Show Abstract ( 18 )
The emergence of antibiotics has rewritten the fate of mankind, but the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria has made the treatment of bacterial infections difficult or even unavailable, and it is imperative to develop new anti-infection strategies. Although ultraviolet rays can effectively kill bacteria,but high-densityultraviolet rays are easy to cause skin cancer, and the use scenarios are limited. Although visible and infrared light accounts for a large proportion of the energy in the total solar energy spectrum, direct irradiation cannot kill bacteria. The development of photoactive nanomaterials provides new opportunities for the development of novel antimicrobial agents and antimicrobial strategies based on visible and infrared light. This paper reviews several common sterilization technologies related to visible light and infrared light according to the main mechanism of photoactive nanomaterial sterilization, focuses on the important achievements and practical applications of photodynamic and photothermal sterilization technology in the past three years, and strives to introduce interesting knowledge in a popular language.

Show Abstract ( 4 )
Inorganic chemistry is an important core basic course for chemistry and proximate source specialties in colleges and universities. The knowledge points onproperties and applications of elements and their compounds in the teaching content arescattered and informative, making it difficult for studentsto combine the principles of chemical reactions with specific knowledge of compound properties and transformationlaws. Therefore, classroom teaching efficiency is low, and students tend to be afraid of difficulties. This study focuses on the “reconstruction” of the content and teaching mode of elemental chemistry courses. Through organizing teaching content and effectively teaching design to fan out from point to area, it establishes a “learning centered” approach, sorts out teaching content, and organizes classroom face-to-face teaching efficiently to break the dependence of traditional classroom on the class hours, and helps students build a systematic and complete knowledge system of elemental chemistry. By introducing TBL teaching method, it establishes the concept and approach of “learning centered”, and strengthens students’ ability and efficiency of self-directed learning, enhance students’ comprehensive abilities in analyzing, understanding, and applying relevant theoretical knowledge, and promote students’ value appreciation.

The hydroxyl group in alcohols is a weak leaving group. It can leave easily only after protonation with acids or formation of complexes with Lewis acids, or transformation into their sulfonates. It cannot depart under basic conditions. However, β-hydroxyaldehydes and ketones, the products of the Aldol condensation, can leave their hydroxyl group to realize dehydration under basic conditions, generating α,β-unsaturated aldehydes and ketones. These differences in dehydration of alcohols frequently cause students’ confusion. This article rationally explains the differences of these two classes of dehydrations of alcohols through analyses of their reaction mechanisms and stereoelectronic effect in the dehydrations (eliminations). It would provide a deeper understanding for students.
