Secondary amides are a class of highly stable compounds serving as versatile starting materials, intermediates and directing groups (amido groups) in organic synthesis. The direct deacylation of secondary amides to release amines is an important transformation in organic synthesis. Here, we report a protocol for the deacylation of secondary amides and isolation of amines. The method is based on the activation of amides with Tf2O, followed by addition of organocerium reagents, and acidic work-up. The reaction proceeded under mild conditions and afforded the corresponding amines, isolated as their hydrochloride salts, in good yields. In combination with the C-H activation functionalization methodology, the method is applicable to the functionalization of aniline as well as conversion of carboxylic derivatives to functionalized ketones.

Using the hydrothermal reactions of Mn(II) and Ba(II) salts with 2-(3-hydroxylphenyl)-1H-imidazole-4,5-dicarboxylic acid (m-OHPhH3IDC), two novel metal-organic frameworks, namely, {[Mn(m-OHPhHIDC)(H2O)]·2H2O}n (1) and {[Ba(m-OHPhH2IDC)2(H2O)3] ·2H2O}n (2) have been synthesized and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray crystallography, elemental analyses, and IR spectroscopy. Complex 1 features a novel non-interpenetrated three-dimensional (3,4)-connected network with one-dimensional open channels. Complex 2 exhibits a two-dimensional layered structure with rhombic grids. The role of the central metals in the formation of final architectures has been discussed. Furthermore, luminescent and thermal properties of the two complexes have been studied.

A green regioselective synthesis of some new and known 9-aryl-5,9-dihydropyrimido[4,5-d][1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine-6,8(4H,7H)-diones has been described via the microwave-assisted one-pot reaction of 3-amino-1H-1,2,4-triazoles, aromatic aldehydes and barbituric acids under solvent- and catalyst-free conditions. This operationally simple procedure is less laborious and provides a better scope than previously reported procedures.

In this work, a novel kind of particulate capillary precolumns with double-end polymer monolithic frits has been developed. Firstly, the polymer monolithic frit at one end was prepared via photo-initiated polymerization of a mixture of lauryl methacrylate and ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate with 1-propanol and 1,4-butanediol as porogens and 2,2-dimethoxy-2-phenylacetophenone as a photo-initiator in UV transparent coating capillary (100 μm i.d.). Subsequently, C18 particles (5 μm, 100Å) were packed into the capillary, and sealed with the polymer monolithic frit at another end. To prevent the reaction of monomers and C18 particles, the packed C18 particles were masked during UV exposure. The loading capacity of such a precolumn was determined to be about 9 μg by frontal analysis with a synthetic peptide APGDRIYVHPF as amodel sample. Furthermore, two parallel precolumns were incorporated into a two-dimensional nano-liquid chromatography (2D nano-LC) system with dual capillary trap columns for peptide trapping and concentration. Compared to 2D nano-LC system with a single trap column, such two dimensional separations could be operated simultaneously to improve the analysis throughput. All these results demonstrated that such capillary precolumns with double frits would be promising for high-throughput proteome analysis.

An on-line solid phase extraction-high performance liquid chromatography-tandemmass spectrometry method for the analysis of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in water samples was developed. The optimal analytical conditions were obtained through the optimization of the extraction efficiency of online solid phase extraction column, sample loading rate and loading volume, and the concentration of ammonium acetate in mobile phase. Under the optimal condition, the analytical method displayed good linearity (r2 > 0.99) for 12 PFASs (C5-C14 perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids and C6/C8 perfluoroalkyl sulfonic acids) over a concentration range of 0.5-100 ng/L. The limits of quantitation for samples were between 0.025 ng/L and 0.5 ng/L and the relative standard deviations (RSD) of five consecutive analyses were less than 10% for 1 ng/L standard solution. Satisfactory results were obtained using this analytical method for the analysis of perfluoroalkyl substances in Antarctic ice core samples. The recoveries of all perfluoroalkyl substances were in a range of 73%-117% when the sampleswere spiked with standards at the concentrations of 2.5 ng/L and 25 ng/L.

