Currently, monitoring the ecological conditions of watercourses is overly unitary and inefficient and is burdened by high costs. A cost-effective, efficient, self-powered sensor for incorporating the Internet of Things (IoT) into the surveillance of riverine ecosystems is lacking. This manuscript introduces a device designed for energy harvesting and sensing through a triboelectric-electromagnetic generator (CX-TEHG). The CX-TEHG is composed of a wind-driven electromagnetic generator (F-EMG), a river-driven electromagnetic generator (W-EMG), a triboelectric nanogenerator for measuring flow velocity (W-TENG), and another triboelectric nanogenerator for gauging the speed of floodwater level rise (F-TENG)...

Work function of organometallic halide perovskite (OHP) films is one of the most crucial photoelectric properties, which dominates the carrier dynamics in OHP-based devices. Despite surface treatments by additives being widely used to promote crystallization and passivate defects in OHP films, these chemical strategies for modulation of work functions face two trade-offs: homogeneity on the surface versus along the thickness; the range versus the accuracy of modulation. Herein, by using ferroelectric substrates of uniform polarization and subnanometer roughness, homogeneous CH3 NH3 PbI3 films are fabricated with five states of work functions with large spanning (∼0...

Poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO)-based composite electrolytes (PCEs) are considered as promising candidates for next-generation lithium-metal batteries (LMBs) due to their high safety, easy fabrication, and good electrochemical stability. Here, we utilize operando grazing-incidence small-angle and wide-angle X-ray scattering to probe the correlation of electrochemically induced changes and the buried morphology and crystalline structure of the PCE. Results show that the two irreversible reactions, PEO-Li+ reduction and TFSI- decomposition, cause changes in the crystalline structure, array orientation, and morphology of the PCE...

The removal of toxic heavy metal ions from water resources is crucial for environmental protection and public health. In this study, we address this challenge by developing a surface functionalization technique for the selective adsorption of these contaminants. Our approach involves atomic layer deposition (ALD) followed by vapor-phase silanization of porous substrates. We utilized porous silica gel powder (∼100 μm particles, 89 m2 /g surface area, ∼30 nm pores) as an initial substrate...

LiFePO4 is widely used because of its high safety and cycle stability, but its inefficient electronic conductivity combined with sluggish Li+ diffusivity restricts its performance. To overcome this obstacle, applying a layer of conductive carbon onto the surface of LiFePO4 has the greatest improvement in electronic conductivity and Li+ diffusivity. However, the rate performance of carbon-coated LiFePO4 makes it difficult to meet the application requirements. Although nitrogen doping improves electrochemical performance by providing active sites and electronic conductivity, the N-doped carbon coating is prone to agglomeration, which causes a sharp decrease in capacity when the current rate increases...

The depletion of lithium resources has prompted exploration into alternative rechargeable energy storage systems, and potassium-ion batteries (PIBs) have emerged as promising candidates. As an active cathode material for PIBs, potassium vanadate (K x V2 O5 ) usually suffers from structural damage during electrochemical K-ion insertion/extraction and hence leading to unsatisfactory cycling performance. Here, we introduce Ca2+ ions as pillars into the potassium vanadate to enhance its structural stability and smooth its phase transition behavior...

The development of new high-performance photodetectors (PDs) is currently focused on achieving small size, low power consumption, low cost, and large bandwidth. Two-dimensional (2D) materials and heterostructures offer promising approaches for the future development of optoelectronic devices. However, there has been limited research on 2D wide-bandgap semiconductor heterostructures. In this study, we successfully constructed a MoS2 /MoO3 vdW heterojunction PD. This PD exhibited excellent response and significant photovoltaic behavior in the ultraviolet (UV) to visible (Vis) range...

Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a promising cancer therapeutic approach due to its spatial selectivity and high potency. Indocyanine green (ICG) has been considered a biocompatible PTT agent. However, ICG has several challenges to hinder its clinical use including rapid blood clearance and instability to heat, light, and solvent, leading to a loss of photoactivation property and PTT efficacy. Herein, we leveraged stabilizing components, methyl-β-cyclodextrin and liposomes, in one nanoplatform (ICD lipo) to enhance ICG stability and the photothermal therapeutic effect against cancer...

Two-dimensional materials hold great potentials for beyond-CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) electronical and optoelectrical applications, and the development of field effect transistors (FET) with excellent performance using such materials is of particular interest. How to improve the performance of devices thus becomes an urgent issue. The performance of FETs depends greatly on the intrinsic electrical properties of the channel materials, meanwhile the device interface quality, such as extrinsic scattering of charged impurities, charge traps, and substrate surface roughness have a great influence on the performance...

