In the present study, we investigate the morphology of an organic layer (2, 2', 6, 6'-tetraphenyl-4, 4'-dipyranylidene, DIPO-Ph4) deposited under vacuum on a silicon nitride (Si3N4) substrate. The films were characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM) to gain insight into the material growth.

In situ aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy in combination with ab initio molecular dynamics simulations is used to reveal the epitaxial growth dynamics of monolayer graphene. Three SiC (1100) layers decompose successively to form one graphene layer;less stable carbon clusters and a network are formed as transition structures after sublimation of the first and second layers.

An electrocatalytic approach based on single-layer graphene-encapsulated metal nanohybrids was shown to represent an effective strategy for developing radioprotective biomaterials. The screened nanoparticles exhibit high catalytic activity in the scavenging of oxygen radicals, leading to an overall survival rate of gamma ray-irradiated mice up to 90%, outperforming the commercial radioprotection agent amifostine.
