J Phys Chem B 2021 Sep 15. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Department of Physics, Politecnico di Milano, 20133 Milan, Italy.

Photothermal perturbation of the cell membrane is typically achieved using transducers that convert light into thermal energy, eventually heating the cell membrane. In turn, this leads to the modulation of the membrane electrical capacitance that is assigned to a geometrical modification of the membrane structure. However, the nature of such a change is not understood. Read More

Design of Persistent and Stable Porous Radical Polymers by Electronical Isolation Strategy.

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2021 Sep 15. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

State Key Laboratory of Luminescent Materials and Devices, South China University of Technology, Institute of Polymer Optoelectronic Materials and Devices, No. 381 Wushan, Tianhe District, 510640, Guangzhou, CHINA.

Conjugated organic radical polymers with stable radical features are difficult to design because the π conjugation in the polymer backbones makes the radicals readily delocalize and tend to undergo covalent bonding processes. In this work, we report an electronical isolation strategy to design stable porous radical polymers by homocoupling reaction from a meta-position active monomer. The meta linkage ensures less conjugation in the polymer skeletons, localizes the resonant radicals, and prevent them from recombination. Read More

A polydopamine-gated biodegradable cascade nanoreactor for pH-triggered and photothermal-enhanced tumor-specific nanocatalytic therapy.

Nanoscale 2021 Sep 15. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Southeast University, Nanjing 211189, China.

Despite the great potential of cascade catalytic reactions in tumor treatment, uncontrolled catalytic activities lead to inevitable off-target toxicity to normal tissues, which greatly hampers their clinical conversion. Herein, an intelligent cascade nanoreactor ([email protected], hMAP) was constructed by depositing glucose oxidase (GOx)-mimicking ultrasmall gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) into honeycomb-shaped manganese oxide (hMnO) nanostructures and then coating them with polydopamine (PDA) to achieve pH-responsive and photothermal-enhanced nanocatalytic therapy. Upon exposure to the mild acidic tumor microenvironment (TME), the PDA gatekeeper would collapse, and the inner hMnO could simultaneously deplete glutathione (GSH) and generate Mn, while a considerable amount of HO produced from the oxidation of glucose by GOx-mimicking Au NPs could accelerate the Mn-mediated Fenton-like reaction, yielding sufficient highly toxic ˙OH.

Black phosphorus-based photothermal therapy with aCD47-mediated immune checkpoint blockade for enhanced cancer immunotherapy.

Light Sci Appl 2020 Sep 15;9(1):161. Epub 2020 Sep 15.

Department of Chemistry, Institute for Lasers, Photonics, and Biophotonics, University at Buffalo, StateUniversity of New York, Buffalo, NY, USA.

Here, we describe a combination strategy of black phosphorus (BP)-based photothermal therapy together with anti-CD47 antibody (aCD47)-based immunotherapy to synergistically enhance cancer treatment. Tumour resistance to immune checkpoint blockades in most cancers due to immune escape from host surveillance, along with the initiation of metastasis through immunosuppressive cells in the tumour microenvironment, remains a significant challenge for cancer immunotherapy. aCD47, an agent for CD47/SIRPα axis blockade, induces modest phagocytic activity and a low response rate for monotherapy, resulting in failures in clinical trials.

Institut de Chimie Physique, UMR 8000 CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, 91405 Orsay, France.

Polypyrrole (PPy) is a conductive polymer and widely applied in different applications owing to its broadband absorption in the UV-visible, near-infrared (NIR), and short-wave-infrared (SWIR) spectrum, excellent conductivity, and strong photothermal effect. In this work, we explored for the first time the photothermal effect of PPy nanoparticles (PPy-NPs) in a photothermal-induced detector structure and developed a new type of air-stable hybrid PPy-NPs/Pt photodetector (PD) with NIR/SWIR sensitivity. By combining PPy-NPs with a platinum (Pt)-resistive pattern, we fabricated PPy-NPs/Pt PDs that are sensitive to illumination in the wavelength range from 800 to 2000 nm. Read More

Multifunctional TiCT MXene/Low-Density Polyethylene Soft Robots with Programmable Configuration for Amphibious Motions.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Beijing Key Laboratory of Advanced Functional Polymer Composites, Beijing University of Chemical Technology, Beijing 100029, China.

To diversify the motion modes of multifunctional soft robots capable of shape programming, we fabricate a biomimetic and programmable TiCT MXene/low-density polyethylene (LDPE) bilayer actuator by spraying an aqueous dispersion of MXenes onto a plasma-activated LDPE film, followed by optimal thermal regulations. Because of the eminent light absorption and photothermal/electrothermal features of MXenes and the extremely mismatched thermal expansion coefficients between the two layers, the MXene/LDPE actuator can be sensitively driven by many stimuli of near-infrared light, electricity, and heat. The initial configuration of the bilayer actuator can be programmed by tuning the thermal regulation temperature, thereby assembling multiple actuation units to achieve biomimetic functions, such as artificial iris, mechanical arms, and flying birds.
