The effect of hydroxyl functional groups and molar mass on the viscosity of non-crystalline organic and organic–water particles

Authors: Grayson, JW; Evoy, E; Song, M; Chu, Y; Maclean, A; Nguyen, A; Upshur, MA; Ebrahimi, M; Chan, CK; Geiger, FM; Thomson, RJ; Bertram, AK (2017) HERO ID: 4683794

[Less] The viscosities of three polyols and three saccharides, all in the non-crystalline state, have been . . . [More] The viscosities of three polyols and three saccharides, all in the non-crystalline state, have been studied. Two of the polyols (2-methyl-1,4-butanediol and 1,2,3-butanetriol) were studied under dry conditions, the third (1,2,3,4-butanetetrol) was studied as a function of relative humidity (RH), including under dry conditions, and the saccharides (glucose, raffinose, and maltohexaose) were studied as a function of RH. The mean viscosities of the polyols under dry conditions range from 1.5  ×  10−1 to 3.7  ×  101 Pa s, with the highest viscosity being that of the tetrol. Using a combination of data determined experimentally here and literature data for alkanes, alcohols, and polyols with a C3 to C6 carbon backbone, we show (1) there is a near-linear relationship between log10 (viscosity) and the number of hydroxyl groups in the molecule, (2) that on average the addition of one OH group increases the viscosity by a factor of approximately 22 to 45, (3) the sensitivity of viscosity to the addition of one OH group is not a strong function of the number of OH functional groups already present in the molecule up to three OH groups, and (4) higher sensitivities are observed when the molecule has more than three OH groups. Viscosities reported here for 1,2,3,4-butanetetrol particles are lower than previously reported measurements using aerosol optical tweezers, and additional studies are required to resolve these discrepancies. For saccharide particles at 30 % RH, viscosity increases by approximately 2–5 orders of magnitude as molar mass increases from 180 to 342 g mol−1, and at 80 % RH, viscosity increases by approximately 4–5 orders of magnitude as molar mass increases from 180 to 991 g mol−1. These results suggest oligomerization of highly oxidized compounds in atmospheric secondary organic aerosol (SOA) could lead to large increases in viscosity, and may be at least partially responsible for the high viscosities observed in some SOA. Finally, two quantitative structure–property relationship models (Sastri and Rao, 1992; Marrero-Morejón and Pardillo-Fontdevila, 2000) were used to predict the viscosity of alkanes, alcohols, and polyols with a C3–C6 carbon backbone. Both models show reasonably good agreement with measured viscosities for the alkanes, alcohols, and polyols studied here except for the case of a hexol, the viscosity of which is underpredicted by 1–3 orders of magnitude by each of the models.

[More] Acetic acid bacteria are well-known for their membrane-bound dehydrogenases rapidly oxidizing a variety of substrates in the periplasm. Since many acetic acid bacteria have not been successfully cultured in the laboratory yet, studying membrane-bound dehydrogenases directly from a metagenome of vinegar microbiota seems to be a promising way to identify novel variants of these enzymes. To this end, DNA from a mother of vinegar was isolated, sequenced, and screened for membrane-bound dehydrogenases using an in silico approach. Six metagenomic dehydrogenases were successfully expressed using an expression vector with native promoters in the acetic acid bacterium strain Gluconobacter oxydans BP.9, which is devoid of its major native membrane-bound dehydrogenases. Determining the substrates converted by these enzymes, using a whole-cell DCPIP assay, revealed one glucose dehydrogenase with an enlarged substrate spectrum additionally oxidizing aldoheptoses, D-ribose and aldotetroses, one polyol dehydrogenase with an extreme diminished spectrum but distinguishing cis and trans-1,2-cyclohexandiol and a completely new secondary alcohol dehydrogenase, which oxidizes secondary alcohols with a hydroxyl group at position 2, as long as no primary hydroxyl group is present. Three further dehydrogenases were found with substrate spectra similar to known dehydrogenases of G. oxydans 621H.

[Less] Aqueous dilute solutions of 2-butoxyethanol, 1,2-hexanediol, tert-butanol, 1-pentylamine and 1-butylamine . . . [More] Aqueous dilute solutions of 2-butoxyethanol, 1,2-hexanediol, tert-butanol, 1-pentylamine and 1-butylamine are analized through the dynamic light scattering technique. The mutual diffusion coefficient is determined against amphiphile composition, showing, in all cases, clear minima in the dilute region. Using the Stokes-Einstein relation, the mean size of the aggregates is also obtained as a function of mole fraction. For enough concentrated solutions, structures in the range 2-20 angstrom are observed. It is found that both their size and the minimum amphiphile mole fraction for which aggregation is observed are strongly correlated with the hydrophobic character of the amphiphile.

[More] We report the use of the ionic liquid tetrabutylphosphonium bromide as a solvent and catalyst for dehydration of diols to conjugated dienes. This system combines stability, high reaction rates, and easy product separation. A reaction mechanism for the model compound 1,2-hexanediol is proposed and experimentally corroborated. This particular mechanism allows for the selective formation of conjugated dienes, in contrast with purely acidic catalysis. Next, the reaction is also performed on various other diols. As a first application, we assessed the biobased production of 1,3-butadiene. With 1,4-butanediol as the starting material, a 94% yield of butadiene was reached at 100% conversion.

