    A microfluidic device embedded with porous silicon nanowire (pSiNW) forest is developed for label-free size-based point-of-care virus capture in a continuous curved flow design. By dissolving pSiNW in phosphate-buffered saline, captured viruses can be released and cultured. It has great potentials for unknown virus discovery, virus isolation and culture, functional studies of virus pathogenicity, transmission, drug screening, and vaccine development.

  2. Bionanofiber Assisted Decoration of Few-Layered MoSe2 Nanosheets on 3D Conductive Networks for Efficient Hydrogen Evolution

    A droplet-based real-time surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sensor is developed based on superhydrophobic SERS-active Ag dendritic substrate for high-throughput biological and chemical molecular detection. The enhancement factor of the droplet-based real-time SERS sensor reaches 6.3 × 105, and droplets containing various molecules can be successively manipulated and clearly detected on the SERS sensor without cleaning process.

  4. Electrostatic Assembly Guided Synthesis of Highly Luminescent Carbon-Nanodots@BaSO4 Hybrid Phosphors with Improved Stability

    Ding Zhou, Yuechen Zhai, Songnan Qu, Di Li, Pengtao Jing, Wenyu Ji, Dezhen Shen and Andrey L. Rogach

    Polymeric nanoparticlesare developed by supramolecular self-assembly for the delivery of anticancer drug in vitro and in vivo. The nanoparticles having both redox and acid responsive properties are capable of inducing anticancer effect on HeLa cells. In vivo application of the nanoparticles on liver tumor model in transgenic zebrafish shows an improved viability of zebrafish with sustainable reduction of liver tumor.
