A new and sensitive photoelectrochemical (PEC) biosensor which is visible-light-activated was fabricated based on acetochlor's ability to inhibit glucose oxidase (GOx) activity. An NH2-MIL-125(Ti)/TiO2 nanocomposite, as a new functional material, was used for the immobilization of GOx by using chitosan (CS) as the dispersion matrix. Under visible light irradiation, the GOx/CS/NH2-MIL-125(Ti)/TiO2 nanocomposite can generate a stable photocurrent in a glucose solution. When acetochlor was added to a phosphate buffer solution containing glucose, the activity of GOx was inhibited thus causing a photocurrent drop, and the photocurrent was inversely proportional to the acetochlor concentration. A corresponding analytical method was developed. The inhibition of the photocurrent was proportional to the concentration of acetochlor in the range from 0.02 to 1.0 nM and in the range from 10 to 200 nM with a detection limit of 0.003 nM (S/N = 3). The study is a successful attempt to make a PEC biosensor based on monitoring the activity and inhibition of GOx, and shows its practical application in acetochlor detection in fruit and vegetable samples. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.

This paper focuses on the problem of image registration, which is a fundamental and important problem in computer vision. As local features are effective to tackle the task of image registration, hence, we exploit SIFT feature descriptors to describe the interesting key points in images. The reasons is that SIFT can extract features which are invariant to scaling, orientation, affine transforms and illumination changes. Afterwards, to lower the effects of outliers, the nearest distance ratio method is used to get initial matched feature descriptor pairs, and then scale-orientation joint restriction is used to detect false matching SIFT descriptor pairs. After using Random Sample Consensus to prune outliers, image registration results can be obtained. In the end, we develop an experiment based on QuickBird and IKONOS datasets, and very positive results are achieved. © 2016 IEEE.

In this paper, carboxymethyl-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin polymer modified magnetic particles Fe3O4 (CM-HP-β-CDCP-MNPs) were prepared and applied to magnetic solid phase extraction of rutin combined with UV-visible spectrometry detection. The synthesized magnetic particles were characterized by element analysis, Fourier transform infrared spectra, thermal gravimetric analysis, and transmission electron microscopy. Several variables affecting the extraction and desorption of rutin such as pH, the amount of adsorbent, the type and volume of eluent, extraction and desorption time, and temperature were investigated. The maximum adsorption capacity was 67.0 mg g-1 for rutin with the equilibrium time of 30 min at room temperature, and the adsorbent could be reused for 10 times. A calibration curve was linear in the range of 0.05-8.00 μg mL-1 with a relative standard deviation of 2.9% (n = 5, c = 4.0 μg mL-1). The limit of detection was 7.0 ng mL-1. The interaction mechanism between the adsorbent and rutin was also studied. Feasibility of this method was validated by the analysis of rutin tablets and lotus plumule. ©.

In this paper, a simple and efficient ultrasound-assisted ionic liquid dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (UA IL-DLLME) coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography for the analysis of ulipristal acetate (UPA) was developed. UPA could be easily migrated into 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate [C8mimPF6] IL phase without dispersive solvent. The research of extraction mechanism showed that hydrophobic interaction force played a key role in the IL-DLLME. Several important parameters affecting the extraction recovery were optimized. Under the optimized conditions, 25-fold enrichment factor was obtained and the limit of detection (LOD) was 6.8 ng mL-1 (tablet) or 9.3 ng mL-1 (serum) at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3. The calibration curve was linear over the range of 0.03-6.0 μg mL-1. The proposed method was successfully applied to the UPA tablets and the real mice serum samples. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