Influence of 1,2-alkanediols on the structure of their intercalates with strontium phenylphosphonate solved by molecular simulation and experimental methods

[More] Strontium phenylphosphonate intercalates with 1,2-diols (from 1,2-ethanediol to 1,2-hexanediol) were synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry, chemical analysis, and molecular simulation methods. Prepared samples exhibit a very good stability at ambient conditions. Structural arrangement calculated by simulation methods suggested formation of cavities surrounded by six benzene rings. Each cavity contained one molecule of diol and one molecule of water for the 1,2-ethanediol to 1,2-butanediol intercalates. In the case of 1,2-pentanediol two types of cavities alternated: one with diol molecules and another one with two water molecules. In the 1,2-hexanediol intercalate the benzene rings created two types of cavities containing one or two diol molecules, respectively, and this conformational variability led to a more disordered arrangement with respect to the models with shorter alkyl chains. Coordination of the oxygen atoms of the diols to the strontium atoms of the host follows the same pattern for all 1,2-diol intercalates except the 1,2-hexanediol intercalate, where these oxygen atoms can be mutually exchanged at their positions. The calculated basal spacings and structural models are in good agreement with experimental basal spacings obtained from X-ray powder diffraction and with other experimental results.

Change in reactivity of differently capped AuPd bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts for selective oxidation of aliphatic diols to hydroxycarboxylic acids in basic aqueous solution

Authors: Tuteja, J; Nishimura, S; Ebitani, K (2016) HERO ID: 4399677

[Less] N,N-Dimethyldodecylamine N-oxide (DDAO), PVP and PVA capped supported AuPd bimetallic nanoparticles . . . [More] N,N-Dimethyldodecylamine N-oxide (DDAO), PVP and PVA capped supported AuPd bimetallic nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared, and their catalytic activities were evaluated for the oxidation of 1,6-hexanediol (HDO) to 6-hydroxycaproic acid (HCA) using H2O2 in basic aqueous solution. Among three catalysts, DDAO capped AuPd bimetallic NPs catalysts exhibited superior selectivity for HCA formation than PVP and PVA capped catalysts. To explain the difference in the catalytic behavior, the catalysts were characterized thoroughly. XRD, TEM and STEM-HAADF-EDS studies were employed to identify the structure and morphology of capped AuPd-NPs, respectively. The chemical and electronic states were elucidated using XPS and XAS methods. The characterization data revealed that the capping agent significantly influences the electron density on metals and extent of alloying between Au and Pd metals. It was revealed that DDAO-capped catalyst induces appropriate negatively charged Au species with a few numbers of Au-Pd interfaces for the highly selective formation of HCA via HDO oxidation in basic aqueous media. Furthermore, other aliphatic diols, 1,7-heptanediol, 1,8-octanediol and 1,2-hexanediol, were also selectively oxidized on AuPd-DDAO catalysts toward the corresponding omega-hydroxycarboxylic acids in high yields.

[More] Silicon nanowire possesses great potential as the material for renewable energy harvesting and conversion. The significantly reduced spectral reflectivity of silicon nanowire to visible light makes it even more attractive in solar energy applications. However, the benefit of its use for solar thermal energy harvesting remains to be investigated and has so far not been clearly reported. The purpose of this study is to provide practical information and insight into the performance of silicon nanowires in solar thermal energy conversion systems. Spectral hemispherical reflectivity and transmissivity of the black silicon nanowire array on silicon wafer substrate were measured. It was observed that the reflectivity is lower in the visible range but higher in the infrared range compared to the plain silicon wafer. A drying experiment and a theoretical calculation were carried out to directly evaluate the effects of the trade-off between scattering properties at different wavelengths. It is clearly seen that silicon nanowires can improve the solar thermal energy harnessing. The results showed that a 17.8 % increase in the harvest and utilization of solar thermal energy could be achieved using a silicon nanowire array on silicon substrate as compared to that obtained with a plain silicon wafer.

Performance, Structure, and Mechanism of ReOx-Pd/CeO2 Catalyst for Simultaneous Removal of Vicinal OH Groups with H-2

[Less] The ceria-supported rhenium catalyst modified with palladium (ReOx-Pd/CeO2 (Re = 2 wt %, Pd/Re = 0.25)) . . . [More] The ceria-supported rhenium catalyst modified with palladium (ReOx-Pd/CeO2 (Re = 2 wt %, Pd/Re = 0.25)) is still the best catalyst for simultaneous hydrodeoxygenation. Higher Re loading amount decreased the activity. The simultaneous hydrodeoxygenation of cyclic vicinal diols occurs with high cis-stereoselectivity. ReOx-Pd/CeO2 catalysts were characterized by means of XRD, TEM, H-2-TPR, XAFS, XPS, Raman, and DFT calculations. The Re species on ReOx-Pd/CeO2 (Re = 2 wt %, Pd/Re = 0.25) catalyst after reduction and after stoichiometric reaction of 1,2-hexanediol to 1-hexene were Re-IV and Re-VI, and the Re-IV species were converted to Re-VI through the stoichiometric reaction. The Re species on ReOx-Pd/CeO2 are proposed to be randomly located on the CeO2 surface, and probably only monomeric Re species have catalytic activity for simultaneous hydrodeoxygenation. This model can explain the higher activity of Re = 2 wt % catalyst than those of higher Re loading catalysts. The reaction is proposed to proceed by the tetra/hexavalent redox cycle of the Re center in the catalysis followed by hydrogenation.
