3D printing of versatile reactionware for chemical synthesis
A general approach for the production of bespoke chemical reactors, termed reactionware, using two different approaches to extrusion-based 3D printing, which allows versatility in the design and use of reactionware based on the specific needs of the experimental user.
Recent advances on polyoxometalate-based molecular and composite materials.
This critical review summarizes recent progress on POM-based molecular and composite materials, and particularly highlights the emerging areas that are closely related to surface, electronic, energy, environment, life science, etc.
Environmentally benign polyoxometalate materials
Abstract Polyoxometalates (POMs) are a class of versatile and discrete anionic metal oxides in groups 5 and 6. POMs have unique physical and chemical properties, e.g., strong Bronsted acidity, strong
PVP-encapsulated CoFe2O4/rGO composites with controllable electromagnetic wave absorption performance
Abstract Nowadays, developing electromagnetic wave (EMW) absorbers with lightweight, broad bandwidth and strong absorbing capacity is of great importance in electromagnetic radiation issue. In this
Highly efficient extraction and oxidative desulfurization system using Na7H2LaW10O36⋅32 H2O in [bmim]BF4 at room temperature.
LaW(10) in [bmim]BF(4) is one of the most efficient systems for desulfurization using ionic liquids as extractant reported so far.
Interweaved LDH/PAN nanocomposite films: Application in the design of effective hexavalent chromium adsorption technology
Abstract Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) exhibit numerous industrial applications including pollutant adsorption due to their distinctive structural chemistry. However, their adsorption efficiency
Investigating the formation of "molybdenum blues" with gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry.
Gel electrophoresis and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry are combined to investigate the effect of the pH and the ratio of reactants and reducing agents, R, on the complex underlying set of equilibria that make up MBs to lead to a greater understanding of the complex reaction networks underpinning the assembly of this family of nanoclusters.
Tri-lacunary polyoxometalates of Na8H[PW9O34] as heterogeneous Lewis base catalysts for Knoevenagel condensation, cyanosilylation and the synthesis of benzoxazole derivatives
Abstract We reported for the first time the development of tri-lacunary polyoxometalates (POMs) of Na8H[A-PW9O34]·7H2O and Na8H[B-PW9O34]·19H2O (Na-A-PW9 and Na-B-PW9) as highly selective and
Highly Selective and Efficient Removal of Cr(VI) and Cu(II) by the Chromotropic Acid-Intercalated Zn–Al Layered Double Hydroxides
A chromotropic acid (CTA) intercalated layered double hydroxide (LDH) supramolecular assembly with the molecular formula Zn0.79Al0.21(OH)2(CTA)0.11·0.79H2O (denoted as Zn4Al–CTA–LDH) has been
Digital Control of Multistep Hydrothermal Synthesis by Using 3D Printed Reactionware for the Synthesis of Metal–Organic Frameworks
A simple, cheap, and modular approach to the design reactors consisting of partitioned chambers is demonstrated to achieve multi‐step synthesis under hydrothermal conditions, in digitally defined reactionware produced by 3D printing.
