Highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) crystals were intercalated in perchloric (HClO4) and sulfuric (H2SO4) acid solutions reaching the fourth stage of intercalation. By an innovative system that combines time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) and in-situ atomic force microscopy (AFM), it was possible to obtain the identification and three-dimensional (3D) distribution of the chemical species involved in the intercalation mechanism.

During the photocatalytic process, Pt3Co co-catalyst not only possesses stronger electron capture ability than conventional Pt, but also facilitates the dissociation of H2O molecules and the desorption of H*, thus resulting in a higher photocatalytic activity of GCN- Pt3Co.

The transfection efficiency of dendrigraft poly-L-lysine (DGL) polymers as gene carriers is greatly affected by their limited endosomal escape ability, although they have many other advantages suitable for gene carrier. In this research, we screened efficient and safe siRNA vectors with enhanced endosomal escape ability based on DGL polymers by constructing a library of phenylboronic acid modified DGL polymers (PBA-DGLs) for in vitro and in vivo breast cancer therapy

We successfully realize the heterogenization of molecular corrole compounds through the construction of custom-designed porous organic polymer (POPs) from functionalized metallocorrole complexes as the building units benefiting from the bottom-up approach, wherein CorPOP-1(Mn) shows the high heterogeneous catalytic performance in the context of carbon dioxide cycloaddition to form cyclic carbonates under mild reaction conditions.

In this study, pH-responsive iron–catechin nanoparticles are obtained via a facile metal–organic coordination process, promoting osteogenic differentiation and inhibiting adipogenic differentiation of stem cells. These nanoparticles also exhibit anti-inflammatory effect and are beneficial for bone tissue regeneration, which have great prospect of application in osteoinductive drugs, immunomodulators, and antiobesity agents.
