Porous indium oxide nanorods have been synthesized by calcination of indium hydroxide, which were prepared through a simple sol-gel and aging process at low temperature in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) were adopted to characterize the phase composition and morphology of the resulted samples. The sensing properties towards H2 were examined at 340°C, which showed better sensitivity and quick response/recovery merits. © 2011 The Chinese Society for Metals.

Multifunctional molecules are capable of assembling via different supramolecular synthons, or hydrogen bond motifs, between the same or different functional groups, leading to the possibility of cocrystal. Utilization of the interplay of dimensionality (1-D, 2-D and 3-D), orientation of functional groups of the building blocks, influence of rigid/flexible linking groups, and weak interactions provides an interesting route for the creation of novel supramolecular architectures in the crystal lattice. N-unsubstituted 1H-benzotriazole and carboxylic acid, being self-complementary molecules, offer a broad scope of study of binary compounds based on the complementary combination of H-bonding/donating sites. We report here the construction of three extended molecular networks in cocrystals of the carboxylic acid group of the acid and the 1H-benzotriazole triazole moiety. We have been able to identify four major supramolecualr synthons that would be helpful in the prediction of structural motifs for these kinds of studies. Interestingly, these heterosynthons are strikingly similar, to those of the homosynthons of the individual functional groups. The nature of the aza groups helps to enhance the overall volume of the crystal lattice thus leading to the formation of various supramolecular assemblies. Thermal stability of these compounds has been investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) of mass loss. © 2012 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Hollow graphitic carbon nanospheres (HGCNSs) were synthesized on large scale by a simple reaction between glucose and Mg at 550°C in an autoclave. Characterization by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy demonstrates the formation of HGCNSs with an average diameter of 10 nm or so and a wall thickness of a few graphenes. The HGCNSs exhibit a reversible capacity of 391 mAh g-1 after 60 cycles when used as anode materials for Li-ion batteries. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The mechanism of the competitive interaction of streptomycin and Evans blue (EB) to bovine serum albumin (BSA) has been studied by using both fluorimetry and spectrophtometry. Effects of pH, streptomycin and concentration of EB on the competitive interaction of streptomycin and EB were examined. A static fluorescence quenching process was confirmed in the light of Stern-Volmer plot. The test result showed that there were strong and weak binding sites on BSA molecule and the binding constant of EB-BSA complex and the number of binding site n were obtained. These facts revealed that the competitive interaction was occurred between EB and streptomycwhich can possibly provide useful message in investigation of the interaction of antibiotic with BSA. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

g-C3N4/TiO2 composite were prepared by hydrolysis of Ti(OC4Hn 9)4 and the precursors of g-C3N4 at room temperature and annealing in nitrogen atmosphere. X-ray diffraction results revealed that all the products were anatase structure. The chemical nature of O, N of the g-C3N4/TiO2 were identified by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, presenting N-Ti-O and N-Ti-N doping status of the composite. The g-C3N4/TiO2 composite showed better photocatalytic activity for the UV and visible-light degradation of Rhodamine B. © 2010 The Chinese Society for Metals.
