A hierarchical microporous carbon material with a Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area of 1348 m(2) g(-1) and a pore volume of 0.67 cm(3) g(-1) was prepared from yeast through chemical activation with potassium hydroxide. This type of material contains large numbers of nitrogen-containing groups (nitrogen content >5.3 wt%), and, consequently, basic sites. As(More)
Chiral zeolitic materials with intrinsically chiral frameworks are highly desired because they can combine both shape selectivity and enantioselectivity. In the field of zeolite, the synthesis of chiral polymorph A of zeolite Beta or chiral polymorph A-enriched zeolite Beta is one of the biggest challenges. We demonstrate here a generalized extremely(More)
Graphene supported Au-Pd bimetallic nanoparticles exhibit high catalytic activity in methanol selective oxidation, with a methanol conversion of 90.2% and selectivity of 100%, to methyl formate at 70 °C, owing to the synergism of Au and Pd particles as well as the strong interaction between graphene and Au-Pd nanoparticles.
A series of sustainable porous carbon materials were prepared from waste polyurethane foam and investigated for capture of CO2. The effects of preparation conditions, such as precarbonization, KOH to carbon precursor weight ratio, and activation temperature, on the porous structure and CO2 adsorption properties were studied for the purpose of controlling(More)
CoAPO-5 molecular sieves have been synthesized with glycerol and water as solvent in order to maximize the degree of isomorphous substitution of Co2+ ions in the AFI framework. These CoAPO-5 molecular sieves have been characterized with X-ray diffraction, inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, electron(More)
Chainlike zeolites are advantageous to various applications as a catalyst or an adsorbent with specific selectivity; however, it is often very difficult to get desired morphology due to the complexity of zeolite synthesis process. In this work, appropriate parameters for the synthesis of perfect chainlike ZSM-5 zeolites were well determined, which(More)
In the catalytic conversion of lignocellulose to valuable products, the first entry point is to break down these biopolymers to sugar units or aromatic monomers, which is conventionally achieved by hydrolysis in water medium. Recent years have seen tremendous progress in the alcoholysis process, which has remarkable advantages, such as the avoidance of(More)
BACKGROUND Available drugs for the global Alzheimer disease (AD) epidemic only treat the symptoms without modifying disease progression. Accumulating evidence supports amyloid-β42 (Aβ42)as the key triggering agent in AD, making it the ideal target for disease-modifying therapies. Preclinical studies provided extensive support for passive Aβ42 immunotherapy,(More)
The mechanism of olefin elimination in the process of methanol-to-olefins (MTO) over a series of zeolites like HZSM-5, HMOR, HBEA, and HMCM-22 was investigated by DFT-D calculations, which is a crucial step that controls the MTO product distribution. The results demonstrate that the manners of olefin elimination are related to the pore structure of zeolite(More)
