Abstract:
A series of novel bis(trifluoroethyl) phosphonomethyl ether derivatives of acyclovir was synthesized and their in vitro anti-HBV activity was evaluated in HepG2 2.2.15 cells. In contrast to acyclovir, most of the described phosphonates emerged as potent inhibitors of HBV replication. Especially, the most active compound 11 with IC50 value of 2.92 mmol/L was 33 times more potent than acyclovir with IC50 value of 100 mmol/L.

Abstract:
Composite polymer electrolytes based on mixing soft-segment waterborne polyurethane (WPU) and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis[(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl]imide (BMImTFSI) have been prepared and characterized. The addition of BMImTFSI results in an increase of the ionic conductivity. At high BMImTFSI concentration (BMImTFSI/WPU=3 in weight ratio), the ionic conductivity reaches 4.27×10-3 S/cm at 30℃. These composite polymer electrolytes exhibit good thermal and electrochemical stability, which are high enough to be applied in lithium batteries.

Abstract:
The photopromoted carbonylation of bromobenzene with carbon monoxide catalyzed by inexpensive commercially available cobalt salts[Co(OAc)2, CoCl2] was carried out under ambient conditions. The results revealed that methyl benzoate was produced in the presence of basic additives (CH3ONa, NaOAc or (n-C4H9)3N). The catalytic activity of Co(OAc)2 was higher than that of CoCl2. Furthermore, the activity of the carbonylation was greatly improved by addition of acetophenone, e.g. both the yield and selectivity of the ester were increased from 47% to 91% with Co(OAc)2 as catalyst and CH3ONa as additive, while the yield of byproduct benzene from hydrodehalogenation of bromobenzene decreased from 32% to 8%.

Abstract:
In this paper, a series of chiral non-symmetrical liquid crystals (nBA-chol) consisting of a cholesteryl ester moiety as chiral entity and a biphenyl aromatic core with different terminal alkyl chain has been synthesized and investigated for their liquid crystalline properties. Effects of numbers of methylene units in the terminal alkyl chain on the phase transition temperatures and on the temperature-dependent pitch lengths of the chiral liquid crystals have been studied. The long terminal alkyl chain tends to exhibit smectic A mesophases. The pitch lengths of the cholesteric mesophases of the chiral liquid crystals decrease with increasing temperature and with increasing numbers of methylene units in the terminal alkyl chain, respectively.

Abstract:
Methane gas sensor was fabricated based on electrocatalytic properties of the Pd/MWNT nanocomposites on indium tin oxide (ITO) glass substrates. A linear response for methane was obtained in the range of 0-16% (v/v) with a detection limit of 0.167% (v/v) and R.S.D. of 4.1%. After 100 times sensing or stable stored more than 12 months in atmosphere, unconspicuous measurable decrease was observed. The response time was less than 60 s at room temperature and ambient pressure. Some common potential interferents in samples such as N2, CO, CO2, ethane, propane, pentane, methanol, ethanol, H2 and NH3 were investigated and all the effects were less than 5% on the response for 3.0% (v/v) methane. The sensor was applied to methane determinations in man-made gas samples, the results are satisfied.

[Abstract](174) [FullText HTML] [PDF 252KB](0)
Abstract:
Benzoic acid (BA), methylparaben (MP), propylparaben (PP) and sorbic acid (SA) are food preservatives, and they have well defined UV spectra. However, their spectra overlap seriously, and it is difficult to determine them individually from their mixtures without preseparation. In this paper, seven different chemometric approaches were applied to resolve the overlapping spectra and to determine these compounds simultaneously. With respect to the criteria of% relative prediction error (RPE) and% recovery,principal component regression (PCR) and radial basis function-artificial neural network (RBF-ANN) were the preferred methods.These two methods were successfully applied to the analysis of some commercial samples.

Abstract:
A novel axially substituted silicon(IV) phthalocyanine, namely di-pyridyloxy axially substituted silicon(IV) phthalocyanine 2 was synthesized and characterized by UV/vis, IR, elemental analysis, MS as well as 1H NMR spectroscopy. Hydrophobic 2 was encapsulated by amphiphilic triblock copolymer poly[Nε-(benzyloxycarbonyl-lysine]-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly[Nε-(benzyl oxycarbonyl) (PLL(Z)-b-PEG-b-PLL(Z)) to form hydrophobic 2-loaded polymeric complex micelle (PIC) (2-loaded PIC). Atom force microscopy (AFM) image showed that 2-loaded PIC formed a spherical nanocarrier with approximately 35-50 nm in diameter. The fluorescence intensity and lifetime of 2-loaded PIC was significantly enhanced by the incorporation 2 into PIC nanocarrier.
