Metal-organic-foams (MOFs)-derived nanostructures have received broad attention for secondary batteries. However, common strategies are focusing on the preparation of dispersive materials, which need complicated steps and some additives for making electrodes of batteries. Here, we develop a novel free-standing Co9S8 polyhedron array derived from ZIF-67, which grows on a three-dimensional carbon cloth for lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery. The polar Co9S8 provides strong chemical binding to immobilize polysulfides, which enables efficiently suppressing of the shuttle effect. The free-standing [email protected] polyhedron array-based cathode exhibits ultrahigh capacity of 1079 mAh g-1 after cycling 100 times at 0.1C, and long cycling life of 500 cycles at 1C, recoverable rate-performance and good temperature tolerance. Furthermore, the adsorption energies towards polysulfides are investigated by using density functional theory (DFT) calculations, which display a strong binding with polysulfides.

Comparison of radius of anterior lens surface curvature measurements using the anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug imaging.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Mar;8(5):177

State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou 510060, China.

Background: To assess the radius of anterior lens surface curvature (RAL) measurements with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in comparison with Scheimpflug imaging.

Methods: This prospective, cross-sectional study was carried out at Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Guangzhou, China. We enrolled 59 eyes, including 30 eyes from 30 cataractous volunteers (59 to 87 years) and 29 eyes from 29 young participants (19 to 49 years). After mydriasis, the RAL was measured automatically by the built-in software in the AS-OCT (CASIA 2). The Scheimpflug images were measured with the build-in caliper tool of the Scheimpflug camera (Pentacam), and RAL were further calculated with the principle of best-fitted circle. Intraobserver and interobserver reproducibility of RAL measurement using Scheimpflug camera were evaluated with limit of agreement (LoA) and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC). Consistency between RAL measurement of Scheimpflug camera and AS-OCT were assessed with LoA, correlation analysis and linear regression.

Results: For all subjects, intraobserver (LoA: -0.25 to 0.23 mm, ICC: 0.996) and interobserver reproducibility (LoA: -0.85 to 0.92 mm, ICC: 0.947) of RAL were good using Scheimpflug imaging. Both AS-OCT and Scheimpflug imaging found that the age-related cataract participants had smaller RAL (P=0.010, P=0.001 respectively). LoA of RAL measurement between AS-OCT and Scheimpflug imaging was -3.83 to -0.79 mm, and the Pearson correlation efficient was 0.909 (P<0.001). The RAL values measured by AS-OCT were significantly greater than that by Scheimpflug camera with a mean difference of 2.31 mm for all participants (P<0.001). The RAL measurement could be converted using the equation: Y =1.155 × X + 1.060.

Conclusions: Both Scheimpflug camera system with internal caliper tool and the AS-OCT are fast and non-contact tools that could measure RAL successfully. The two measurement results are highly correlated and interchangeable through linear regression equation.
