Nanozymes are a kind of nanomaterials with enzyme-like activity. Since they were first discovered in 2007, nearly a thousand kinds of nanomaterials with different compositions have been found to have enzyme-like activity. They exhibit similar enzymatic reaction kinetics and catalytic mechanisms to natural enzymes and can be used as a good substitute for natural enzymes. Due to the enzyme-like activity and the advantages of multifunctionality, economy, stability, and easy to scale production, nanozymes have shown good application prospects in the rapid detection of pathogenic microorganisms and the prevention or treatment of infectious diseases. Therefore, nanozymes are regarded as a new type of biosafety material. This article reviews the application of nanozymes in detecting and killing of bacteria and viruses in recent years, and provides a basis for the development of diagnostic and anti-pathogenic microbial treatment strategies based on nanozyme when responding to major biosafety threats and preventing biosafety hazards.

Directed self-assembly (DSA) emerges as one of the most promising novel patterning techniques and has been listed as a candidate for the next generation of lithography by the international roadmap for devices and systems (IRDS). DSA is capable of breaking through the diffraction limit of conventional photolithography, producing high-resolution patterning. Due to the significant advantages such as high throughput and low cost, DSA has become a research hotspot in the semiconductor industry. Combined with other lithographies such as extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography, deep ultraviolet (DUV) lithography, ultraviolet lithography, and nanoimprint lithography (NIL), DSA can improve the resolution of the patterning as well as the density of the device. DSA has been employed to fabricate a series of nanoscale devices such as fin field-effect transistor (FinFET), bit patterned media (BPM), and memory, offering varied configurations for high-density integration and cost-efficient manufacturing. This review systematically illustrates the principle, materials, processing, and application of DSA, and further discovers the opportunities and challenges as well in the process of industrialization.

As the third generation of new concept solar cells, perovskite solar cells have the advantages of high photoelectric conversion efficiency, low-cost and flexible processing. They have been developed rapidly in recent years. Their photoelectric conversion efficiency has increased from 3.8% at the beginning to 25.5% in the near future. They are gradually comparable to silicon cells and have been close to the level of commercial application. At present, the key link to realize the industrial application of perovskite solar cells is battery packaging. It can not only solve the stability problem of perovskite photovoltaic devices, but also meet the requirements of battery safety, environmental protection and prolonging service life. Combined with the development status of perovskite photovoltaic cell packaging materials and packaging technology in recent ten years, this paper introduces the achievements and shortcomings in the field of perovskite cell packaging, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the existing packaging technologies, as well as their applicable different device types. Under different temperature and humidity conditions, the effects of different packaging material properties and packaging process conditions on the efficiency and stability of perovskite battery are compared, and three key factors affecting the packaging effect of perovskite battery thin film are summarized: elastic modulus of polymer, water vapor transmittance and processing temperature. The suitable processing temperature, advantages and disadvantages and processing cost of different polymer film packaging materials are compared. It can be seen that with the strong growth of industrial demand for perovskite photovoltaic cells and the deepening of people's research on their packaging materials, it will be an inevitable trend to study new functional polymer packaging materials suitable for large-scale production and photovoltaic building integration.

Lithography enabled nanoscale fabrication in the semiconductor industry; Its resolution and accuracy directly determined the integration, reliability, and cost of integrated circuits. Lithography is a micro-processing technology that uses the solubility switch of photoresists upon the exposure of ultraviolet light or electron beam, to transfer the pre-designed patterns on the mask to the substrate. With the continuous advancement of light sources used in semiconductor processing, from g-line and i-line to KrF (248 nm) and then to ArF (193 nm), the photoresist is also constantly developing to meet requirements of sensitivity, transmittance, and resistance to etching. Nowadays, extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography has been recognized as the next generation of photo-lithography technology; however, the corresponding photoresist is still facing substantial challenges. This article will briefly review the development of lithography light sources and the historical changes in corresponding photoresists; and then discuss the challenges, such as sensitivity, resolution, and etching resistance for EUV photoresists. Based on this, the future development direction of EUV photoresists is proposed.

