    The impregnation of CuCl2 on coconut shell based activated carbon was investigated for efficient formaldehyde removals.Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used for morphology structure observation.Nitrogen adsorption isotherm was employed for pore structure analysis.The surface elements of activated carbon were tested by XPS.XRD was used for analyzing the crystal forms of cupric salt.Dynamic studies of formaldehyde adsorption at room temperature was carried out by adsorption performance test.The results showed that cupric salt existed in three forms,i.e.,Cu,CuCl and CuCl2.The increment of Cu loading leads to the decreasing of surface area and pore volume of activated carbon,and the increasing of average pore diameter.After modification,the surface oxygenated groups on the surface of activated carbon increased.When CuCl2 concentration was 0.5 mol/L,formaldehyde adsorption capacity(4.28 mg/g) of the modified activated carbon was 3.1 times than that of the original one(1.38 mg/g).Adsorption behavior of formaldehyde on modified activated carbons fitted Freundlich adsorption isotherm well.

    A hot filter was added to a 1 kg/h bench-scale continuous bubbling fluidized bed system for the fast pyrolysis of Chinese fir to get bio-oils.The effects of hot filter on the yield and stability of bio-oils were studied.The results indicated that both the yields of pyrolysis oil (without hot filtration) and filtered oil (after hot filtration) increased with the increase of pyrolysis temperature,and decreased after 475 ℃,at which the maximum yields were 58.1% and 50.7%,respectively.The addition of hot filter resulted in lower oil yield (approximate 5%-10% decrease),which became worse when pyrolysis temperature increased.Compared to the pyrolysis-oil Ⅰ,the water content of filtered-oil Ⅰ increased from 13.77% to 15.83%,pH value increased from 2.18 to 2.23,and high-heating value decreased from 20.47 MJ/kg to 19.53 MJ/kg.However,it also showed significant reduction in solids contents,alkali and alkaline earth metals,and the overall decline was about 75%,which suppressed the happening of self-polymerization in bio-oils.During the aging tests,water content and kinematic viscosity of filtered-oil Ⅰ increased by 10.2% and 57.6%,but the fluctuation was less than that of pyrolysis-oil Ⅰ.GC/MS analysis of the bio-oils showed that less fluctuation in composition was observed in the filtered-oil Ⅰ. This indicated a positive impact of the hot filter on the quality of bio-oil.

    The Chinese fir/polypropylene(PP) composites samples were analyzed by FT-IR with KBr pellets method. The characteristic adsorption peaks of Chinese fir were assigned to 1740-1730 cm-1, 1610-1590 cm-1, 1270-1260 cm-1, 1060-1050 cm-1, and 1040-1030 cm-1. The peak of PP at 1377 cm-1 was taken as reference. Correlation analysis was performed between wood flour content and the relative intensities of different spectral peaks and the stepwise multiple linear regression was used to establish the equations. The results showed that the binary linear regression equation with I(1060-1050)/I1377 and I(1270-1260)/I1377 as variables and the ternary linear regression equation based on the variables I(1060-1050)/I1377, I(1040-1030)/I1377 and I(1270-1260)/I1377 possessed better prediction accuracy. There is a strong correlation between FT-IR-predicted wood flour content and referenced wood flour content. The coefficients of determination (Rc2) of calibration exceed 0.98, and the Rp2 of cross validation were above 0.96. The results of external validation showed that linear regression equations had good predictabilities, and the relative deviations of prediction ranged from -7.4% to -0.9%. The results also showed that the prediction accuracy of the ternary linear regression equation was slightly better than that of the binary linear regression equation.

