Abstract
Poly(ethylene imine) (PEI) has abundant amino groups in a macromolecular chain and can be used as a graft source for metal nanocomposites, which shows excellent ability to form stable complexes with heavy metal ions. In this work, a simple and convenient method was used to make PEI into a stable hydrogel with 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide-N-hydroxysuccinimide and subsequently coprecipitate with silver nitrate solution or palladium chloride solution to form metal-loaded composite hydrogels. In addition, the characterizations of composite hydrogels were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, specific surface area tests (Brunauer–Emmett–Teller), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and ultraviolet spectroscopy. The properties of composite hydrogels on the catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol were studied. The results showed that the composite hydrogels could be easily separated from the water environment, which indicated the large-scale potential application in organic catalytic degradati...

Abstract As Prussian Blue analogues (PBAs) represent one of the most classical families of coordination compounds and exhibit versatile catalytic activities, PBAs have been considered as useful heterogeneous catalysts for reduction of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) to 4-aminophenol (4-AP). Nevertheless, while Cu has been a well-proven transition metal for 4-NP reduction, especially, due to their ability to attain pronounced conversions of reactants under mild conditions, environmental friendliness and gre...

The construction of heterojunctions provides a promising strategy to improve photocatalytic hydrogen evolution. However, how to fabricate a nanoscale TiO2/g-C3N4 heterostructure and hinder the aggregation of bulk g-C3N4 using simple methods remains a challenge. In this work, we use a simple in situ construction method to design a heterojunction model based on molecular self-assembly, which uses a small molecule matrix for self-integration, including coordination donors (AgNO3), inorganic titaniu...

Self-assembled hydrogel materials constructed from cyclodextrin polymer (P-CD)/adamantane-modified poly acrylic acid (PAA-Ad) were designed and prepared via host–guest interactions. It was observed that the prepared supramolecular hydrogels had an interconnected three-dimensional porous network. In addition, the obtained hydrogels showed a recovery performance and it was confirmed that the host–guest interactions between β-cyclodextrin and adamantane were the main driving force for the formation...

Achieving a higher dissymmetry factor is a crucial issue in developing circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) materials. Here, by tailoring the solvent composition and the morphology of the same chiral emissive small molecules (R- or S-SPAn), circularly polarized emission with a boosted dissymmetry factor (two orders) was realized. It was found that by regulating the water fraction in the mixed THF/H2O, we were able to achieve kinetic control over association of chiral emissive R- or S-SPAn int...

In recent years, people pay more attention to environmental pollution and the treatment of sewage has become the focus of recent research. Palladium nanoparticles have good catalytic properties but are easy to agglomerate. Therefore, we used the electrospinning technology to prepare a uniform composite nanofiber film based on polyacrylic acid (PAA) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), which demonstrated that they are good carriers of palladium nanoparticles to make the nanoparticles well dispersed. Furt...

Abstract A sustainable nanomaterial, cellulose nanofibril (CNF) was used to prepare aerogel sorbents to remove various contaminants in wastewater. A mussel-inspired coating strategy was used to introduce polydopamine onto the surface of CNFs, which were cross-linked with polyethylenimine (PEI) to form the aerogels. The synthetic procedure was optimized to achieve a minimal consumption of raw materials to produce a robust porous structure. The aerogels possessed a low density (25.0 mg/cm3), high ...

In order to improve the corrosion resistance of zinc-rich epoxy coatings and reduce the amount of zinc used, first, graphene oxide (GO) was modified by sulfonated multiwall carbon nanotubes (SMWCNTs) to obtain the modified graphene oxide (SM-GO). The samples were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Raman spectroscopy. Then, four kinds of coatings were prepared, namely pure zinc-rich coating (0-ZRC), graphene oxide-based zinc-rich coating ...
