A series of ZrO2 supported Ru-Co bimetallic catalysts were prepared and evaluated for the hydrogenolysis of glycerol. The Ru-Co/ZrO2 bimetallic catalyst combines the advantages of both Ru and Co, exhibiting high activity and good selectivity to 1,2-propanediol. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) and TEM results show that higher calcination temperature leads to(More)
Land subsidence in Changping, Beijing of China, has been an ongoing problem for the past four decades (since the later 1970s). We use Permanent Scatterers interferometric synthetic aperture radar PS-InSAR technique to detect and measure ground movement in this area. The detail information of deformation shows that spatial extent of subsidence is controlled(More)
A protocol for the direct functionalization of N-H/α,α,β,β-C(sp3)-H of piperidine without any metal or external oxidants is reported. This reaction is promoted by 4-(trifluoromethyl)benzoic acid via an azomethine ylide intermediate. This is a simple method for the synthesis of spirooxindoles bearing 3-substituted oxindole moieties.
The [4+3] annulation reaction of crotonate-derived sulfur ylides with thioaurones has, for the first time, been reported using NaH as the base. A diverse array of 2,5-dihydrobenzo[4,5]thieno[3,2-b]oxepines is obtained in good to excellent yields. The proposed mechanism is investigated and supported by DFT calculations.
Fuzheng Qingjie (FZQJ) granules, a compound Chinese medicine, have been used as an adjuvant therapy for alimentary tract cancers. However, the underlying anticancer mechanisms are still not well understood. In the present study, HepG2 cells were treated with FZQJ-containing serum. Cell proliferation was evaluated using MTT assay. Apoptosis was analyzed(More)
Solvent-controlled switchable domino reactions between 2-alkylidenebenzothiophene-3(2H)-ones and Morita-Baylis-Hillamn (MBH) carbonate were developed. All domino reactions exhibited excellent regioselectivity, producing a broad spectrum of benzothiophene-fused α-pyran, 2,3-dihydrooxepine, and oxatricyclodecene derivatives. Furthermore, [4 + 2], [4 + 3], and(More)
