TREND: Imaging of Polymeric Nanoparticles: Hard Challenge for Soft Objects

The visualization of polymeric nanoparticles by means of electron microscopy methods is an important mainstay for the characterization. Simple drop casting is a commonly used preparation method but it meanly conserves the nanoparticle morphology. Alternatively, the nanoparticles can be embedded into a matrix consisting of trehalose or ionic liquid in order to achieve a better structure conservation.

TREND: Configuring Anion-Exchange Membranes for High Conductivity and Alkaline Stability by Using Cationic Polymers with Tailored Side Chains

TREND: Configuring Anion-Exchange Membranes for High Conductivity and Alkaline Stability by Using Cationic Polymers with Tailored Side Chains

Patric Jannasch,* Eva Annika Weiber

Polymeric anion-exchange membranes are crucial components in alkaline membrane fuel cells and other electrochemical energy systems. Recent results show that both OH conductivity and alkaline stability of these materials are significantly enhanced by introducing flexible and hydrolytically stable alkyl side chains in the macromolecular design. Here, the latest trends in this research area are briefly reviewed.

TALENT: Use of Shewanella oneidensis for Energy Conversion in Microbial Fuel Cells

A. Belen Jorge,* Rachael Hazael

Exoelectrogens are able to transfer electrons outside the cell to oxidize chemicals anareoebically through extracellular electron transfer mechanisms. This allows them to function in microbial fuel cells. However, there are still limitations and open questions about electron transfer mechanisms and biofilm-electrode interactions before this technology can be fully implemented in the real world.

TALENT: Polymeric Nanohybrids as a New Class of Therapeutic Biotransporters

Jonathan Whitlow, Settimio Pacelli, Arghya Paul*

Polymeric nanohybrids offer a useful platform to deliver drugs and genes in a selective and efficient manner. A variety of nanomaterials can be combined together with biomolecules in order to generate the next generation of biotransporters. This Talent article highlights the diverse innovative solutions in this direction with particular emphasis on the development of new biotransporters for drugs and gene delivery.
