    The technique for preparing phenol-formaldehyde resin adhesive from bamboo tar and its characters were studied and analyzed. The experiment showed that the substituted content of the bamboo tar affected greatly the nature of the adhesive. When the addition of bamboo tar was 30g,and the substituted content of bamboo tar reached 12.5%, free formaldehyde was lower than 0.5%, the PF adhesive with moderate viscosity had high bonding strength, and the bonding strength could achieve the demands of GB/T 9846-2004.The cost of the adhesive is lowered for the using of bamboo tar, and the adhesive had a good prospect.

    Abstract ( 948 )   PDF (975KB) ( 2417 )   Save
    Oxidation stability is one of the most important properties of biodiesel blend fuels. Various standard test methods to evaluate the oxidation stability of biodiesel blend fuels were presented and compared in this paper. It is indicated that the accele-rated oxidation method of distillate fuel oil (ASTM D 2274 or SH/T 0175) and oil stability index (OSI) method (EN 14112) were two widely accepted standard methods which might be specified in a variety of biodiesel blend fuel specifications. Other standard methods such as distillate fuel storage at 43℃ method (SH/T 0690 or ASTM D 4625), high temperature stability method (ASTM D 6468), JFTOT method(GB/T 9169 or ASTM D 3241)and gasoline induction period method (GB/T 8018 or ASTM D 525)could also be useful methods to study the oxidation stability of biodiesel blend fuels. Suggestions are given to specify the oxidation stability of the coming draft national specifications of B5,B10 and B20 as well.

    Biomass is the sole renewable carbon resource that can be transferred into gas, liquid, and solid fuels as well as other chemicals. As the fossil energy will be exhaustive, human pay more attention to the problem of global environment. Many scholars and researchers in the world have been focusing on the research and development of biomass energy to substitute for fossil energy. The clean and high quality gases, liquid and solid fuels converted from renewable biomass resource by different ways were described in the course series. In this paper the development of biomass power generation at home and abroad, and the plan of some countries are introduced. The main technologies of biomass power generation have three types: direct combustion power generation, biomass gasification for power generation and power generation by methane.

    Study on the Kinetic and the Thermodynamic Parameters for Adsorption of Phenol by Bamboo-charcoal
    ZHANG Qi-wei;WANG Gui-xian
    2008, 42 (2):  19-22. 
    Abstract ( 629 )   PDF (795KB) ( 1158 )   Save
    The kinetic and the thermodynamic parameters for the adsorption of phenol in aqueous solution by bamboo-charcoal were studied. Researches of kinetics showed that adsorption of phenol by bamboo-charcoal can be dealt with pseudo first-order reaction. The apparent adsorption rate constants and activation energy were determined with different sizes of charcoal and at different temperatures. Researches of thermodynamics showed that the adsorption behavior of the bamboo-charcoal for phenol obeys the Langmuir isotherm model. The heat of adsorption is ΔH=-14.0kJ/mol, it means that the sorption process is a exothermic process, and ΔH<40kJ/mol means that the sorption process is mostly physical adsorption. At the same time, Gibbs free energy ΔG<0 indicates that the sorption process is a spontaneous process.

    Preparation of Carboxylmethylcellulose Gel Beads and Their Performance on Slow Release of Fertilizer
    LV Jin-hong;LI Jian-fa
    2008, 42 (2):  15-18. 
    Abstract ( 787 )   PDF (916KB) ( 1285 )   Save
    The preparation of carboxylmethylcellulose (CMC) gel beads was studied by using the water loss ratio to reflect the crosslinking progress. The results indicated that, the rate of water loss was quicker and the ratio of water loss higher following the increase of concentration of Fe3+ as the crosslinking agent. Following the increase of content of CMC in the solution for preparing gel beads, the ratio of water loss was lower. The water in CMC gel beads was mainly in a bonding status through analyzing the freezing process of gels with DSC method, and the longer the crosslinking time for preparing the gels, the lower the content of water in gels. The potassium nitrate was used as the model compound of fertilizer in release experiments. The results showed an apparently slow release when the loading amount of potassium nitrate in gel was 5.0%.

    The production test on the optimum formulation and technology of typeⅠ、Ⅱstarch-based API optimized by orthogonal test and validating test is conducted and the main properties of the API are tested according to JISK 6806 standard requirement. The results show that the pot life of starch-based API exceeds that of synthesized resin-based API and storage stability reaches 3 months at room temperature. The glued-products such as plywood, bamboo flooring, parquet flooring, blackboard and etc. are manufactured respectively by adopting starch-based API adhesive. Indices of physical and chemical properties reach completely relevant standard requirement and no deleterious matter as formaldehyde is released. Such adhesive has obvious operability in production and meets completely requirement for existing technology. Its raw materials cost is equivalent to 1/4-1/3 of imported adhesive. So it has obvious social environment benefits and economical benefits.

    An absorbent was prepared from peanut shell by epichlorohydrin modification. Its adsorption performance for methy-lene blue in solution was also studied. The results indicate: the modified peanut shell was obtained by using 1.25 mol/L NaOH solution 45 mL and epichlorohydrin 25mL to modify 2.0g peanuts shell, controlling reaction temperature at 40℃, mixing time for 30min,filtering, water washing and drying. The optimal adsorption condition of modified peanut shell to methylene blue was: 50 mL of 100 mg/L methylene blue solution, 0.2g modified peanut shell, pH value 6.48, stirring time 60min. The adsorption rate of modified peanut shell was 99%. The used peanut shell could be regenerated by 0.5 mol/L NaOH solution. The adsorption rate of regenerated peanut shell after being used three times was over 96%. The adsorption rate of unmodified peanut shell to methylene blue was only 82%.
