Show Abstract ( 5 )
Bacteria can synthesize a variety of polysaccharide molecules and secrete on the surface of bacteria to form a polysaccharide protective layer. When the bacteria are in a harsh environment, the polysaccharide protective layer can adjust the bacteria to adapt to the surrounding environment, so as to make them survive. The main polysaccharides secreted by Gram-negative bacteria include lipopolysaccharides, capsular polysaccharides and extracellular polysaccharides, which are usually effective antigens that cause strong immune response in human body and are very important for the pathogenicity of bacteria. Therefore, it is very important to study their structure and synthetic transport mechanism, which can provide innovative guidance and ideas for the target drug design of bacterial polysaccharide transport routes. This paper will focus on the structure, synthetic transport mechanism, function and influence and other aspects of bacterial polysaccharides.

There are new forms and contents in the evaluation system of basic chemistry experiment courses based on intelligent teaching platform, which is different to the three traditional evaluation modules. On the platform, the limitations of the traditional evaluation system are broken, such as the mode of evaluation management and the transmission of information. The new evaluation system can not only give a more comprehensive and objective evaluation about quality and skills to freshmen, but also improve the teaching efficiency and effect of the courses. The evaluation strategies established by practice in inorganic chemistry experiment and analytical chemistry experiment can be applied to other basic chemistry experiment courses, which will promote the curriculum value significantly.

Modern chemical processes use a large amount of solvent,and with timely-and-costly solvent processing. Here, we report a less solvent solid state reaction that can make 100% completion, by using a little solvent and a method to evaporate it at the end of the reaction. It has been found that the reaction of solid CoCl2·6H2O and solid NH4Cl in 1∶2 molar ratio with different amount of water at 35 ℃ stops at surficial stage if no water is used, but it reaches its equilibrium if water is used, and produces sole (NH4)2[CoCl4(H2O)2] if water is being gradually removed at the end of the reaction, which confirms the deduction of thermodynamics on LSR.

Show Abstract ( 2 )
In response to the teaching challenges of a mismatch between talent cultivation in applied courses and industry demands, a dual-loop competence-growth applied course teaching mode oriented to the industry’s vocational needs was explored and developed based on the course construction philosophy of “project-driven, outcome-oriented, competence-enhancing, and value-led”. The mode consists of two improvement loops: one focused on course system enhancement based on vocational demand issues and the other centered around project-driven classroom teaching enhancements. Through the establishment of a trinity of teaching objectives based on vocational needs, the course content is reconstructed based on abilities, and the value-oriented education is carried out by emphasizing the multi-dimensional integration of vocational quality and humanistic quality. By adopting the logic of “5W1H” project analysis, a project-driven three-stage hybrid ten-step teaching method was developed, which includes immersive and interactive simulation teaching in real scenarios and assessment of course objectives aimed at achieving occupational capabilities. The reform results showed that the proposed teaching model improved students’ applied abilities effectively.

In the teaching process of titration analysis, in order to promote the deep integration of modern information technology and education, a graphical user interface (GUI) redox titration learning software was developed using Python language. The software divides the redox titration system into two types: symmetric and asymmetric titration reactions. After customizing or selecting the built-in redox titration examples, users can automatically judge the degree of titration reaction and statically display or dynamically visualize the titration curve by simply setting the titration parameters and selecting the titration medium. According to the curve image, it can calculate the stoichiometric point, titration jump range and titration error. The learning software has strong openness, flexibility, and practicality, making it easy for teachers to teach and students to learn independently. The software interface design is simple, easy to operate, and users do not need installation and professional programming knowledge. It can run directly on the Windows platform.

Show Abstract ( 3 )
The proton balance equation of NaHCO3 aqueous solution is displayed as [H2CO3]+[H+]=[OH-]+[CO32-], and the relative content of the species including H2CO3, H+, OH-, and CO32- would be changed as the analytical concentration of NaHCO3 solution is varied. In this paper, the dynamic diagram of the concentration of each component in the proton balance equation with the solution concentration c is presented and plotted. From the dynamic diagram, the major, the minor, and the negligible species in the proton balance equation are directly and easily determined, thus, different pH formulas of solutions with different concentrations were obtained. The dynamic diagram can not only find new pH formulas, but also help students understand the physical meaning of the pH formulas correctly. It should be emphasized that the dynamic diagrams can provide new insights into the proton transfer reactions. For example,in concentrated solutions, the proton transfer reaction HCO3-+HCO3-⇌H2CO3+CO32- dominates. In 9.1×10-6 mol·L-1 solution, the proton transfer reaction H2O+HCO3-⇌H2CO3+OH- dominates.

Show Abstract ( 2 )
In 1871, Mendeleev foresaw “Ekaaluminium” based on the periodic law of elements. In 1875, Boisbaudran isolated gallium elements based on empirical research. Until the discovery of gallium isotopes in the 20th century, the development of the concept of gallium elements went through three periods of hypothesis, formation and new cognition. With the evolution of scientific thought and the progress of science and technology, the concept of gallium has continued to develop, and people’s understanding of gallium has also experienced a development process from macroscopic phenomena to microscopic essence, from hypothesis to objective reality. The discovery process of the element gallium reflects the importance of the scientific method. The discovery of gallium also facilitated the spread of the idea of periodic law.