A novel spectrofluorimetric method to determine abiraterone acetate and its active metabolite, abiraterone was developed, based on the fact that fluorescence intensity of abiraterone acetate and abiraterone could be enhanced in β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) due to the formation of the inclusion complex. The inclusion interaction of β-CD and abiraterone acetate and the β-cyclodextrin sensitized spectrofluorimetry was examined. The various factors influencing fluorescence were discussed in details. The results showed that under the optimized conditions, the linear range of calibration curve for the determination of biraterone acetate and abiraterone was 0.20 ~ 6.0 μg/mL, and the detection limit (LOD) was 6.8 (r = 0.997) or 6.6 ng/mL (r = 0.996), respectively. No interference was observed from common co-existing substances or pharmaceutical excipient. The method was successfully applied to the analysis of abiraterone acetate in pharmaceutical formulation and abiraterone in human serum/urine. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

A novel separation/analysis method was developed for the determination of dutasteride in a pharmaceutical formulation and biological samples, which based on surfactant dodecyl sodium sulfate (SDS)/ionic liquid 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide (IL, [C6min]Br) aqueous two-phase system (ATPS) extraction coupled with spectrofluorimetry. The ATPS was formed owing to new ordered molecular assembly SDS/IL, which not only extracted dutasteride but also sensitized its fluorescence intensity due to synergistic sensitizing effect. Under optimum conditions, a linear calibration curve was obtained in the range of 0.016-0.64μgmL-1 with r=0.9991 (n=8). The detection limit was 2.2ngmL-1. The preconcentration factor was 7.5. The proposed green analytical procedure was satisfactorily applied to the analysis of dutasteride in dutasteride soft gelatin capsule and human serum with the recovery of 96.7-108.0%. The obtained results of this work were in good agreement with the results of HPLC. The extraction mechanism ATPS-based was also discussed. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Poly(o-phenylenediamine) (POPD) hollow microspheres with Ag submicrometre particles decorated on both inner and outer surfaces of shells as Ag/POPD hollow hybrids have been successfully fabricated through the reduction of AgNO 3 by ascorbic acid in aqueous solution containing POPD hollow microspheres. Poly(o-phenylenediamine) hollow microspheres with functional amine groups on surfaces of polymer shells are chosen as supporter for Ag particles. Ag/POPD hollow hybrids are characterised by Fourier transform infrared and X-ray diffraction spectroscopy techniques. Formation mechanisms involved have been proposed according to experimental results. Furthermore, catalytic activities of Ag/POPD hollow hybrids towards the reduction of 4-nitrophenol in the presence of NaBH4 have also been investigated. © W. S. Maney & Son Ltd. 2013.

A drive module of LED constant current source with the output power of about 50 W was designed, and the load is a LED array consisting of multiple hybrid LED tubes, and the power of each LED is 1 W. By designing and manufacturing of the current-mode flyback converter and constant current control circuit, tests with different loads under different input voltages indicate that the current change laws are similar for each condition. As the load decreases, the output voltage increases but the output current decreases, the output current stability will be up to 4.6%. Under a certain load and the output voltage maintaining at around 47.2 V, the voltage ripple peak-peak value will be approximately 400 mV. The current fluctuation is about 0.05 A, and the output current is stable and reliable, which can be used for power supply of multiple hybrid LED array.

The adsorption behavior of metal cations on gold nanoparticles was investigated by isothermal titration microcalorimetry (ITC) for the first time, and verified by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and UV absorption spectroscopy. When transition metal cations were injected into the gold colloids, a binding isotherm with a sigmoidal response was obtained; and when instead of alkaline earth cations, the binding isotherm changed from the overall exothermic to endothermic nature. The binding enthalpy depends on the nature and concentration of added cations. The interactions of metal cations with the surface gold atoms and the COO- group of citrate salt that weakly bound on gold nanoparticles are the driving force for the binding; and the binding process is enthalpically driven. TEM images indicate that the addition of metal cations results in the growth and aggregation of gold nanoparticles. After the metal cations were added to the gold colloids, the intensity of the surface plasmon resonance adsorption band at 523 nm of gold nanoparticles decreased, and a new absorption at around 610 nm appeared. This is attributed to gold nanoclusters induced by the surface binding of the metal cations on gold nanoparticles, which is further confirmed by ITC results.
