Polyethyleneimine-oligonucleotide fluorescent polyplex imaging probes can distinguish pluripotent stem cells from heterogeneous cells within 30 min by sensing specific target miRNAs associated with pluripotency of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) without affecting pluripotency.

A durable and highly active electrochemical hydrogen-evolution reaction catalyst based on defect-rich TiO2 nanoparticles loaded on Co nanoparticles@N-doped carbon nanotubes is synthesized by electrostatic spinning and a subsequent calcining process. It exhibits a small onset potential of -57.5 mV and a Tafel slope of 73.5 mV·dec-1.

Vertically aligned arrays of mesocrystalline anatase TiO2 nanosheets with exposed {001} facets were fabricated through a fluorine-free topotactic transformation approach. An efficiency of 8.85% was achieved for a dye-sensitized solar cell based on double-layered TiO2 nanosheet arrays.

Natural two-dimensional kaolinite nanoclay incorporated into an emerging drug delivery system could feasibly pave a way towards high-performance nanotherapeutics, with a high level of biocompatibility and very low toxicity towards pancreatic cancer, gastric cancer,prostate cancer,breast cancer,colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer,and differentiated thyroid cancer cells. FITC-labeled original kaolinite (Kaolin) and Kaolin intercalation compounds (green) were shown to be gradually taken up by the cells and demonstrated good colocalization with lysosome (Lamp1, red).

Carbon-coated SiC@C nanocapsules (NCs) with a hexagonal platelet-like morphology were fabricated by a simple direct current (DC) arc-discharge plasma method. The carbon shells of SiC@C NCs were subsequently converted into SiO2 shells by a heat-treatment process at 650℃ in air, during such a process the shape and inherent characters of crystalline SiC core were inherited.
