Studies from X.B. Zhang and Colleagues Yield New Information about Biological Pigments (A Manganese Porphyrin Intercalated Lanthanum Niobic Acid Nanocomposite Utilized for Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Nitrite)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Fresh data on Biological Factors are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Tokyo, Japan, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Guest-guest exchange method is utilized to prepare a novel water-soluble metalloporphyrin manganese(III) meso-tetrakis(N-methylpyridinium-4-yl) porphyrin ((MnTMPyP)-T-III) intercalated layered lanthanum niobate KLaNb2O7."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "By the characterization of XRD, (MnTMPyP)-T-III cation is hypothesized to form an inclined monolayer between LaNb2O7- nanosheets. The as-prepared nanocomposite (MnTMPyP)-T-III-LaNb2O7 has good electrocatalytic activities toward oxidation of nitrite."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "A linear range of 2 x 10(-5) similar to 2.14 x 10(-2) mol L-1 with a detection limit of 1.3 x 10(-5) mol L-1 is concluded by detection of amperometric response of the (MnTMPyP)-T-III-LaNb2O7 modified electrode in nitrite solution, the mechanism of the nanocomposite toward electrocatalytic oxidation of nitrite is proposed."
