A novel Gram-staining-negative bacterial strain, designated XH4(T), was isolated from soil of a Populus euphratica forest in the Hotan River valley, Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region, PR China. The cells were strictly aerobic, non-motile, short rods. The isolate grew optimally at 37 °C and at pH 7.0-8.0. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain(More)
Carbon nanotubes have excellent penetrability and encapsulation efficiency in the fields of drug and gene delivery. Because of their excellent physicochemical properties, biocompatible rodlike cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) were reportedly expected to replace carbon nanotubes. In this work, CNCs from natural cotton wool were functionalized with disulfide(More)
An effective method was developed to prepare hybrid materials of TiO2 nanoparticles on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets for application in solar cells. The morphology, size, and crystal phase of the TiO2 nanoparticles and TiO2@reduced graphene oxide (TiO2@RGO) hybrids were investigated in detail by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy(More)
A single SnO2 nanobelt was assembled on a pair of Au electrodes by electric-field assembly method. The electronic transport property of single SnO2 nanobelt was studied by conductive atomic force microscopy (C-AFM). Back-to-back Schottky barrier-type junctions were created between AFM tip/SnO2 nanobelt/Au electrode which can be concluded from the I-V curve.(More)
Different shaped bismuth subcarbonate ((BiO)2CO3) nanostructures including irregular nanoplates, relatively uniform nanoplates and nanocubes were prepared and characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-vis diffuse reflection spectroscopy (DRS) and nitrogen adsorption. The(More)
Molecular dynamics simulations are conducted to investigate the underwater oleophobicity of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) with different head groups. Simulation results show that the order of underwater oleophobicity of SAMs is methyl < amide < oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG) < ethanolamine (ETA) < hydroxyl < mixed-charged zwitterionic. The underwater-oil(More)
Considerable efforts have focused on functional TiO2@carbonaceous hybrid nanostructured materials (TiO2@C) to satisfy the future requirements of environmental photocatalysis and energy storage using these advanced materials. In this study, we developed a two-step solution-phase reaction to prepare hybrid TiO2@C with tuneable structure and composition from(More)
A multibranched Cu(II) complex CuL2 curcumin-based was synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The photophysical properties of the complex have been investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The results show that the target complex exhibits higher quantum yield and larger two-photon absorption (TPA)(More)
According to the Stockholm Convention, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) and dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (DL-PCBs) are classified into unintentionally produced persistent organic pollutants (UP-POPs), and named dioxins. Coke production as a thermal process contains organic matters, metal and chlorine, is considered to be a(More)
Surface-doping anatase TiO₂ nanoparticles with Mg²⁺ were prepared via a novel synthetic method, and used as photoanodes for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) image results indicate that the Mg²⁺ doping has no effect on the crystal phase and(More)
