    Particle hydrogels can be injected into the stroke cavity and anneal in situ to form a microporous scaffold in a minimally invasive procedure. It is shown that this particle hydrogel scaffold decreases gliosis, while increasing the peri-infarct vasculature and promoting neural progenitor cell infiltration into the hydrogel.

    By sequential growth of alloy-free 2D monolayer WSe2-MoS2 lateral p-n heterojunction, photovoltaic devices show extraordinary power conversion efficiencies of 2.56%. The large surface active area of the devices enables the full exposure of the depletion region, leading to excellent omnidirectional light harvesting characteristic. Modeling studies demonstrate the devices comply with typical principles. The appropriate electrode-spacing design leads to environment-independent properties.

    Radiation therapy has been widely used for clinical cancer treatment, while its therapeutic outcomes are limited due to different mechanisms. Recently, there have been great interests in exploring nanomedicine approaches to enhance radiation responses of tumors. Herein, various strategies of applying nanotechnology in radio-oncology and the latest development of ‘advanced materials' for enhanced cancer radiation therapy are summarized.

  5. Prussian Blue Nanocubes with an Open Framework Structure Coated with PEDOT as High-Capacity Cathodes for Lithium–Sulfur Batteries

    The synthesis of Na2Fe[Fe(CN)6] as cathode hosts for lithium–sulfur (Li–S) battery is reported. This open framework can store sulfur and acts as a polysulfide diffusion inhibitor based on the Lewis acid–base bonding effect for high-performance Li–S batteries. Li–S batteries based on this concept exhibit high specific capacity, good cycling stability, and superior rate capability.