With different pyridine-analogs as auxiliary ligands, three novel Zn(II) complexes (1-3) based on 5-(1H-tetrazol-1-yl) isophthalic acid (H2L) have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analyses of complexes 1-3 show the presence of tetrazolyl group, as well as the coordination behavior of the auxiliary ligands as critical factors determining the structures of such Zn(II)-carboxylate coordination architectures. In addition, the resulting complexes all exhibit luminescence properties in the solid state at room temperature.

By reacting alkynylthiacalix[4]arenes with polyethylene glycol azido compounds, a series of novel thiacalix[4]arene 1,2,3-triazole-polyethylene glycol netty polymerswere conveniently prepared in good yields. Their structures and morphologies were studied by 1H NMR, IR, and elemental analysis and SEM images. On average, approximately 28-31 thiacalixarene units exist in each polymeric molecule. These novel polymers possess excellent adsorption ability for both cationic and anionic dyes. The saturation adsorption capacity for Congo red reached 1.3-1.4 mmol/g. They exhibit high and stable adsorption ability in the scope of pH 5-9, and maintain good properties in five cycles.

This paper describes the effect of the in situ hydrolysis of 2-cyanopyridine and its derivatives on the synthesis of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) from CO2 and methanol over CeO2. 2-Cyanopyridine, with the highest electronic charge number of the carbon in the cyanogroup, is the most effective agent to accelerate the desired reaction by a decrease of water. CeO2(110) planes are active for the hydrolysis of 2-cyanopyridine, further enhancing the DMC formation by in situ removal of water effectively. The DMC yield is improved drastically up to 378.5 mmol g cat-1 from 12.8 mmol g cat-1 with the in situ hydrolysis of 2-cyanopyridine over rod-CeO2(110) catalyst.

Catalyst supports have very important effects on catalyst performance. A novel expanded multilayered vermiculite (EML-VMT) is successfully used as the catalyst support for the acetylene hydrochlorination. By mixing carbon on the surface of EML-VMT (i.e., EML-VMT-C), the HgCl2/EML-VMT-C achieved a high acetylene conversion of 97.3%, a vinyl chloride selectivity of 100% and a turn over frequency (TOF) value of 8.83×10-3 s-1 at a temperature of 140℃, an acetylene gas hourly space velocity (GHSV) of 108 h-1, and a feed volume ratio V(HCl)/V(C2H2) of 1.15. Moreover, the HgCl2/EML-VMT-C shows good stability. The EML-VMT also shows potential in the preparation of other EML-VMT-supported catalysts.

We present simulations of the mechanism of secondary nucleation of polymer crystallization, based on a new model accounting for the microscopic kinetics of attaching and detaching. As the key feature of the model, we introduced multibody-interaction parameters that establish correlations between the attaching and detaching rate constants and the resulting thickness and width of the crystalline lamella. Using MATLAB and Monte Carlomethod, we followed the evolution of the secondary nuclei as a function of various multibody-interaction parameters. We identified three different growth progressions of the crystal:(i) Widening, (ii) thickening and (iii) simultaneously thickening and widening of lamellar crystals, controlled by the corresponding kinetic parameters.

In this work, the natural nanozeolite clinoptilolite (Nano CP) was successfully functionalized by propylsulfonic acid and applied as efficient heterogeneous catalyst for the synthesis of quinoxaline derivatives in aqueous media. The nanocatalyst was characterized by various techniques such as CHN, XRD, FT-IR, BET, TGA/DTA, SEM, TEM and TEM-EDS. The results show its applicability as green, reusable and promising catalyst in organic synthesis. It was found that the nanocatalysts could be recycled and reused eight times without significant loss of catalytic activities.

KBr or NaCl is found to be a good catalyst in Se-Se bond cleavage of diselenides in the present of the oxidant mCPBA. The electrophilic addition of the in situ generated reactive electrophilic selenium species PhSeX (X=Br, Cl) to alkenes in AcOH provides a convenient access to 2-acetoxy-1-selenides. Compared with other catalysts, KBr or NaCl is less expensive and more environment-friendly.

