Themed collection 2020 Horizons Outstanding Paper Award Winners
Materials Horizons 2020 Outstanding Paper Award
Recognizing some of the most outstanding work published in Materials Horizons and the authors behind those articles.
Nanoscale Horizons 2020 Outstanding Paper Award
We would like to take the opportunity to recognize some of the outstanding work published in the journal, as well as the authors behind those articles, by awarding a select number of Outstanding Paper prizes.
Evolution of self-healing elastomers, from extrinsic to combined intrinsic mechanisms: a review
We propose a timeline classifying self-healing polymers in generations based on the healing mechanism, and correlated with historical development.
Dynamic DNA nanotechnology: toward functional nanoscale devices
This review presents recent advances and continuing challenges in the design, characterization, and modelling of dynamic DNA nanodevices.
The biomolecule corona of lipid nanoparticles contains circulating cell-free DNA
The biomolecule corona spontaneously adsorbed onto lipid-based nanoparticles (NPs), upon incubation with human plasma, contains circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA).
Stretchable, self-healing and tissue-adhesive zwitterionic hydrogels as strain sensors for wireless monitoring of organ motions
Stretchable, self-healing, and fatigue resistant polyzwitterionic nanocomposite hydrogels with polydopamine robustly adhere to the heart and lungs for in situ monitoring of dynamic motions through wireless transmission.
Lead-free, stable, high-efficiency (52%) blue luminescent FA3Bi2Br9 perovskite quantum dots
Lead-free Bi-based perovskite FA3Bi2X9 (X = Cl, Br, and I) quantum dots (QDs) are synthesized for the first time at room temperature. The ligand-passivated FA3Bi2Br9 QDs exhibit blue emission at 437 nm with photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY) up to 52%.
An ambient-stable and stretchable ionic skin with multimodal sensation
A diode-like artificial ionic skin for strain and humidity sensing with controlled ion mobility, high toughness, stretchability, ambient stability and transparency.
