Carbon is widely studied as an electrical double-layer capacitor (EDLC) electrode material due to its high specific surface area and good electronic conductivity. However, the low capacitance and energy density limit its further commercial applications. Herein, we report a facile and novel synthesis of dilute CoNi alloy nanoparticles embedded into ultramicroporous carbon (CoNi/UMCs) via a template-assisted strategy using SBA-15 as a template. The CoNi alloy serves as not only the electron collector to decrease the conductivity during tests, but also creates CoNi oxide/oxhydroxide on the alloy surface in an alkali solution, promoting redox reactions in pseudocapacitors, enhancing the performance of supercapacitors...

The emergence of drug-resistant fungal strains remains a severe threat for the public health, which prompts strict restrictions on the uses of antifungal drugs. However, the majority of lipophilic fungistatic agents are poorly water soluble with a low oral adsorption characteristic posing challenges for the precise prescriptions. In this study, a natural antimicrobial cationic peptide of epsilon-poly-l-lysine (EPL) decorated ordered mesoporous silica (SBA-15) was facilely prepared for the efficient loading of antifungal itraconazole (ITZ) drugs...

Subambient temperatures are employed in Pluronic-block-copolymer-templated syntheses of many large-pore silicas: SBA-15 (2-D hexagonal with cylindrical mesopores), FDU-12 (face-centered cubic with spherical mesopores), nanotubes and hollow nanospheres. Herein, the origin of a significant temperature dependence of the unit-cell parameter and pore diameter of silicas templated by swollen micelles of Pluronics under subambient conditions was elucidated. The temperature dependence of size of swollen spherical micelles of Pluronic F127 (EO106 PO70 EO106 ) in 2 M HCl solution was studied in 12-25 °C range using dynamic light scattering and was correlated with structure types, unit-cell sizes and pore sizes of silicas synthesized at four silica-precursor/Pluronic ratios with a swelling agent (toluene, ethylbenzene)...

In the present research, a new sample preparation method based on SBA-15 assisted electromembrane extraction coupled with corona discharge ion mobility spectrometer was developed for the determination of Thiabendazole as a model basic pesticide in fruit juice samples. In fact, the addition of SBA-15 in the supported liquid membrane in electromembrane extraction system not only can lead to enhancement of the effective surface area, but also introducing the negatively charged silanol groups into supported liquid membrane might improve migration of positively charged analytes toward the supported liquid membrane and finally into the acceptor solution...

The combined benefits of moisture-stable phosphonic acids and mesoporous silica materials (SBA-15 and MCM-41) as large-surface-area solid supports offer new opportunities for several applications, such as catalysis or drug delivery. We present a comprehensive study of a straightforward synthesis method via direct immobilization of several phosphonic acids and phosphoric acid esters on various mesoporous silicas in a Dean⁻Stark apparatus with toluene as the solvent. Due to the utilization of azeotropic distillation, there was no need to dry phosphonic acids, phosphoric acid esters, solvents, or silicas prior to synthesis...

Extraordinary progress in medicinal inorganic chemistry in the past few years led to the rational design of novel platinum compounds, as well as nonplatinum metal-based antitumor agents, including organotin compounds, whose activity is not based on unrepairable interaction with DNA. To overcome poor solubility and toxicity problems that limited the application of these compounds numerous delivering systems were used (Lila et al. in Biol Pharm Bull 37:206-211, 2014; Yue and Cao in Curr Cancer Drug Targets 16:480-488, 2016; Duan et al...

We apply 2H NMR to investigate water reorientation in mesoporous silica. Using synthesized MCM-41 and purchased SBA-15 materials, we systematically study the dependence on the pore diameter. For a characterization of the properties of the silica matrices, scanning electron microscopy and nitrogen gas adsorption are employed. To ascertain the thermodynamic behavior of the confined water, we utilize differential scanning calorimetry. The dynamical properties are analyzed in a broad temperature range from the weakly to the deeply cooled regime using a combination of 2H spin-lattice relaxation and stimulated-echo experiments...

Hydrogen obtained from biomass derivatives is considered a promising alternative to fossil fuels. The aim of this work is to test the viability of Ni-M/SBA-15 (M: Co, Cu, Cr) catalysts for the hydrogen production from bio-oil aqueous fraction reforming. Tests were performed in a fixed-bed reactor at 600 °C and atmospheric pressure. Firstly, the steam reforming (SR) of acetic acid, hydroxyacetone, furfural and phenol, as representative constituents of the bio-oil aqueous fraction, was carried out. Lower reactivity with increasing carbon number and decreasing steam-to-carbon ratio was observed...

Spherical SBA-15-based metal⁻organic framework (MOF) composite materials were prepared, with nickel as the metal center of MOFs. The materials were characterized via scanning electron microscopy, X-ray fluorescence analysis, X-ray powder diffraction, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, and nitrogen (N₂) adsorption⁻desorption. The methane (CH₄) or N₂ high-pressure adsorption isotherms of the samples were measured and compared. The specific surface area and adsorption capacity of the composite materials were generally higher than the pristine MOFs, but were much lower than the synthesized SBA-15...

In recent years, several novel strategies for speeding up the slow kinetics of the water oxidation reaction have attracted considerable attention for generation of O2. This is particularly important from the environmental perspective. Here we report a SBA-15 type, 2D-hexagonal functionalized mesoporous organosilica material as support for small Ag nanoparticles (NPs) by grafting the silica surface with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane, followed by chemical impregnation of Ag NPs at its surface, to obtain a AgNPs@SBA-NH2 material...

An in situ and facile nanocasting procedure has been developed to embed Rhodium nanoparticles (RhNPs) in mesoporous carbon (MC) matrix via carbonizing β-Cyclodextrin capped RhNPs (β-CDs@RhNPs) as a source of both carbon and metal, in the presence of SBA-15 as hard template. Firstly, β-CDs was used to coat and stabilize the RhNPs, and then coated RhNPs was applied as carbon source during the carbonization step. In this way, biocompatible materials are used as much as possible. The transmission electron microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared, BET surface area and X-ray diffraction devices were used to characterize the nanomaterials...

During the past decade, accumulating studies have been conducted on the mesoporous silica materials as the matrix of controlled drug-delivery, in which the complicated post-synthesis procedures are often involved with the molecular design to achieve the efficacy. In this study, a simplified drug delivery system of anti-cancer drug of doxorubicin (DOX) based on mesoporous SBA-15 functionalized with ferrocenecarboxylic acid (FCA) was constructed. Through a combination of physicochemical characterizations, the presence of FCA that was anchored inside the pore wall of amine groups grafted SBA-15 exhibits electron-accessible behavior without affecting the intactness of composite material...
