Based on our previous experimental research, we studied the absorption of CO2 in the ionic liquid, 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide ([hmim][Tf2N] ), immobilized on TiO2 [rutile (110) ] with different thickness by molecular dynamics simulation. The effects of the properties (hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity) of solid interfaces were also studied with IL immobilized on graphite and TiO2 respectively. We studied the influence of the thickness of IL immobilized on TiO2 on the absorption of CO2 via structural and dynamical properties...

We present a new simulation model of the reactions in the photosynthetic electron transport chain of C3 species. We show that including recent insights about the regulation of the thylakoid proton motive force, ATP/NADPH balancing mechanisms (cyclic and non-cyclic alternative electron transport), and regulation of Rubisco activity, leads to emergent behaviors that may affect the operation and regulation of photosynthesis under different dynamic environmental conditions. The model was parameterized with experimental results in the literature, with a focus on Arabidopsis thaliana...

The mechanism for the competitive adsorption of CH4 and CO2 on coal vitrinite (DV-8, maximum vitrinite reflectance R o,max = 0.58%) was revealed through simulation and experimental methods. A saturated state was reached after absorbing 17 CH4 or 22 CO2 molecules per DV-8 molecule. The functional groups (FGs) on the surface of the vitrinite can be ranked in order of decreasing CH4 and CO2 adsorption ability as follows: [-CH3] > [-C=O] > [-C-O-C-] > [-COOH] and [-C-O-C-] > [-C=O] > [-CH3] > [-COOH]...

FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, and Monosaccharides and Polyols) are small molecules that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine and rapidly fermented in the large intestine. There is evidence that a diet low in FODMAPs reduces abdominal symptoms in approx. 70% of the patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. Wheat contains relatively high fructan levels and is therefore a major source of FODMAPs in our diet. In this study, a yeast-based strategy was developed to reduce FODMAP levels in bread...

A new strategy using computer-assisted design of substituted imidazolate-based ionic liquids (ILs) through tuning the absorption enthalpy as well as the basicity of ILs for improving SO2 capture, CO2 capture, and SO2/CO2 selectivity was reported. The best substituted imidazolate-based ILs as absorbents for different applications were predicted at first. During the absorption, a high SO2 capacity up to 5.28 and 2.38 mole SO2 per mole IL could be achieved by ILs with CH3-imidazolate anion under 1.0 and 0.1 bar, respectively, through tuning multiple N∙∙∙S interactions between SO2 and N atoms in the imidazolate anion with different substituent...

Monitoring the environmental factors during shake-flask culture of microorganisms can help to optimise the initial steps of bioprocess development. Herein, we developed a circulation direct monitoring and sampling system (CDMSS) that can monitor the behaviour of CO2 and O2 in the gas-liquid phases and obtain a sample without interrupting the shaking of the culture in Erlenmeyer flasks capped with breathable culture plugs. Shake-flask culturing of Escherichia coli using this set-up indicated that a high concentration of CO2 accumulated not only in the headspace (maximum ~100 mg/L) but also in the culture broth (maximum ~85 mg/L) during the logarithmic phase (4...

We fabricated synthetic double-crossover (DX) DNA lattices and natural salmon DNA (SDNA) thin films, doped with 3 combinations of double divalent metal ions (M(2+))-doped groups (Co(2+)-Ni(2+), Cu(2+)-Co(2+), and Cu(2+)-Ni(2+)) and single combination of a triple M(2+)-doped group (Cu(2+)-Ni(2+)-Co(2+)) at various concentrations of M(2+) ([M(2+)]). We evaluated the optimum concentration of M(2+) ([M(2+)]O) (the phase of M(2+)-doped DX DNA lattices changed from crystalline (up to ([M(2+)]O) to amorphous (above [M(2+)]O)) and measured the current, absorbance, and photoluminescent characteristics of multiple M(2+)-doped SDNA thin films...

During solar salt production, large quantities of bittern, a liquid by-product containing high inorganic substance concentrations, are produced. The purpose of this research was to examine the utilization of waste bittern generated from salterns as a source for Mg production and as an absorbent for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture. The study was conducted in a sequential two-step process. At NaOH/Mg molar ratios of 2.70-2.75 and pH 9.5-10.0, > 99% Mg precipitation from the bittern was achieved. After washing with water, 100-120 g/L of precipitate containing 94% Mg(OH)2 was recovered from the bittern...

Quantum chemistry calculations and kinetic modeling were performed to investigate the nitrosation mechanism and kinetics of diamine piperazine (PZ), an alternative solvent for widely used monoethanolamine in postcombustion CO2 capture (PCCC), by two typical nitrosating agents, NO2(-) and N2O3, in the presence of CO2. Various PZ species and nitrosating agents formed by the reactions of PZ, NO2(-), and N2O3 with CO2 were considered. The results indicated that the reactions of PZ species having NH group with N2O3 contribute the most to the formation of nitrosamines in the absorber unit of PCCC and follow a novel three-step nitrosation mechanism, which is initiated by the formation of a charge-transfer complex...

The biomimetic approach using immobilized enzymes is useful for the synthesis of structurally defined inorganic materials. In this work, carbonic anhydrase (CA) from bovine erythrocytes was covalently conjugated at 25°C to the liposomes composed of 15mol% 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine-N-(glutaryl) (NG-POPE), and the zwitterionic and anionic phospholipids with the same acyl chains as NG-POPE. For the conjugation, the carboxyl groups of liposomal NG-POPE were activated with 11mM 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide (EDC) and 4...

Photoelectrochemical (PEC) reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) is a potential method for production of fuels and chemicals from a C1 feedstock accumulated in the atmosphere. However, the low solubility of CO2 in water, and complicated processes associated with capture and conversion, render CO2 conversion inefficient. A new concept is proposed in which a PEC system is used to capture and convert CO2 into formic acid. The process is assisted by an ionic liquid (1-aminopropyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide) aqueous solution, which functions as an absorbent and electrolyte at ambient temperature and pressure...

CO2 fluxes across water-air interfaces of river systems play important roles in regulating the regional and global carbon cycle. However, great uncertainty remains as to the contribution of these inland water bodies to the global carbon budget. Part of the uncertainty stems from limited understanding of the CO2 fluxes at diurnal and seasonal frequencies caused by aquatic metabolism. Here, we measured surface water characteristics (temperature, pH, and DO, DIC, Ca(2+) concentrations) and CO2 fluxes across the air-water interface at two transects of Guijiang River, southwest China to assess the seasonal and diurnal dynamics of fluvial carbon cycling and its potential role in regional and global carbon budgets...

Waterborne nanoemulsion of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A type epoxy resin (DGEBA) with droplet size of around 124nm was prepared by using an ultrasonic-assisted supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) technique in an autoclave reactor at a low temperature (32°C). A view cell positioned in-line with the ultrasonic probe allowed observation of the emulsification process. From the image analysis and droplet size measurement, the influence mechanisms of the ultrasonic power, the degree of mixing of scCO2 with DGEBA, the adding amount of emulsifier, and the system pressure on emulsification process and emulsion droplet size were investigated...
