Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a promising class of materials for many applications, due to their high chemical tunability and superb porosity. By growing MOFs as (thin-)films, additional properties and potential applications become available. Here, copper (II) 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate (Cu-BTC) metal-organic framework (MOF) thin-films are reported, which...
Sunday, DF., Chen, X., Albrecht, TR., Nowak, D., Delgadillo, PR., Dazai, T., Miyagi, K., Maehashi, T., Yamazaki, A., Nealey, PF., Kline, RJ.
The challenges of patterning next generation integrated circuits have driven the semiconductor industry to look outside of traditional lithographic methods in order to continue cost effective size scaling. The directed self-assembly (DSA) of block copolymers (BCPs) is a nanofabrication technique used to reduce the periodicity...
Bu, F., Shen, W., Zhang, X., Wang, Y., Belfiore, LA., Tang, J.
Polymer solar cells (PSCs) have shown excellent photovoltaic performance, however, extending the spectral response range to the ultraviolet (UV) region and enhancing the UV light stability remain two challenges to overcome in the development of PSCs. Lanthanide down-conversion materials can absorb the UV light and...

Tip enhanced IR spectra and imaging have been widely used in cutting-edge studies for the in-depth understanding of the composition, structure and function of interfaces at the nanoscale. However, molecular monolayer sensitivity has only been demonstrated on solid/gas interfaces. In aqueous environment, the reduced sensitivity...
Jahng, J., Potma, EO., Lee, ES.
When light illuminates the junction formed between a sharp metal tip and a sample, different mechanisms can contribute to the measured photoinduced force simultaneously. Of particular interest are the instantaneous force between the induced dipoles in the tip and in the sample, and the force...
Chen, Q., van der Slot, S., Kreisig, S., Tian, M., Peters, R., Loos, J.
The surface chemical composition of water-based coatings prepared from urethane–acrylic hybrids or blends is investigated using infrared photo-induced force microscopy. By monitoring the interaction between the optically driven molecular dipole and its mirror image in a metal-coated tip, detailed information of the chemical composition at...
Li, J., Yan, Z., Li, J., Wang, Z., Morrison, W., Xia, XH.
Attenuated total reflection surface-enhanced infrared absorption spectroscopy (ATR-SEIRAS) is a powerful technique that provides structural and functional information during dynamic reactions in aqueous solutions. One existing limitation is the sensitivity to extract the signals of trace-level analytes from the background water in situ and in...

There is an increasing urge to investigate facile solutions for monitoring biotoxins, which are a major concern in both the food safety and the anti-terrorism fields. Current techniques, such as immunochromatographic tests (ICT), enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and mass spectrometry, are still insufficient to satisfy...

Understanding of how the chemistry of asphalt binders (i.e., bitumens) affects their bulk properties is critical for development of structure-related mechanical models and performance-based specifications for asphalt binders and asphalt-related applications. However, establishing the chemical-mechanical relationships that govern asphalt binders’ properties remains a challenge due...

The organization of protein molecules into higher-order nanoscale architectures is ubiquitous in Nature and represents an important goal in synthetic biology. Furthermore, the stabilization of enzyme activity has many practical applications in biotechnology and medicine. Here we describe the symmetry-directed design of an extremely stable,...

Hyperbolic media have attracted much attention in the photonics community due to their ability to confine light to arbitrarily small volumes and their potential applications to super-resolution technologies. The two-dimensional counterparts of these media can be achieved with hyperbolic metasurfaces that support in-plane hyperbolic guided...
Sha, Y., Liu, W., Li, Y. et al.
Although it has been half a century since polyacrylonitrile (PAN)-based carbon fibers were first developed, the exact formation mechanism of skin-core structure of PAN-based carbon fibers, especially the stabilized PAN fibers, was still not well clarified from the viewpoint of the chemical structure. In order...

Multi-stacked graphene oxide (GO) sheets containing intricate networks of microcapillary water channels are attractive as filtration membranes displaying both ultrahigh water permeation and ion exclusion properties. However, their practical utilization as desalination membranes is hampered by multiple issues, which include scalability, swelling of interlayer space,...

The charge separation yield at a bulk heterojunction sets the upper efficiency limit of an organic solar cell. Ultrafast charge transfer processes in polymer/fullerene blends have been intensively studied but much less is known about these processes in all-polymer systems. Here, we show that interfacial...
