    Three kinds of lignocellulosic nanofibrils(LCNF) were prepared from miscanthus straw fiber with the treatment using oxalic acid, maleic acid and citric acid under the condition of high-pressure homogenization. The performances of LCNF were characterized by cold field emission scanning electron microscope(FE-SEM), transmission scanning electron microscope(TEM), X-ray diffraction(XRD) analyzer and thermogravimetric(TG) analyzer. The results showed that polycarboxylic acid pretreatment effectively promoted fiber swelling and weaken the bonding force between fibrils, which was beneficial for the dissociation of microfibrils during the high-pressure homogenization process. The acidity became stronger and the fiber hydrolyzed in the pretreatment process was more intensive when the pKa value of carboxylic acid was smaller, resulting in more uniform size of LCNF. Oxalic acid had the minimum pKa value of 1.25 among there polycarboxylic acids, and the minimum average width of the corresponding prepared LCNF was approximately 15.3 nm. Compared with the raw material of miscanthus straw fiber, high-pressure homogenization could weaken the hydrogen bond occurring in microfibrils, which destroyed partial crystalline area and decreased the crystallinity of LCNF. The crystallinity of O-LCNF, M-LCNF and C-LCNF prepared from oxalic acid, maleic acid and citric acid system was 50.4%, 48.2% and 50.0%, respectively. Under the oxalic acid pretreatment system, the obtained(O-LCNF) exhibited the best thermal stability with the maximum weight loss rate temperature of 353.2 ℃.

    The delignified wood(DW) was impregnated by methyl methacrylate(MMA) to obtain lignin-removed wood/poly(methyl methacrylate)(DW/PMMA) composite material through in-situ polymerization. The properties of DW/PMMA composite materials were investigated. The results showed that the removal ratio of different lignin had a greater impact on the properties of wood, and the impact was more significant with the increasing removal ratio of lignin. The density of DW/PMMA composite was significantly higher than that of non-impregnated wood. Especially when the lignin removal ratio reached a high level(H-DW), the density of the composite material could reach 1.15 g/cm3, which was close to that of pure PMMA. Compared with DW, DW/PMMA had lower volumetric moisture absorption and water absorption expansion coefficient, and incremental volumetric expansion resistance, which indicated that the impregnation of MMA effectively improved the dimensional stability of DW. The DW/PMMA exhibited better mechanical property than that of the untreated wood/PMMA. Dynamic thermomechanical thermal analysis showed that the filling of PMMA effectively increased the rigidity of the prepared composite material.The DW/PMMA composites prepared in this study had excellent dimensional stability and mechanical properties. Among them, the bending strength of L-DW/PMMA impregnated with low lignin removal rate wood(L-DW) was 122.6 MPa, the bending modulus was 10 302.41 MPa, and the compression modulus was 5 492.14 MPa, which was more excellent than that of the untreated wood/PMMA.

    The catalytic hydrogenation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural(HMF) for preparation of 2, 5-bishydroxymethylfuran(BHMF) was studied, using ethanol as hydrogen donor and solvent, and copper and zinc nanoparticles(Cu-Zn/CBD) supported by carbonized sugarcane bagasse(CBD) was used as catalyst. The effects of reaction parameters such as catalyst metal proportion, reaction temperature and reaction time on the reaction of HMF hydrogenation were investigated. The surface morphology and structure of the catalyst were characterized by XRD, SEM and TEM. The elemental valence and content of the catalyst were analyzed by XPS and ICP-OES, and mixture after reaction was analyzed by HPLC. The results showed that the bimetallic Cu-Zn/CBD catalyst exhibited higher catalytic activity than those of single metal catalyst Cu/CBD and Zn/CBD. Under the optimal conditions of the Cu/Zn mass ratio of 2∶1, the reaction temperature of 160 ℃, and the reaction time of 1.5 h, the conversion rate of HMF was 86.5%, and the yield of BHMF was 82.5%. The reusability of catalysts was excellent. After recycling for 5 times, owing to the loss of a small amount of Cu and Zn nanoparticles, the conversion rate HMF and yield of BHMF decreased to 77.3% and 76.8%, respectively.

