A drastic reorganization of a copper surface, commonly used as an electrode material for functional electronic devices incorporating organic semiconductors, was discovered upon adsorption of vanadyl phthalocyanine (VOPc) molecules. The thermal stability of the VOPc/Cu (110) interface was tested and the enhancements in the “sculpting” of the copper crystal by the VOPc adsorbate were clearly demonstrated.

A series of Pt−Cu alloy nanocrystals with concave octahedron, porous octahedron, yolk-shell, and nanoflower structures were fabricated by altering the sequential reduction kinetics by a one-pot aqueous phase synthesis. These exhibit excellent catalytic performances in the electrooxidation of methanol and formic acid.

The AUDG-MCDA-LFB technique merges enzymatic digestion of contaminants and multiple cross displacement amplification with a lateral flow biosensor for the rapid and visual detection of nucleic acid sequences. This technique can effectively eliminate and prevent the occurrence of false-positives arising from carryover contamination, primer-dimers, and the environment.
