The Zn-Sn nanoparticles/multiwall carbon nanotubes (Zn-SnNPs/MWNTs) nanocomposite film was prepared by electrodeposition of ZnCl(2) and SnCl(2) on MWNTs simultaneously in Ethaline ionic liquids. Then, based on immobilizing hemoglobin (Hb) within a novel Zn-SnNPs/MWNTs nanocomposite film (Hb/Zn-SnNPs/MWNTs), a novel hydrogen peroxide...

The anionic speciation of chlorostannate(II) ionic liquids, prepared by mixing 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride and tin(II) chloride in various molar ratios, χ(SnCl2), was investigated in both solid and liquid states. The room temperature ionic liquids were investigated by (119)Sn NMR spectroscopy, X-ray...

The synthesis of 2-(1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-3-yl)quinolines by a SnCl(2)-catalyzed multicomponent reaction has been described. The reaction proceeds chemo- and regioselectively in an atom-economic way, generating a library of 24 quinoline derivatives.

A high-efficiency photoelectrode for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) should combine the advantageous features of fast electron transport, slow interfacial electron recombination and large specific surface area. However, these three requirements usually cannot be achieved simultaneously in the present state-of-the-art research....

It was found that stannous chloride (SnCl(2)), as a popular inorganic reducing reagent, could obviously enhance the electrochemiluminescence (ECL) of tris(2,2'-bipyridyl) ruthenium(II) (Ru(bpy)(3)(2+)) in aqueous solution. Some factors affecting the ECL reactions between Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) and Sn(2+), including pH, concentrations of...
