A remotely inducible hydrogelation system involving an alternating magnetic field and superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles was successfully developed. This system achieves on-demand hydrogel formation that can be noninvasively induced by external stimulation at deep tissue sites.

We synthesized TPA-T-CyP,which is a red&NIR-emitting luminogen with AIE features that can spontaneously and specifically aggregate on mitochondria without encapsulation or surface modification, and can be used for dynamic mitochondrial STED nanoscopy in live cells. The movement,fission,and fusion of mitochondria are clearly observable,with lateral spatial resolution of 74 nm.

Nickel-iron layered double hydroxide nanoparticles were immobilized on etched carbon nanoelectrodes directly from a suspension. The effect of electrochemical aging on the intrinsic activity of the immobilized material was also investigated for the oxygen evolution reaction in alkaline media.

We report systematic studies of the dependence of transition-metal doping on the activation of catalytic activity in NiSe2 by first principles calculations. Fe-doped NiSe2 porous nanosheets grown on carbon cloth are successfully developed and show significantly improved HER efficiency.

Multifunctional dendritic nanoparticles were incorporated into a poly (D, L-lactide-co-glycolide)-poly (ethylene glycol)-poly (D, Llactide-co-glycolide)(PLGA-PEG-PLGA) triblock copolymers thermosensitive injectable hydrogel matrix to construct a localized drug delivery system for combining chemotherapy and immunotherapy.

Iron-silver nanoparticles, fabricated via a physical technique, were thoroughly characterized with regard to their structural, plasmonic, and magnetic properties. The two elements segregated, and the particles showed both plasmonic and magnetic responses, allowing them to be studied from different comple-mentary angles.

We developed platelet membrane-coated PLGA nanoparticles to target drugs for the treatment of RA. By disguising them with a “uniform” comprised of a natural platelet membrane, these synthetic NPs were able to acquire biological functions similar to those of platelets.

The bandgap at the grain boundaries in single-layer MoS2 is usually reduced relative to the bulk material owing to the emergence of defect states. In this study, we observed bandgap broadening at the grain boundaries in single-layer MoS2.
