The chemical modification of powdered beech wood by reaction with cyanuric chloride (2,4,6-trichloro-s-triazine) is discussed in terms of the reaction time and temperature, as well as the concentration of the aqueous sodium hydroxide solutions used in the preparation of alkali-treated wood powders. The influence of the surface structure of wood on the(More)
The biodegradations of 52 priority organic compounds were evaluated under anaerobic conditions by two tests developed in a preceding paper (Urano et al., 1995). Namely, the biodegradabilities of the compounds were classified into 13 ranks by the method proposed by Urano et al. (1995). Most of the aliphatic alcohols and carboxylic acids were not inhibitory(More)
Reaction conditions for the synthesis of an ε-Keggin-type polyoxometalate-based 3D framework, (NH4)2.8H0.9[ε-VMo9.4V2.6O40Bi2]·7.2H2O (denoted as Mo-V-Bi oxide), are studied. It is found that the reaction time, temperature, pH of the solution, and starting compounds affect the production of Mo-V-Bi oxide. The crystal size of Mo-V-Bi oxide is controllable by(More)
A new type of polyoxometalate-based porous material was successfully synthesized. The new material is the first fully inorganic Keggin-type polyoxometalate-based microporous material with intrinsically ordered open micropores and is the third member of the small family of octahedral molecular sieves (OMSs). Twelve MoO6 or VO6 octahedra surround a central(More)
Biodegradability is one of the most important characteristics of an organic compound for predicting its fate and life in the environment and its application in biological wastewater treatment. But there is no general testing method for biodegradability under anaerobic conditions. The biodegradabilities of thirteen principal organic compounds was(More)
Two new ε-Keggin-type polyoxometalate-based 3D frameworks, Na1.5H11.4[ε-Zn(II)Mo(V)10.9Mo(VI)1.1O40{Zn(II)}2] and (NH4)2.1H7.5[ε-Mn(II)0.2Mo(V)6Mo(VI)6O40{Mn(II)}2], are prepared, and their structures are determined by powder X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared, Raman spectroscopy, and elemental analysis. ε-Keggin-type polyoxomolybdate units,(More)
The development of metal oxide-based molecular wires is important for fundamental research and potential practical applications. However, examples of these materials are rare. Here we report an all-inorganic transition metal oxide molecular wire prepared by disassembly of larger crystals. The wires are comprised of molybdenum(VI) with either tellurium(IV)(More)
