In order to improve the toughness of shellac(SHL) resin, eleostearic acid(EA) was added to shellac resin through Diels-Alder reaction to prepare toughened shellac(TS) resin, and its structure was analyzed by gel chromatography(GPC), infrared spectroscopy(FT-IR) and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance(13C NMR). And then, tannic acid(TA) was added to prepare SHL-TA, and TS-TA composite coating. The effects of TA and EA on the anti-corrosion properties of shellac resin coating were analyzed by electrochemical workstation, neutral salt water resistance and neutral salt spray(NSS) resistance tests. The results showed that the TS modified by EA through the Diels-Alder reaction exhibited good toughness. When the weight ratio of SHL and EA was 1.8:1, the elongation at break of TS-3 coating was as high as 381.81%. In addition, the hydrophobicity of shellac coating was increased by the modification of EA, and its static water contact angle reached 95.01°.The addition of TA could improve the adhesion of the coating on the metal substrate, and the combined action of TA and EA could enhance the anti-corrosion of SHL coating. The best corrosion protection system was TS-3-TA coating. After immersion in 3.5% NaCl for 48 h, the polarization resistance of the coating was still 36.3 kΩ, far more higher than that of other coatings. And the time of neutral salt water resistance and neutral salt spray(NSS) resistance tests of TS-3-TA, which was prepared in alkali system, was 120 h and 168 h.

Dehydroabietic acid(DA) reacted with 3-glycidyloxypropyltriethoxysilane(GTS) to synthesize dehydroabietic acid-based cross-linking agent(DAG), and then DAG was combined with TiO2, catalyst dibutyltin dilaurate, and hydroxyl polysiloxane(PDMS) to fabricate the TiO2 modified dehydroabietic acid cross-linked the room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber(TiO2-DAG/RTVSR). The microscopic morphology, mechanical properties, thermal stability, and hydrophobicity of the samples were investigated. The results showed that DAG and TiO2 were uniformly dispersed in the dehydroabietic acid cross-linked silicone rubber. Compared with DAG/RTVSR-3 obtained by only adding DAG, when the addition of TiO2 was 7%, the tensile strength of the obtained TiO2-DAG/RTVSR-4 increased from 0.65 MPa to 0.98 MPa which increased by 50.8%, and the elongation at break increased from 250% to 317%.The 5% mass loss temperature of silicone rubber increased from 324.5℃ to 338.8℃ as the addition of TiO2 increased from 0% to 7%; and the swelling degree decreased, which indirectly reflected the increase in the degree of cross-linking.The contact angle gradually decreased with the increasing of TiO2 amount. These results indicated that the synergistic effect of dehydroabietic acid with rigid structure and TiO2 into the molecular chain of silicone rubber could effectively enhance the mechanical properties and thermal stability of room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber.In summary, silicone rubber with 7% TiO2 had the best performance.

An anti-freezing hydrogel electrolyte(SPI-PVA-PAAm/LiCl) was synthesized, in which soybean protein isolates (SPI), ployvinyl alcohol(PVA) and acrylamide(AAm) were used as raw materials, ammonium persulfate(APS) was used as the initiator, N, N'-methylenebisacrylamide(MBAA) was used as the covalent crosslinker, LiCl was used as the electrolyte salt, and N, N, N', N'-tetramethylethylenediamine(TEMED) was used as the accelerator. Under low temperature conditions, the mechanical properties of the hydrogel electrolyte were analyzed, and the electrochemical properties of the solid-state supercapacitor based on this hydrogel electrolyte were investigated. The results showed that the hydrogel electrolyte had excellent anti-freezing propertity, because a certain molar concentration of LiCl reduced the freezing point of pure water in the hydrogel electrolyte and inhibited the crystallization behavior of water molecules. When the environmental temperature was reduced from 25℃ to -20℃, the hydrogel electrolyte still showed good mechanical properties and ionic conductivity. With the increase of the amount of LiCl, the compression performance of the hydrogel electrolyte firstly increased and then decreased, and the ionic conductivity increased. After 10 cycles of 80% compression strain, the stress retention rate, plastic deformation rate and energy loss coefficient of the hydrogel electrolyte with LiCl concentration of 5 mol/L(S-Li-5) were more than 100%, less than 25% and 0.33, respectively. The hydrogel electrolyte with LiCl concentration of 15 mol/L(S-Li-15) and CNTs were used to assemble the solid supercapacitor whose electrochemical performance was evaluated. When the ambient temperature was reduced from 25℃ to -20℃, the specific capacitance of assembled supercapacitor calculated by GCD curve could be maintained above 80%, and 0-70% compression strain could be withstood without damage, and the supercapacitor could still work normally; In addition, when the current density was 8.12 A/g, the capacitance retention rate of the device was higher than 91% after 1 000 cycles at -20℃.

