In situ synthesis of chemically bonded NaTi2(PO4)3/rGO 2-D nanocomposite for high-rate sodium-ion batteries

A NaTi2(PO4)3/rGO nanocomposite was successfully synthesized using a facile microwave-assisted solvothermal method. The strong anchoring of NaTi2(PO4)3 nanoparticles on rGO substrates via chemical bonding enhanced the electrical conductivity and rate capability. The specific discharge capacity was 128.6 mAh g-1 at 0.1 C-rate and 93.7 mAh g-1 even at 50 C-rate, displaying the best rate capability compared with the ever reported NaTi2(PO4)3-based anode materials for sodium-ion batteries.

According to a study involving more than 7,500 citizens that was conducted during elections in New Jersey in 2009 and Texas in 2010, untrained get-out-the-vote callers discerned which self-predicted voters would either vote or fail to vote by using subtle nonverbal cues; the callers used respondents' voice-related cues to discern their intent to vote, suggesting that untrained callers could enable judicious allocation of political campaign resources.

Recent progress in tracking the viability of transplanted stem cells in vivo

The viability of the transplanted stem cells is particularly crucial in determining the success of stem cell-based regenerative medicine. Therefore, the development of non-invasive imaging methods that can in situ monitor the viability of the transplanted stem cells is urgently needed. Now, researchers in Su’zhou summarize the recent progress in tracking the viability of the transplanted stem cells in vivo, including reporter-gene based methods, exogenous contrast label-based methods and multimodel imaging methods.

Precise synthesis of discrete and dispersible carbon-protected magnetic nanoparticles for efficient MRI imaging and photothermal therapy

We have developed a new synthesis of discrete, dispersible, uniform, carbon-protected magnetic nanoparticles, which possess excellent water-dispersibility, biocompatibility, a high T2 relaxivity coefficient (384 mM–1•s–1), and a high photothermal heating effect. They can be used as multifunctional core components suited for future extended investigation in early diagnosis, detection and therapy, catalysis, separation, and magnetism.

Multilayered electret films based triboelectric nanogenerator

This paper presented a novel electret film based TENG. The performances have been increased by 7 times as compared to those subjected to contact electrification. This work has proven that the injection of charges into electret films by corona charging is a simple, effective and cost-efficient approach to enhance the surface charge density and the output performances of TENG, which is quite beneficial to the applications of TENGs.
