MnO2 powders with micro/nano spheres and microrods for supercapacitors were synthesized via a simple, quick and low-temperature hydrothermal method. Their preparation process was optimized by orthorhombic test and single factor experiment. The crystalline structure, surface morphology and supercapacitive properties of the as-prepared MnO2 powders were studied by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and electrochemical measurement. Experimental results show that the optimal reaction conditions are the reaction temperature of 150°C, the KMnO4/MnCl2 molar ratio of 2.5: 1.0, the reaction time of 3 h, and the filling factor of 40%. Under the optimal conditions, the as-prepared MnO2 powders have typical α-MnO2 structure with hollow and porous micro/nano spheres and microrods. The α-MnO2 micro/nano sphere diameter is about from 0.2 to 0.8 μm, while the α-MnO2 microrods have the diameter of 30 nm and the length of 5 μm. The discharge specific capacitance of products at the 5th discharge cycle retains 255, 170, 133, 105 and 88 F·g-1 at current densities of 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 mA·g-1, respectively. Moreover, the values of equivalent series resistance and charge transfer resistance decrease to 0.37 Ω and 0.40 Ω, respectively.

In this paper, we report a novel label-free electrochemical aptasensor for detecting proteins in whole blood based on a three-component nanocomposite, in which ferriferrous oxide and three-dimensional graphene nanocomposite were modified with the plasma-polymerized 4-vinyl pyridine (Fe3O4@3D-rGO@PP4VP). In this novel sensing strategy, large amounts of amino groups in PP4VP facilitated the immobilization of aptamer strands via the strong electrostatic interaction between positively charged ammonium groups of the nanocomposites and negatively charged phosphate groups of aptamers. In the presence of thrombin, LYS (LYS), and platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB), the adsorbed aptamer strands on the developed nanocomposite surface caught the targeted proteins at the electrode interface. The aptamer preferred to be a barrier for electrons and inhibited electron transfer, leading to the decreased peak current of cyclic voltammetry measurements and the increased electron transfer resistance of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The determination of the thrombin, PDGF-BB, and LYS concentrations with this novel strategy showed low detection limits of 4.5, 29.4, and 14 pg·mL−1, and the analytical ranges extend from 0.01 to 50, 0.1 to 100, and 0.1 to 200 ng·mL−1, respectively. The resultant aptasensor exhibited high selectivity, acceptable reproducibility, and stability toward thrombin. The aptasensor could be used to detect thrombin in whole blood samples, thereby suggesting its possible application in clinical settings. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

This study focused on the synthesis of novel chiral Ag2S and Ag2S-Zn nanocrystals (NCs) with chiral Pen as a capping reagent in an aqueous solution. Luminescence studies indicated that all the prepared Ag2S and Ag2S-Zn NCs exhibited size-tunable photoluminescence (PL) emission at 500-700 nm. Compared with Ag2S, the PL emission of the Ag2S-Zn NCs could improve by around 2.4-fold. XRD peaks of the as-prepared Ag2S NCs were weak, whereas the XRD peaks of the Ag2S-Zn NCs had the characteristics of a monoclinic crystal structure. The circular dichroism (CD) test showed that the prepared NCs revealed a clear mirror-image relationship in their CD signals at 300-700 nm, and Zn2+ played a key role in the Cotton effect of the NCs. The chiral and fluorescent properties of these NCs are likely to find widespread applications in bioimaging, chemical and biosensing, and possibly in asymmetry catalysis. © the Partner Organisations 2014.

The microscopic structure of Pb-Ca alloys and Pb-Ca-Snx-Al alloys was observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The high temperature effect on corrosion behaviors and anode film Pb(?) of Pb-Ca alloys and Pb-Ca-Snx-Al alloys was studied using linear sweep voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectra (EIS) and AC voltammetry. It was found that the oxidation tendency of t-PbO to nonstoichiometric oxide PbOx and PbSO4 to ß-PbO2 may be increased at high temperature. With the increase of tin content, total corrosion and harm of corrosion can be reduced, the resistance of anode film decreased and the ions motion tendency enhanced. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.

Two isomorphic 3-D complexes with the formulas [M3(TPTA) (OH)2(H2O)4]n (M = Ni for 1 and Co for 2; H4TPTA = [1,1′:4′,1″-terphenyl]-2′,3,3″,5′-tetracarboxylic acid) have been synthesized and magnetically characterized. Complexes 1 (NiII) and 2 (CoII) have the same 1-D rod-shaped inorganic SBUs but exhibit significantly different magnetic properties. Complex 2(CoII) is a 3-D arrangement of a 1-D CoII single-chain magnet (SCM), while complex 1(NiII) exhibits weak coupling. © 2016 American Chemical Society.

Eighty eight tobacco samples from six provinces in China, of which the contents of rare earth elements (REEs) were determined by microwave digestion-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry method. A fuzzy clustering method, fuzzy cmeans (FCM), was used for classification of the different kinds of tobaccos based on their contents of REEs. The results show that FCM clustering analysis is a valid method for classification of tobaccos to some extent. The relationship between the contents of REEs in tobaccos and the geographical origins is also confirmed. ©2010 IEEE.

Four new lanthanide-carboxylate coordination polymers of the formula [Ln3L4(phen)4(H2O)4](ClO4)·2H2O, (Ln = Dy (1), Tb (2), Ho (3) and Er (4), L = 2,3-naphthalenedicarboxylate and phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) were solvothermally synthesized. Their structures as well as magnetic and photoluminescent properties were completely investigated. Complexes 1-4 are isostructural and exhibit 1D ribbon-like chains with envelope-like sixteen-membered rings. The DyIII and TbIII complexes show the corresponding characteristic luminescence in the visible region and the ErIII complex shows luminescence in the near-infrared region upon excitation with UV rays. Studies on the magnetic properties are reported. The Dy(III) analog complex 1 exhibits slow magnetic relaxation and could be a new example of a Dy(III) SMM (single molecule magnet). © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Poly(butyl methacrylate) (PBMA) colloidal crystal templates were assembled orderly on the clean substrates of monocrystalline silicon by dip-drawing technique and titanium dioxide (TiO 2) macroporous membranes were prepared by using sol-dipping template method to fill the interstices among the PBMA templates, followed by calcination to remove the templates at 550°C. Calcination of the PBMA templates was carried out according to the following procedure: the rate of rising temperature was 5°C/min from room temperature to 150°C, 2°C/min from 150°C to 270°C, 1°C /min from 270°C to 430°C, 2°C/min from 430°C to 550°C and maintained it at 550°C for 2h. X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectra indicated the macroporous materials were anatase structure. The polymerization mechanism of BMA with Fenton reagent as a new initiator was discussed, and the removal process of the PBMA templates and the formation of TiO 2 pore size were investigated, respectively. The results showed that the new method of polymerization overcomes many problems associated with the conventional emulsion polymerization techniques such as long reaction time, necessary deoxygenation, and complicated operation.

Gyroscope-like microparticle of lithium iron phosphate/multiwalled carbon nanotubes composites is synthesized by microwave-assisted sol-gel method with ferrous oxalate, lithium carbonate, and ammonium dihydric phosphate as raw materials. This new composites with gyroscope-like have not been reported in the literature. The crystal structure and surface morphology of the as-prepared particles are characterized by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy tests, and their electrochemical properties are investigated by cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic charge/discharge tests. The results demonstrated that the composites have an olivine structure and superior electrochemical performances in terms of discharge capacity, cycling stability and rate capability. These favorable electrochemical properties should be attributed to its special gyroscope-like microstructure. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