    Alkaline lignin-poly (vinyl alcohol)-urea (AL-PVA-U) film was prepared by crosslinking with formaldehyd (F). The effects of alkaline lignin and formaldehyde on nitrogen release,as well as the release mechanism,were investigated. The films were characterized by XRD and FT-IR-ATR.The result showed that the addition of alkaline lignin limited the release of nitrogen in the film and resulted in an increase of the release balance time.The fastest release rate was observed as alkaline lignin and polyvinyl alcohol as blended with 5:5 ratio,and the maximum release balance time as well as the highest accumulative release rate achieved under this condition represented 192 h and 77.73%, respectively.Proper amount of formaldehyde facilitated the crosslinking among alkaline lignin,polyvinyl alcohol and urea. The formation of linear and reticular structures restricted the release of the nitrogen in the films. Compared with the blend film,the crystallinity of the crossed alkaline lignin-polyvinyl alcohol-urea film decreased.The curve of nitrogen cumulative release rate displayed a S pattern.The correlation coefficients of Ritger-Peppas model and Quadratic polynomial model were 0.950 9 and 0.976 3,respectively.The release index (n) of Ritger-Peppas model was 0.816 7,which indicated that the release mechanism of nitrogen was the comprehensive effects of diffusion and erosion.

    In order to elucidate the chemical association between hemicellulose and lignin in gymnosperm, the linkage between sugar units in hemicellulose and phenylpropane substructure of lignin was analyzed from the perspective of mannose. The mannan precursor D-13C6-mannose, exogenous lignin precursor coniferin, and the inhibitor of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, were injected into a living ginkgo tree (Ginkgo biloba L.) to trace the mannose in the cell wall by 13C and meanwhile inhibit the conversion of mannose to lignin. The results indicate that the mannose units of lignin-carbohydrate complexes (LCC) in newly-formed xylem are labeled successfully by 13C isotope. Moreover, the metabolism of ginkgo tree has not been affected obviously by the addition of the precursors and inhibitor. The specifically 13C-enriched LCCs were isolated from the newly-formed xylem and further hydrolyzed by cellulase and hemicellulase to get enzyme-degraded LCCs (EDLCCs). The analyses of FT-IR and 13C NMR of EDLCCs indicate that the C-6 position of mannose unit in hemicellulose and α-carbon of lignin side chain is linked by benzyl ether bond.

    The adsorption behaviors of creatinine(CR) on coconut-shell activated carbons with different pore structures was investigated,and the relationship between BET surface area/pore size distribution and the adsorption capacity for creatinine was studied.Several kinetic models,such as pseudo-first-order,pseudo-second-order,and intra-particle diffusion kinetic models,were studied on the basis of adsorption data.Results showed that the micropores with pore size of 1-2.5 nm were beneficial for adsorption of CR.The adsorption capacity reached 104 mg/g on the coconut-shell activated carbon with average pore size 2.2 nm. The adsorption capacity of activated carbon for creatinine depended on the combination of the surface area, total pore volume and microporosity. The intraparticle diffusion was not the only rate-determining step.It was found that the adsorption kinetics followed pseudo-second-order kinetic model,which correlation indexes were higher than 0.99.This suggested that the adsorption of CR on activated carbon was a chemisorption process.

    The chemical constituents of n-butanol-insoluble portion of Parochetus communis Buch extract were studied by acetylation.The aerial part of P.communis was extracted by 75% ethanol and the ethanol extract was suspended in distilled water and successively extracted by petroleum ether,ethyl acetate,and n-butanol.The insoluble portion of n-butanol extract was partly acetylated,then various column chromatographic methods were used for the isolation and purification.The chemical structures of compounds were elucidated on the basis of physicochemical properties and spectral date.Six compounds were isolated from n-butanol-insoluble portion of P.communis Buch and identified as β-sitosterol,1-triacontanol,medicarpin and pratol.All compounds were isolated from the medical plant for the first time.In addition,the solubility of n-butanol-insoluble portion was increased and the polarity of the chemical composition was decreased by acetylation.This method provides a new reference for the separation of high-polar compounds in other plant.

    This review mainly illustrates the preparation of chitin nano-fibers by surface anionization and cationization at C2 and C6 accompanied with the subsequent mechanical treatment.A high density of negative charge was formed on the chitin molecules in alkaline aqueous solution after the C6 hydroxyl groups selectively converted into carboxyl groups by TEMPO-mediated oxidation.The chitin crystals could be further dispersed into whiskers/fibers at nano-level.In another method,deacetylation partially occurred at the C2 position of chitin and it caused the exposed NH2 formed positive charge in the acidic condition.The individual nano-fibers were achieved by simple mechanical dispersion with the driving force of electrostatic repulsion among the crystals.
