Nanoarchitectonics: what's coming next after nanotechnology?
The nanoarchitectonics concept has the ability to bridge nanoscale science and visual size materials. The final goal of nanoarchitectonics approaches is the creation of living-creature-like functional material systems from simple nanoscale objects.
Catalytic methods for chemical recycling or upcycling of commercial polymers
A review covering catalytic method development to enable efficient chemical recycling and upcycling of the most abundant commercial polymers.
Biohybrid plants with electronic roots via in vivo polymerization of conjugated oligomers
Conjugated oligomers polymerize in vivo on the root system of intact plants forming an extended network of tissue integrated conductors while the plants continue to grow and develop. The conducting roots are used to store energy in the plant.
van der Waals solid solution crystals for highly efficient in-air photon upconversion under subsolar irradiance
The concept of van der Waals solid solutions has been demonstrated to yield photon upconversion (UC) organic crystals with extraordinary performance, opening a domain of versatile dispersion-force-based systems in the quest for superior UC solids.
Synthesis of monodisperse high entropy alloy nanocatalysts from core@shell nanoparticles
Annealing core@shell nanoparticles (NPs) yields high-entropy alloy NPs. Owing to their dispersed Pt/Pd content and low elemental diffusivity, they exhibit enhanced electrocatalytic performance and durability for the oxygen reduction reaction.
Ferroelectric polymer-based artificial synapse for neuromorphic computing
Recently, various efforts have been made to implement synaptic characteristics with a ferroelectric field-effect transistor (FeFET), but in-depth physical analyses have not been reported thus far.