Chinese Journal of Applied Chemistry    2022, 39 (4): 540-558.   DOI: 10.19894/j.issn.1000-0518.210461

The methods for synthesizing methanol from methane include indirect method and direct catalytic oxidation method, but the indirect method requires high equipment, and the methane conversion rate and methanol selectivity are not ideal. Direct catalytic oxidation method (DMTM) can produce methanol with high selectivity through a one-step reaction, and has huge application potential. For DMTM, the homogeneous catalytic system usually requires a special reaction medium combined with a precious metal catalyst. Although the reaction efficiency is high, it is corrosive to the reaction equipment, the product is not easy to separate, and the application prospect is poor. Liquid phase-heterogeneous catalysis generally uses H2O2 as the oxidant, Au, Pd, Fe, Cu and other metal elements as the main active component of the catalyst, and·OH is the main oxidation active substance, which can be used at low temperature to realize the activation and oxidation of methane. Therefore, heterogeneous catalytic systems are currently the mainstream of research. Gas phase-heterogeneous catalysis mainly uses O2 and N2O as oxidants. The former is more active, and the latter is more selective for products. In addition, H2O in anaerobic systems can also be directly used as oxygen donors, commonly Cu, Fe, Rh, etc. elements are used as catalysts. Zeolite molecular sieves are the most widely used support, and metal oxides, metal organic frameworks (MOFs) and graphene are also involved. Multi-metal synergistic catalysis has achieved good results. This article mainly summarizes the research on the direct catalytic oxidation of thermally catalyzed methane to methanol in recent years, and prospects for future research directions.

Chinese Journal of Applied Chemistry    2021, 38 (6): 685-692.   DOI: 10.19894/j.issn.1000-0518.200320
Abstract1371)      PDF (1095KB)(448)      
A kinetic study on the oxidation of oxalic acid by nitric acid using Mn 2+ as the catalyst was carried out to clarify the reaction mechanism and reaction process, and optimize the process conditions. By investigating the influence of concentrations of oxalic acid and nitric acid on the reaction process, the initial kinetic rate equation of the reaction is obtained: -d c(H 2C 2O 4)/d t= kc 0.7840(H 2C 2O 4) c 0.3192(HNO 3), and the reaction rate constant is k=3.0×10 -3 (mol/L) -0.1032/min at 393 K. The results show that when the Mn 2+ concentration is in the range of 0.008~0.020 mol/L, the reaction order of Mn 2+ is 0.6742 and the increase of concentrations of Mn 2+ and sodium nitrite promotes the initial consumption rate of oxalic acid. On this basis, the possible reaction mechanism is speculated, and it is believed that Mn 2+ promotes the production of nitrous acid, and the secondary oxidation and reduction of nitrite and oxalic acid promote the decomposition of oxalic acid.

Formate dehydrogenase (FDH) is a D-2-hydroxy acid dehydrogenase, and catalyzes the oxidation of formate to carbon dioxide, coupled with reduction of NAD +(oxidized nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)) to NADH (reduced NAD) that plays a key role in the process of NADH regeneration. In order to obtain highly active formate dehydrogenase mutants, the Candida boidinii formate dehydrogenase CbFDH C23S was used as the parent to conduct two rounds of directional evolution, and a mutant M2 was obtained. The specific activity of M2 is about 4 times more than the parent and M2 and is more suitable for coenzyme regeneration under physiological conditions. Then, the molecular mechanism of the temperature characteristic and the catalytic efficiency change was preliminarily elucidated by the computer aided method. Finally, with the help of the co-expression strategy, the expression level of mutant M2 in Escherichia coli is further improved, and the formate dehydrogenase activity in the ultrasonic lysate reaches 45.85 U/mL, which is far higher than the expression level of the parent single copy. This study laid a theoretical foundation for the green biosynthesis of food additives such as chiral alcohols and amino acid derivatives catalyzed by FDH coupling to enhance the regeneration capacity of NADH, reduce the regeneration cost of NADH, and achieve high efficiency and low cost.

