Reevaluating the effects of reorganization energy on electron transfer rate for quantum dot-molecular acceptor complexes in different solvents.

Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc 2019 Apr 11;218:237-242. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Institute of Atomic and Molecular Physics, Jilin University, Changchun 130012, China. Electronic address:

The electron transfer (ET) rate in quantum dot (QD)-molecular acceptor systems is dependent upon system reorganization energy (RE, λ), which comprises contributions from solvent (λ) and reactants (λ). However, to date, the effect of λ on ET rate has been largely ignored. Herein, the ET from CdSe/ZnS QDs to 1-chloroanthraquinone (1-CAQ) in different solvents was investigated using ultrafast transient absorption spectroscopy as a means to evaluate the effect of λ on ET rate.

Cascading Interfaces Enable N-Si Photoanode for Efficient and Stable Solar Water Oxidation.

J Phys Chem Lett 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

The interfaces with multi-functions for the promoted solid/solid interfacial charge transfer dynamics and the accelerated solid/electrolyte interfacial water redox reaction kinetics are determinative to the photoelectrodes achieving high performances for photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting. In this work, the well-designed cascading interfaces are introduced in the n-Si photoanode, which is effectively protected by an atomic layer deposited CoOx thin layer for stabilizing the n-Si photoanode and then coated with an earth-abundant NiCuOx layer for catalyzing water oxidation reaction. Furthermore, the formed n-Si/CoOx/NiCuOx triple-junction could generate a large band bending to provide a considerable photovoltage for promoting the photoinduced charge transfer and separation processes at the n-Si/CoOx/NiCuOx cascading interfaces.

A Framework for Conducting and Analyzing Crystal Simulations of Nucleic Acids to Aid in Modern Force Field Evaluation.

J Phys Chem B 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Crystal simulations provide useful tools, along with solution simulations, to test nucleic acid force fields, but should be interpreted with care owing to the difficulty of establishing the environmental conditions needed to reproduce experimental crystal packing. These challenges underscore the need to construct proper protocols for carrying out crystal simulations and analyzing results to identify the origin of deviations from crystallographic data. Toward this end, we introduce a novel framework for B-factor decomposition into additive intramolecular, rotational, and translational atomic fluctuation components, and partitioning of each of these components into individual asymmetric unit and lattice contributions.

Teleological Essentialism.

Cogn Sci 2019 Apr;43(4):e12725

Department of Philosophy, University of Arizona.

Placeholder essentialism is the view that there is a causal essence that holds category members together, though we may not know what the essence is. Sometimes the placeholder can be filled in by scientific essences, such as when we acquire scientific knowledge that the atomic weight of gold is 79. We challenge the view that placeholders are elaborated by scientific essences. Read More

Electron beam broadening in electron-transparent samples at low electron energies.

J Microsc 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology South Campus, Laboratory for Electron Microscopy (LEM), Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) at low primary electron energies has received increasing attention in recent years because knock-on damage can be avoided and high contrast for weakly scattering materials is obtained. However, the broadening of the electron beam in the sample is pronounced at low electron energies, which degrades resolution and limits the maximum specimen thickness. In this work, we have studied electron beam broadening in materials with atomic numbers Z between 10 and 32 (MgO, Si, SrTiO , Ge) and thicknesses up to 900 nm. Read More

One Precursor but Two Types of Graphene Nanoribbons: On-Surface Transformations of 10,10'-Dichloro-9,9'-bianthryl on Ag(111).

J Phys Chem C Nanomater Interfaces 2019 Apr 25;123(14):8892-8901. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science, Utrecht University, PO Box 80000, 3508 TA Utrecht, The Netherlands.

On-surface synthesis has emerged in the last decade as a method to create graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) with atomic precision. The underlying premise of this bottom-up strategy is that precursor molecules undergo a well-defined sequence of inter- and intramolecular reactions, leading to the formation of a single product. As such, the structure of the GNR is encoded in the precursors. Read More

Cancer cells induce immune escape via glycocalyx changes controlled by the telomeric protein TRF2.

