Characteristic of Fura-2-Ca2+ interaction was studied based on the fluorescence technique. The apparent dissociation constants (Kd) of the Fura-2-Ca2+ complex were determined at different temperature. The effect of cefotaxime (CEFA) on intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) was discussed by using a ratiometric fluorescence dye Fura-2 as a probe. The basal [Ca2+]i in resting human peripheral lymphocytes was 100±7 nmol/L but after treatment with cefotaxime, the changes of [Ca2+]i were observed in different conditions. In the concentration range of 1-30 μmol/L of cefotaxime [Ca2+]i increased, as a result of releasing intracellular Ca2+ stores. Higher concentration of cefotaxime (50-500 μmol/L) stimulated to decrease of [Ca2+]i.

Spectrophotometric method has been developed for the direct quantitative determination of captopril in pharmaceutical preparation and biological fluids (human plasma and urine) samples. The method was accomplished based on parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) and partial least squares (PLS). The study was carried out in the pH range from 2.0 to 12.8 and with a concentration from 0.70 to 61.50 μg mL-1 of captopril. Multivariate calibration models such as PLS at various pH and PARAFAC were elaborated from ultraviolet spectra deconvolution and captopril determination. The best models for this system were obtained with PARAFAC and PLS at pH 2.0. The applications of the method for determination of real samples were evaluated by analysis of captopril in pharmaceutical preparations and biological fluids with satisfactory results. The accuracy of the method, evaluated through the RMSEP, was 0.5801 for captopril with best calibration curve by PARAFAC and 0.6168 for captopril with PLS at pH 2.0 model.

For the purpose of developing organic photovoltaic devices with good performance characteristics, we have fabricated two devices using 4T-CHO, 5T-CHO and PTCDA. The ITO/4T-CHO/PTCDA/A1 device has a Voc of 2.45 V and photoelectric conversion efficiency of 2.76%. The ITO/5T-CHO/PTCDA/Al device has a Voc of 2.1 3V and photoelectric conversion efficiency of 2.90%. The two devices have higher Voc (2.45 and 2.13 V). It is possible that intermolecular hydrogen bonding between -CHO group of nT-CHO and carboxylic dianhydride of PTCDA contribute to enhance the efficiency by promoting interfacial electron transfer and eliminating the subconducting band trap sites.

The pyrolysis of biomass is a promising way for production of bio-gasoline if the stability and quality problems of the bio-crudeoil can be solved by catalytic cracking and reforming. In this paper, an on-line infrared spectrum was used to study the characteristics of catalytic pyrolysis with the following preliminary results. The removal of C=O of organic acid is more difficult than that of aldehydes and ketones. HUSY/γ-Al2O3 and REY/γ-Al2O3 catalysts exhibited better deoxygenating activities while HZSM-5/γ-Al2O3 catalyst exhibited preferred selectivities for production of iso-alkanes and aromatics. Finally, possible mechanisms of biomass catalytic pyrolysis are discussed as well.

A rapid and sensitive method for the analysis of three catecholamines by capillary electrophoresis (CE) with direct chemiluminescence (CL) detection is described. The detection limits (S/N=3) were 1.3×10-8 g/mL for isoprenaline,1.0×10-8 g/mL for epinephrine and 2.8×10-8 g/mL for dopamine. The proposed method was successfully applied to the analysis of catecholamines in urine samples of cigarette smokers and nonsmokers. The results showed that there is a close relation between the release of dopamine in human body fluids and cigarette smoking/nonsmoking.

Novel NaA/carbon nanocomposite thin films were successfully prepared on a porous α-Al2O3 substrate by incorporating nanosized NaA zeolite into novolak-type phenolic resin. The prepared films were characterized by XRD, SEM and single gas permeation tests. The NaA zeolite/carbon nanocomposite thin films exhibited that the ideal separation factor of CO2/CH4 was 28.4and the carbon dioxide flux was 3.39×10-7 mol/(Pa m2 s) at room temperature and under a pressure difference of 100 kPa, which was two orders of magnitude higher than that of pure carbon membrane prepared at the same procedures and conditions as those of composite films. From the SEM images, the films were continuous and highly intergrown. Compared with carbon membranes, the thickness of nanocomposite films was drastically decreased, which was helpful to reduce the diffusion resistance and increase the flux of gas permeance.

Carbon encapsulated magnetic nanoparticles (CEMNs) were synthesized by heating an aqueous glucose solution containing Fe-Au (Au coated Fe nanoparticles) nanoparticles at 160-180℃ for 2 h. This novel hydrothermal approach is not only simple but also provides the surface of CEMNs with functional groups like -OH. The formation of carbon encapsulated magnetic nanoparticles was not favored when using pure Fe nanoparticles as cores because of the oxidation of Fe nanoparticles by H2O during the reaction and,therefore, the surfaces of the naked Fe nanoparticles had to be coated by Au shell in advance. TEM, XRD, XPS and VSM measurments characterized that they were uniform carbon spheres containing some embedded Fe-Au nanoparticles, with a saturation of 14.6 emu/g and the size of the typical product is~350 nm.

The Gd(OH)3 nanorods with diameters of ca. 40-60 nm and lengths of more than 400-550 nm have been prepared by a novel hydrothermal technique. The structural features and chemical composition of the nanorods were investigated by X-ray diffraction(XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), selected area electron diffraction (SAED), and high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). The possible mechanism for the formation of Gd(OH)3 nanorods was proposed.

Non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) is a technique for dimensionality reduction by placing non-negativity constraints on the matrix. Based on the PARAFAC model, NMF was extended for three-dimension data decomposition. The three-dimension nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF3) algorithm, which was concise and easy to implement, was given in this paper. The NMF3 algorithm implementation was based on elements but not on vectors. It could decompose a data array directly without unfolding,which was not similar to that the traditional algorithms do. It has been applied to the simulated data array decomposition and obtained reasonable results. It showed that NMF3 could be introduced for curve resolution in chemometrics.
