Fenton (Fe2+ + H2O2) reagents acting to remove organic pollutants possess dual functions, including the oxidation by hydroxyl radicals and the coagulation of Fe(III). Previous papers have extensively studied the oxidation reactions by hydroxyl radicals, however, the coagulation role of Fenton for benzoic acid (BA) removal is not clear. Comparing three coagulation systems, it was found that Fenton coagulation possesses a significant advantage for the removal of BA. Through Fenton conditional experiments, results showed that with the increase of H2O2 dosage, not only was the Fenton oxidation effect improved, but the Fenton coagulation effect was also significantly enhanced. Interestingly, the flocs produced by in situ Fenton possess a better coagulation effect than an aged Fenton system when processing BA. To further explain these results, Zeta potential, Transmission electron microscope (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) and Brunner-Emmet-Teller (BET) measurements were used for characterization, and we found that the flocs produced by Fenton possessed a smaller particle size, lower polymerization states and a larger specific surface area and pore volume, which exposed more active sites to create a better coagulation effect. Additionally, through Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Gas chromatography-mass spectrometer (GC-MS), we found that in situ Fenton oxidation and coagulation have synergistic effects, and the carboxyl-containing intermediates produced by the Fenton oxidation of BA can be combined with hydroxyl active sites of the flocs produced by in situ Fenton, resulting in a better removal effect. Finally, Fenton oxidation increases oxygen/carbon (O/C) to promote Fenton coagulation, and in situ Fenton more fully utilizes the active sites on the flocs’ surface.

A large library of derivatives based on the scaffold of 2-(benzylsulfinyl)benzoic acid were synthesised and tested as atypical inhibitors against four different isoforms of human carbonic anhydrase (hCA I, II, IX and XII, EC The exploration of the chemical space around the main functional groups led to the discovery of selective hCA IX inhibitors in the micromolar/nanomolar range, thus establishing robust structure-activity relationships within this versatile scaffold. HPLC separation of some selected chiral compounds and biological evaluation of the corresponding enantiomers was performed along with molecular modelling studies on the most active derivatives.

The P2Y14 receptor (P2Y14R) plays a key role in the modulation of inflammatory process, but very few classes of antagonists have been reported. A series of 3-amide benzoic acid derivatives were identified as novel and potent P2Y14R antagonists. The most potent antagonist, 16c, showed comparable activity (IC50 = 1.77 nM) to PPTN, the most potent P2Y14R antagonist reported. Compound 16c demonstrated dramatically improved aqueous solubility and excellent metabolic stability in rat and human microsomes. Investigation of the anti-inflammatory effect of 16c was performed in MSU treated THP-1 cells by flow cytometry, Western Blot and immunofluorescence labeling technology, which exhibited that 16c might be a promising candidate for further research.
