    Bubbled RNA-Based Cargo for Boosting RNA Interference

    Hyejin Kim, Jaepil Jeong, Dajeong Kim, Gijung Kwak, Sun Hwa Kim and Jong Bum Lee

    Version of Record online: 27 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201600523

    Bubbled ribonucleic acid (RNA)-based cargo (BRC) for efficient siRNA generation is successfully synthesized by one-pot process. The presence of bubbles to avoid nonfunctional short dsRNAs allows BRCs to contain multiple Dicer-cleavage sites to release functional siRNAs in cells. Successful gene silencing by BRCs both in vitro and in vivo suggests this system has a potential for target-specific RNAi therapeutics with high efficiency.

    An Alternative Host Material for Long-Lifespan Blue Organic Light-Emitting Diodes Using Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence

    Soo-Ghang Ihn, Namheon Lee, Soon Ok Jeon, Myungsun Sim, Hosuk Kang, Yongsik Jung, Dal Ho Huh, Young Mok Son, Sae Youn Lee, Masaki Numata, Hiroshi Miyazaki, Rafael Gómez-Bombarelli, Jorge Aguilera-Iparraguirre, Timothy Hirzel, Alán Aspuru-Guzik, Sunghan Kim and Sangyoon Lee

    An alternative host material is introduced with the appropriateness of replacing the most popular host material, DPEPO, in developing blue thermally activated delayed fluorescent (TADF) emitters. It simultaneously provides much longer device lifespan and higher external quantum efficiency at a practical brightness due to its high material stability and electron-transport-type character well-fitted for hole-transport-type TADF emitters.

    Black Phosphorus Quantum Dots with Tunable Memory Properties and Multilevel Resistive Switching Characteristics

    Su-Ting Han, Liang Hu, Xiandi Wang, Ye Zhou, Yu-Jia Zeng, Shuangchen Ruan, Caofeng Pan and Zhengchun Peng

    Version of Record online: 16 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201600435

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Solution-processed black phosphorus quantum-dot-based resistive random access memory is demonstrated with tunable characteristics, multilevel data storage, and ultrahigh ON/OFF ratio. Effects of the black phosphorous quantum dots layer thickness and the compliance current setting on resistive switching behavior are systematically studied. Our devices can yield a series of SET voltages and current levels, hence having the potential for practical applications in the flexible electronics industry.

    Taking Electrons out of Bioelectronics: From Bioprotonic Transistors to Ion Channels

    Xenofon Strakosas, John Selberg, Zahra Hemmatian and Marco Rolandi

    Version of Record online: 14 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201600527

    Bioprotonic devices can monitor, and control H+ currents for biological applications. Pd/PdHx couple is used as a transducer of H+ currents into electronic currents and vice versa. The use of Pd/PdHx in bioelectronics has opened the doors to new type of applications and devices including enzyme logic, control of bioluminescence, and platforms for integration of ion channels toward intracellular communication.
