汐-MoO3 belt crystals consisting of nanosheets stacked along their [010]-axes have been synthesized (without intentional use of a substrate) and further exfoliated to form 2D nanosheets. Raman mode softening of Ag (~818 cm−1) was observed from the thinner layers and theoretically validated for the first time. Aqueous exfoliation induces a blue shift in the 汐-MoO3 nanosheet absorption edge.

The reducing ability of anions intercalated in the interlayer of nickeliron layered double hydroxides (NiFe-LDHs) has an important impact on the catalytic activity of these compounds for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER). Anions with low standard redox potential and strong reducing ability transfer more electrons to the hydroxide layers. The resulting electron-rich metal sites can thus enhance the OER performance of the NiFe-LDHs.

Labeling cells with (Gd-DOTA)i-triphenylphosphonium (TPP) via electroporation results in two distinct cellular distributions of (Gd-DOTA)i-TPP: freely and evenly distributed in the cytosol or cell-assembled nanoclusters in the cytoplasm. The (Gd-DOTA)i-TPP nanoclusters not only promote its intracellular retention time but also induce a significant magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal reduction, which act as an excellent T2 contrast agent and allows for unambiguous reporting of in vivo viability and migration of cell transplants under T2-weighted MRIs over a long period.

We employ the scotch tape exfoliation technique to peel the mica, which is made possible due to its perfect cleavage along the basal plane. The mica substrate allows for memristor devices with superior flexibility and thermostability, which may potentially lead to the realization of high-temperature memristors for application in biologically-inspired computing systems.
