A novel host-guest luminous system composed of Y2O3:Eu3+/ (Eu/Y-BTC) is affected by the synergy of quantum confinement, spatial confinement and antenna effect, and the absorption of nearultraviolet light increases. The absorption and emission of light are effectively enhanced, and it has shown important application value in the research field of white light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs).

The spider web-like carbonized bacterial cellulose/MoSe2 composite was fabricated by a facile process and economical raw materials, which have enhanced microwave attenuation performance and tunable absorption bands. The composite effectively solves the problems of impedance mismatch caused by pure bacterial cellulose and high filler content caused by pure MoSe2, offsetting respective shortcomings.

This study explores the potential of Sn atoms to form two-dimensional (2D) freestanding single-atom-thick Sn patches in graphene pores. 2D membranes of three or more atoms adopted either a star-like or close-packed structural configuration.

A rational strategy for nonpolar axial-oriented growth and switching was developed to sculpt single-crystalline kinked wurtzite MnSe nanowires in a facile solution-based procedure. The ability to continuously switch the nonpolar axial-growth orientation allowed us to craft the multiply kinking landscape.

A simple spontaneous polymerization strategy was developed to fabricate mass-produced VöVP cathodes with a tunable oxygen vacancy (Vö) concentration in vanadium oxide. The electrochemical performance of VöVP cathodes can directly be controllable by the concentration of Vö.

Apoptotic cellular debris at the core of atherosclerotic plaques may produce inflammation and instability leading to heart attacks. We show here that single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), which display exquisite selectivity for inflammatory monocytes/ macrophages, can deliver a potent small molecule intracellular inhibitor highly selective for SHP1 via pH-dependent release to re-stimulate macrophage uptake of apoptotic cellular debris.
