      Metal–Organic Frameworks: Highly Adsorptive, MOF-Functionalized Nonwoven Fiber Mats for Hazardous Gas Capture Enabled by Atomic Layer Deposition (Adv. Mater. Interfaces 4/2014)

      Junjie Zhao, Mark D. Losego, Paul C. Lemaire, Philip S. Williams, Bo Gong, Sarah E. Atanasov, Trent M. Blevins, Christopher J. Oldham, Howard J. Walls, Sarah D. Shepherd, Matthew A. Browe, Gregory W. Peterson and Gregory N. Parsons

      Version of Record online: 15 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201470023

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new method for integrating metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) on polymer fibers is developed based on an oxide nucleation layer via atomic layer deposition (ALD). As G. N. Parsons and co-workers report in article 1400040, ALD coating enables uniform MOF coverage on fibers, high MOF loading, and large BET surface area. NH3 breakthrough tests demonstrate high adsorption capacity of the MOF-fiber mats for toxic gas. The synthesis approach is also generally applicable to a wide range of polymer fibers and MOFs. This work represents a breakthrough in the deployment of MOFs for technical applications.

      Troy W. Lowry, Aubrey Kusi-Appiah, Jingjiao Guan, David H. Van Winkle, Michael W. Davidson and Steven Lenhert

      Version of Record online: 4 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300127

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Nanointaglio is a printing process by which ink is transferred from the recesses of the stamp resulting in topographically structured ink patterns. The nanoscale control of lipid ink droplet topography and volume afforded by an intaglio stamp, in combination with pin-spotting, enables lipid arrays to demonstrate size-dependent functionality. The scalable, multi-integrative capabilities of nanointaglio have potential applications in high throughput screening and biosensor arrays.

    3. Fabrication of Fully Fluorinated Graphene Nanosheets Towards High-Performance Lithium Storage

      Liang Zhan, Shubin Yang, Yun Wang, Yanli Wang, Licheng Ling and Xinliang Feng

      Version of Record online: 28 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300149

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Fully fluorinated graphene (F-graphene) nanosheets are fabricated via a simple liquid exfoliation of fluorinated graphite. The resulting F-graphene nanosheets have a very high fluorine content (49.7 at%), 2D, amorphous-like microstructure and thin nature (10 nm). These features render abundant fluorinate active sites for lithium storage and facilitate the rapid diffusion of Li ions during charging and discharging. The resulting F-graphene nanosheets not only delivery a high reversible capacity of 780 mAh g−1, but also exhibit high-rate capability and good cycle performance.

    4. Reversible Switching of Water-Droplet Adhesion on a Superhydrophobic Polythiophene Surface

      Version of Record online: 26 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400113

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A plant-inspired, amine-containing small phenol molecule, 5-pyrogallol 2-aminoethane (PAE), can perform surface functionalization in a material-independent manner. The co-existence of primary amine and pyrogallol moieties are essential for the material-independent coating ability of PAE. The multi-functionality of the PAE-mediated surface chemistry will be useful in many areas including biomedical applications, drug delivery, and the development of energy storage devices.

      Jeffery A. Aguiar, Pratik P. Dholabhai, Zhenxing Bi, Quanxi Jia, Engang G. Fu, Yongqiang Q. Wang, Toshihiro Aoki, Jiangtao Zhu, Amit Misra and Blas. P. Uberuaga

      Version of Record online: 3 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201300142

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Steps act as centers for preferential amorphization in SrTiO3 following Ne++ irradiation, which is attributed to defect flow across the interface induced by non-stoichiometric CeO2. It is demonstrated that interfacial atomic ordering is another method to functionalize radiation-tolerant materials.

    7. Microscale Motion Control through Ferromagnetic Films

      Andrea Benassi, Johannes Schwenk, Miguel A. Marioni, Hans J. Hug and Daniele Passerone

      Version of Record online: 14 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400023

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel micrometer-scale motion control technique is proposed based on the introduction of a tunable magnetic interaction. The latter is realized by coating two sliding bodies with ferromagnetic films hosting magnetic domains. The resulting dynamics is determined by shape, size and ordering of the domains and can be thus controlled by an external magnetic field disclosing a variety of interesting sliding regimes.

    8. GaSe Formation at the Cu(In,Ga)Se2/Mo Interface–A Novel Approach for Flexible Solar Cells by Easy Mechanical Lift-Off

      Benoit Fleutot, Daniel Lincot, Marie Jubault, Zacharie Jehl Li Kao, Negar Naghavi, Jean-François Guillemoles and Frédérique Donsanti

      Version of Record online: 8 MAY 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400044

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The study deals with the analysis of physico-chemical properties of the interface between CIGS and Mo in relation with adhesion properties. It is shown that a gallium rich environment at the interface is highly favorable for easy lift-off with the possible formation of an interfacial GaSe layer where the fracture takes place. Solar cells without efficiency losses after transfer are demonstrated.
