Microporous layered silicates: old but new microporous materials
The properties and applications of microporous layered silicates, having both intralayer micropores and interlayer spaces, are reviewed.
Can formate dehydrogenase from Candida boidinii catalytically reduce carbon dioxide, bicarbonate, or carbonate to formate?
It was found that CbFDH was catalytically reduce only carbon dioxide to formate among the three types of carbonate species, carbon dioxide, bicarbonate and carbonate for the first time.
The design of CNTs@Ni1/3Co2/3(CO3)1/2(OH)·0.11H2O in situ compounded in the nanoscale for all-solid-state supercapacitors
Ni1/3Co2/3(CO3)1/2(OH)·0.11H2O (NCC) was in situ constructed on the surface of CNTs, which realized the nanoscale recombination of NCC and CNTs.
Effect of 4-biphenyl groups on the charge transport and photovoltaic properties of arylamine based push–pull systems
The synthesis of two N,N-bis(4-biphenylyl)aniline (BPA) based push–pull is reported herein. Evaluation as donor materials in all-small-molecule planar-heterojunction organic solar cells lead to impressive fill factor (>73%) and promising power conversion efficiencies.
Improved photoremoval performance of boron carbon nitride–pyromellitic dianhydride composite toward tetracycline and Cr(VI) by itself to change the solution pH
A series of boron carbon nitride–pyromellitic dianhydride (BCNPA) composites were successfully synthesized for the first time, where BCNPA3 exhibited the best adsorption and photodegradation performances for tetracycline (TC) under visible-light irradiation.
One step conversion of 1,5-bis(dimethylamino)naphthalene to salts of “back to back” bis-acridine derivatives
1,5-Bis(dimethylamino)naphthalene can be oxidized directly to a dication or a cation derived from an acridino-acridine, the former stabilised by two dimethyliminium substituents, while the latter has a dimethylated nitrogen in the ring system.
Acylselenoureato bis(chelates) of lead: synthesis, structural characterization and microwave-assisted formation of PbSe nano- and microstructures
Three lead(II) bis(acylselenoureato) complexes were prepared by reaction of the respective acylselenourea compounds with Pb(OAc)2. One of these lead complexes was converted into PbSe nano- and microstructures by microwave-assisted synthesis.
Synthesis and photophysics of new pyridyl end-capped 3D-dithia[3.3]paracyclophane-based Janus tectons: surface-confined self-assembly of their model pedestal on HOPG
Once synthesized, these new tectons demonstrated both ionic and coordination bonding. Surprisingly, P forms a quasi-square self-assembly independently of the underlying HOPG lattice.
One-dimensional lanthanide coordination polymers supported by pentadentate Schiff-base and diphenyl phosphate ligands: single molecule magnet behavior and photoluminescence
Four one-dimensional lanthanide coordination polymers constructed from Ln2 dimers showing single molecule magnet behavior and photoluminescence are reported.
A rare-earth-free self-activated phosphor: Li2TiSiO5 with TiO5 square pyramids
Li2TiSiO5 shows a broad emission band covering the visible region due to the coexistence of TiO5 and TiO6 polyhedra.
Synergistic activity of binary metal sulphide WS2–RuS2 nanospheres for the electrochemical detection of the antipsychotic drug promazine
Schematic presentation for the synthesis of tungsten disulfide–ruthenium disulfide (WS2–RuS2) nanospheres and application for the electrochemical determination of antipsychotic drug promazine.
Constructing BaLi2Ti6O14@C nanofibers with a low carbon content as high-performance anode materials for Li-ion batteries
In this work, BaLi2Ti6O14 nanofibers coated by a thin carbon layer were rationally designed and synthesized by a controlled electrospinning process and a simple annealing process.
Exploring the electrocatalytic application of two-dimensional samarium molybdate (γ-Sm3(MoO4)3) nanoplatelets for the selective sensing of the organophosphate insecticide oxyparathion
Novel samarium molybdate structures were synthesized through a simple ultrasonic method and exhibited excellent electrocatalytic activity toward oxyparathion.
Mastering bioactive coatings of metal oxide nanoparticles and surfaces through phosphonate dendrons
Dendritic phosphonates are versatile coatings of several nanomaterials for health applications ranging from implants to nanoparticles and microbubbles.
DNA logic circuits based on FokI enzyme regulation
A series of DNA logic devices was constructed based on the allosteric strategy of the enzyme-assisted cleavage regulation system, which are simple in scale, modular, and work efficiently.
