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.
Multicationic AIEgens for unimolecular photodynamic theranostics and two-photon fluorescence bioimaging
This work reports multicationic AIEgens for unimolecular photodynamic theranostics, and an investigation of the relationship between their structures and activities, including PDT performance, 2-photon bioimaging, and self-reporting characteristics.
Ligand exchange on noble metal nanocrystals assisted by coating and etching of cuprous oxide
We report an oxide-assisted coating-etching process to remove bio-incompatible capping ligands from the surface of noble metal nanocrystals.
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.
Modulation of ligand conjugation for efficient FAPbBr3 based green light-emitting diodes
We put forward a new strategy for efficient PeLEDs by understanding the effect of ligand conjugation on device performance.
MOF derived high-density atomic platinum heterogeneous catalyst for C–H bond activation
A MOF-derived hollow nanobox with high-density under-coordinated atomic Pt sites exhibits excellent performance in direct C–H bond borylation.
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.
