Freeze-concentrated layers as a unique field for the formation of hydrogels

Sekine, Yurina; Nankawa, Takuya

Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan, 96(10), p.1150 - 1155, 2023/10

The phase separation of ice crystals and solutes and bound water that occurs during freezing can be used as a reaction field to control a hierarchical structure of hydrogels. Here, we present a study of carboxymethyl cellulose nanofiber (CMCF) hydrogels formed using the solid-quasi liquid phase separation. CMCF hydrogels were formed simply by adding citric acid to frozen CMCF and thawing the mixture. It was found that rearrangement of CMCF structures via hydrogen bonding proceeds in the freeze concentration layer before the ice crystals melt. Under freeze concentration, CMCF and bound water are confined at high concentrations. The crosslinking reaction in such a unique space contributed to the formation of CMCF hydrogel with high mechanical strength. We discuss the gelation behavior and properties of freeze crosslinked CMCF hydrogels and their applications.

Kinetic mass transfer behavior of Eu(III) in nitrilotriacetamide-impregnated polymer-coated silica particles

Miyagawa, Akihisa*; Hayashi, Naoki*; Kuzure, Yoshiaki*; Takahashi, Takumi*; Iwamoto, Hibiki*; Arai, Tsuyoshi*; Nagatomo, Shigenori*; Miyazaki, Yasunori; Hasegawa, Kenta; Sano, Yuichi; et al.

Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan, 96(7), p.671 - 676, 2023/07

We investigated the distribution mechanism of Eu(III) in a single polymer-coated silica particle including nitrilotriacetamide (NTA) extractants known as HONTA and TOD2EHNTA. The present study provides a valuable approach for the evaluation and enhancement of the functionality of "single extractant-impregnated polymer-coated silica particle".

Advances in hazardous metal ion removal are essential for wastewater clean-up to tackle the global water shortage crisis. Here, we report a Pb-selective adsorbent using a Tb oxalate framework (TOF) synthesized by a one-pot hydrothermal method. The TOF has a two-dimensional sheet structure, in which the interlayer space functions as an ion exchangeable site. Sorption tests using a mixed-ion solution containing Pb$$^{2+}$$, Cd$$^{2+}$$, Mn$$^{2+}$$, Co$$^{2+}$$, Ni$$^{2+}$$, Cu$$^{2+}$$, Na$$^{+}$$, K$$^{+}$$, Mg$$^{2+}$$, and Ca$$^{2+}$$ showed that the TOF has high selectivity for Pb$$^{2+}$$ among other metal ions. The saturated adsorption capacity of the TOF for Pb$$^{2+}$$ was 276 mg g$$^{-1}$$, which is higher than that of conventional adsorbents. Furthermore, the TOF exhibited reversible Pb$$^{2+}$$ adsorption/desorption and could be used for at least three cycles. The results showed that TOF has excellent potential as an adsorbent for removing Pb$$^{2+}$$, and because of its reusability, it is also a promising material for wastewater clean-up.

We demonstrate that pKa of extractant impregnated in a polymer phase varies with the cross-linking degree and the coexistence of other extractants, which induces a change in the hydrophobicity of the polymer phase. The results presented herein will be beneficial for the development of novel solid-extraction adsorbents.

In this work, the mechanisms responsible for the adsorption of molybdate ions on alumina are investigated using in-depth surface analyses carried out on alumina specimens immersed in solutions containing different molybdate ions at different pH values. The obtained results reveal that when alumina is immersed in an acidic solution containing molybdate ions, the hydroxyl groups present on the surface are removed to generate positively charged sites, and molybdate ions (MoO$$_{4}$$$$^{2-}$$ or AlMo$$_{6}$$O$$_{24}$$H$$_{6}$$$$^{3-}$$) are adsorbed by electrostatic interaction. Alumina dissolves slightly in an acidic solution to form AlMo$$_{6}$$O$$_{24}$$H$$_{6}$$$$^{3-}$$, which is more easily desorbed than MoO$$_{4}$$$$^{2-}$$. Furthermore, the enhancement in the Mo adsorption or desorption property may be achieved by enriching the surface of the alumina adsorbent with many -OH groups and optimizing Mo solution to adsorb molybdate ions on alumina as MoO$$_{4}$$$$^{2-}$$ ions. These findings will assist researchers in engineering more efficient and stable alumina-based adsorbents for molybdenum adsorption used in medical radioisotope ($$^{99}$$Mo/$$^{99m}$$Tc) generators.

