TADF polymer enables over 20% EQE in solution‐processed green fluorescent OLEDs

  •  15 February 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Solution-processed green hyperfluorescence has been demonstrated based on thermally activated delayed fluorescence polymer as the sensitizer for the traditional fluorescent dopant. In addition, a breakthrough to over 20% external quantum efficiency is achieved successfully due to the good solution processibility, suitable energy level alignment, and efficient upconversion, followed by a subsequent Förster energy transfer.

iSKIN: Integrated application of machine learning and Mondrian conformal prediction to detect skin sensitizers in cosmetic raw materials

  •  15 February 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Here, we propose a novel skin sensitizer detection platform iSKIN (http://www.iskin.work/). By jointly using graph-based autoencoder and Mondrian conformal prediction, the proposed iSKIN model is able to achieve a balance between improvement in model accuracy and application domain, thereby achieving state-of-the-art performance so far. The iSKIN model can contribute to the safety evaluation of cosmetic raw materials and provide a reference for the chemical structure design of the materials.

A drug delivery platform using engineered MUC1‐targeting exosomes enhances chemosensitivity and immunogenic cell death in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma

  •  15 February 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

This study develops a targeted drug delivery platform based on exosome-enriched chimeric receptors, enabling precise chemotherapy drug delivery. In treatments exemplified by pancreatic cancer, αMUC1-Exo delivers Gemcitabine, overcoming tumor drug resistance and enhancing chemotherapy sensitivity. The tumor cells treated with drugs delivered by engineered cells tend to undergo immunogenic death, inducing long-term antitumor memory formation.

Eco‐friendly materials for next‐generation vaccination: From concept to clinical reality

  •  31 January 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Vaccines are critical in the fight against infectious diseases; however, developing them is challenging. Plasma and plant-based techniques are emergent, which offer scalable, cost-effective pathogen deactivation without using harsh chemicals. These systems overtake traditional ones in tackling issues with universal health. We emphasize cutting-edge approaches for effectual and secure vaccines while examining their benefits and feasible impact on immunization line-ups.

Constructing mechanically robust, efficient self‐healing, high‐energy, and recyclable energetic composites by hybrid dynamic lock strategy

  •  31 January 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The integration of a hybrid dynamic lock presents the possibility of addressing the limitations associated with microdefects and nonrecyclability. The primary objective of this study is to investigate the development of energetic elastomers and composites that demonstrate remarkable toughness, self-healing properties, and elevated energy levels. The elucidation of self-healing mechanisms is achieved through a combination of experimental and theoretical investigations.
