Astroviruses are associated with acute gastroenteritis of human and many animal species. Recently, two studies have reported that novel astroviruses were found in bats. In order to extensively understand the genetic and phylogenetic characterization of bat astroviruses, we tested fecal samples of nine bat species that were collected at four natural habitats(More)
In this study, we demonstrated a highly sensitive, selective, and reversible chemosensor for Hg(2+) determination. This chemosensor was synthesized by direct condensation of thymin-1-ylacetic acid with zinc tetraaminoporphyrin, which has a porphyrin core as the fluorophore and four thymine (T) moieties as the specific interaction sites for Hg(2+) . The(More)
Metal-free N-doped carbon (NC) materials have been regarded as one of the most promising catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in alkaline media because of their outstanding ORR catalytic activity, high stability, and good methanol tolerance. Up to now, only a small minority of such catalysts have been synthesized from triazine-based polymeric(More)
A novel compound TPI-H containing triphenylimidazole chromophore is synthesized and employed as fluorescent probe for sequential detection of Cu2+ and S2-. With three binding sites in its molecular structure, TPI-H exhibits highly selective binding towards Cu2+ and results in an apparent fluorescence "on-off" behavior. Fluorescence intensity is linear with(More)
In this paper, we demonstrated a highly selective colorimetric chemodosimeter for cyanide anion detection. This chemodosimeter having a triphenylimidazole group as a fluorescent signal unit and a dicyano-vinyl group as a reaction unit was synthesized by the Knoevenagel condensation of 4-(4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl)benzaldehyde with malononitrile in a(More)
