• Fabrication, characterization and application of chitosan/tea polyphenols blending hydrogels

Taking the chitosan (CS) to blend with the tea polyphenols (TP) a CS/TP hydrogel was fabricated. Results showed that this fully green hydrogel has a water content at about 54% and a tensile strength within 10–13 MPa capable for applying to the soft contact lens (SCL) By controlling the added TP percent at 1–2 wt%, this CS/TP hydrogel presented good anti-ultraviolet (UV) property fitting the standards of the class-1 of SCL of US Food and Drug Administration.

• Research progress of graphene for the adsorption, enrichment and analysis of environmental pollutants

As a ‘star molecule’, graphene is widely used in technical fields such as environmental pollutant treatment due to its special properties such as ultra-high carrier mobility, ${\pi}$–${\pi}$ conjugated structure and unique electrochemical properties. This article reviews the recent applications of graphene and its derivatives for adsorption and enrichment of pollutants in the aqueous environment, atmosphere and soil, including the adsorption mechanism of graphene in the treatment of some representative contaminants and the influencing factors of adsorption performance. We hope to use this article as a glimpse of the prospects of graphene applications in environmental pollutants.
