The length of the sheet used to form a folded structure in singlelayer MoS2 has a very different influence on the electronic and thermal properties of these materials.

A polyurethane (PU) sponge coated with silver nanowires was used as a stretchable current collector and combined with electrode materials via a facile dip-coating method. A stretchable Zn-MnO2 full battery was prepared, which provided a stable power supply even under 100% strain.

A comprehensive theoretical investigation of the CO oxidation activity and stability of FeOx-supported metal single-atom active sites was conducted with density functional theory (DFT). The metals considered included all of the 3d, 4d, and 5d metals from group VIII to IB. The theoretical analyses revealed the fundamental mechanisms of the interactions between the atomically dispersed single metal atoms on the FeOx substrate and aid in the design of highly active FeOx-supported single-atom catalysts (SACs).

Specific surface, lifetime, and separation of photogenerated charges in molecular sieve titanium phosphate increased after introducing a mesoporous structure and coupling a proper amount of SnO2, greatly improving the photoactivities for 2,4-dichlorophenol degradation and CO oxidation.·O2 is formed by transferring electrons to SnO2 and then by reacting with O2 as the dominant active species to induce the degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol.

Labeling cells with (Gd-DOTA)i-triphenylphosphonium (TPP) via electroporation results in two distinct cellular distributions of (Gd-DOTA)i-TPP: freely and evenly distributed in the cytosol or cell-assembled nanoclusters in the cytoplasm. The (Gd-DOTA)i-TPP nanoclusters not only promote its intracellular retention time but also induce a significant magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal reduction, which act as an excellent T2 contrast agent and allows for unambiguous reporting of in vivo viability and migration of cell transplants under T2-weighted MRIs over a long period.