A carbon-based solid acid catalyst(H-Al/AC) containing Brønsted(B) acid and Lewis(L) acid was prepared by H2SO4 sulfonation and AlCl3 immersion using coconut shell activated carbon(AC) as carrier. This catalyst was used to prepare 5-hydroxymethylfurfural(5-HMF) from glucose in a biphasic system(water/2-sec-butylphenol) by hydrothermal rection. The catalyst was characterized by SEM, BET, XRD, NH3-TPD and pyridine infrared to investigate the influence of preparation conditions on the structure and activity of the catalyst. The results showed that the catalyst activity reached the highest after being sulfonated with 98% H2SO4 and immersed in saturated AlCl3 solution for 4 h. The catalyst showed an amorphous carbon structure with the specific surface area of 1 139.31 m2/g, B acid amount 4.213 μmol/g and L acid amount 29.97 μmol/g, respectively. The catalytic performance of the prepared catalyst was investigated for the conversion of glucose to 5-HMF in biphasic system when the ratio of aqueous phase to organic phase was 1:2, and the results showed that the highest 5-HMF yield of 25.14% were obtained at 180℃ for 210 min with 0.025 g of catalyst. The reaction path of glucose conversion to 5-HMF was as follows: glucose was isomerized into fructose under the action of Lewis acid in the aqueous phase. Fructose was dehydrated under the catalysis of Brønsted acid to generate 5-HMF. 5-HMF was extracted into 2-sec-butylphenol(SBP), and the generated water was retained in the aqueous phase. The catalyst cycle stability test showed that the activity of the catalyst was 86% of the initial activity after repeated use for five times.

Abstract ( 20 )   HTML ( 0 )   PDF (6026KB) ( 26 )  

A choline chloride-urea(molar ratio of 1:2) based deep eutectic solvent(DES) system was used as a non-hydrolytic pretreatment media to prepare the cellulose nanofibrils(CNF) from bleached kraft poplar pulp by using microfluidizer. The properties of CNF were characterized by elemental analysis, scanning electron microscope(SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(FT-IR), thermogravimetric analysis and X-ray diffraction analysis. Furthermore, the polymerization degree(DP) of CNF and the energy consumption were calculated. The results showed that DES pretreatment could promote the swelling of pulp fibers, which was beneficial to fibrillation during the microfluidization process. The microfluidization treatment, was performed 15 times. It was found that compared with the energy consumption(4.35×107 kW·h/t) of raw materials without DES pretreatment, the energy consumption(2.44×107 kW·h/t) of raw materials with DES pretreatment decreased by 43.91%. whereas the crystallinity indexes(ICr) of CNF prepared before and after pretreatment were 54% and 44%, respectively. However, DES pretreatment had no obvious effect on the polymerization degree of fiber raw materials. DES pretreatment also reduced the thermal stability of CNF. The increase of homogenization times could promote the fibrillation of fibers, and reduce the crystallinity and polymerization degree of cellulose at the same time. FT-IR analysis showed that choline cations interacted with anionic groups of cellulose fibers through static electricity during DES pretreatment. Elemental analysis showed that nitrogen-containing residues remained in CNFs.
