Abstract:
This paper proposes the use of novel surfactant additives for the separation of organic acids by ion-pair chromatography and studies the influences of surfactants on the chromatographic separation behaviors.Researches have been carried out on both silica gel matrix and polymer supporters in order to compare the two ordinary kinds of stationary phases,and the phenomenon is similar.Separation is based on differences in the stabilities of analyte-additive complexes in solution.Retention times of analytes can be varied over a large range by varying the additive concentration.The results indicate that the additives of proper concentrations can reduce the retention times of different organic acids while the resolution remains the same.The larger the molecular weight is,the greater the shift of the retention time is.This greatly expands the scope of macromolecular polar compounds that can be separated by ion-pair chromatography with the advantages of retention times being greatly reduced.

Abstract:
Cyanide ion was studied as an effector of Jack bean urease(JBU)at 300 K in 30 mmol/L Tris buffer,pH 7 by isothermal titration calorimetry(ITC).The simple novel model was used for CN-+JBU interaction over the whole range of CN-concentrations.The binding parameters recovered from the simple novel model were attributed to the cyanide ion interaction.It was found that cyanide ion acted as a noncooperative inhibitor of JBU,and there is a set of 12 identical and independent binding sites for CN-ions.The dissociation equilibrium constant is 750 μmol/L.The molar enthalpy of binding is △H=-13.6 kJ mol-1.The technique used provided an accurate and quick assessment of the effectiveness of the compounds to inhibit Jack bean urease.

Abstract:
The amino acid at the 119th position of human basic fibroblast growth factor(hbFGF),lysine(K119),is a critical component for its mitogenic activity.However,little is known about the effects of the characteristics of this residue including charge on the mitogenic activity of hbFGE Herein,this basic residue was replaced with neutral glutamine residue and acidic glutamic acid residue to construct mutants hbFGFK119Q and hbFGFK119E,respectively.The mutants were produced by BL21(DE3)/pET3c expression system and purified to homogeneity by ionic exchange and heparin affinity chromatography from the supernatant of bacteria lysate.The mitogenic activity analysis showed that neutralization of charge at the 119th residue diminished the mitogenic activity of hbFGE whereas change of positive charge to negative charge at this residue had no significant effect on its mitogenic activity.Further MAP kinase activation assay revealed that the influence of different charge at the 119th position on the mitogenic activity of hbFGF was related to the signal molecular activation in MAPK pathway.It was deduced that the charge,either positive or negative,at the 119th position of hbFGF is crucial for its full mitogenic activity.

Abstract:
The photoisomerization abilities of secondary thioxopeptide bond(CS-NH)and thioxo prolyl bond(CS-N)incorporated into the C-terminal pentapeptide of insect kinin were compared.H-Phe-Phe-Ψ[CS-NH]-D-Ala-Trp-Gly-NHz and H-Phe-Tyr-Ψ[CS-N]-Pro-Trp-Gly-NH2 were studied by UV-vis absorption.The isomerization energy barriers of the two segments,Ac-Phe-Ψ[CS-NH]-D-Ala-NH2 and Ac-Tyr-Ψ[CS-N]-Pro-NH2 picked from the two peptides,were calculated using ab initio method.The cis isomer of CS-N is more stable than that of CS-NH due to higher energy barrier,so the former is more suitable in peptide structure-activity relationship studies.

Abstract:
In this work,by a combination of controlled ring-opening polymerization(CROP)and click reaction,we reported a facile and useful method to synthesize linear poly(ε-caprolactone)at attapulgite nanocomposites with well-defined structures.For this,first,the chlorine terminated attapulgite was prepared by the self-assembly of 3-chloropropyltrimethoxysilane from the surfaces of attapulgite.And then,the terminal chlorines of modified attapulgite were substituted with azido groups.As the second step,linear propargyl-terminated poly(ε-caprolactone)(PCLs)with different molecular weights were synthesized by the CROP of ε-CL monomer in toluene with Sn(Oct)2 as a catalyst and propargyl alcohol as an initiator.Finally,the azido-terminated attapulgites were reacted with propargyl-terminated PCLs via the click reactions.

Abstract:
A unique ionic hybrid material[C6H12N5O]3[(PO4)W12O36]·5H2O has been synthesized from the reaction of((1H-tetrazole-5-yl)morphline and α-H3 [(PO4)W12O36]·21H2O.It has successfully been charactrized by elemental analysis.IR and 1HNMR spectroscopies,TGA and single-crystal X-ray diffraction method.Thetitle compound is constructed from the three [C6H12N5O]+cations and α-Keggin[(PO4)W12O36]3-polyoxoanion.The most remarkable structural feature of this hybrid can be described as two-dimensional inorganic infinite plane-like(2D/∞[(PO4)W12O36]3-)which forming via van der Waais interactions along the x axis.
