    Co-liquefaction of biomass(sawdust and rice straw) with plastic(high density polyethylene,HDPE) in sub-and supercritical water(SCW)was investigated using a 500mL stainless-steel autoclave. A series of liquefaction experiments were carried out with biomass and plastic individually and in combination. To obtain basic knowledge about degradation of biomass and plastic into oil, the effects of reaction temperature, reaction time, ratio of water to biomass and polyethylene(PE) and degradation pressure were investigated. At 653K the maximum yield of oil was achieved. At this temperature, the most important parameter for oil yield was biomass/plastic ratio in the feedstock. Yield of oil up to 60% was obtained using 1:4 weight ratio of biomass/PE mixture. Co-liquefaction of biomass with plastic increased the yield of oils. Results showed that addition of biomass to plastic could decrease the degradation temperature of plastic to supply hydrogen, and the synergistic effects of biomass and plastic,could enhance oil yield and ease the requirement of reaction condition.

    Degradation and condensation of milled-wood lignin(MWL) from Jacaranda copaia Aubl.D.Don during kraft cooking in the presence of xylose was investigated. FT-IR and 13CNMRwere used to analyze the structure of the products from kraft cooking. The results indicated that lignin linkages were cleaved easily by kraft cooking, especially α-aryl ether linkages and β-O-4 linkages. New lignin-carbohydrate complexes(LCC) structures were found simultaneously during the breaking of lignin linkages. The newly formed LCC was originated from condensation between lignin intermediates and xylose,mainly from β-O-4 and 5-5' lignin structures, which were connected with xylose through benzyl ether linkage. In addition, this newly formed LCC was very stable against alkali.

    The curing behaviors and kinetics of novolak-type phenolic resin from phenolated wood (PWF) were investigated with DSC. Thermal degradation properties and structure of cured PWF were analyzed by means of TG and FTIR, respectively. The curing reaction of PWF was compared with that of traditional novolak-type phenol formaldehyde resin (PF). The results showed that the amount of curing agent——hexamethylene tetramine (HMTA) had great influence on curing of PWF. When the mass ratio of HMTA and resin was 100:10, apparent activation energy of curing reaction of PWF was 107.76kJ/mol, which was lower than 141.35kJ/mol of PF. There was little effect of curing agent content on the order of curing reaction of PWF, and the order of PWF curing reaction was constantly 0.95, the same as PF's. Curing temperature of PWF was from 135 to 137℃ by extrapolating Tp-β. TG curve of cured PWF followed the similar trend as that of cured PF during the range of 30 to 291℃. Both were thermal stable and had no weight loss before 200℃ and they began to loss weight with further increasing of temperature. The temperatures of thermal degradation of cured PWF and PF were 291 and 296℃, respectively. The structure of cured PWF was nearly similar to that of cured PF confirmed by IR.

    Three titled compounds namely (E)-N'-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)-3,4,5-trimethoxybenzohydrazide (1), (E)-N'- (5-bromo-2-hydroxybenzylidene)-3,4,5-trimethoxybenzohydrazide (2) and (E)-N'-(4-cholobenzylidene)-3,4,5- trimethoxybenzohydrazide (3) have been synthesized, and characterized by IR and 1HNMR.Their crystalline and molecular structures have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Both compounds 1 and 2 belong to monoclinic system, space group P2(1)/c, with a=1.5348(12)nm, b=1.3330(11)nm, c=0.8299(7)nm,α=90.00°,β=99.854(16)°,γ=90.00°, V=1.6730(2)nm3, Z=4, Dc=1.312g/cm3,F(000)=696,R=0.1016, wR=0.1936, for compound 1; a=1.14157(19)nm, b=1.6279(3)nm, c=0.9738(16)nm,α=90.00°, β=100.210(16)°,γ=90.00°,V=1.7144(4)nm3,Z=4, Dc=1.586g/cm3, F(000)=832,R=0.0669,wR=0.0969 for compound 2. Compound 3 belongs to triclinic system, space group P-1, with a=0.5119(2)nm, b=0.8210(4)nm, c=2.0276(9)nm, α=101.055(7)°,β=92.362(7)°,γ=101.459(7)°, V=0.8169(7)nm3,Z=2, Dc=1.418g/cm3,F(000)=364, R=0.0516, wR=0.1276. In the crystals there exist several intermolecular hydrogen bonds, through which one-dimensional infinite-chain structures were formed.
