A series of 5-dialkyl(aryl)aminomethyl-8-hydroxyquinoline dansylates were synthesized and their fluoroionophoric properties toward representative alkali ions, alkaline earth ions and transition metal ions were investigated. Among the selected ions, Fe3+ caused considerable quenching of the fluorescence, while Cr3+ caused quenching to some extent. The(More)
Furfural was oxidized to furoic acid by molecular oxygen under catalysis by 150 nm-sized Ag(2)O/CuO (92%) or simply CuO (86.6%). When 30 nm-size catalyst was used,the main product was a furfural Diels-Alder adduct. Detailed reaction conditions and regeneration of catalysts were investigated. Under optimal conditions, a series of aromatic and aliphatic(More)
The fragmentation patterns of a novel series of dithiocarbamate derivatives with pharmaceutical activity were investigated by positive ion electrospray ionization mass spectrometry in conjunction with tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS(n)). In the gas phase, the dithiocarbamate protonated molecules containing the piperazinium moiety undergo losses of bromide(More)
The synthesis, properties and applications of a water-soluble boronate-functioned hemicyanine-naphthol hybrid as a novel ratiometric fluorescent sensor for hydrogen peroxide are presented. The dye displayed remarkable a colour change from pale orange (λ(em)  = 590 nm) to pink (λ(em)  = 690 nm) in the presence of H2O2, which could be rationalized by the(More)
A series of fluorescent sensors based on 8-hydroxyquinoline dansylate as core and dendritic PAMAM as shell were synthesized. Their fluorescence characteristic and fluorescent sensing behavior toward metal ions were studied in water/methanol (1: 1, v/v). The sensors exhibit good selectivity and sensitivity for Fe(3+) ion and to some extent for Cr(3+) ion.(More)
The fragmentation patterns of a series of dispirocyclopiperazinium dibromides with strong analgesic activity are analyzed by positive ion electrospray ionization mass spectrometry in conjunction with tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS(n)). Instead of the parent molecular ions, the fragment ions [M-Br](+) are detected as characteristic double peaks and usually(More)
The synthesis of two novel dendritic aluminum and zinc quinolates, which are soluble in common solvents, was monitored effectively by positive ion electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Through tandem mass spectrometric analysis of the complexes, distinct fragmentation pathways for sodium adduct molecular ion [M+Na]+ and protonated molecular(More)
