Summary of "Functionalized magnetic mesoporous silica/poly(m-aminothiophenol) nanocomposite for Hg(II) rapid uptake and high catalytic activity of spent Hg(II) adsorbent."

Currently, magnetic mesoporous silica nanospheres have been employed widely as adsorbents due to their large surface area and easy recovery. Herein, the functionalized magnetic mesoporous silica/organic polymers nanocomposite (MMSP) was fabricated by the grafted poly(m-aminothiophenol) embedded the aminated magnetic mesoporous silica nanocomposite based on FeO magnetic core, which was shelled by mesoporous silica and further modified by (3-aminopropyl) triethoxysilane. The adsorption properties of as-developed MMSP were systematically explored by altering the experimental parameters. The results indicated that the adsorption capacity and removal percentage of the MMSP could reach 243.83 mg/g and 97.53% within only 10 min at pH 4.0, and the coexisting ions had no significant effect on the selective Hg(II) ions removal from aqueous solutions, meanwhile, the adsorbent recovered by a magnet still exhibited good adsorption performance after recycled 5 times. In addition, by analyzing experimental data, the adsorption process of Hg(II) ions belonged to spontaneous exothermic adsorption, and the possible adsorption mechanisms were proposed based on the pseudo-second-order model and Langmuir model. After adsorption study, the waste material adsorbed Hg(II) was developed as an efficient catalyst for transformation of phenylacetylene to acetophenone with yield of 97.06%. In this study, we designed an efficient and selective material for Hg(II) ions remove and provided a treatment of the post-adsorbed mercury adsorbent by converting the waste into an excellent catalyst, which reduced the economic and environmental impact from conventional adsorption techniques.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A poly(dimethylsiloxane) which is a polymer of 200-350 units of dimethylsiloxane, along with added silica gel. It is used as an antiflatulent, surfactant, and ointment base.

A poly(A) binding protein that is involved in promoting the extension of the poly A tails of MRNA. The protein requires a minimum of ten ADENOSINE nucleotides in order for binding to mRNA. Once bound it works in conjunction with CLEAVAGE AND POLYADENYLATION SPECIFICITY FACTOR to stimulate the rate of poly A synthesis by POLY A POLYMERASE. Once poly-A tails reach around 250 nucleotides in length poly(A) binding protein II no longer stimulates POLYADENYLATION. Mutations within a GCG repeat region in the gene for poly(A) binding protein II have been shown to cause the disease MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, OCULOPHARYNGEAL.

A non-crystalline form of silicon oxide that has absorptive properties. It is commonly used as a desiccating agent and as a stationary phase for CHROMATOGRAPHY. The fully hydrated form of silica gel has distinct properties and is referred to as SILICIC ACID.

A poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase that contains two ZINC FINGERS in its N-terminal DNA-binding region. It modifies NUCLEAR PROTEINS involved in chromatin architecture and BASE EXCISION REPAIR with POLY ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATE RIBOSE.

A poly(A) binding protein that has a variety of functions such as mRNA stabilization and protection of RNA from nuclease activity. Although poly(A) binding protein I is considered a major cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein it is also found in the CELL NUCLEUS and may be involved in transport of mRNP particles.
