Abstract(19) HTML(8) PDF(1)
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is one of the important methods for qualitative and semi-quantitative analysis of surface elements of materials, especially the chemical states of the elements. By connecting mass spectrometry (MS) within its analysis cavity, surface element changes and gas products can be obtained simultaneously, thus realized the in situ analysis. Based on the obvious decomposition phenomenon of explosive CL-20 under light irradiation, the changes of surface elements and gas products of CL-20 under electron beam irradiation were obtained based on XPS-MS. The experimental results showed that with the increase of irradiation time, the peak intensity of N and O decreased rapidly, while the peak of gaseous products can be obtained effectively by mass spectrometry. The result proved that XPS-MS analysis technology can effectively realize the in situ tracking of solid state electron beam induced degradation reaction.

The characteristics, principle and application of TAG high-temperature oxidation and corrosion analyzer were introduced. The TAG high-temperature oxidation and corrosion analyzer can realize the in situ testing under controllable atmosphere (dry, wet and corrosive) and controllable temperature conditions. The design of double furnace body minimized the interference of the buoyancy effect. Moreover, the suspension sample was designed to contact the whole atmosphere, which can accurately measure the small mass change. The TAG high-temperature oxidation and corrosion analyzer can be used to study the decomposition of inorganic and organic materials at high temperature. It can also apply to investigate the oxidation and corrosion mechanisms of metals and ceramics under single or multiple atmospheres.

Abstract(22) HTML(12) PDF(3)
Thermodynamic stability describes the tendency of protein unfolding, generally showed by the melting temperature (Tm) at which 50% of the protein is unfolded. In order to compare the detection characteristics and effects of different methods, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), circular dichroism (CD) and differential scanning fluorimetry (DSF) were used to measure the Tm values of five proteins with different structural feature. The Tm values of different proteins gained using DSC, CD and DSF methods were compared. In summary, the Tm values of the same protein measured by the three methods were rather consistent, but differences were also observed. Additionally, proteins with complex structures did not show multiple Tm values.

In order to obtain accurate and high-resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic (XPS) data, different sample preparation methods were used to study the XPS testing results of different types of conductive powders, non-conductive powders and mixed powders. The effect of different sample preparation methods on testing results were discussed from the aspects of half-peak width, charge, authenticity, sample preparation efficiency and data processing. The results showed that the adhesive sample preparation was better than the indium chip sample preparation for conductive powders and non-conductive powders, and the carbon conductive tape was better. For mixed samples, the results of Scotch double-sided tape were better than those of the other three sample preparation methods. In addition, the indium chip sample preparation can be used as a reference method for the charge correction in data processing.

The calibration curve showed a good linearity (r=0.999 9) in the range of 0.2~10.0 mg/L and the limit detection (LOD) was 0.007 mg/L. The brominated butyl rubber stopper was extracted by 30% isopropanol aqueous solution at 80 ℃ for 7 hours. The freeze-dried powder was redissolved in ultrapure water to detect the amount of bromide migration directivity. The average recoveries of the migration test were between 98.1% and 104.3%, and the relative standard deviations (RSD, n=6) were from 2.9% to 4.3%. The method can be used for the detection of real samples in the compatibility test of packaging materials.

A method of determination of Trifluralin in water by gas chromatography has been established. Trifluralin in water was extracted by the liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) and solid phase extraction (SPE) respectively. The LLE method is easy to operate and saves time. The SPE method can realize automatic processing and save labor. These two pre-treatment methods have their own advantages. Then the enriched organic phase was separated on a HP-5 column, and an electron capture detector (ECD) was used in the measurement. The result showed that when the mass concentration of Trifluralin in water was in the range of 0.05~1.0 μg/L, the correlation coefficient of the regression equation of working curves was higher than 0.999. The detection limit (3 S/N) was 0.02 μg/L. The recovery and precision were tested under two different concentration levels. The recovery and relative standard deviation were obtained in the range of 84.0%~98.0% and 3.0%~5.8%, respectively.

The alkaline chlorination method was used to oxidize and decompose cyanide, and the tellurium co-precipitation method was used for the separation and enrichment of gold in the cyanide-breaking solution. The method of determination of gold in cyaniding deplating solution by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) has been established. Under alkaline conditions, sodium hypochlorite was used to oxidize and decompose the cyanide in the deplating solution and convert it into carbon dioxide and nitrogen: sodium sulfite solution was used to neutralize the residual chlorine in the cyanide-breaking solution and eliminate the effect of oxides on the cyanide test package. The cyanide-breaking effect of deplating solution can be easily and quickly judged. In the acid medium of 3.6 mol/L hydrochloric acid, the 12.5 mL tellurium solution of 2.5 g/L and 11 mL stannous chloride solution of 1mol/L could quantitatively precipitate 5~500 μg Au, and 50 times excess [ion/Au(w/w)] interfering ions does not interfere determination. The mass concentration of gold was linear with its emission intensity in the range of 0.05~25.00 mg/L. The calibration equation was y=46.487x+0.343, the correlation coefficient (r) was greater than 0.999 9, and the detection limit was 0.004 4 mg/L. The accuracy of the actual sample was investigated, the relative standard deviation (RSD, n=7) was less than 1.0%, and the recoveries were 96.9%~103.1%. The measurement result of experiment method is in good agreement with the comparison of the fire assay method.
