Two novel mononaphthalimide homospermidine derivatives (2a, 2b) with three or four methylene unit as linkages weresynthesized and evaluated for cytotoxicity against human leukemia K562, murine melanoma B 16 and Chinese hamster ovary CHOcell lines. The presence of homospermidine motif could greatly elevate the potency of 1,8-naphthalimide. Conjugate 2b with longerspacer exhibited higher in vitro cytotoxicity than 2a. The DNA binding experiments indicated that conjugates 2b could bind toherring sperm DNA. The topoisomerase Ⅱ poison trials revealed that 2b could inhibit the activity of top. Ⅱ.

Photopromoted carbonylation of 1-bromo-6-chlorohexane with CO catalyzed by CuBr2 and CdI2 has been carried out underambient conditions. The results indicate that the carbonylation proceeds with the major product of chlorocsterCICH2(CH2)5COOCH3 under catalysis of CuBr2. Furthermore, the activity of the carbonylation can be improved by additionof basic additives (NaOAc, Na3PO4 or (n-C4H9)3N). Among these additives, (n-C4H9)3N is the most efficient in terms of the yield ofClCH2(CH2)5COOCH3. However, the methoxycarbonyl substituting chlorine product of BrCH2(CH2)5COOCH3 is not obtained inthe presence of CdI2. This is quite different from the carbonylation of monochloroalkane.

A new method was developed for the determination of cefradine by extraction-flotation of CuSCN. The experiment indicatedthat in the presence of 0.20 mol/L NaOH the degradation of cefradine took place in water bath at 100℃. The thiol group (-SH) ofthe degradation product could reduce Cu(Ⅱ) to Cu(Ⅰ) for the formation of the emulsion CuSCN in the presence of NH4SCN at pH4.0. By determining the residual amount of Cu(Ⅱ) in the solution and calculating the flotation yield of Cu(Ⅱ), the indirectdetermination of cefradine can be obtained. This method has been applied to determine cefradine in capsules, human serum andurine samples, respectively.

Ambient volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were sampled at six sites in Beijing in the summer of 2004 and analyzed byGCMS. The chemical reactivities of 73 quantified VOCs species were evaluated by OH loss rates (LOH) and ozone formationpotentials (OFPs). Top 15 reactive species, mainly alkenes and aromatics, were identified by these two methods, and accounted formore than 70% of total reactivity of VOCs. In urban areas, isoprene was the most reactive species in term of OH loss rate,contributing 11.4% to the LOH of VOCs. While toluene, accounting for 9.4% of OFPs, appeared to have a long-time role in thephotochemical processes. Tongzhou site is obviously influenced by local chemical industry, but the other five sites showed typicalurban features influenced mainly by vehicular emissions.

In pH 5.5 phosphate buffer solution, N-n-undecyl-N'-(sodium-p-amino-benzenesulfonate) thiourea (UPT) produced a pair ofredox peaks on the bare glassy carbon electrode. At the multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWNT) modified electrode, theelectrochemical behavior of UPT enhanced greatly. In the presence of bovine serum albumin (BSA), the peak currents ofUPT decreased linearly due to the formation of a super-molecular complex. This method was successfully applied to thedetermination of BSA in a bovine serum sample.

We report the structural characterization and proposed formation mechanism of honeycomb-like ZnO conglomerationsfabricated by direct precipitation method. X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy-disperse X-ray spectrometry (EDS), scanning electronmicroscopy (SEM) showed that the as-prepared ZnO calcined at 700℃ were micron sphere particles with honeycomb-likestructure. In the UV-vis absorbing spectrum, it was observed that there is a new additional absorption band at 260 nm, and it wasspeculated that the absorption may be caused by defects on the surface and interface of honeycomb-like ZnO. The as-productsshowed high sensitivity and short response time to sulfured hydrogen gas. These results demonstrate that honeycomb-like ZnOconglomerations are very promising materials for fabricating H2S gas sensors.

Aqueous phase layer around bubble and water droplet are two additional processes in solvent sublation. In the dynamic processof mass transfer, they are always neglected, but they are very important in the investigation of thermodynamic equilibrium. In thispaper, the effect of water droplet in solvent sublation was discussed in detail, and the previous mathematical model of solventsubaltion was improved. Matlab 6.5 was used to simulate the process of water droplets, and the comparison between the previoushypothesis and the improvement in this paper showed the superiority, especially in the investigation of thermodynamic equilibrium.Moreover, the separation and concentration of the complex compound dithizone-Co(Ⅱ) from aqueous phase to n-octanol by solventsublation also proved the improved mathematical model was reasonable.

A three-dimensional global potential energy surface for the electronic ground state of HXeBr molecule is constructed from morethan 4200 ab initio points. These points are generated using an internally contracted multi-reference configuration interactionmethod with the Davidson correction (icMRCI+Q) and large basis sets. The stabilities and dissociation barriers are identified fromthe potential energy surfaces. The three-body dissociation channel is found to be the dominate dissociation channel for HXeBr.Based on the obtained potentials, low-lying vibrational energy levels of HXeBr calculated using the Lanczos algorithm is found tobe in good agreement with the available experimental band origins.
