It is highly sensitive to hypoxia, and this has posed a challenge to its intensive culturing. To date, the effects of hypoxia on reproduction in female prawns are not entirely clear, as are the underlying mechanisms of the effects of hypoxia. In this work, comparative t...

Gibril, Fangong KongAbstractApplication of the lignin-based monomer in polymers synthesis will reducing the use of petrochemical-based monomers, enhance the polymer/copolymers properties, and disposing lignin in a profitable way. Accordingly, in this work, the lignin-vinyl acetate monomer (LVAc) and its copolymers were synthesized successfully. To obtain the LVAc, firstly, lignin was activated with the amine using diethylenetriamine (DETA) and then followed by the grafting with chlorovinyl aceta...

In this study four kinds of fingerprints, including sweat, inkpad, sunscreen, and liquid foundation, were analyzed by air-flow assisted desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry imaging (AFADESI-MSI). AFADESI was employed with air flow of 45 L min−1, and 5 μL min−1 acetonitrile was used as spray solvent at spray voltage of 7000 V. Positive ion full scan mode (100−1000 Da) was chosen. The results showed that AFADESI-MSI method could not only obtain chemical information of various endogenous and exogenous substances in fingerprints, but also obtain high resolution images of fingerprints. In ad...

The traditional electrochemical techniques paid more attention on the electron transfer process on the electrode but provided limited information of the electrochemical evolution at molecular level. Realizing the in-situ monitoring of the intermediates at the electrode-electrolyte interface during the redox reaction was essent...

Preconcentration technology can improve the accuracy of analytical method and expand its application range. However, conventional sample preconcentration technology is often cumbersome, costly, time-consuming, and relies on expensive equipment. Paper-based microfluidic sample preconcentration technique has many a...

Intracellular membrane fusion plays a role in promoting the function of intracellular substances throughout the life cycle of an organism. The fusion of viruses and cell membranes may mark the end of life of an organism. However, due to the complexity of living cells, the interpretation of the results of organism research is often ambiguous. At present, only a few protein structures on the cel...

To further improve the CO2 adsorption performance of MOFs, a compound material of l-arginine modified graphene oxide (GO) with MOFs (MOF/GO-Arg) was synthesized. Introduction of amino acid-functionalized lamellar GO into MOF material not only generated new pores at their interface to improve the adsorption of the MOF but also promoted the CO2 capture at low humidity. The structural and chemi...

Developing methods without leading to additional burden in nature will be essential for PFCs removal. Herein, we functionalized iron nanoparticles on living diatom (Dt) to efficiently enable the Fenton reaction and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. Iron nanoparticles at the surface of living diatom act as promising catalytic agents to trigger O...