Competitive binding of binary mixed counterions to the headgroups of adsorbed surfactant films has been investigated at solution surfaces by total reflection X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectroscopy. The obtained extended XAFS $$chi$$ spectra for bromide counterions are linear combinations of the spectra of fully hydrated bromide ions (free Br) and partially dehydrated bromide ions bound to the headgroups of the surfactant ions (bound Br). From the fraction of bound Br in counterion mixed systems, two series of the relative strengths of counterion binding are proposed for the trimethylammonium (TA$$^{+}$$) and 3-methylimidazolium (MIM$$^{+}$$) headgroups: (a) TA-SO$$_{4}$$ $$<$$ TA-Cl $$<$$ TA-Br $$<$$ TA-BF$$_{4}$$ and (b) MIM-Br $$<$$ TA-Br $$<$$ TA-BF$$_{4}$$ $$<$$ MIM-BF$$_{4}$$. For the TA headgroup, matching the hydration of the headgroups and counterions gives series (a) according to Collins' law, which states that the tendency of contact ion pair formation becomes larger when the absolute values of the hydration enthalpies of the ions match. For the MIM headgroup, the number of binding sites of hydrogen bonds between the MIM headgroup and counterion is essential, which leads to series (b) because of competition between the counterion and water for interaction with the MIM headgroup.

The speciation and coordination geometries of M(III)-citrate complexes in aqueous solutions, where M denotes Eu, Tb, Lu, or Cm, are studied using potentiometric titration, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopies. Their photophysical properties are also characterized by time-resolved fluorescence spectra. The formation constants of mononuclear, dinuclear, and trinuclear Lu-citrate species were determined by potentiometric titration in 3.00 M NaClO$$_{4}$$ aqueous media. Terminal carboxylic conformation in trinuclear complexes comprised both the five- and six-membered rings at different exchanging rates. Hydration states evaluated for Eu$$^{3+}$$ ions are the chemical formula of [Eu(Cit)$$_{2}$$ (H$$_{2}$$ O)$$_{2.5}$$ ]$$^{3-}$$ and [Eu$$_{3}$$(OH)$$_{4}$$(Cit)$$_{4}$$(H$$_{2}$$O)$$_{3.4}$$]$$^{7-}$$. These complexes in aqueous solution have geometrical similarity to the crystal structures in the literature. Furthermore, the entity of the hetero-trinuclear complex induces the intramolecular energy transfer from Tb$$^{3+}$$ to Eu$$^{3+}$$. The incorporation of Cm$$^{3+}$$ into these homo/hetero-trinuclear citrate complexes proved to be a successful trial to probe the formation of actinide polymer at a trace level.

In a previous study, we found that AMP03 adsorbs Rh(III) from the HNO$$_{3}$$ solution with pH = 1.7 - 2.2. In this study, to understand the Rh(III) adsorption properties of AMP03 and clarify conditions for efficient recovery, we investigated the adsorption behaviors of Rh(III) from the HNO$$_{3}$$ solution. As a result, it was found that Rh(III) is effectively adsorbed from aqueous solution containing low H$$^{+}$$ and high NO$$_{3}$$$$^{-}$$ concentration. Considering the adsorption mechanism of Rh(III), we found that Rh$$^{3+}$$ in aqueous solution is adsorbed with two betaine groups in AMP03 and three NO$$_{3}$$$$^{-}$$.

