Microemulsion composed of Span20 + Tween20 isopropyl myristate (IPM) + H2O were investigated as potential drug delivery systems for eye drops. The system is important in that all its components are food grade so that the microemulsion is almost free of toxicity and irritation. The phase transition was investigated using the electrical conductivity(More)
Graphdiyne (GDY), a novel large π-conjugated carbon material, for the first time, is introduced as the hole transfer layer into a photoelectrochemical water splitting cell (PEC). Raman and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopic studies indicate the existence of relatively strong π-π interactions between GDY and 4-mercaptopyridine surface-functionalized(More)
Nature has created [FeFe]-hydrogenase enzyme as a hydrogen-forming catalyst with a high turnover rate. However, it does not meet the demands of economically usable catalytic agents because of its limited stability and the cost of its production and purification. Synthetic chemistry has allowed the preparation of remarkably close mimics of [FeFe]-hydrogenase(More)
Microemulsion systems composed of Span20/80+Tween20/80+n-butanol+H2O+isopropyl palmitate (IPP)/isopropyl myristate (IPM) were investigated as model systems of drug carriers for eye drops. Effects of chloramphenicol, normal saline, sodium hyaluronate and various oils on the phase behavior were studied. The phase transition was investigated by the electrical(More)
We report a ratiometric fluorescent sensor based on monochlorinated BODIPY for highly selective detection of glutathione (GSH) over cysteine (Cys)/homocysteine (Hcy). The chlorine of the monochlorinated BODIPY can be rapidly replaced by thiolates of biothiols through thiol-halogen nucleophilic substitution. The amino groups of Cys/Hcy but not GSH further(More)
Graphene nanosheet-supported ultrafine metal nanoparticles encapsulated by thin mesoporous SiO2 layers were prepared and used as robust catalysts with high catalytic activity and excellent high-temperature stability. The catalysts can be recycled and reused in many gas- and solution-phase reactions, and their high catalytic activity can be fully recovered(More)
Simple thiol derivatives, such as cysteine (Cys), homocysteine (Hcy), and glutathione (GSH), play key roles in biological processes, and the fluorescent probes to detect such thiols in vivo selectively with high sensitivity and fast response times are critical for understanding their numerous functions. However, the similar structures and reactivities of(More)

1,4-Dihydropyridines have been photocatalytically oxidized to pyridines by platinum(II) terpyridyl complexes with the generation of hydrogen in homogeneous solution. The hydrogen production proceeds in quantitative yield and with great catalytic turnover.
