  Mesoporous Ta2O5 materials functionalized with both alkyl group and a Keggin-type heteropoly acid, Ta2O5/SiO2-[H3PW12O40/R] (R = Me or Ph), was prepared by a single step sol–gel co-condensation method followed by a hydrothermal treatment in the presence of a triblock copolymer surfactant. The catalytic performance of the resulting multifunctionalized organic–inorganic hybrid materials was evaluated by a direct use of soybean oil for biodiesel production in the presence of 20 wt% myristic acid under atmosphere refluxing, and the influences of the catalyst preparation approaches, functional component loadings, and molar ratios of oil to methanol on the catalytic activity of the Ta2O5/SiO2-[H3PW12O40/R] were studied. In addition, the recyclability of the hybrid materials was evaluated via four catalytic runs. Finally, the network structures of the hybrid materials and the functions of the incorporated alkyl groups on the catalytic activity of the materials were put forward.

  Rare-earth oxide-doped titania nanocomposites (RE3+/TiO2, where RE=Eu3+, Pr3+, Gd3+, Nd3+, and Y3+) were prepared by a one-step sol–gel-solvothermal method. The products exhibited anatase phase structure, mesoporosity, and interesting surface compositions with three oxygen species and two titanium species. The products were used as the photocatalysts to degrade a partially hydrolysis polyacrylamide (HPAM) under UV-light irradiation, a very useful polymer in oil recovery. For comparison, Degussa P25 and as-prepared pure TiO2 were also tested under the same conditions. The enhanced photocatalytic activity was obtained on as-prepared Eu3+ (Gd3+, Pr3+)/TiO2 composites, and the reasons were explained. Finally, the degradation pathway of HPAM over the RE3+/TiO2 composite was put forward based on the intermediates produced during the photocatalysis procedure.

  In this study, Real-Time Reverse-Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) assays were performed with EvaGreen to investigate the dynamics of cytokine (Interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-8, Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF) and Interferon (IFN) (γ) and Toll-Like Receptor 2/4 (TLR2/4) gene expression in ovine primary Alveolar Macrophages (AMs) following Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulation. Expression of cytokine and TLR2/4 mRNA was quantified by comparison of Cycle threshold (CT) values with a standard curve generated from plasmid DNA containing the target gene. Examination of LPS-stimulated ovine AMs revealed that cytokine mRNA expression peaked between 4 and 12 h with the exception of IFN-γ mRNA which peaked around 16 h post stimulation. Furthermore, TLR2 and TLR4 mRNA expression rapidly increased post-stimulation and peaked 20 min post-stimulation at a level which was maintained throughout the procedure. In summary, a sensitive and reliable real-time RT-PCR protocol was implemented for the analysis of ovine TLR2/4 and cytokine gene expression profiles.
