Synthesis and short DNA in situ loading and delivery of 4 nm-aperture flexible organic frameworks
Water-soluble hydrazone-connected 3D flexible organic frameworks have been revealed to in situ load and deliver short DNA into normal and cancer cells.
Silica-supported dual-dye nanoprobes for ratiometric hypoxia sensing
A covalently encapsulated dual-dye silica nanoprobe has been developed by a one-pot approach for sensitive ratiometric hypoxia detection with the Ksv value of 243.1 bar−1 and I0/I100 ratio of 153.
Highly selective removal of heterocyclic impurities from toluene by nonporous adaptive crystals of perethylated pillararene
We use nonporous adaptive crystals of perethylated pillararene to adsorb heterocyclic compounds from a mixture of toluene and heterocyclic compounds with high selectivity, ultimately improving the purity of toluene from 96.78% to 99.00%.