A series of aminoalkyl phosphates (AAP-n, with carbon number n ranging from 2 to 6) are used as surface modifiers to prepare hydroxyapatite hydrocolloids. The resulting nanoparticles (Cn-HA) possess a coreshell structure where an ionized layer of calcium-(AAP-n) complex [+H3N-(CH2)n-OPO3Ca] encapsulates each hydroxyapatite core. Long-term colloidal stability is achieved due to the electrostatic repulsion among the suspending particles. The incorporation of AAP-n results in a preferential crystal growth along c-axis, showing an increasing aspect ratio of particles from C2-HA to C6-HA. Preliminary cell culture using osteoblast-like MG63 cells shows no cytotoxicity associated with the as-prepared Cn-HA particles. The functional amino groups around the nanoparticles could be used to graft various organic chains to prepare homogeneous HA/polymer composites as bone grafting materials.

Novel magnetic Fe3O4@C@MgAl-layered double-hydroxide (LDH) nanoparticles have been successfully prepared by the chemical self-assembly methods. The properties of surface functional groups, crystal structure, magnetism and surface morphology of magnetic nanoparticles were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermal gravity-differential thermal gravity (TG-DTG), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The adsorption studies of the novel adsorbent in removing heavy metals Cr (VI) from waste water showed that the maximum absorption amount of Cr(VI) was 152.0 mg/g at 40℃ and pH 6.0. The excellent adsorption capacity of the Fe3O4@C@MgAl-LDH nano-absorbents plus their easy separation, environmentally friendly composition and reusability makes them more suitable adsorbents for the removal of metal ions from waste water.

Three-dimensional flower-like nanomaterials have wide application due to the large specific surface area. In this letter, the morphology of octadecylamine (ODA) from several common solvents is studied and it is found that from the chloroform and acetone solution, ODA assembles into petal-like structure, which further forms the spherical or flower-like architecture. Furthermore, the composite materials incorporated reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and ODA could well keep the flower-shaped structure of ODA. XRD results show that the introduction of graphene has little influence on the structure of ODA and contact angle test indicates good hydrophobic performance of the rGO/ODA material.

The construction, performance characteristics and application of a new bismuth(III) PVC membrane electrode based on 5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-4-amino-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiol are reported in this paper. The designed sensor exhibited a Nernstian response for Bi3+ ion ranging from 5.0×10-7 mol/L to 1.0×10-2 mol/L with a slope of 19.8 mV/decade. The operational pH range of the sensor is 3.0-6.0. The electrode shows a response time of 6 s and can be used for at least five weeks without any considerable divergence in potentials. It exhibits very good selectivity relative to a wide variety of alkali, alkaline earth, transition and heavy metal ions. The proposed electrode could be used as an indicator electrode in potentiometric titration of Bi3+ ions with EDTA and in the determination of Bi3+ content in stomach medicine.

Cu/SiO2 catalysts prepared by differentmethods have been investigated focusing on the influence of Cu+ on the catalytic performance. The composition, structure and copper valence state were characterized by means of BET, XRD, XPS, FTIR, N2O-titration. It was found that the Cu/SiO2 prepared by ammoniaevaporation (AE) method had much higher TOF value than that prepared by wetness-impregnation (WI) with the same THF selectivity. The higher TOF value was attributed to the coexistence of Cu+ and Cu0 species in the activated AE-Cu/SiO2, while only Cu0 species existing in the activated WI-Cu/SiO2. Researches suggest that Cu+ can adsorb and polarize the C=O bond of DMM. It is concluded that Cu0 could be the main active site and the synergistic effect between Cu0 and Cu+ could contribute to hydrogenation of DMM to THF.

The layer-by-layer assembly of graphene oxide and diazoresin is carried out via the electrostatic and hydrogen bond interactions on planar substrates and colloidal templates. The successful planar and spherical growth of multilayer could be investigated by UV-vis spectrophotometry and scanning electron microscopy, respectively. Subsequent UV irradiation or heating would convert the ionic bonds and hydrogen bonds to covalent bands, which significantly improves the stability of the multilayer composite against solvent etching. For the cross-linked core-shell composites, the template cores could be removed by dissolution and hollow microspheres are obtained.

