Determination of resorcinol on glassy carbon electrode modified by carbon nanotube and its application in wastewater analysis

Abstract about interesting chemistry news articles for adsorptive stripping method for the determination of resorcinol on multi-walled carbon nanotube modified glassy carbon electrode (MWNT-GCE) was developed. Cyclic voltammetry was used in the study of the electrochemical behavior of resorcinol on MWNT-GCE. The sharp peak of resorcinol appeared at 0.6 V (vs. Ag/AgCl) with the differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). The experimental parameters were optimized. Anodic peak currents were linear over the resorcinol concentrations in the range of 5.5×10-5-3.3×10-3 g L-1 with a detection limit of 1.1×10-5 g L-1 and relative standard deviations of 3.30-6.94% for 7 determinations. The interference of organic and inorganic species on the voltammetric response was also tested. The proposed method was applied to the determination of resorcinol in tap water and simulative wastewater samples with an average recovery of 95.2-104.8%.

Synthesis and characterization of Fire retarded poly (DAMT -co-acrylonitrile)

Abstract In this paper diethoxy-acrylamide methoxyl thiophosphate (DAMT) was synthesized with the reaction N-hydroxymethyl acrylamide and O, O-diethyl phosphorochloridothioate catalyzed by cuprous chloride in presence of triethylamine, and the flame retarded poly (DAMT-co-acrylonitrile) was obtained though free-radically copolymerized process. The properties of copolymer were estimated by Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) values and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The results showed that the LOI value of copolymer with 20 wt% percentage of DAMT coule reach 27vol%.

Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) is widely used in many aspects because it is easily processed into products of various shape with well flexibility and retention at break to meet the requirements of versatile and advanced applications. However, the combustion of PAN is very easy when it is ignited, which makes it difficult to be used in some ways. Thus, the flame retardant PAN is required …

Electrostatic self assembly and characterization of ultra thin films of a secondary diazo dye

  1. Dey, S.A. Hussain, D. Bhattacharjee
    (Department of Physics, Tripura University, Suryamaninagar-799130, India)AbstractIn this communication characterization of Electrostatic Layer by Layer (ELBL) Self Assembled films of secondary diazo dye Congo Red (CR) by alternate adsorption of Poly (allyl amine hydrochloride) (PAH) and CR is reported. The UV-Vis absorption spectra and second derivative analysis of ELBL films revealed the formation of J aggregate of CR molecules in the films. The film growth without any material loss, during subsequent deposition was evident from the Layer effect study of the ELBL PAH-CR films. About 10 minutes of time was required to complete the interaction between CR and PAH molecule in a single bi-layer of ELBL film. Theoretical correlation of the experimental adsorption kinetics data for PAH-CR ELBL films was found to follow second order adsorption kinetic equation. The pH of solution was observed to influence the adsorption process of CR in the

Abstract A convenient method to synthesize 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl) benzimidazole with substituent(s) X (X=H, NH2, SO3H, CH2OH, ArN=N, mono-bromide and di-bromide ) via the reaction of substituted salicylaldehyde and o-phenylenediamine in the presence of manganese (Ⅲ) acetate was reported. The corresponding photo-physical properties were characterized by ultraviolet absorption and fluorescence spectra in methanol. Meanwhile, the fluorescent characteristics of these compounds were investigated on the basis of excited-state intramolecular proton transfer mechanism. Stokes’ shift and quantum yield were also derived.

Abstrasct A new chromogenic reagent, 2-(2-quinolylazo)-5-dimethylaminoaniline (QADMAA) was synthesized. A sensitive, selective and rapid method for the determination of palladium based on the rapid reaction of palladium(II) with QADMAA was developed. In the presence of 0.5-2.5 mol/L of hydrochloric acid solution and cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTMAB) medium, QADMAA reacts with palladium to form a violet complex of a molar ratio 1:2 (palladium to QADMAA). The molar absorptivity of the chelate is 1.35× at 600 nm. Beer’s law is obeyed in the range of 0.01~ 0.6 m g/ml. The relative standard deviation for eleven replicate sample of 0.2 m g/ml level is 1.02 %. This method had been applied to the determination of …

Abstract  Molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs) for ciprofloxacin were synthesized using methacrylic acid as a functional monomer and trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate(TRIM) as a cross-linker. The binding property and recognition selectivity were studied by equilibrium binding test. The MIP showed high selectivity and specificity to ciprofloxacin, separation factor a=2.03. Scatachard analysis indicated that two kinds of sites were formed in MIP for ciprofloxacin and the imprinting mechanism was discussed.
Keywords  molecularly imprinted polymer;Ciprofloxacin;Molecular recognition

    Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are produced by forming a polymer around a molecule that is used as a template (print molecule). After removal of the print molecule, the polymer can be used as a selective binding medium for the print molecule or structurally related compounds. MIPs have been made selective for a large variety of compounds and have

Abstract A new method to immobilize b-galactosidase on chitosan was proposed with 2, 4, 6-trichloro-1, 3, 5-triazine as crosslinking reagent for the first time. Under the best immobilization conditions, the mean activity yield of the immobilized enzyme determined was 47%, which was much higher than that obtained from glutaraldehyde method. Besides, this new method with 2, 4, 6-trichloro-1, 3, 5-triazine as crosslinking reagent was mild, reliable and reproducible, and the coupling reagent used was much cheaper than glutaraldehyde.
