Syntheses, properties and applications of fully conjugated ladder polymers are reviewed, together with an outlook to future opportunities and challenges.
Immunological properties of gold nanoparticles
This review summarizes what is known about the application of gold nanoparticles as an antigen carrier and adjuvant in immunization for the preparation of antibodies in vivo and evaluating their potential for the development of effective vaccines.
Antibody fragments as nanoparticle targeting ligands: a step in the right direction
Recent advances in nanomedicine have shown that dramatic improvements in nanoparticle therapeutics and diagnostics can be achieved through the use of disease specific targeting ligands.
Supramolecular assembly of a phosphole-based moiety into nanostructures dictated by alkynylplatinum(II) terpyridine complexes through non-covalent Pt⋯Pt and π–π stacking interactions: synthesis, characterization, photophysics and self-assembly behaviors
A new class of platinum(II) terpyridine complexes with a phosphole-derived bridging alkynyl ligand have been prepared.
Direct heteroarylation polymerization: guidelines for defect-free conjugated polymers
New phosphine-based ligands and DFT calculations for defect-free conjugated polymers by direct (hetero)arylation polymerization (DHAP).
Multi-stimuli responsive and multi-functional oligoaniline-modified vitrimers
Introducing oligoaniline into a vitrimer resulted in a smart material that simultaneously responds to six different stimuli and performs six different functions.
Indolo[3,2-b]indole-based crystalline hole-transporting material for highly efficient perovskite solar cells
A fluorinated indolo[3,2-b]indole (IDID) derivative is prepared as a crystalline hole transporting material for perovskite solar cells. A fluorinated IDID backbone enables a tight molecular stacking by π–π interaction. The device fabricated using IDIDF exhibits a PCE of 19%.
