An interfacial assembly strategy has been developed for the construction of TiO2 heterostructure modified with carbon nitride nanosheets (CN-NSs). The uniform dispersion of TiO2 nanoparticles effectively restrains the re-stacking of ultrathin layers, resulting in a high specific surface area of 234.0 m2·g−1, and enhanced photocatalytic efficiency for the degradation of dyes and H2 production.

Water monomers,dimers,and trimers show different adsorption properties on silicene.On silicene,hydrogen bonding in dimers and trimers of water induces a transition from physisorption to chemisorption and then to dissociation.Unlike other 2D materials, silicene is hydrophilic owing to this hydrogen bond autocatalytic effect.

A far-ranging approach aiming at developing a new generation of drug delivery systems applicable beyond the point-of-care setting has been developed. This strategy shows great promise in those scenarios requiring a lengthy and yet switchable release of therapeutic agents.

A high-performance photodetector based on a hybrid structure consisting of electrospun ZnO nanofibers and perovskite films is demonstrated. Compared to pristine ZnO or perovskite, the hybrid photodetector shows increased on-off ratio, faster response speed, and higher responsivity and detectivity.

Au@MIL-100(Fe) NP arrays modified with 3-aminophenylboronic acid hemisulfate exhibited sensitive responses to different glucose concentrations with good selectivity. The surface plasma resonance and diffraction peaks exhibited satisfactory complementary sensitivity to glucose detection in different concentration regions.

Penta-twinned bipyramidal Au microcrystallites with a highly corrugated morphology host unconventional non-FCC Au phases. The mole-fraction of non-face-centered cubic (non-FCC) Au is varied simply by changing the shape-directing Ag (I) content and the thermolysis temperature. The highest mole fraction of non-FCC Au achieved was 85%. The strained non-FCC phases obtained exhibited nearly three orders of magnitude higher catalytic activity compared to that from the FCC phase or from an uncatalyzed reaction. This catalytic improvement is due to the higher d-band energy associated with the non-FCC phases.

First,we prepared the positively charged RGI1.8k,which could load more ICG molecules and could be more effectively internalized into the cells than the negatively charged RGIsolv..The resulting RGI1.8k-ICG showed excellent phototherapy,magnetic resonance imaging,and thermal imaging with the help of magnetic targeting in vitro and in vivo.

A rational strategy for nonpolar axial-oriented growth and switching was developed to sculpt single-crystalline kinked wurtzite MnSe nanowires in a facile solution-based procedure. The ability to continuously switch the nonpolar axial-growth orientation allowed us to craft the multiply kinking landscape.
