      Solar-light-driven photocatalytic water splitting to generate H2 energy is one of the most promising green technologies for clean and renewable energy demand. A facile method of fabricating a nitrogen-doped hierarchical porous TiO2 nanostructured photo catalyst without using any templates is developed. As J. Y. Park and co-workers report in article 1300018, Au-loaded TiO2 photocatalysts exhibit hierarchical porous architecture and enhanced photocatalytic activity for water splitting.

      Polymeric Thin Films: Stratified Polymer Grafts: Synthesis and Characterization of Layered ‘Brush’ and ‘Gel’ Structures (Adv. Mater. Interfaces 1/2014)

      Ang Li, Shivaprakash N. Ramakrishna, Prathima C. Nalam, Edmondo M. Benetti and Nicholas D. Spencer

      Article first published online: 14 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201470007

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Colloidal-probe atomic force microscopy is used by E. M. Benetti, N. D. Spencer, and co-workers in article 1300007 to investigate the mechanical and tribological properties of brush-gel systems under a good solvent (for the brush). While combined nanoindentation and adhesion measurements show clear indications of the brush-gel architecture, it is tribological measurements that confirm the layered structure: at small sliding amplitudes, the probe remains stationary on the gel and the brush stretches. Only once the restoring force of the brush exceeds the static friction on the gel does the probe begin to slide.

    1. High Throughput Printing of Nanostructured Carbon Electrodes for Supercapacitors

      Binh Duong, Zenan Yu, Palash Gangopadhyay, Supapan Seraphin, N. Peyghambarian and Jayan Thomas

      Article first published online: 21 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300014

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A fast, simple, and highly efficient method is reported to develop large area nanostructured carbon electrodes by spin-on nanoprinting using carbon precursor polymer, polyacrylonitrile. Supercapacitors developed using these carbon electrodes exhibit an order of magnitude improvement in energy and power density compared to planar carbon electrodes. Even without a metal current collector, performance of these electrodes is comparable to other state-of-the-art materials.

    2. Stratified Polymer Grafts: Synthesis and Characterization of Layered ‘Brush’ and ‘Gel’ Structures

      Ang Li, Shivaprakash N. Ramakrishna, Prathima C. Nalam, Edmondo M. Benetti and Nicholas D. Spencer

      Article first published online: 21 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300007

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Stratified polyacrylamide films featuring polymer-brush and polymer-gel blocks are fabricated by sequential, surface-initiated, photoiniferter-mediated polymerization. Use of selective solvent mixtures during re-initiation allows the formation of well-defined brush and gel layers with graded properties. Nano-mechanical and tribological characterization by colloidal-probe AFM clarifies the architecture of each layer and determines the film properties under application of normal and lateral forces.

      Guo Liang Li, Matthias Schenderlein, Yongjun Men, Helmuth Möhwald and Dmitry G. Shchukin

      Article first published online: 4 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300019

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The highly efficient “one-pot” synthesis of corrosion inhibitor-loaded polymeric core–shell nanocontainers is reported for self-healing organic anticorrosion coatings. In addition to well-defined morphology, narrow size distribution, stimuli-responsive release, low-cost, and scalable fabrication, the polymeric nanocontainers also show high dispersibility in aqueous solution for water-borne processing and excellent compatibility with the organic coating matrix for self-healing anticorrosion protection without any external energy input.

    4. Superhydrophobic and Superoleophilic Boron Nitride Nanotube-Coated Stainless Steel Meshes for Oil and Water Separation

      Yuanlie Yu, Hua Chen, Yun Liu, Vincent Craig, Lu Hua Li and Ying Chen

      Article first published online: 8 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300002

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) that can directly grow on the surface of stainless steel mesh via a vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) growth process are developed by a simple, cheap and scalable approach. The resultant superhydrophobic and superoleophilic BNNT-coated meshes can efficiently separate insoluble oil from water. Most importantly, such BNNT-coated meshes are stable and durable making it a promising candidate for oil-polluted water treatments.

