    Applications of graphite intercalation compounds as anodes in alkali ion batteries and as cathodes in aluminium-ion batteries are briefly reviewed in this Progress Report. We also reach conclusions on the drawbacks, major progress, emerging challenges, and some perspectives on the development of graphite intercalation compounds for metal (Li, Na, K, Al) ion batteries.

    Novel Dimethylmethylene-Bridged Triphenylamine-PDI Acceptor for Bulk-Heterojunction Organic Solar Cells

    Yu Xiong, Bo Wu, Xiaoyan Zheng, Zheng Zhao, Ping Deng, Ming Lin, Benzhong Tang and Beng S. Ong

    Version of Record online: 22 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700110

    A novel, star-shaped electron acceptor, DMTPA-PDI3, derived from planar dimethylmethylene-bridged triphenylamine core with three acetylene-linked perylene diimides (PDIs) is developed for nonfullerene organic solar cells (OSCs). Active layers for OSCs comprising DMTPA-PDI3 and PBT7-Th manifest suppressed intermolecular aggregation leading to formation of uniform nanophase network. OSC devices using DMTPA-PDI3 acceptor have afforded respectably high power-conversion efficiency of about 5%.

    Smart Fluid Systems: The Advent of Autonomous Liquid Robotics

    A. Chiolerio and Marco B. Quadrelli

    Version of Record online: 22 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700036

    An assessment of existing capabilities that can be leveraged to pursue the topic of “Smart Fluid Systems” or “Liquid Engineered Systems” is provided in this Progress Report. Organic, inorganic or hybrid liquid devices, kept in a fixed volume and protected from a harsh planetary environment, in a biologically inspired vision may be able of changing shape according to a specific command, and provide a solution for exploration in extreme or otherwise challenging environments.

    Biomimetically Engineered Demi-Bacteria Potentiate Vaccination against Cancer

    Dezhi Ni, Shuang Qing, Hui Ding, Hua Yue, Di Yu, Shuang Wang, Nana Luo, Zhiguo Su, Wei Wei and Guanghui Ma

    Version of Record online: 15 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700083

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A demi-bacteria (DB)-based vaccine platform is developed through hydrothermal engineering of bacillus. Such constructed biomimetic vaccine with multiple pathogen-like features greatly enhances antigen uptake and cross-presentation, resulting in stronger immune activation. Indeed, DB-based biomimetic vaccine induces synergistic cellular and humoral immune responses, achieving potent therapeutic and preventive effects against cancer.