Since the birth of the integrated circuit chip for more than half a century, the chip size has been continuously reduced, and the photolithography technology represented by extreme ultraviolet (EUV) has also developed significantly. At the same time, more advanced photoresist materials are needed to achieve higher precision photolithography patterns. Traditional polymer photoresist materials are limited in their use due to their large relative molecular mass, high-precision stripes and easy collapse. New photoresist materials with small relative molecular mass and uniform structure represented by molecular glass and inorganic metal complex photoresist have been widely developed at home and abroad. This article reviews the current development status and trends of new photoresist materials.

Graphene quantum dots (GODs) are a kind of novel carbon-based zero-dimensional materials, which can be regarded as extremely small graphene fragments. GQDs possess unique 2D structure, quantum confinement effect and edge effect, which is similar to graphene materials. GQDs have many advantages, such as unique photoluminescence property, low toxicity, high fluorescent stability and high biocompatibility, which result in extensive applications of GQDs, including detection, sensing, catalysis, cellular-imaging, drug delivery and pollution control. The synthesis methods of GQDs could be divided into top-down and bottom-up. The mechanism of the top-down method is cutting large-size materials like graphene, graphite and carbon materials into smaller sizes to obtain GQDs, while the mechanism of the bottom-up method is synthesizing GQDs using different precursors through the hydrothermal method or pyrolysis. Citric acid (CA) is a kind of the most popular precursors used in synthesis of GQDs through the bottom-up method. In the recent years, lots of research related to synthesis of GQDs by using CA as precursors are published. In this study, many CA-based synthesis methods of heterogeneous GQDs and their applications are introduced.

As the next generation of lithography technology, extreme ultraviolet lithography has been given the mission of saving Moore′s law by the industry. Extreme ultraviolet photoresist is one of the core sub-technologies of extreme ultraviolet lithography. The inspection of its resolution, roughness, sensitivity and outgassing conditions is a necessary condition for the development of extreme ultraviolet photoresist and it is also an important part to optimize the resist performance.

According to related research and development needs, an extreme ultraviolet photoresist inspection platform based on this method has been established in Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility(SSRF). By continuously improving the stability of the device, developing independent beam splitting grating mask manufacturing technology, and constantly exploring and optimizing the corresponding interference exposure process, the current inspection resolution has reached below 20 nm, which basically meets the corresponding requirements for the 7 nm process node of extreme ultraviolet lithography.

High-density polyethylene (HDPE)/boron nitride (BN) composites with higher thermal conductivity were prepared by melt blending. Through the study of phase morphology, thermal, rheological and mechanical properties and thermal conductivity, the influence of the BN content on the properties of HDPE/BN composites was discussed. The results show that the BN particles gradually aggregate to form heat conduction channels with the increase of the mass content of BN. When the mass content of BN is increased to 30%, the thermal conductivity of the HDPE/BN composite reaches 1.00 W/(m·K) and is increased by 156% compared with pure HDPE. At the same time, the elastic modulus of the composites is increased by 75%, the cold crystallization temperature increases 1.5 ℃, and the melt viscosity and modulus are increased twice compared to pure HDPE. It is proved that BN not only improves the rheological properties and cold crystallization of HDPE, but also increases the thermal conductivity and elastic modulus.

Electron beam lithography (EBL) is a promising candidate for the next-generation lithography, which has a significant competitive advantage in micro/nano fabrication, especially in lithography mask manufacturing. Development is one of the most critical steps in the lithography procedure. The development of high-performance photoresists and optimization of the best developing conditions are the basis of improving the efficiency of electron beam lithography. Based on the previous studies on carbon dioxide (CO 2)-based polycarbonate resists, herein, we further explore the positive CO 2-based poly(cyclohexene carbonate) (PCHC) and its electron beam lithography performance according to development process. The effects of development conditions, including developer, developing temperature and time were systematically explored. The optimal developer ( n-hexane), and developing condition (0 ℃/30 s) were screened out, under which, the sensitivity, contrast, and resolution of PCHC are 208 μC/cm 2, 3.06, and 53 nm, respectively. This performance is better than that of the commercial PMMA-950k EBL resist (with a resolution of 62 nm) under the same exposure conditions. We hope this study could provide a new type of electron beam resist with excellent performance and low cost for scientific research institutes and semiconductor fabrication.