Several metal-based ionic liquids (ILs) were synthesized and used as extractants for the desulfurization of dibenzothiophene (DBT) in simulated fuel oil. The effects of several anion and metal ions, n(ILs)/n(metal) as mole ratio, VIL/Voil and extractive times on the removal ratio of DBT were investigated in detail. The results showed that [BMIM]HSO4/FeCl3(BMIM was short for 1-butyl-3-methyl imidazole) was superior to the other ILs for the extractive desulfurization. A total of 100% of DBT was removed at room temperature in 5 min with V[BMIM]HSO4=FeCl3=Voil=1:1. The extractive activity of [BMIM]HSO4/FeCl3 IL did not change almost after five runs. Extractive desulfurization of different sulfur compounds and commercial diesel fuel oil were also examined. The removal ratios of the sulfur compounds as the reaction substrates were all over 90% and the sulfur content of commercial diesel oil decreased to 120 ppm from 12,400 ppm.

Monosized nanoparticles of 57.3 nm were prepared by cationic emulsion polymerization using a polymerizable emulsifier DMHB. The adsorption of nanoparticles onto bamboo fibers was measured by conductometric titration. The results indicated that the adsorption capacity increased with increasing contact time until 120 min. The equilibrium data for nanoparticles adsorption onto bamboo fibers were well fitted to the Langmuir equation. Moreover, the monolayer adsorption capacity of nanoparticles in the concentration range (from 0.03 g/L to 0.6 g/L) studied, as calculated from Langmuir isotherm model at 25℃, was found to be 38.61 mg/g of fibers. The SEM images showed that the nanoparticles form a uniform monolayer on bamboo fiber surfaces.

Designing molecular logic gates to operate programmably for molecular diagnostics in molecular computing still remains challenging. Here, we designed a novel linear DNA logic gates for microRNA analysis based on strand displacement and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET). Two labeled strands closed each other produce to FRET through hybridization with a complementary strand to form a basic work unit of logic gate. Two indicators of heart failure (microRNA-195 and microRNA-21) were selected as the logic inputs and the fluorescence mode was used as the logic output. We have demonstrated that the molecular logic gate mechanism worked well with the construction of YES and AND gates.

2-(Hydrazinecarbothioyl)-N-substituted hydrazinecarbothioamides react with 2,3,5,6-tetrachloro-1,4-benzoquinone in high yields in a novel fast and facile method to give 5-unsubstituted-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-amine derivatives. The synthesized compounds were characterized by spectroscopic methods and confirmed by using X-ray crystallography. A rationale for the formation of the products is presented.

Di-bariummagnesium silicate phosphors doped with europiumand dysprosium were prepared under a weak reducing atmosphere. X-ray diffraction pattern of the sample was also done that confirmed the proper preparation of the phosphor. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) images confirmed that the sample has regular surface and uniform grain size distribution. Comparative studies of phosphorescence decay of Ba2MgSi2O7:Eu2+, Dy3+ phosphors with different concentration of Dy3+ were done. The phosphor with 0.5/1.5 mol% of Eu/Dy, exhibited optimum green color afterglow properties. This emission is expected to arise due to transition of Eu2+ ions from any of the sublevels of 4f65d1 configuration to 8S7/2 level of the 4f7 configuration. For a suitable trap depth, the trap concentration is expected to be proportional to the concentration of Dy3+. These traps are responsible for holding the charge career for a reasonable time, subsequently for increasing the time of afterglow. Hence, optimum Dy3+ concentration produces the longer afterglow duration with higher intensity of luminescence signals. Trap depth were also calculated using thermoluminescence glow curve which was indicative of formation of traps suitable for long afterglow.

Effects of nano-ceramic filler titanium oxide (TiO2) have been investigated on the ionic conductance of polymeric complexes consisting of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC)/poly(ethyl methacrylate) (PEMA), and lithium perchlorate (LiClO4). The composite polymer blend electrolytes were prepared by solvent casting technique. The TiO2 nanofillers were homogeneously dispersed in the polymer electrolyte matrix and exhibited excellent interconnection with PVC/PEMA/PC/LiClO4 polymer electrolyte. The addition of TiO2 nanofillers improved the ionic conductivity of the polymer electrolyte to some extent when the content of TiO2 is 15 wt%. The addition of TiO2 also enhanced the thermal stability of the electrolyte. The changes in the structural and complex formation properties of the materials are studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) techniques. The scanning electronmicroscope image of nano-composite polymer electrolyte membrane confirms that the TiO2 nanoparticles were distributed uniformly in the polymer matrix.
