In this study, novel raisin-bread sandwich-structured magnetic graphene/mesoporous silica composites with C18-modified interior pore-walls (mag-graphene@mSiO2-C18) were synthesized by coating mesoporous silica layers onto each side of magnetic graphene through a surfactant-mediated co-condensation sol-gel process. The prepared functionalized nanocomposites possessed marvelous properties of extended plate-like morphology, fine water dispersibility, high magnetic response, large surface area (315.4cm(2)g(-1)), uniform pore size (3.3nm) and C18-modified interior pore-walls. Several kinds of phthalates were selected as model analytes to systematically evaluate the performance of adsorbents in extracting hydrophobic molecules followed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analyses. Various extraction parameters, including pH value of sample solution, amounts of adsorbents, adsorption time, species and volume of eluting solvent, and desorption time were optimized. The anti-interference ability to macromolecular proteins was also investigated. Method validations such as linearity, recovery, reproducibility, and limit of detection were also studied. Finally, mag-graphene@mSiO2-C18 composites were successfully applied to analyzing pht...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
