      In this paper, we described the synthesis and characterization of new diphenylethylene bearing imino group. We concentrated particularly on the investigation of the possibility of the excited state intramolecular charge transfer (ESIPT) of the new dyes experimentally and theoretically. The absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy of the dyes were determined in various solvents.

      The phase structure (H1 phase), which can be formed in [C12mim]Cl/H2O binary system, is not changed when L64 with a low concentration is added. However, phase transitions will occur from H1 to multiphases of H1 and cubic phases (C), then to Lα+C phases with constant [C12mim]Cl/H2O ratio and increased L64 concentration.

      The interwall spacing between the carbon nanotube and ice tube plays an important role in the stabilities of resultant structures. The most stable complex has optimum interwall spacing which is close to the van der Waals distance. The frontier energy bands of n-gon@(m,n) complex are mainly derived from carbon nanotube and encapsulation of ice tube can not modulate the electronic properties of CNT.

      The kinetics of oxidation of sarcosine by diperiodatocuprate(III) (DPC) was studied with spectrophotometry in a temperature range of 292.2–304.2 K. The reaction was found to be first order with respect to both DPC and sarcosine. The observed rate constant (kobs) decreased with the increase of the [IO4], decreased with the increase of the [OH], and then increased with the increase of the [OH] after a turning point. A plausible mechanism of reaction was proposed and the activation parameters of the rate-determining step have been also calculated.

      For grafting polypyrrole layers on oxidic substrates, the synthesis and characterization of a new adhesion promoter 11-(pyrrol-3-yl) undecyl trimethoxysilane (PyTMS) were described in this article. The oxidation potential of PyTMS was determined by cyclic voltammetry. The grafting behavior of such an adhesion promoter on oxidized surface and chemical deposition of polypyrrole over the modified oxidized surface were studied. The adsorbed layer on the oxidized substrates thus formed was determined by both contact angle measurements and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Chemical polymerization of terminal pyrrole moieties on such substrates yielded adhesive polypyrrole films, and SEM image showed that the morphology of the polypyrrole films was influenced by the experimental conditions.

      Friction and wear properties of PTFE with spherulitic micro-morphology are studied for the first time. The results show that, first, under the same experimental condition, when two kinds of PTFE are rubbed against the steel disc, the number and size of debris of spherulitic PTFE are much less and smaller than that of debris of PTFE without spherulitic crystals. This means that the wear resistance of spherulitic PTFE is better than that of semi-crystalline PTFE without spherulitic micro-morphology. Second, the friction property of spherulitic PTFE is also different from that of PTFE without spherulitic crystals. Finally, the friction and wear mechanisms of spherulitic PTFE and non-spherulitic PTFE are compared.

      Dehydrogenation by IBX/p-TsOH is applied to the conversion of 3-benzoyl propionates/propionamides to 3-benzoyl acrylates/acrylamides in moderate to excellent yields. The reaction time for the dehydrogenation of 3-benzoyl propionamides was remarkably shorter than that for the dehydrogenation of esters.