DNA denaturation by thermal melting is critical for DNA amplification and detection. However, the uneven heat distribution and temperature change hinders its application in DNA amplification and detection. It's highly desired to explore a fast and efficient approach to regulating DNA degeneration. In this paper, we propose to apply acid, instead of thermal melting, to accelerate the DNA denaturation by regulating DNA conformation quickly and precisely via protonation of cytosine. We find that the thermodynamic properties of DNA highly depend on its molecular conformation. Furthermore, compared with traditional thermal method, pH method significantly increases the rate of DNA denaturation by more than 6 times. We further found that the mechanism of the pH control method to improve DNA denaturation by rapidly decreasing the enthalpy of double-stranded DNA (160 kJ/mol), and hope that this method can be used in applications of DNA amplification and detection.

Liquid phosphorus-31 (31P) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is one of the major analytical technique for the characterization of soil organic phosphorus (Po) species at the molecular level, and usually requires to extract soil Pousing NaOH-EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) solution before the spectrum is collected under high pH (pH=13) conditions. However, soil Pomay be hydrolyzed under high pH conditions, which affects the accuracy of the P-NMR measurements. Furthermore, the pH of soils usually ranges from 6 to 8, and thus it is necessary to explore the differences in the spectra of Pocompounds under different pH conditions. Typical P compounds including D-glucose-6-phosphate disodium (D-G-6-P), 5′-adenosine monophosphate (5′AMP) and sodium dihydrogen phosphate standards were selected for this study under different pH conditions. The results show that the pH change significantly affects spectral features of the investigated Pocompounds. For D-G-6-P, the shape and peak positions of the NMR spectra both change under varied pH conditions, but pH mainly affects the position of 5′AMP and NaH2PO4absorption peaks. D-G-6-P has α-and β-forms in solutions, and transforms into glucose phosphate, mannose phosphate, fructose phosphate and saccharinic acid phosphate, but it mainly exists as 3-hydroxy-2-oxopropyl phosphate and saccharinic acid after degradation, accounting for more than 50% of the total content, at high pH. For 5′-adenosine monophosphate, there are three conformations of 5′AMP in the solution. The resolved peak at high pH probably results from the hydrolysis of 5′AMP to produce orthophosphate, while for NaH2PO4, the existence of and at low and high pH values leads to changes in the peak shift in the spectra. Overall, the extraction of Pousing NaOH-EDTA solution with high pH may significantly change the speciation of Po, and thus induce the changes in their spectra. This study provides theoretical bases for the comprehensive understanding of soil PoNMR spectra and the development of new method to characterize soil Po speciation at pH values approaching natural soil pH ranges.

Liquid crystal elastomer is a kind of cross-linked polymer network in which anisotropic rigid mesogenic units are connected in the polymer network. Its special structure organically combines the elasticity of rubber with the anisotropy of liquid crystal, resulting in special optical and physical properties. Through the modification of 3D printer based on melting deposition technique the accurate ink direct writing technology of liquid crystal elastomer is realized. In this process, the rigid mesogenic units are directly written into the three-dimensional structure with controllable molecular sequence. The arrangement order of mesogens is set by printing path, and different arrangement order can achieve different stimulus response performance. Based on Michael addition reaction, liquid crystal macromolecular precursor ink was prepared and its rheological properties were adjusted so that it could be extruded with a fine needle with a diameter of 0.25 mm, and the printing samples with regular morphology and highly oriented mesogens were obtained by matching with printing parameters. When heated, the aligned single LCE fiber can achieve more than 40% reversible shrinkage along the printing direction. The structure with controlled geometry and stimulus response can achieve thermal deformation and unlimited thermal motion. In addition to the simple thermal deformation behaviors such as bending, bulge, helix, etc., the printing parameters can be adjusted to achieve flea like jumping, thermal springing and unlimited thermal rolling. This discovery makes 4D printed liquid crystal elastomer samples no longer limited to a simple driver, but a soft robot with intelligent bionic behavior. Through 4D printing mass production software robot can realize intelligent bionics, transportation, exploring unknown environment and other applications.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as a kind of inorganic-organic hybrid materials have potential applications in many fields due to their diverse structures and unique functionalities. In particular, liquid phase epitaxial layered MOFs films (called SURMOFs films, SURMOFs) have attracted much attention due to their controllable thickness, optimal growth orientation and uniform surface. This article summarizes the liquid phase epitaxy (LPE) layers of assembly MOFs thin film technology and methods, such as layer-by-layer (LBL) dipping method, LBL pump method, layer spray method and LBL spin coating method. The article also introduces the classical SURMOF layers of HKUST-1 assembly strategy and its related applications in photoluminescence, photochromic, photocatalytic and electrocatalysis. As one of the classical MOF materials, HKUST-1 has a wide range of applications in photoelectric field, and it has the unique properties: it can be used as a luminous carrier to achieve good optical properties; it has the advantage of unique Cu catalytic active site and can effectively degrade pollutants; it has potential applications in electronic devices because of its dielectric properties. Since SURMOF HKUST-1 has unique properties in many fields, it also faces some challenges: it needs to simplify the process of film synthesis; the structure of thin films and the mechanism of electrocatalysis also need further study; methods for reducing HKUST-1 internal resistance which can increase the conductivity also need to be improved. SURMOFs still has a long way to go for large-scale industrial applications and expansion to other unexplored areas.

Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) was used to measure the hydrodynamic radius ( R H) of two classic conjugated polymers (poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylene vinylene, MEH-PPV and poly(3-hexylthiophene), P3HT) in different solvents. It is found that the R H of the two polymers in various solvents is linear with the maximum absorption wavelength ( λ max) for the same polymer. We construct a mixed solvent system using good and bad solvents, and investigate the relationship between R H and λ max for MEH-PPV in a specific solvent mass by regulating the volume fraction of bad solvents. It is investigated that R H and λ max show a linear relationship in the presence of aggregation and conformational collapse. Furthermore, we study the absorption spectra and corresponding R H of MEH-PPV oligomers containing only four repeating units in a tetrahydrofuran-pure water mixture, and the λ max still remains red-shifted with increasing the proportion of non-solvent water. According to the above research work, it can be known that the absorption maximum for conjugated polymers in dilute solution is associated with the hydrodynamic radii of individual fluorophores that can be made of either the single-chain polymer or the polymer aggregate.

Biosafety has seriously threatened the survival and development of human beings. Under the situation of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic and the normalization of anti-epidemic, biosafety prevention and control is becoming more and more important, which is directly related to the development of society, economy and politics. At the beginning of COVID-19 epidemic, there was a serious lack of personal protective equipment, due to the shortage of medical emergency supplies and the lack of ability to public health emergencies. In the face of the severe challenge of the epidemic, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation is the key to scientific epidemic prevention. The characteristics of the material, such as optical, electrical, acoustic, magnetic, thermal, are helpful for the design and preparation of multi-functional new materials, which can meet the requirements of biosafety prevention in detection, prevention and treatment. We should give full play to the advantages of biosafety and materials science. Using new biosafety materials to overcome the shortcomings of traditional materials can improve or provide new detection methods. Not only can we use biosafety materials to develop a variety of highly effective, low toxicity drugs and vaccines, but also to produce multifunctional masks and protective clothing. What we have done has contributed to the preparation of medical emergency supplies and to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, the toxicity of new biosafety materials can not be ignored. Only by accelerating industrialization based on basic research and practical problems can we better cope with other emerging outbreaks of infectious diseases in the future.

Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries are one of the promising next-generation energy storage technologies due to their high theoretical specific capacity and energy density. However, in practical applications, low conductivity of sulfur and lithium sulfide, dissolution of polysulfides (LIPSs), and poor conversion of LIPSs to Li2S2/Li2S result in the short lifespan and low rate performance of Li-S batteries. Recent studies show that single-atoms (SAs) with superior catalytic activities are ideal anchoring centers and catalytic sites for LIPSs. Modification of cathodes and separators with SAs helps to adsorb polysulfide, improve reaction kinetics and inhibit the shuttle effect. In addition, introduction of SAs into the anode can significantly improve the reversibility of Li deposition/stripping and inhibit the growth of dendrites. In this paper, we review the research progress of SAs in lithium-sulfur batteries, including material synthesis, characterization methods, application direction and catalytic mechanism. Finally, the key challenges and future developmental trends of SAs are summarized and discussed.