The cation-exchange behavior of element 104, rutherfordium (Rf), was investigated together with its lighter group-4 homologues Zr and Hf, and the tetravalent pseudo-homologue Th in HF/HNO$$_{3}$$ mixed solution. The results demonstrate that distribution coefficients ($$K_{d}$$) of Rf in HF/0.10 M HNO$$_{3}$$ decrease with increasing concentration of the fluoride ion [F$$^{-}$$], indicating the consecutive formation of fluorido complexes of Rf. We also measured the $$K_{d}$$ values of Rf and the homologues as a function of the hydrogen ion concentration [H$$^{+}$$]. The log $$K_{d}$$ values decrease linearly with an increase of log [H$$^{+}$$] with slopes between -2.1 and -2.5. This indicates that these elements are likely to form the same chemical compounds: mixture of [MF]$$^{3+}$$ and [MF$$_{2}$$]$$^{2+}$$ (M = Rf, Zr, Hf and Th) in the studied solution. It is also ascertained that sequence in the fluoride complex formation is Zr $$sim$$ Hf $$>$$ Rf $$>$$ Th.

Chloride complexation of the group-4 elements Zr and Hf in 8.0-11.9 M HCl is investigated by Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy to characterize chloro complexes of the transactinide element, rutherfordium (Rf). The complexes of Zr and Hf successively vary with the concentration of HCl from a hydrated complex [M(H$$_{2}$$O) $$_{8}$$]$$^{4+}$$ at 8.0 M to a hexachloro complex [MCl$$_{6}$$]$$^{2-}$$ at 11.9 M (M = Zr and Hf). The present structural changes of the Zr and Hf complexes well reflect the previously studied anion-exchange behavior of Zr and Hf in HCl. From both the EXAFS and anion-exchange results, we suggest that Rf forms the same complexes as those of Zr and Hf in HCl, and that the complexation strength of the hexachloro complexes of the group-4 elements, [MCl$$_{6}$$] $$^{2-}$$ (M = Zr, Hf, and Rf), is in the sequence of Rf $$>$$ Zr $$>$$ Hf.

Lanthanide complexes with linear and cyclic octadentate oligopyridine-amine ligands were synthesized, and their molecular structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography. All of the complexes had a distorted capped square antiprism (CSAP) geometry, and the coordination environments of lanthanide complexes were more distortedfor the complexes with the linear ligand than those with the cyclic ligand. The Eu$$^{3+}$$ complexes with the linear ligand showed more intense emissions, which were attributed to the $$^{5}$$D$$_{0}$$ $$rightarrow$$ $$^{7}$$F$$_{2}$$ transition, than the complex withthe cyclic ligand in acetonitrile, which can be attributed to the distortion in the coordination environments. These results indicate that the coordination environments of lanthanide complexes, and thus the luminescence properties, can be controlled by tuning the geometrical structures of polydentate ligands.

Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan, 78(9), p.1685 - 1690, 2005/09

 Times Cited Count:7 Percentile:31.86(Chemistry, Multidisciplinary)

Decomposition behavior under electron-beam irradiation was examined for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDF) isomers in incinerator gases. Significant decomposition was obtained for all PCDD isomers over the investigated absorbed doses, which was resulted from oxidation reactions with OH radicals yielded by electron-beam irradiation. In the case of PCDFs, specific isomers having symmetrical structures such as 1, 2, 8, 9-, 2, 3, 7, 8-, and 3, 4, 6, 7-TeCDFs were yielded through the dechlorination of PeCDF isomers. Thermal electrons probably played a role in the dechlorination of PeCDF isomers.

The decomposition of phenolic endocrine disrupting chemicals (P-EDCs), such as phenol, 4-butylphenol (BuP), and bisphenol A (BPA), in aqueous solutions by potassium permanganate (KMnO$$_{4}$$) was studied and its efficiency was compared with that of hydroxyl radicals (OH$$^{.}$$) generated by $$^{60}$$Co $$gamma$$-ray irradiation. Various organic acids and inorganic carbon were formed in the decomposition of P-EDCs due to either KMnO$$_{4}$$ or OH$$^{.}$$. They were formed via direct aromatic ring cleavage in the case of KMnO$$_{4}$$ and OH$$^{.}$$ addition-substitution reactions followed by aromatic ring cleavage in the case of OH$$^{.}$$. Comparing the decrease in the P-EDCs based on the number of electrons, the amount of KMnO$$_{4}$$ spent to completely eliminate BuP and BPA was comparable to the amount of OH$$^{.}$$. Although three times more KMnO$$_{4}$$ was needed for phenol than OH$$^{.}$$, the complete conversion of phenol into organic acids and inorganic carbon was achieved with 720$$mu$$M of electrons in both cases.