Supramolecular biomaterials can recapitulate the structural and functional facets of the native extracellular matrix and react to biochemical cues, leveraging the unique attributes of noncovalent interactions, including reversibility and tunability. However, the low mechanical properties of supramolecular biomaterials can restrict their utilization in specific applications. Combining the advantages of supramolecular polymers with covalent polymers can lead to the fabrication of tailor-made biomaterials with enhanced mechanical properties/degradability...

In the context of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) failure, local delivery enables the release of higher concentrations of drugs that can suppress neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) while reducing systemic adverse effects. However, the radiolucency of polymeric delivery systems hinders long-term in vivo surveillance of safety and efficacy. We hypothesize that using a radiopaque perivascular wrap to deliver anti-NIH drugs could enhance AVF maturation. Through electrospinning, we fabricated multifunctional perivascular polycaprolactone (PCL) wraps loaded with bismuth nanoparticles (BiNPs) for enhanced radiologic visibility and drugs that can attenuate NIH─rosuvastatin (Rosu) and rapamycin (Rapa)...

All-solid-state lithium (Li) batteries have attracted considerable interest due to their potential in high energy density as well as safety. However, the realization of a stable Li/solid-state electrolyte (SSE) interface remains challenging. Herein, two-dimensional graphene-like C3 N4 (g-C3 N4 ) as a coating layer on Li1.3 Al0.3 Ti1.7 (PO4 )3 (LATP) electrolyte (LATP@CN) has been applied to construct the stable Li/SSE interface. The g-C3 N4 layer is uniformly coated on the LATP surface using the in situ calcination method, which not only enhances the dispersibility of LATP particles in poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) through the interaction between surface functional groups but also suppresses the side reactions between Li and LATP...

Utilizing both nitrate and acetate metal precursors, we conducted a comprehensive analysis of material properties through X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Our findings reveal enhanced crystallinity and significant oxide decomposition within the examined temperature range...

A tumor microenvironment (TME)-responsive nanoprobe composed of a fluorescent dye-decorated silicon (Si) nanosphere core and a thin MnO2 shell is proposed for simple and intelligent detection of cancer cells. The Si nanosphere core with diameters of 100-200 nm provides environment-independent Mie scattering imaging, while, simultaneously, the MnO2 shell provides the capability to switch the on/off state of the dye fluorescence reacted to the glutathione (GSH) and/or H2 O2 levels in a cancer cell. Si-MnO2 core-shell nanosphere probes are fabricated in a solution-based process from crystalline Si nanosphere cores...

In-memory computing may make it possible to realize non-von Neumann computing because the logic circuits are unified in the memory units. We investigated two types of in-memory logic operations, namely, two-input logic circuits and multifunctional artificial synapses. These were realized in a dual-gate antiambipolar transistor (AAT) with a ReS2 /WSe2 heterojunction, in which polystyrene with a zinc phthalocyanine core (ZnPc-PS4 ) was incorporated as a memory layer. Here, reconfigurability is a key concept for both types of device operations and was achieved by merging the Λ-shaped transfer curve of the AAT and the nonvolatile memory effect of ZnPc-PS4 ...

Graphene is widely used in excellent thermal interface materials (TIMs), thanks to its remarkably high in-plane thermal conductivity ( k ∥ ). However, the poor through-plane thermal conductivity ( k ⊥ ) limits its further application. Here, we developed a simple in situ growth method to prepare graphene-based thermal interface composites with positively temperature-dependent thermal conductivity, which loaded aluminum (Al) nanoparticles onto graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs). To evaluate the variations in thermal performance, we determined the thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity of the composites using a laser-flash analyzer and a differential scanning calorimeter, respectively...

The current longevity of dental resins intraorally is limited by susceptibility to acidic attacks from bacterial metabolic byproducts and vulnerability to enzymatic or hydrolytic degradation. Here, we demonstrate synthesizing an ionic liquid-based antibiofilm silane effective against Streptococcus mutans , a major caries pathogen. Furthermore, we incorporate this silane into dental resins, creating antibiofilm- and degradation-resistant materials applicable across resin types. FTIR, UV-vis, and NMR spectroscopy confirmed the synthesis of the expected ionic liquid-based silane...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic and recurrent inflammatory disease caused by abnormalities in skin immunoregulation. House dust mite can directly damage the skin barrier and thus sensitize the skin, which is one of the main allergens inducing AD in humans and widely exists in daily life. Meanwhile, the accompanying bacterial infections and exposure to additional allergens exacerbate the condition by generating excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS). Herein, we have developed the CPDP hydrogel with injectable and self-healing ability to combat pathogenic microorganisms and inflammatory environments for AD therapy...
