  • Methods for easily following the main changes in the composition, stability, and acidity of bio-oil in hydrotreatment are presented. The correlation to more conventional methods is provided. Depending on the final use the upgrading requirement is different. This will create challenges also for the analytical protocol. Polar pyrolysis liquids and their products can be divided into five main groups with solvent fractionation the change in which is easy to follow. This method has over ten years been successfully used for comparison of fast pyrolysis bio-oil quality, and the changes during handling, and storage, provides the basis of the analytical protocolmore » presented in this paper. The method has most recently been used also for characterisation of bio-oil hydrotreatment products. Discussion on the use of gas chromatographic and spectroscopic methods is provided. In addition, fuel oil analyses suitable for fast pyrolysis bio-oils and hydrotreatment products are discussed.« less
  • This article reports on improved lubricating performance by combining oil-soluble poly(lauryl methacrylate) brush-grafted silica nanoparticles (hairy NPs or HNP) and an oil-miscible phosphonium-phosphate ionic liquid (IL) as a friction-reducing additive for a polyalphaolefin (PAO) oil. The HNP was synthesized by surface-initiated reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer polymerization. At a total concentration of 2% and sufficiently high individual concentrations for HNP and IL in PAO, high-contact stress, ball-on-flat reciprocating tribological tests showed that the friction decreased by up to 23% compared with 2% HNP alone in PAO and by up to 35% compared to the PAO mixed with 2% IL. Scanning electronmore » microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis revealed that the tribofilm formed from the PAO containing 1% HNP + 1% IL was enriched with both Si and P, indicating that both hairy NPs and IL were involved in the tribochemical reactions. In addition, the O 1s and Si 2p peaks in the core-level XPS spectra exhibited significant shifts for the mixture of 1% HNP + 1% IL compared to those for 2% HNP, suggesting the possible formation of new covalent bonds. These results indicated that HNP and IL reacted with each other and also with the metal substrate during the rubbing process, which likely strengthened the tribofilm and its bonding with the substrate and thus further improved the lubrication.« less
  • Hierarchically patterned macroporous TiO2 structures can be fabricated via the spontaneous self-assembly of TiO2 nanoparticles prepared using a mixture of 1-octadecene (ODE) and an ODE-immiscible 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium-based ionic liquid as the reaction medium. A study of the influence of side chain lengths of ionic liquids (n = 4, 8, or 16) reveals that this parameter can be further used to fine-tune the morphologies of the products. This synthetic methodology can also be extended to the formation of patterned macroporous ZrO2 and Fe3O4 structures. Finally, the potential reasons for the formation of hierarchical structures are discussed and the implications to further researchmore » are proposed.« less
