Distribution and Emission Estimation of Short- and Medium-Chain Chlorinated Paraffins in Chinese Products through Detection-Based Mass Balancing.

Environ Sci Technol 2021 May 14. Epub 2021 May 14.

State Key Joint Laboratory for Environmental Simulation and Pollution Control, College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Peking University, Beijing 100871, China.

Short- and medium-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs and MCCPs, respectively) have raised environmental concern due to their potential for persistence, long-range transport, bioaccumulation, and toxicity. However, little is known about the production, use, and environmental emissions of SCCPs and MCCPs in China, the world's largest producer and consumer. In this study, we estimated the amounts of SCCPs and MCCPs produced and used in China in 2018-2019 based on a nationwide survey and measurements of concentrations in products, from which we estimated the environmental emissions of SCCPs and MCCPs in China.

Non-Covalent Microarrays from Synthetic Amino-Terminating Glycans-Implications in Expanding Glycan Microarray Diversity and Platform Comparison.

Glycobiology 2021 May 8. Epub 2021 May 8.

Glycosciences Laboratory, Imperial College London, London W12 0NN, United Kingdom.

Glycan microarrays have played important roles in detection and specificity assignment of glycan-recognition by proteins. However, the size and diversity of glycan libraries in current microarray systems are small compared to estimated glycomes, and these may lead to missed detection or incomplete assignment. For microarray construction, covalent and non-covalent immobilization are the two types of methods used, but a direct comparison of results from the two platforms is required. Read More

Mechanics of adhesives under annular confinement: internal pressure, force, and interfacial area.

Soft Matter 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Polymer Science and Engineering Department, University of Massachusetts Amherst, 120 Governors Drive, Amherst, MA 01003, USA.

Closed annular adhesive interfaces are commonly found in nature as well as in many existing and developing technologies. Such contacts provide enhanced control of interfacial history by prescribing whether interfacial separation occurs at the outer or inner edge, and whether internal pressure affects the required force for separation. To facilitate the development of technologies involving annular contacts, we have experimentally measured the relationship between applied displacement, resulting force and internal pressure, and annular interface dimensions for the contact between a rigid annular probe and an adhesive layer with finite thickness.

Healable and Rearrangeable Networks of Liquid Crystal Elastomers Enabled by Diselenide Bonds.

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Kent State University, Liquid Crystal Institute and Chemical Physics Interdiscinplary Program, Liquid Crystal Institute, Kent State University, 44242, Kent, UNITED STATES.

Based on liquid crystal elastomer (LCE) materials, hierarchically structured soft actuators could meet some requirements for "human-friendly" working mode and execute complex tasks with intelligent adaptation to environmental changes. However, few researchers have paid much attention to the preparation methods of multicomponent/hierarchical LCE actuators. In this communication, we demonstrate the successful integration of an exchangeable diselenide chain extender for the preparation of dynamic LCEs, which could be reprogrammed on heating or under visible light illumination.
