Self-assembly of Au nano-islands with tuneable organized disorder for highly sensitive SERS

A thermophoretically driven Au aerosol deposition process is used for the self-assembly of thin films consisting of plasmonic nano-islands (NIs) with a controllable and highly reproducible degree of disorder resulting in long-range periodicity with self-similar properties and stochastically distributed hot-spots, benefitting their applications as SERS substrates.

Influence of surface chemistry on the formation of a protein corona on nanodiamonds

The protein corona of nanodiamonds is dominated by low molecular weight proteins and is largely independent of surface chemistry. The pre-incubation of nanodiamonds in serum and the formation of a protein corona decrease the production of reactive oxygen species, increasing the cell viability of macrophages.

Boosting inverted perovskite solar cell performance by using 9,9-bis(4-diphenylaminophenyl)fluorene functionalized with triphenylamine as a dopant-free hole transporting material

New small molecules based on 9,9-bis(4-diphenylaminophenyl)fluorene functionalized with triphenylamine moieties are developed for use as dopant-free hole transporting materials (HTMs) in planar inverted perovskite solar cells. Power conversion efficiencies (PCE) as high as 17.1% are obtained with good stability.