EMBO J 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Université Côte d'Azur, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) UMR7284, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM) U1081, Institute for Research on Cancer and Aging, Nice (IRCAN), Nice, France

Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are immature myeloid cells with strong immunosuppressive activity that promote tumor growth. In this study, we describe a mechanism by which cancer cells control MDSCs in human cancers by upregulating TRF2, a protein required for telomere stability. Specifically, we showed that the TRF2 upregulation in cancer cells has extratelomeric roles in activating the expression of a network of genes involved in the biosynthesis of heparan sulfate proteoglycan, leading to profound changes in glycocalyx length and stiffness, as revealed by atomic force microscopy.

Food Chem 2019 Aug 27;290:295-307. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Isotope Bioscience Laboratory - ISOFYS, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering, Ghent University, Coupure Links 653, 9000 Gent, Belgium.

To test the potential of different analytical tools to determine the geographical origin of Ethiopian coffee, 103 green arabica coffee samples from four coffee regions in Ethiopia were subjected to multi-elements and δC, δN and δO determinations. Multi-elements were determined by using inductively coupled plasma (ICP)- and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF)-based techniques, and δC, δN and δO were determined by using elemental analyzer-isotope ratio mass spectrometry. Using linear discriminant analysis, XRF-based multi-elements with and without δC appeared to be most effective in discriminating the geographical origin of coffee, giving higher classification accuracy (89 and 86%, respectively) than ICP-based multi-elements with and without stable isotopes (80%, each).

School of Physics and Electronic Science, Guizhou Education University, Guiyang 550018, China.

The outstanding diffusivity and permeability of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO) are extremely beneficial for grafting reaction. In this work, aramid fibers (AF) are modified in scCO by glycidyl-polyhedral oliomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) with 2-ethyl-4-methylimidazole (2E4MZ) on the basis of cleaning with acetone. The surface morphology and chemical structure of the modified AF were measured and characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Scanning electron microscope (SEM), Thermogravimetric (TG), and Atomic force microscope (AFM).

ALPhANOV, Technological Centre for Optics and Lasers, Optic Institute of Aquitaine, rue F. Mitterrand, 33400 Talence, France.

Laser-induced textures have been proven to be excellent solutions for modifying wetting, friction, biocompatibility, and optical properties of solids. The possibility to generate 2D-submicron morphologies by laser processing has been demonstrated recently. Employing double-pulse irradiation, it is possible to control the induced structures and to fabricate novel and more complex 2D-textures. Read More

Quantitative atomic force microscopy provides new insight into matrix vesicle mineralization.

Arch Biochem Biophys 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Nanoscience & Nanotechnology & Innovative Instrumentation (NAST) Centre, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy; Department of Experimental Medicine, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy; Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, La Jolla, CA, 92037, USA. Electronic address:

Matrix vesicles (MVs) are a class of extracellular vesicles that initiate mineralization in cartilage, bone, and other vertebrate tissues by accumulating calcium ions (Ca) and inorganic phosphate (P) within their lumen and forming a nucleation core (NC). After further sequestration of Ca and P, the NC transforms into crystalline complexes. Direct evidence of the existence of the NC and its maturation have been provided solely by analyses of dried samples. Read More

Golden Palladium Zinc Ordered Intermetallics as Oxygen Reduction Electrocatalysts.

ACS Nano 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Exploring Pt-free electrocatalysts with high activity and long durability for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) has been long pursued by the renewable energy material community. In this work, we have designed an ordered intermetallics PdZn/C (O-PdZn) with a several atomic-layer Pd shell, which achieved a three-fold enhancement in ORR mass activities (MA) in alkaline media, relative to Pd/C and Pt/C. Further Au incorporation in O-PdZn/C (Au-O-PdZn/C) yielded a catalyst with superior durability with less than 10% loss in MA after 30,000 potential cycles. Read More

Coexistence of Elastic Modulations in the Charge Density Wave State of 2H-NbSe2.

Nano Lett 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Bulk and single-layer NbSe2 exhibit identical charge density wave order (CDW) with a quasi-commensurate 3x3 superlattice periodicity. Here we combine scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) imaging at T = 1 K of 2H-NbSe2 with first-principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations to investigate the structural atomic rearrangement of this CDW phase. Our calculations reveal that six different atomic structures are compatible with the 3×3 CDW distortion, although all of them lie on a very narrow energy range of at most 3 meV per formula unit, suggesting the coexistence of such structures.

Interfacial Coordinational Coupled Defect Engineering Boosted Portable Zinc-Air Battery with Broad Work Temperature.

