- Mesoporous Germanium Anode Materials for Lithium-Ion Battery with Exceptional Cycling Stability in Wide Temperature Range
Sinho Choi, Yoon-Gyo Cho, Jieun Kim, Nam-Soon Choi, Hyun-Kon Song, Guoxiu Wang and Soojin Park
Version of Record online: 18 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/smll.201603045
Newly developed porous germanium (Ge) anode materials prepared by a metallothermic reduction reaction for high performance lithium-ion batteries in a wide temperature range are demonstrated. Mesoporous Ge anodes with high surface area exhibit high specific capacities and highly stable cycling performances at various temperatures. Furthermore, full cells with the Ge anode exhibit an excellent cyclability at low temperature.
- Scaffolding of Enzymes on Virus Nanoarrays: Effects of Confinement and Virus Organization on Biocatalysis
Anisha N. Patel, Agnès Anne, Arnaud Chovin, Christophe Demaille, Eric Grelet, Thierry Michon and Cécilia Taofifenua
Version of Record online: 18 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/smll.201603163
Glucose oxidase scaffolded virus nanoarrays with tunable catalytic properties are directly organized onto electrode supports using immunodecoration for assembly. Structural and catalytic characterization reveals the effect of enzyme confinement on kinetic activity as a function of virus organization. Enhanced catalysis for glucose oxidase is found for randomly oriented GOx-fd nanoarrays compared to aligned nanoarrays and reference nonscaffolded enzyme molecules.
- Cleanable Air Filter Transferring Moisture and Effectively Capturing PM2.5
Xinglei Zhao, Yuyao Li, Ting Hua, Pan Jiang, Xia Yin, Jianyong Yu and Bin Ding
Version of Record online: 17 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/smll.201603306
A cleanable air filter transferring moisture and effectively capturing PM2.5 is fabricated via electrospinning using superhydrophilic polyacrylonitrile fibers containing abundant hydroxyl and hydrophobic polyvinylidenene fluoride fibers. The resultant air filter with a hydrophobic to superhydrophilic gradient structure has the feature of a high PM2.5 purification efficiency, low air resistance, an important moisture-vapor transmission rate, and an easy-to-clean property.
- Design and Analysis of Localized DNA Hybridization Chain Reactions
Hieu Bui, Vincent Miao, Sudhanshu Garg, Reem Mokhtar, Tianqi Song and John Reif
Version of Record online: 16 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/smll.201602983
Localized DNA hybridization chain reactions have been experimentally demonstrated to have six times speed-up over nonlocalized DNA reactions. With the goal of increasing the reaction rates, a surface-bound method by tethering metastable DNA hairpins to a long DNA track has been shown to influence the reaction rate via thermal equilibrium gel data and real-time fluorescence kinetic studies.
