Efficient red luminogen with aggregation-induced emission for in vivo three-photon brain vascular imaging

DCPE-TPA exhibits three morphologies with high quantum yields and nanoparticles of DCPE-TPA are utilized for in vivo 3PF imaging, achieving a penetration depth of 300 μm with a high resolution of 1.8 μm and a high signal-to-background ratio of 14.

Oxygen vacancy induced superior visible-light-driven photo-catalytic performance in the BiOCl homojunction

The black BiOCl homojunction with oxygen vacancies has a wide absorption range and results in effective separation of photo-generated electron–hole pairs, which contribute to its superior visible-light-driven photo-catalytic degradation and disinfection ability.

Highly-selective synthesis of trimetallic PtRuCu nanoframes as robust catalysts for the methanol oxidation reaction

PtRuCu NFs/C exhibited much higher mass activity and specific activity than commercial Pt/C and PtRuCu NPs/C towards the MOR due to the frame nanostructures and the synergistic effect of the trimetallics.

Intervaginal space injection of a liquid metal can prevent breast cancer invasion and better-sustain concomitant resistance

CW invasion by the primary tumor was inhibited by ISI of an LM. DCs were activated by the LM to sustain CR.

Dual-doping of ruthenium and nickel into Co3O4 for improving the oxygen evolution activity

Ru and Ni co-doped Co3O4 with improved OER activity were synthesized by a one-step hydrothermal method. Ru doping increases the intrinsic activity, while Ni doping creates more oxygen vacancies and exposes more active sites.

In situ formed methyl-co-(bis-R) silsesquioxane based polymer networks with solvent controlled pore size distributions and high surface areas

Specific pore size distributions of synthesized methylsilsesquioxane-based network materials stem from a combination of the solvation of monomers and growing oligomers, as well as miscibility of water in tested solvents; enabling specific analyte uptake materials.
