Titanium oxide nanotubes were successfully grown from a titanium plate by direct anodic oxidation with 0.2 wt % hydrofluoric acid being the supporting electrolyte. These nanotubes are of uniform size and are well-aligned into high-density arrays. They look like honeywell with the structure similar to that of porous alumina obtained by the same technique.(More)
A simple, low-cost and sensitive method for determining organophosphate esters (OPEs) in water samples has been developed based on headspace solid-phase microextraction (SPME) followed by gas chromatography-flame photometric detector. The ionic liquid (1-allyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate, [AMIM][BF4])-based coating was developed by sol-gel(More)
A porous and highly efficient polyaniline-based solid-phase microextraction (SPME) coating was successfully prepared by the electrochemical deposition method. A method based on headspace SPME followed by HPLC was established to rapidly determine trace chlorophenols in water samples. Influential parameters for the SPME, including extraction mode, extraction(More)
This study focused on the enhanced debromination of decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-209) and 2,2',4,4'-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-47) by Fe-Ag nano-particles under microwave radiation (Fe-Ag/MW). Fe-Ag bimetallic nano-particles were synthesized by reductive deposition of Ag on nano-iron and characterized with a number of techniques, including BET, XRD, TEM(More)
The ultraviolet (UV) photolysis of atrazine in aqueous solution was investigated at wavelength of 254 nm in this study. This paper was mainly focused on the identification of atrazine degradation intermediates by HPLC-MS/MS and its degradation mechanisms. The photodegradation products included the following seven classes: dechloro-hydroxylated products,(More)
With the popular methods of CoMFA and CoMSIA, three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSARs) were newly developed for the toxicity of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). The choice of optimized geometries by density functional theory (DFT) as molecular template and the RMSD-based molecular alignment strategy might mostly(More)
Microwave-assisted photocatalytic (MPC) degradation of malachite green (MG) in aqueous TiO2 suspensions was investigated. A 20 mg/L sample of MG was rapidly and completely decomposed in 3 min with the corresponding TOC removal efficiency of about 85%. To gain insight into the degradation mechanism, both GC-MS and LC-ESI-MS/MS techniques were employed to(More)
The present study described the degradation behavior of tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) in Fe-Ag suspension solutions under ultrasonic radiation (US). The Fe-Ag bimetallic nanoparticles with core-shell structure were successfully synthesized by reduction and deposition of Ag on nanoscale Fe surface, and were further characterized by BET, XRD, TEM, SEM, X-ray(More)
Benzophenone (BP) type UV filters are widely used in many personal care products to protect human from UV irradiation. Despite the estrogenic potencies to fish and the environmental occurrences of BP derivatives in aquatic systems, little information is available regarding their effects on the antioxidant defense system in fish. In this work, the oxidative(More)
The present study investigated the feasibility of using two mixed surfactants, anionic surfactant sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS) and nonionic surfactant polysorbate 80 (Tween80), for the remediation of p-nitrochlorobenzene (pNCB) contaminated soil. The water solubility, the apparent soil-water distribution constant (K(d)(*)) and the desorption ratio(More)