      Nanometer-Scale Precision Tuning of 3D Photonic Crystals Made Possible Using Polyelectrolytes with Controlled Short Chain Length and Narrow Polydispersity

      Zhuo Wang, Mauricio E. Calvo, Georgeta Masson, André C. Arsenault, Frank Peiris, Marc Mamak, Hernán Míguez, Ian Manners and Geoffrey A. Ozin

      Article first published online: 11 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300051

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Nanometer-scale tuning of the optical properties of prefabricated photonic crystals is achieved via layer-by-layer assembly of polyelectrolytes in the interstitial spaces of the photonic lattice. The key to the approach is using polyelectrolytes with controlled short chain lengths. This ensures they do not block the air voids, thereby maintaining uniform coating and thus precise and reproducible optical tuning.

      Electrostatic Modulation of LaAlO3/SrTiO3 Interface Transport in an Electric Double-Layer Transistor

      Wei-Nan Lin, Jun-Feng Ding, Shu-Xiang Wu, Yong-Feng Li, James Lourembam, Santiranjan Shannigrahi, Shi-Jie Wang and Tom Wu

      Article first published online: 13 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300001

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Electrostatic modulation on the two-dimensional transport of the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface in an electric double-layer transistor is demonstrated. The induced insulator-to-metal transition exhibits the nature of charge-density-driven percolation, and the Kondo effect governs the low-temperature interface transport under high bias. The results underscore the important role of inhomogeneity and localized spins in the two-dimensional transport of oxide interfaces.

    7. Development of a Protein Mimic with Peptide Ligands to Enhance Specific Sensing and Targeting by the Zwitterionic Surface Engineering of Poly(amido amine) Dendrimers

      Longgang Wang, Juan Zhang, Weifeng Lin, Zhen Wang and Shengfu Chen

      Article first published online: 4 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300059

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A full layer of zwitterionic carboxybetaine-modified G5 PAMAM with extra targeting c(RGDyK) motifs shows excellent biocompatibility and about 100 times higher efficacy than free c(RGDyK) motifs while high selectivity of c(RGDyK) is preserved. This work provides a rational method to design protein-like molecules to obtain therapeutic function.

    8. Microporous Conjugated Polymers with Enhanced Emission in Immiscible Two-Phase System in Response to Surfactants

      Shin-Il Kim, Young-Jae Jin, Wang-Eun Lee, Ri Yu, Sang-Joon Park, Hyo-Jin Kim, Kyu-Ho Song and Giseop Kwak

      Article first published online: 4 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300029

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A microporous, conjugated polymer with a conformation-variable stack structure is highly responsive to a change in the surface tension of water, either physicochemically or electronically. The polymer film and powder become readily wet with water by the addition of (bio)surfactants to reveal emission-enhanced fluorescence, which are applied to saponin detection, image patterning and ink-jet printing.

      Three-Dimensional Graphene Composite Macroscopic Structures for Capture of Cancer Cells

      Shengyan Yin, Yun-Long Wu, Benhui Hu, Yu Wang, Pingqiang Cai, Chek Kun Tan, Dianpeng Qi, Liyan Zheng, Wan Ru Leow, Nguan Soon Tan, Shutao Wang and Xiaodong Chen

      Article first published online: 19 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300043

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A hierarchical nanostructured 3D platform is reported that combines microporosity with a nanostructure for selective capture of cancer cells. The microporosity allows red blood cells to travel through, while the anti-EpCAM modified nanostructure captures circulating tumor cells. These systems allow for considerable increase in the contact frequency between target cells and the substrate, thus enhancing the cancer cell filtration and isolation efficiency.

      Large-area silver (Ag)-coated black silicon is fabricated for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) applications by cryogenic deep reactive ion etching with inductively coupled plasma. An enhancement factor of 6.8×109 is achieved in the SERS measurement by optimizing the spike profile and the Ag coating thickness. The presented work can give practical guidelines for designing Ag-coated black silicon for surface plasmon related applications.
