Electrostatic field-controlled molecular response is observed in MoS2-graphene heterostructure with a thin bottom graphene layer. A molecular memory operation is achieved in MoS2-graphene heterostructure for an ultrasensitive molecular interaction leading to molecular memory device with ultrafast recovery.

CsPbBrxI3–x thin films featuring nano-sized crystallites were prepared via incorporating multiple ammonium ligands in a one-step spincoating route. The CsPbBrxI3–x light-emitting diode (LED), adopting a conventional device structure of indium-doped tin oxide (ITO)/ poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT: PSS)/CsPbBrxI3–x/[6, 6]-phenyl C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM)/ bathocuproine (BCP)/Al, showed a pure-red color at 659 nm, low turn-on voltage (1.6 V), high brightness (2,859 cd·m−2), and high external quantum efficiency (8.94%).

To fabricate the reproducible electronic devices with high electronic properties, and optimization of the doping reaction condition for two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors is important. Herein, we examined the organic doping reaction on 2D semiconductors using four different dopants, and it showed the effective functionalization using mild reactive molecules only provided high Ion/Ioff and mobility.

Disulfiram incorporated HKUST nanodrugs (DSF@HKUST) have been designed and served for biocompatible efficient synergetic tumor chemotherapy and nanocatalytic therapy. The tumor-responsive degradation of HKUST-framework enables the intratumoral copper supply and subsequent activation of DSF drug to form cytotoxic chemotherapeutic species Cu(DDTC)2, simultaneously triggering the Cu+-mediated Fenton-like reactions for highly actives hydroxyl radicals production. The in-situ generation of these toxic species synergistically contributes to satisfied nanocatalytic tumor therapy with high biocompatibility.

Two-dimensional (2D) coordination nanosheets composed of Zn2+ and tetrakis(4-carboxyphenyl) porphyrin (TCPP) are fabricated. Such 2D nanosheets show high loading capacity of oligodeoxynucleotides such as CpG, function as whole-tumor-cell vaccines to trigger tumorspecific immune responses. With the application of sonication, strengthened anti-tumor immune responses are achieved for highly effective cancer treatment.

Nanocapsules with fine hollow microstructure, which can effectively degrade in the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are synthesized for the delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) and glucose oxidase (GOx) to enable multi-model therapy with suppressed tumor multidrug resistance (MDR). Two mechanisms, production inhibition and consumption of intracellular ATP, are achieved in one therapeutic platform to tackle the challenges of P-gp suppression and anticancer drug efflux. Due to the successful construction of DOX/GOx/HFe-TA nanocapsules, the agitated glucose consumption, promoted ROS induction and enhanced drug accumulation occur intracellularly in a synergistic manner to enable considerable tumor inhibition both in vitro and in vivo.

This article proposes a novel flexible transistor design that can implement logic gate, memory, and artificial synapse functions using a single IGZO (InGaZnO, indium-gallium-zinc-oxide) transistor. This design can accelerate the development of flexible electronics that require a higher level of device integration.

By using resonant Raman scattering technology, this work studies the breakdown of polarization Raman selection in few-layer WS2. A new Raman tensor determined by the intraband Fröhlich interaction between phonons and dark excitons dominates the polarized response of scattering signal (phonons).
