Ethyl vinyl ether was used to protect –OH on glycidol based on a literature reported protocal.59 In a typical procedure, 0.675 mol glycidol and 200 mL ethyl vinyl ether were loaded in a round-bottom flask, to which 1.25 g TsOH was then added. The reaction was allowed to proceed at room temperature (RT) for 3h. The resulting mixture was then purified by washing with 100 ml saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 for 3 times. The organic layer obtained was dried by MgSO4. After filtration of MgSO4, the excess ethyl vinyl ether was removed by rotary evaporation. The fraction at 51 °C /80 Pa from the remaining solution was collected under reduced pressure distillation. The final product EEGE monomer is a colorless liquid (Yield: 76 %).

In a typical example, 1 g c-PEO-OH was dissolved in 30 mL anhydrous N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) solvent under dry argon atmosphere, to which 10 mL 2-bromoisobutyryl bromide was added at 0 °C dropwise for 30 min under vigorous stirring. The reaction mixture was then allowed to proceed at room temperature for 1 d. After that, the solution was concentrated by reduced pressure distillation to remove NMP solvent and excess 2-bromoisobutyryl bromide. The crude product was then washed with saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 and water sequentially for 3 times, dried over MgSO4, and precipitated in cold n-hexane to obtain a final brown viscous product.

Preparation of c-PEO-N3 by substituting the Br on c-PEO-Br with azide functionalities
Typically, c-PEO-Br (0.55g) and NaN3 (0.73g) were dissolved in 20 ml DMF in a flask. The mixture was reacted at room temperature for 24 h. After the reaction is complete, the mixture was filtered through a column of neutral alumina with dichloromethane as eluent. The solution was then concentrated under reduced pressure to remove the solvents, and finally precipitated in cold n-hexane for three times to obtain the purified product c-PEO-N3.

    The ter-polymerization solution was left for 24 hr at room temperature to complete the polycondensation reaction. Ammonia solution, 10 mL of 33 % NH4OH diluted by 20 mL of distilled water, was added drop wisely until a deep brown precipitate was produced. The filtered precipitate (EB) was washed with sufficient amount of deionized water then washed by ethanol to remove residual oxidant, unreacted monomer and oligomer until the filtrate became colorless and oven dried at 60 °C for overnight. The deep brown dried powder produces PANI-AA-o-PDA (PAAAPDAK1). The gained terpolymer yield was calculated to be 88.3 % utilizing the subsequent compatible…

    Water content : The American Society for Testing and Materials(ASTM) standard method D95 was used from ensuring the water content of the oily sludge. The oily sludge was heated with benzene(solvent) which co-distilled with the water in the sample in a fume cupboard .Condensed solvent and water were continuously separate and the water settled as the bottom layer. The condensed liquid containing water and hydrocarbon was transferred to a graduated cylinder. A water layer with higher density was at the bottom of the cylinder. The volume of the water was then used in calculating the water content in the sample (using the density of water of 1g/cm3 ).…

    The Zinc nitrate hexa hydrate [Zn(NO3)2.6H2O] and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was adopted as synthesis precursors. The production unit for this chemical synthesis method was consisted of three neck glass flask and of a magnetic stirrer with temperature control. The reaction was carried out in a nitrogen environment to prevent oxidation. In the plass chamber, NaOH was dissolved in Starch solution (3% concentration of Starch in double distilled water solution) to a concentration of 0.1M and the resulting solutions were stirried at 700 C for 1 hour. Then, a solution of 0.5 M Zn(NO3)2.6H2O was added dropwise under constant stirring.…

    For the first synthesis reaction, camphene was converted to isobornyl acetate. In the fume hood, a sample of 1.36 g of camphene was added to a 25-mL round-bottomed flask along with a stir bar. To dissolve the camphene, 3.0 mL of glacial acetic acid was added into the flask. The flask was fastened onto a ring stand and immersed in a water bath that was on top of a stir plate. A thermometer wire was placed in the water bath to monitor the temperature throughout the experiment.…

    Firstly, 60 mL of silica was added to a 250 mL beaker. After which, an approximate 100 mL of chloroform was added to the beaker to make a pourable slurry. The slurry was then poured into the column and the solvent just about the silica was drained off into a conical flask. To minimize losses, the silica slurry beaker was rinsed with more chloroform and added to the column. Next, a thin layer of acid washed sand (3mm – 4mm) was added to the column.…

    The residue after hexane extraction was then extracted with 20 mL of 50% (v/v) methanol in water and ultrasonicated for 20 min. The mixture was transferred to a centrifuge tube followed by centrifugation at 4000 rpm for 10 min. The supernatant was filtered once and transferred to another tube prior to the determination of hydrophilic antioxidant activity. The lipophilic and hydrophilic antioxidant activity was measured in triplicates for each extract. Four variables that could potentially affect the extraction efficiency were studied using the same procedure mentioned above.…
