    Non-noble metal-based carbon composites for electrochemical hydrogen production are summarized and the relationships between electrocatalyst structure-activity-pH are systematically discussed.

  2. Waterproof, Ultrahigh Areal-Capacitance, Wearable Supercapacitor Fabrics

    A multiwall carbon nanotube/reduced graphene oxide composite fabric electrode with an ultrahigh areal capacitance of 6.2 F cm−2 is obtained by alternating filtration on Ni-coated cotton fabric. With simple textile sewing and sealing techniques, these high-performance electrodes are assembled into all-solid-state fabric-type supercapacitor devices, which possess record-breaking initial capacitance (2.7 F cm−2) and excellent retention, remarkable flexibility, and are waterproof.

  3. Rational Design of Cancer Nanomedicine: Nanoproperty Integration and Synchronization

    Rational design of next-generation cancer nanomedicines should aim to enhance their therapeutic efficacies. The typical cancer-drug delivery involves a five-step CAPIR cascade and that high efficiency at every step is critical to guarantee high overall therapeutic efficiency. Stability, surface and size nanoproperty transitions (3S transitions for short) are proposed and the reported strategies to realize these transitions are comprehensively summarized.

  4. Photoinduced Plasticity in Cross-Linked Liquid Crystalline Networks

    Matthew K. McBride, Matthew Hendrikx, Danqing Liu, Brady T. Worrell, Dirk J. Broer and Christopher N. Bowman

    Reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer is implemented in liquid crystalline networks. The alignment of the liquid crystals is spatially and temporally controlled via stress relaxation at various temperatures. Thermally reversible optical images and surface patterns, attributed to the disruption and stabilization of orientation during rearrangement, are written into aligned networks, confined in cells and on surfaces.

  5. Graphene-Assisted Antioxidation of Tungsten Disulfide Monolayers: Substrate and Electric-Field Effect

    Kyungnam Kang, Kyle Godin, Young Duck Kim, Shichen Fu, Wujoon Cha, James Hone and Eui-Hyeok Yang

    Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201603898

    Oxidation-resistant tungsten disulfide (WS2) monolayers on graphene are grown, and the mechanisms of oxidation and antioxidation of WS2 on graphene/SiO2 and on graphene suspended in air are elucidated. Epitaxially grown WS2 on suspended graphene does not show any sign of oxidation, attributed to the screening effect of the surface electric field caused by the substrate.
