Codoped Ln-metal-organic frameworks EuxTb1-xL are synthesized based on the isostructural Ln-metal-organic frameworks using lanthanide ion emitters. With careful adjustment of the relative concentration of the lanthanide ions and the excitation wavelength, the emission trajectory can be modulated, allowing white emission. Furthermore, Eu0.2Tb0.8L allows for the design of a thermometer operating over a wide range, from 40 to 300 K.
- The Effect of Protein Fusions on the Production and Mechanical Properties of Protein-Based Materials
Shang-Pu Tsai, David W. Howell, Zhao Huang, Hao-Ching Hsiao, Yang Lu, Kathleen S. Matthews, Jun Lou and Sarah E. Bondos

A wide range of proteins can be incorporated into protein-based materials via gene fusion, to produce a single polypeptide capable of self-assembly and the function of interest. 24 proteins are fused to Ultrabithorax, a protein which self-assembles in vitro. Whereas the appended proteins determine the solubility and purification yield of the corresponding fusion protein, all fusion proteins self-assemble equally well.
- Conjugated Polymer Nanoparticles as Nano Floating Gate Electrets for High Performance Nonvolatile Organic Transistor Memory Devices
Chien-Chung Shih, Yu-Cheng Chiu, Wen-Ya Lee, Jung-Yao Chen and Wen-Chang Chen
Article first published online: 26 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201404329
A molecular nano-floating gate approach using conjugated polymer nanoparticles is developed for achieving high performance transistor memory devices. The transistor memory device using discrete polyfluorene and poly(fluorene-alt-benzo[2,1,3]thiadiazole nanoparticles as the floating gates can effectively trap the electrons and lead to a large memory window, long retention time, and a high ON/OFF ratio of >104.
- Mesoporous Colloidal Superparticles of Platinum-Group Nanocrystals with Surfactant-Free Surfaces and Enhanced Heterogeneous Catalysis
Yongxing Hu, Yuzi Liu and Yugang Sun
Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201403664
Colloidal superparticles consisting of platinum nanocrystals embedded in silver chloride matrix are synthesized through a self-limited coprecipitation on sacrificial substrates of colloidal silver particles. Selective dissolution of silver chloride leads to the formation of porous superparticles of platinum with ligand-free surfaces that are beneficial for solution-phase heterogeneous catalysis.
