Biomimetic nanochannels gain various responsive abilities from multifarious modification. Based on external electric-field assisted noncovalent interaction, a novel universal modifying strategy is capable to further expand application scenarios of solid-state nanochannels by significant improvements in the convenience and the compatibilities.

Oblique nanowires own anti-vapor-penetration and microdrop selftransport functions under high subcooling, unaffected by microscale gaps, which originates from the co-operation of vapor molecule interception, low solid-liquid adhesion and driving force from asymmetric surface tension and coalescence-released surface energy. This new design idea helps develop more advanced mass and heat transfer interfaces.

Dielectric substrates of extreme-low permittivity and loss-factor based on ultra-high porosity silica foams coated with cellulose nanofiber thin films are proposed. By sputter deposition of Ag through a shadow mask on the surfaces, dual split-ring resonator arrays are made to demonstrate filters for future 6G telecommunication in the sub-THz band.

A straightforward method has been developed to fabricate metalorganic framework (MOF)/polymer nanofibrous membranes via electrospinning stock solution consisting of MOF precursors and polymer. The obtained HKUST-1/PAN electrospun membranes having uniform MOF dispersions and strong mechanical properties were applied as the separators in Li-metal full batteries, which exhibited greatly improved the cycling performance.

To achieve a thorough comprehending of the underlying formaldehyde photooxidation mechanism, especially the exact role of H2O molecules, we designed two-dimensional ultrathin sheets as ideal models to clearly unveil the mechanism of H2O-mediated formaldehyde photooxidation at the atomic level, by virtue of time-resolved in-situ characterization technology.
