Ternary TiO2-SiO2-Ag nanocomposites with enhanced visible-light photocatalytic activity have been synthesized through a facile biomimetic approach by utilizing lysozyme as both inducing agent of TiO2 and reducing agent of Ag(+). TiO2 nanoparticles (∼280 nm) are at first fabricated by the inducing of lysozyme. Afterward, SiO2 layers are formed as "pancakes"(More)
UNLABELLED Membrane separation processes are often perplexed by severe and ubiquitous membrane fouling. Zwitterionic materials, keeping electric neutrality with equivalent positive and negative charged groups, are well known for their superior antifouling properties and have been broadly utilized to construct antifouling surfaces for medical devices,(More)
Graphene oxide (GO) is an emerging kind of building block for advanced membranes with tunable passageway for water molecules. To synergistically manipulate the channel and surface structures/properties of GO-based membranes, the different building blocks are combined and the specific interfacial interactions are designed in this study. With vacuum-assisted(More)
Flower-like chitosan/calcium pyrophosphate hybrid microparticles (microflowers) are prepared using a facile one-pot approach by combining ionotropic gelation with biomimetic mineralization. Chitosan-tripolyphosphate (CS-TPP) nanocomplexes are first synthesized through ionotropic gelation; meanwhile, excess TPP is partly hydrolyzed into pyrophosphate ions(More)
With the continuous increase in fossil fuels consumption and the rapid growth of atmospheric CO2 concentration, the harmonious state between human and nature faces severe challenges. Exploring green and sustainable energy resources and devising efficient methods for CO2 capture, sequestration and utilization are urgently required. Converting CO2 into(More)
A novel enzyme membrane reactor with sandwich structure has been developed by confining glucosidase between two sheets of ultrafiltration membranes to effectively convert maltose to isomaltooligosaccharides (IMOs). The hydrophilic ultrafiltration membranes, which were prepared by phase inversion method using PES as bulk polymer and Pluronic F127 as both(More)
PURPOSE To describe the effects of the combination of several therapies on the pulmonary circulation and cardiac function in a patient with severe pulmonary hypertension. CLINICAL FEATURES We report the case of a female patient with chronic secondary pulmonary hypertension and cardiac failure who underwent right hemicolectomy under general anesthesia.(More)
A facile and green bioadhesion-assisted bio-inspired mineralization (BABM) approach is proposed to construct spatially separated multienzyme system for conversion of carbon dioxide to formaldehyde. Specifically, formate dehydrogenase is entrapped accompanying the formation of titania nanoparticles (NPs) through bio-inspired titanification. After in situ(More)
One of the greatest challenges to the sustainability of modern society is an inadequate supply of clean water. Due to its energy-saving and cost-effective features, membrane technology has become an indispensable platform technology for water purification, including seawater and brackish water desalination as well as municipal or industrial wastewater(More)
