemistry era has pushed the scientific community to investigate and implement new solvents in the phenolic compounds (PC) extraction, as alternative to the organic solvents which are toxic and may be dangerous. Recently, Deep Eutectic Solvents (DES) have been applied as extraction solvents of PC. They have the advantages to be biodegradable, easy to handle with very low toxicity. Nevertheless, the extraction process is affected by several factors: affinity between DES and the target compounds, the water content, the molar ratio between DES' starting molecules, the liquid:solid ratio between the DES and sample, and the conditions and extraction method...

Sujit Ghosh, Kinkar Biswas, Suchandra Bhattacharya, Pranab Ghosh, Basudeb Basu
The synthesis of propargylamines via A(3) coupling mostly under metal-catalyzed procedures is well known. This work invented an unprecedented effect of salicylaldehyde, one of the A(3) coupling partners, which could lead to the formation of propargylamine, an important pharmaceutical building block, in the absence of any metal catalyst and under mild conditions. The role of the hydroxy group in ortho position of salicylaldehyde has been explored, which presumably activates the Csp-H bond of the terminal alkyne leading to the formation of propargylamines in good to excellent yields, thus negating the function of the metal catalyst...

We report a seed-mediated growth of 2.3 nm AgPd nanoparticles (NPs) in the presence of 40 × 5 nm WO2.72 nanorods (NRs) for the synthesis of AgPd/WO2.72 composites. The strong interactions between AgPd NPs and WO2.72 NRs make the composites, especially the Ag48Pd52/WO2.72, catalytically active for dehydrogenation of formic acid (TOF = 1718 h(-1) and Ea = 31 kJ/mol) and one-pot reactions of formic acid, 2-nitrophenol, and aldehydes into benzoxazoles in near quantitative yields under mild conditions. The catalysis can also be extended to the one-pot reactions of ammonium formate, 2-nitroacetophenone, and aldehyde for high yield syntheses of quinazolines...

The β-glucosidases are important enzymes employed in a large number of processes and industrial applications, including biofuel production from biomass. Therefore, in this study, we reported for the first time the photobiosynthesis of stable and functional silver/silver chloride nanoparticles (Ag/AgCl-NPs) using two hyperthermostable bacterial β-glucosidases with industrial potential. The syntheses were straightforward and rapid processes carried out by mixing β-glucosidase and silver nitrate (in buffer 10mM Tris-HCl, pH 8) under irradiation with light (over a wavelength range of 450-600nm), therefore, compatible with the green chemistry procedure...

Natural deep eutectic solvents (NADESs) are considered to be new, safe solvents in green chemistry that can be widely used in many chemical processes such as extraction or synthesis. In this study, a simple extraction method based on NADES was used for the isolation of isoflavones (daidzin, genistin, genistein, daidzein) from soy products. Seventeen different NADES systems each including two or three components were tested. Multivariate data analysis revealed that NADES based on a 30% solution of choline chloride: citric acid (molar ratio of 1:1) are the most effective systems for the extraction of isoflavones from soy products...

There is a great interest in finding alternatives and green solvents in extraction processes to replace petroleum based solvents. In order to investigate these possibilities, computational methods, as Hansen solubility parameters (HSP) and conductor-like screening model for real solvent (COSMO-RS), were used in this work to predict the solvation power of a series of solvents in salmon fish lipids. Additionally, experimental studies were used to evaluate the performance in lipids extraction using 2-methyltetrahydrofurane, cyclopentyl methyl ether, dimethyl carbonate, isopropanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, p-cymene and d-limonene compared with hexane...
