Nanoporous carbon particles with magnetic Co nanoparticles are synthesized by one-step carbonization of zeolitic imidazolate framework-67 (ZIF-67) crystals. The obtained nanoporous carbons show a high surface area and well-developed graphitized wall, thereby realizing fast molecular diffusion of methylene blue molecules with excellent adsorption performance. Also, the dispersed magnetic Co nanoparticles facilitate easy magnetic separation.

A new high-throughput screening (HTS) platform is reported based on the cytokinesis-block micronucleus (CBMN) assay, lab-on-chip cell sorting, and automated image analysis. This HTS-CBMN assay coupled with our lab-on-a-chip platform can be applied to cells from different tissue sources and organisms, offering unique insights into genotoxicity testing of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs).
- Ultra-Broadband Photodetector for the Visible to Terahertz Range by Self-Assembling Reduced Graphene Oxide-Silicon Nanowire Array Heterojunctions

Advantages of reduced graphene oxide (RGO) and Si nanowire (SiNW) array are integrated into a single photodetector by simple drop-casting of the suspension of graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets on top of the SiNW array followed by heat-treatment. The RGO-SiNW array heterojunction photodetector is photoresponsive to the visible, near-infrared, mid-infrared, and terahertz wave irradiations at room temperature.
- Anti-Biofouling Polymer-Decorated Lutetium-Based Nanoparticulate Contrast Agents for In Vivo High-Resolution Trimodal Imaging

Clinical noninvasive diagnostic imaging generally holds excellent capability in visualizing and understanding various functions in biologic systems. Using PEGylation hybrid lutetium oxide as a novel nanoparticulate contrast agent, high-resolution tri-modal imaging can be achieved both in virto and in vivo. Meanwhile, detailed long-term retention and toxicity studies indicate the excellent biocompatibility and overall safety of these well-prepared PEG-UCNPs.
- One-Pot Synthesis of Platinum Nanocubes on Reduced Graphene Oxide with Enhanced Electrocatalytic Activity
Bao Yu Xia, Hao Bin Wu, Ya Yan, Hai Bo Wang and Xin Wang
Article first published online: 7 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/smll.201302648
Pt nanocubes/rGO in one pot: Pt nanocubes/rGO hybrids are successfully synthesized via a facile one-pot approach. The resultant Pt nanocubes/rGO hybrid exhibits enhanced catalytic activity and excellent electrochemical stability in comparison with commercial Pt/CB electrocatalysts, which can be ascribed to the abundant Pt(100) surface and its uniform distribution on rGO.