    Taking the photodegradation of synthetic indigo as a model, the degradation of indigo in dimethyl sulfoxide solvent was studied by UV-Vis spectroscopy, and the effects of mass concentration, illumination time and illumination methods on the degradation of indigo were investigated. The process and products of photodegradation of indigo extract(IE) were further studied. The results showed that the higher the concentration of indigo solution, the faster the degradation rate under natural light conditions was achieved. With the extension of time, the degradation rate of indigo solution was first fast and then slow. The degradation was most obvious in the first 5 days. After 17 days, more than 90% of indigo had been degraded, and the degradation was stopped until the 24th day. The absorbance value at the maximum absorption changed exponentially with time. The effect of ultraviolet light with higher energy on the degradation of indigo solution was stronger than that of sunlight and white flashlight. HPLC analysis showed that the proportion of isatin produced by the degradation of synthetic indigo standard and indigo extract were 56.78% and 85.50%, respectively, which proved that the main product of the degradation of synthetic and natural indigo was isatin.

    The white-rot fungus Trametes sp.48424 was used to pretreat poplar heartwood for the biochemical-mechanical pulp(Bio-CMP). The laccase activity of white-rot fungus during pretreatment was measured, and the changes in the chemical composition of poplar heartwood before and after pretreatment were also analyzed. Moreover, scanning electron microscopy(SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(FT-IR), carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance(13C NMR) were applied to intensively study the degradation mechanism of peplar heartwood by white-rot-fungus. Using Bio-CMP process, the changes of pulp fiber morphology and paper properties were discussed. The results showed that the white-rot fungus could perform solid-state fermentation well on the surface of the heartwood chips, and the laccase activity reached the maximum value of 1.3 IU/mL after 8 day of pretreatment. In the pretreatment stage, the white-rot fungus could lead to a porous and wrinkled surface structrue of the wood chip, and the degradation rate of Klason lignin was higher than that of holocellulose. White-rot fungus pretreatment could cleave β-O-4 side chain(δ 60.6, 72.7) substructure in milled wood lignin(MWL) effectively, while it had little effect on aromatic rings, reflecting that the degradation of lignin by white-rot fungus mainly happened on the lignin side chain. Compared with reference experiment, after poplar heartwood chips being pretreated by white-rot fungus, the fiber length and kinking index of the pulp increased, the content of fines reduced, and the paper strength enhanced obviously.

    Tannic acid(TA) doped polypyrrole(PPy)/cellulose(XWS)(TA/PPy/XWS) supercapacitors electrodes materials were prepared via in situ polymerization on the surface of cellulose, in which TA was used as the electroactive dopant. The effects of each component in the electrodes and the cellulose content on the electrochemical performance of the electrodes were investigated. The results showed that TA could provide pseudocapacitance through reversible redox reaction, which could enhance the specific capacitance of the electrode material. The TA doped PPy particles were coated on the surface of the cellulose, which could expose more active sites to further improve the electrochemical performance of the electrodes. With the increasing cellulose content, the specific capacitance of the electrode increased at first and then decreased. The maximum specific capacitance of the prepared TA/PPy/XWS-30 electrode reached 340.7 F/g at a current density of 0.5 A/g. TA/PPy/XWS-30 was then coated on the filter paper by screen printing to assemble the flexible supercapacitor. The maximum specific capacitance, energy density and power density of the supercapacitor were 90.7 F/g, 8.1 W·h/kg and 705.8 W/kg, respectively. The capacitance retention rate was 73.8% after 5 000 charge-discharge cycles. Besides, the capacitance retention rate remains at 86.4% after 2 500 bending cycles at 180°, which exhibits excellent flexibility and charge-discharge cycling stability. The corresponding performance of the series and parallel connection and instance of lighting an electronic watch demonstrates that the supercapacitor has a good application prospect.

