Three-dimensional hybrid plasmon systems composed of ordered Ag nanocone arrays decorated with high-density Au nanoparticles are constructed by a template-assisted physical vapor deposition approach. Such structures allow for multiple plasmon couplings among various resonance modes, producing intense and high-density hot spots which boost a high-performance surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) detection with high sensitivity, high reproducibility, and quantitative analysis ability.

Our reported treatment can selectively and greatly enhance intracellular O2 and reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels in tumor region, which depends on two-step catalytic properties of nanoceria (Ce4+/Ce3+ = 3.46, neutral surface charge, mostly localize into the cytoplasm, pH 7.4–6.5, catalase-like catalytic agents convert to Ce4+/Ce3+ = 0.58, negative surface charge, mostly localize into the lysosomes, pH 5–4, oxidase-like catalytic agents, triggered by near infrared (NIR) laser irradiation).

Two birds with one stone: Metal nanoparticle (MNP)/metalorganic framework (MOF) composites exert superior performance in photocatalysis than their individual counterparts. This review introduced the synthesis strategies of MNP@MOF composites and highlighted their recent progress in photocatalytic hydrogenation, carbon dioxide reduction, organic transformations and degradation of pollutants.

ZnS nanowires (NWs) have been grown by two different approaches based on the physical state of the catalyst, specifically called vapor–liquid–solid (VLS) and vapor–solid–solid (VSS). Both approaches present unique structural properties, and remarkably, the crystallization of a 15R structure is highlighted in NWs grown by the VLS process.

This work proposed a new type of multi-level quasi-volatile memory based on organic vertical transistor. Contributing to vertical structure and appropriate doping ratio of blend film, the different memory current levels with highly fault-tolerant could be achieved along with these features of high writing speed and decent retention characteristics, which fill the gap between volatile and non-volatile memories.