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Lanzhou University, 222 South Tianshui Rd, Lanzhou, CHINA.

Atomic-thick interfacial dominated bifunctional catalyst NiO/CoO transition interfacial nanowires (TINWs) with abundant coordinational defective sites display high electroactivities and durabilities in the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). Density functional theory (DFT) calculations unravel that the excellent OER/ORR performance arises from the electron-rich interfacial region coupled with coordinational defective sites, thus endows the fast-redox rate with lower activation barrier for fast electron transfer. When assembled as air-electrode, NiO/CoO TINWs delivered the high specific capacity of 842. Read More

Evidence of Spin Frustration in a Vanadium Diselenide Monolayer Magnet.

Adv Mater 2019 Apr 18:e1901185. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Centre for Advanced 2D Materials (CA2DM) and Graphene Research Centre (GRC), National University of Singapore, 6 Science Drive 2, Singapore, 117546, Singapore.

Monolayer VSe , featuring both charge density wave and magnetism phenomena, represents a unique van der Waals magnet in the family of metallic 2D transition-metal dichalcogenides (2D-TMDs). Herein, by means of in situ microscopy and spectroscopic techniques, including scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy, synchrotron X-ray and angle-resolved photoemission, and X-ray absorption, direct spectroscopic signatures are established, that identify the metallic 1T-phase and vanadium 3d electronic configuration in monolayer VSe grown on graphite by molecular-beam epitaxy. Element-specific X-ray magnetic circular dichroism, complemented with magnetic susceptibility measurements, further reveals monolayer VSe as a frustrated magnet, with its spins exhibiting subtle correlations, albeit in the absence of a long-range magnetic order down to 2 K and up to a 7 T magnetic field.

Fabrication of polydimethylsiloxane nanofluidic chips under AFM tip-based nanomilling process.

Nanoscale Res Lett 2019 Apr 17;14(1):136. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Center for Precision Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, 150001, Heilongjiang, People's Republic of China.

In current research realm, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-based nanofluidic devices are widely used in medical, chemical, and biological applications. In the present paper, a novel nanomilling technique (consisting of an AFM system and a piezoelectric actuator) was proposed to fabricate nanochannels (with controllable sizes) on PDMS chips, and nanochannel size was controlled by the driving voltage and frequency inputted to the piezoelectric actuator. Moreover, microchannel and nanochannel molds were respectively fabricated by UV lithography and AFM tip-based nanomilling, and finally, PDMS slabs with micro/nanochannels were obtained by transfer process.

A reactive force field molecular dynamics study of molecular nitrogen and water mixtures under high temperature and high pressure.

J Mol Model 2019 Apr 17;25(5):120. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Institute of Atomic and Molecular Physics, Sichuan University, Chengdu, 610065, China.

Establishment of an equation of state (EOS) for detonation products is challenging through molecular modeling approaches. Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with the reactive force fields (ReaxFF) were carried out in this work for molecular N and HO and their mixtures, which are key components of detonation products, with high density and under high temperature, and compared with the experiment-based Becker-Kistiakowsky-Wilson (BKW) and the Lennard-Jones potential-based Tsien-Zhao (TZ) equations. Phase separations were noted for the mixtures, enhanced for denser systems under low temperature, and detracted for sparse systems under high temperature. Read More

Radical theory of hydride atomization confirmed after four decades - determination of H radicals in a quartz hydride atomizer by two-photon absorption laser-induced fluorescence.

Chem Sci 2019 Mar 14;10(12):3643-3648. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Institute of Analytical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences , Veveří 97 , 60200 Brno , Czech Republic . Email:

In an externally heated quartz atomizer, the most often used hydride atomizer for atomic absorption spectrometry, two-photon absorption laser-induced fluorescence (TALIF) was employed (i) to bring after four decades for the first time conclusive proof of the existence of H radical population sufficient to atomize hydrides thus confirming unambiguously the radical theory of hydride atomization and (ii) to determine the distribution of H radicals in the atomizer. Under typical operating conditions, H radicals are concentrated in an approximately 3 mm long cloud in the center of the optical arm and their peak concentration exceeds 10 m, four orders of magnitude above the typical analytical concentration of hydride. The lowest detectable H radical concentration is in the order of 10 m. Read More
