    A liquid-crystalline novel self-assembly approach is used to develop a flexible material for charge capacitive applications. Highly porous hematite (α-Fe2O3) nanorods (HNR) prepared by an advanced spray-precipitation method enable the fabrication with ultralarge graphene oxide (GO) functionalized by PEDOT:PSS in an aqueous medium to develop a novel self-assembled 3D architecture with excellent energy-storage performance.

  2. Controllable and Predictable Viscoelastic Behavior of 3D Boron-Doped Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Sponges

    Boron-doped carbon nanotube (CNT) 3D sponges are compared with the undoped CNT sponges in terms of the plastic, elastic, viscoelastic, and dynamic viscoelastic mechanical properties. The boron-doped CNT sponge shows more predictable and stable mechanical properties than the undoped sponge. The superior properties of boron-doped CNT sponges are related to the “elbow-like” junctions on the doped carbon nanotubes.

    Theranostics: Polymer Capsules as a Theranostic Tool for a Universal In Vitro Screening Assay—The Case of Lysosomal Storage Diseases (Part. Part. Syst. Charact. 11/2015) (page 981)

    Polymer multilayer capsules are used by P. Rivera_Gil, W. J. Parak, and co-workers for concomitant pH-sensing and enzyme delivery to lysosomes in the framework of enzyme-replacement therapy in lysosomal-storage disorders, as described on page 991. The capsules act as local reporters of the pH by changing the fluorescence of the carried sensor from red (alkaline) to yellow (acidic) upon endocytosis and organelle acidification. In the acidic lysosomes, the capsules deliver the enzyme to substitute the defective one.
