Metal nanoparticles, supported on amorphous SiO2, form nanopores in the SiO2 when heated above 1,000⊥. In this paper, we show that this behavior is general to a variety of metals (Au, Ag, Cu, Pd, and Pt) and demonstrate a way to control the extent of entrenchment. Further, we propose a mechanism and explain that this entrenchment occurs due to the glass-transition exhibited by amorphous SiO2.

The hydroxylation level of BK may reflect the P4HA1 expression level regulated by oncogenic KRAS in PDAC. BK and Hyp-BK can be captured by nanotrap and detected by MS and the ratio of their peak area can serve as a potential biomarker for PDAC diagnosis.

We proposed a new strategy to stabilize perovskite nanocrystals (NCs) in the resin film from the view of packaging process: adding protective ligands into the perovskite NCs resin composite, then encapsulating them on blue light emitting diodes (LED) chips. Surprisingly, by this way the LED devices (20 mA, 2.7 V) can keep 80% of the initial photoluminescence (PL) intensity for more than 50 h, while the devices without adding protective ligands dropped to 50% of the initial PL intensity within 6 h.