    The proanthocyanidins were extracted by enzymolysis and ultrasonic-assisted coupling extraction method using Taxus cuspidata branches and leaves(TCBL) as the materials. The optimum extraction process was investigated by the single factor experiment and response surface experiment and a proanthocyanidin compound was obtained by extraction and separation. Then, in vitro antidiabetic activities of the fractions isolated from different solvent extract and the ethyl acetate extract by macroporous adsorption resin were studied. The results showed that the optimum process conditions of enzyme and ultrasonic assisted coupling extraction of proanthocyanidins were 60% ethanol aqueous as solvent, enzyme concentration of 0.15 g/L, liquid-solid ratio of 14∶1(mL∶g), enzymolysis time of 50 min, enzymolysis temperature of 40 ℃, and ultrasonic power of 120 W. The extraction yield of proanthocyanidins for one time was 3.84%(extraction rate was 83.48%) under these conditions. Response surface model significance test found that the P value of model was 0.000 2, indicating that the difference was very obvious, the regression equation was effective, and the model had statistical significance. The ethyl acetate extract was separated and purified by AB-8 macroporous adsorption resin, dextran gel, and silica gel column chromatography to obtain a proanthocyanidin compound, which was identified as a dimeric proanthocyanidins of catechin and robinatinol by TOF-MS structure identification and ultraviolet full-wavelength scanning. The anti-diabetes activities of 7 components(CBFr.1-CBFr.7) isolated from different solvent extracts and ethyl acetate extracts by macroporous adsorption resin were studied. The results showed that ethyl acetate extract had a good inhibitory effect on α-amylase activity and α-glucosidase activity, and the inhibition rates were 83.6% and 63.03%, respectively. The median inhibitory concentration(IC50) values of CBFr.1-CBFr.5 for α-amylase were ranging from 0.036 to 0.043 g/L, and they all had a good inhibitory ability to α-amylase. CBFr.3 showed the best inhibitory activity against α-glucosidase, with an IC50 value of 0.04 g/L, which was lower than that of acarbose(0.063 g/L). Analysis showed that CBFr.1-CBFr.4 had better α-glycosidase enzyme inhibition activity and moderate α-amylase inhibitory activity, which could achieve the effect to lower blood sugar and reduce side effects owing to excessive reduction of α-amylase activity. Therefore, CBFr.1-CBFr.4 could be used as type Ⅱ diabetes inhibitors.

    In order to establish a simple and effective processing method to reduce the bitterness of Bletilla striata (Thunb. ex A. Murray) Rchb.f., response surface methodology was used to explore the best optimum conditions of hot water rinsing B. striata fresh stem slices. Taking the content of 1, 4-bis[4-(glucoseoxy) benzyl]-2-isobutyl malate(militarine) as the index the effects of hot water rinsing temperature, rinsing time and pH value on the militarine content in B. striata were investigated by a single factor experiment, and the rinsing was optimized by Box-Behnken response surface analysis. The optimum conditions were obtained as follows: rinsing temperature of 95 ℃, rinsing time of 50 min, hot water pH of 6.5.Under these optimized conditions, the mass fraction of militarine decreased by 63.55% in parallel experiments, and the mass fraction of militarine in the fresh stem slices of B. striata reduced 83.10% after three rinses. Rinsing B. striata fresh stem slices with hot water for 1-3 times could significantly reduce the content of militarine under optimum conditions.

    Using the roles of deep eutectic solvents(DES) in the molecularly imprinted polymers(MIP) as the main line, the roles of different components of DES in the preparation process of MIP were summarized. DES was used as the template molecule to enhance its water solubility, and make the synthesized MIP with good selectivity. DES could be used as the functional monomer or auxiliary functional monomer to increase the binding site with template molecules and effectively improve the affinity of the target. As the pore-forming agent, DES could reduce environmental pollution and improve pore permeability. DES was used as eluent to realize the advantages of environmental friendliness and low cost separation. DES could also modify the support of imprinted molecules on the surface, so that the required functional groups could be obtained after the support surface was loaded with DES, which was conducive to the preparation of molecule-imprinted polymers and could improve the adsorption performance of molecule-imprinted polymers. Meanwhile, a theoretical basis and development direction for the application of DES in the future green separation of molecular imprinting technology(MIT) was prospected.

    Oleocanthal(OC) is a secondary metabolite of olive oil. Currently, it has become one of the research hotspots in abroad, while domestic attention is less. The relevant research foundation is weaker in China, and the big gap with foreign countries is obvious. As an important active ingredient discovered in recent years, OC has a stronger anti-inflammatory activity than that of ibuprofen, and it had preventive and therapeutic effects on various diseases originating from inflammation, such as rheumatic diseases, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, etc. At the same time, its excellent neuroprotective function also promote OC to inhibit the occurrence of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. This review focuses on an in-depth introduction to the biological activities including anti-inflammatory activity and anticancer activity(including melanoma, multiple myeloma, breast and colon cancer), neuroprotection, cardiovascular protection, and the prevention and therapeutic effects of diabetes, and the current efficient extraction and separation methods of OC were also analyzed, including liquid-liquid extraction separation method, high performance countercurrent chromatography extraction method, high vacuum assisted extraction method and centrifugal partition chromatography method. Meanwhile, different factors affecting OC contents were comprehensively discussed, and its research progress in bioavailability was explored. Finally, the future research of OC was prospected.
