Reverse micelle (RM) and ultrasound assisted reverse micelle (UARM) were applied to the synthesis of novel thorium nanostructures as metal organic frameworks (MOFs). Characterization with different techniques showed that the Th-MOF sample synthesized by UARM method had higher thermal stability (354°C), smaller mean particle size (27nm), and larger surface area (2.02×10(3)m(2)/g). Besides, in this novel approach, the nucleation of crystals was found to carry out in a shorter time. The synthesis parameters of UARM method were designed by 2(k-1) factorial and the process control was systematically studied using analysis of variance (ANOVA) and response surface methodology (RSM)...

Hollow mesoporous CuCo2O4 (meso-CuCo2O4) microspheres were successfully synthesized by decomposing metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as the template. The as-prepared CuCo2O4 microspheres were first simultaneously used for H2O2 biosensing and glucose biofuel cell (GFC) as the enzyme mimic. The resulting of meso-CuCo2O4 displayed not only excellent catalytic performances to H2O2 including a super-fast response time (within 2s), a super-high sensitivity (654.23 μA mM(-1) cm(-2)) and a super-low detection limit (3nM at S/N = 3) on the sensor, but also great values in GFC as anode material with an open circuit voltage of 0...

The production and availability of enantiomerically pure compounds that spurred the development of chiral technologies and materials are very important to the fine chemicals and pharmaceutical industries. By coordinative alignment of enantiopure guests in the metal‒organic frameworks, we reported an approach to control over the chirality of homochiral crystallization and asymmetric transformation. Synthesized by achiral triphenylamine derivatives, the chirality of silver frameworks was determined by the encapsulated enantiopure azomethine ylides, from which clear interaction patterns were observed to explore the chiral induction principles...

Carbon material containing nickel, nitrogen and sulfur (Ni-NSC) has been synthesized using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as precursor by annealing treatment with a size from 200 to 300 nm. Pd nanoparticles supported on the Ni-NSC (Pd/Ni-NSC) are used as electrocatalysts for ethanol oxidation in alkaline media. Due to the synergistic effect between Pd and Ni, S, N, free OH radicals can form on the surface of Ni, N and S atoms at lower potentials, which react with CH3CO intermediate species on the Pd surface to produce CH3COO(-) and release the active sites...

The disposition dose of clopidogrel is different in CYP2C19*2 gene carriers and non-carriers. High-dose clopidogrel has been recommended to overcome a low-responsiveness to clopidogrel in patients with the CYP2C19*2 gene. To guide the choice of clopidogrel dosage and catalyse a development in the field of personalized therapy, we developed an ultrasensitive electrochemical biosensor to detect CYP2C19*2 gene. We constructed a novel assay based on cerium dioxide (CeO2)-functionalized carboxyl fullerene (c-C60) supported by Pt nanoparticles (c-C60/CeO2/PtNPs) for signal amplification...

In this work, we present a kind of ultrafine cobalt oxides encapsulated by N-doped carbon (donated as CoOx/CN) as efficient catalysts for hydrogenation of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) process. The CoOx/CN was fabricated through a pyrolysis strategy using an N-containing metal-organic framework (Co-MOF) as precursor followed by a fine thermal-treatment. With an optimized pyrolysis temperature of 500 °C, the CoOx species present as ultrafine particles highly dispersed in the obtained catalyst (CoOx/CN-500)...
