We investigated the effects of polysaccharides from the brown seaweed Sargassum graminifolium (Turn.) (SGP) on calcium oxalate crystallization, and determined its antioxidant activities. To examine the effects of SGP on calcium oxalate crystallization, we monitored nucleation and aggregation of calcium oxalate monohydrate crystals, using trisodium citrate(More)
Three Ag(I)-organic frameworks, [Ag5(pydc)2(CN)]n, {[Ag4(pydc)2]CH3CN}n, and [Ag(4,4'-bpy)NO3]n, were synthesized and embedded into silica gels to form metal-organic-framework (MOF)-embedded gels for the microextraction of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in soils. Despite the great differences in the structures of the organic ligands, all three(More)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have great potential for applications in chromatography due to their highly tailorable porous structures and unique properties. In this work, the stable MOF UiO-66 was evaluated as both a normal-phase (NP-) and a reverse-phase (RP-) stationary phase in the high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to separate substituted(More)
A method based on headspace (HS) sampling coupling with portable gas chromatography (GC) with photo ionization detector (PID) was developed for rapid determination of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX) in soils. Optimal conditions for HS gas sampling procedure were determined, and the influence of soil organic matter on the recovery of BTEX(More)
In the centrosymmetric dinuclear title complex, [Ag(2)(CF(3)SO(3))(2)(C(11)H(11)N(3)S)(2)], the Ag(I) atom is coordinated by two N atoms from two 4-methyl-2-(2-pyridyl-methyl-sulfan-yl)pyrimidine ligands and one O atom from a trifluoro-methane-sulfonate anion in a distorted T-type coordination geometry. The ligand adopts a bidentate bridging coordination(More)
In the title compound, 2C(9)H(7)N(2)O(4) (+)·SO(4) (2-)·H(2)O, the sulfate S atom and the water O atom reside on a crystallographic twofold axis. In the crystal, the component species are linked by N-H⋯O, O-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network structure. An intramol-ecular O-H⋯O link is seen in the cation.
A micro-solid-phase extraction (μ-SPE) device was developed by filling copper(II) isonicotinate coordination polymer (Cu(4-C(5)H(4)N-COO)(2)(H(2)O)(4)) into a porous polypropylene envelope, and the μ-SPE, coupling with gas chromatography (GC) with a micro-cell electron capture detector (μ-ECD), was used for extraction and determination of PBDEs in soils.(More)
Since the 1990s, most developed countries have issued the risk-based environmental standards or criteria for soil, as well as corresponding technical background documents, this provides methodological references for developing soil environmental standards and criteria in developing countries. However, because of the variability in legislation frameworks,(More)
In the title centrosymmetric binuclear complex, [Y(2)(C(10)H(6)NO(2))(6)(H(2)O)(4)]·2H(2)O, each Y(III) atom is nine-coordin-ated by nine O atoms from five ligands and two water mol-ecules in a slightly distorted monocapped square-anti-prismatic coordination environment. The Y(III) atoms are separated by a distance of 4.0363 (9) Å. The ligands coordinate in(More)
In the title compound, catena-poly[cadmium(II)-bis-(μ-5-am-ino-1,3,4-thia-diazole-2-thiol-ato)-κ(2)N(3):S(2);κ(2)S(2):N(3)], [Cd(C(2)H(2)N(3)S(2))(2)](n), the Cd(II) ion is coordinated by two N atoms of the 1,3,4-thia-diazole rings from two ligands and two S atoms of sulfhydryl from two other ligands in a slightly distorted tetra-hedral geometry.
