Biomolecular interactions of targeted nanoliposomes (tNLs) with solid tumor receptors in vivo are elusive. Here, for the first time, tNLs specific for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are used with near-infrared (NIR) molecular imaging for non-invasive quantitation of their in vivo molecular specificity towards tumor EGFR. We also show that tumor specificity is independent of tumor selective delivery. The purpose of targeting is thus emphasized and tNL development is encouraged, given that the principal goal for targeting is in vivo molecular specificity.

A novel carbon foam integrated by hollow carbon bubble nanoreactors with ultrahigh pore volume and adjustable wall thickness is meticulously designed for high-energy Li-S batteries. When the hollow carbon bubble nanoreactors possess a suitable wall thickness, excellent electrochemical performance can be achieved even with a ultrahigh sulfur content (> 90 wt.%).

We introduce an optical slot-antenna-coupled cavity (SAC) framework, simultaneously enhancing the absorption of atomically thin singlelayer graphene by up to 20× and potentially enabling its electrical gating as a step towards tunable two-dimensional (2D) photonic surfaces. This framework synergistically integrates near-field enhancement induced by ultrahigh refractive index semimetal slotantenna with broadband cavity resonances in visible and infrared regimes, far exceeding the performance of conventional optical antennas or Fabry-Perot cavities alone.

Atomic Fe-Zn pairs anchored on porous N-doped carbons (Fe-Zn-SA/NC) were prepared as efficient oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts in the whole pH range. It achieves competitive half-wave potentials in 0.1 M HClO4 (0.78 V), 0.1 M KOH (0.85 V) and 0.1 M phosphate buffer saline (PBS) (0.72 V) solutions, as well as respectable stability. This work demonstrates the great potential of Fe-Zn pairs as a substitute for Pt catalysts towards efficient ORR.

An ultrathick (≈ 1 mm) organic cathode is developed by utilizing the synergetic effect of the non-covalent functionalized graphene flakes and robust cellulose nanofiber-intermingled architecture. Due to the well-developed ion/electron pathways throughout the entire cathode thickness, the multi-redox phenazine-based organic rechargeable batteries exhibit high energy of 9.4 mWh·cm−2 (= 864 Wh·kg−1), as well as enhanced cycling stability.

In this study, we propose a technique to suppress such carrier trap that uses enhanced interlayer hybridization to saturate danglingbond states, as demonstrated in a strongly interlayer-coupled monolayer-bilayer PtSe2 heterostructure. The hybridization between the unsaturated states and the interlayer electronic states of PtSe2 significantly reduces the depth of carrier traps at the interface, as corroborated by our scanning tunnelling spectroscopic measurements and density functional theory calculations.

The porous rod-like Ni2P/Ni composite exhibits remarkable enhanced urea oxidation reaction (UOR) activities compared to NiO/Ni, owing to the selective phosphating strategy, high electrocatalytic activity, and excellent cycle stability. The strategy of fabricating metal phosphides-metal assemblies offers an idea for further development of excellent electrocatalysts.
