Hydrothermal Synthesis of Iodine-Doped Nanoplates with Enhanced Visible and Ultraviolet-Induced Photocatalytic Activities
Jiang Zhang,Zheng-Hong Huang,Yong Xu,Feiyu Kang
International Journal of Photoenergy , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/915386
Abstract: The iodine-doped Bi2WO6 (I-BWO) photocatalyst was prepared via a hydrothermal method using potassium iodide as the source of iodine. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and selected area electron diffraction (SAED), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. The photocatalytic activity of I-BWO for the degradation of rhodamine B (RhB) was higher than that of pure BWO and I2-BWO regardless of visible light (>420?nm) or ultraviolet light (<400?nm) irradiation. The results of DRS analysis showed that the I-BWO and I2-BWO catalysts had narrower band gaps. XPS analysis proved that the multivalent iodine species including I0 and were coadsorbed on the defect surface of Bi2WO6 in I-BWO. The enhanced PL intensity revealed that a large number of defects of oxygen vacancies were formed by the doping of iodine. The enhanced photocatalytic activity of I-BWO for degradation of RhB was caused by the synergetic effect of a small crystalline size, a narrow band gap, and plenty of oxygen vacancies. 1. Introduction To decompose the organic pollutants existing in water and air, the advanced oxidation technique of photocatalysis was applied to deal with the serious environmental problems. Among all kinds of photocatalysts, the UV-induced TiO2 as an effective photocatalyst have been applied widely in the conversion of photon energy into chemical energy and the decomposition of organic pollutants in air and water. For example, the photocatalytic technology had been used to disinfect water utilizing the solar energy [1]. In earlier researches, to develop visible-light-driven photocatalysts, in the case of TiO2, the doping with nonmetal elements was regarded as a feasible modification to expand the photoresponsive range greatly and to inhibit the recombination of photoinduced electrons and holes efficiently [2–4]. In the past decades, the nitrogen-doped titanium dioxide was regarded as an effective case to improve the visible light photoresponsivity and to shift the optical absorption edge of TiO2 towards a lower energy, thereby increasing the photoactivity. Among these nonmetal dopants, iodine-doping was paid more attentions owing to altering the surface charge, shifting the photoresponse from UV to visible region and acting as a conduction-band electron scavenger capable of inhibiting the rapid recombination of photoinduced electron-hole pairs [5–17]. Bi2WO6 is thought to be a promising
Sol-Gel-Hydrothermal Synthesis of the Heterostructured - Composite with High-Visible-Light- and Ultraviolet-Light-Induced Photocatalytic Performances
Jiang Zhang,Zheng-Hong Huang,Yong Xu,Feiyu Kang
International Journal of Photoenergy , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/469178
Abstract: The heterostructured TiO2/N-Bi2WO6 composites were prepared by a facile sol-gel-hydrothermal method. The phase structures, morphologies, and optical properties of the samples were characterized by using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. The photocatalytic activities for rhodamine B of the as-prepared products were measured under visible and ultraviolet light irradiation at room temperature. The TiO2/N-Bi2WO6 composites exhibited much higher photocatalytic performances than TiO2 as well as Bi2WO6. The enhancement in the visible light photocatalytic performance of the TiO2/N-Bi2WO6 composites could be attributed to the effective electron-hole separations at the interfaces of the two semiconductors, which facilitate the transfer of the photoinduced carriers.

Molecules , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/molecules18011150
Abstract: Inonotus obliquus is a medicinal mushroom used in Russian and Eastern European folk medicine for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Previous studies in our laboratory have demonstrated that the mycelium powders of I. obliquus possess significant antihyperglycemic effects in a mouse model of diabetic disease induced by alloxan. However, the active ingredients of mycelium powders responsible for the diabetes activity have not been identified. This study aims to identify the active ingredients of I. obliquus mycelium powders by a bioassay-guided fractionation approach and explore the mechanism of action of these active ingredients by using a well-established DPP-4 (an important enzyme as a new therapeutic target for diabetes) inhibitory assay model. The results showed the chloroform extract of mycelium was potential inhibitory against DPP-4. Bioactivity guided fractionation led to the identification of 19 compounds using UPLC-Q-TOF-MS. Molecular docking between the compounds and DPP-4 revealed that compounds 5, 8, 9, 14, 15 may be the active components responsible for the DPP-4 inhibitory activity.

PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0061641
Abstract: Poloxamer 188 (P188), a multiblock copolymer surfactant, has been shown to protect against ischemic tissue injury of cardiac muscle, testes and skeletal muscle, but the mechanisms have not been fully understood. In this study, we explored whether P188 had a protective effect against cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury and its underlying mechanisms. The in vivo results showed that P188 significantly reduced the infarct volume, ameliorated the brain edema and neurological symptoms 24 h after ischemia/reperfusion. In the long-term outcome study, P188 markedly alleviated brain atrophy and motor impairments and increased survival rate in 3 weeks of post stroke period. Additionally, P188 protected cultured hippucampal HT22 cells against oxygen–glucose deprivation and reoxygenation (OGD/R) injury. The ability in membrane sealing was assessed with two fluorescent membrane-impermeant dyes. The results showed that P188 treatment significantly reduced the PI-positive cells following ischemia/reperfusion injury and repaired the HT22 cell membrane rupture induced by Triton X-100. In addition, P188 inhibited ischemia/reperfusion-induced activation of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and leakage of Evans blue. Therefore, the present study concludes that P188 can protect against cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury, and the protection involves multi-mechanisms in addition to the membrane resealing.

微生物学通报 , 2012,
Abstract: Objective] In order to optimize precursor supply for L-valine biosynthesis,a Corynebacterium glutamicum V1 mutant with phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase gene(pepc) in-frame deletion was constructed through crossover PCR and homologous recombination.The effect of pepc knock-out on physiological characteristics of the mutant was investigated.Methods] The upstream and downstream fragments of pepc were cloned from C.glutamicum V1 chromosome and ligated to integration vector.The mutant C.glutamicum V1-Δpepc was screened by homologous recombination.The physiological characteristics of the mutant were investigated by fermentation experiments and enzymes activity measurement of pyruvate carboxylase(PC),pyruvate dehydrogenase(PDH) and pyruvate kinase(PK).The mutant with pepc gene in-frame deletion was screened and confirmed by PCR and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase activity determination.Results] The pepc knock-out resulted in L-argine accumulation to 7.48 g/L and no accumulation of L-valine,which accompanied by increase of PDH activity and PC activity in C.glutamicum V1-Δpepc.The knock-out of pepc gene affected the metabolism of the strain to some extent.Conclusion] Blocking the anaplerotic pathway PEPC participated increased TCA cycle,leading to the increase of L-argine and decrease of amino acids with pyruvic acid as precursor,such as L-valine and alanine.
