Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have received considerable attention as novel sorbents for sample preparation due to their fascinating structures and functionalities such as large surface area, good thermal stability, and uniform structured nanoscale cavities. Here, we report the application of a thermal and solvent stable MOF MIL-88B with nanosized(More)
Combination of natural components with anticancer drugs is a new strategy for cancer chemotherapy to increase antitumour responses. In this study, we investigated the sensitisation effects of nine flavonoids from Scutellaria barbata to cisplatin (CDDP) on human ovarian cancer cells. The combinations of three flavonoids with CDDP showed the synergistic(More)
The development of multimodal nanoprobes that combined properties of near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) within a single probe is very important for medical diagnosis. The NIR-emitting persistent luminescent nanoparticles (PLNPs) are ideal for optical imaging owing to no need for in situ excitation, the absence of(More)
Rational design and fabrication of multimodal imaging nanoprobes are of great significance for in vivo imaging. Here we report the fabrication of a multishell structured NaYF4:Yb/Tm@NaLuF4@NaYF4@NaGdF4 nanoprobe via a seed-mediated epitaxial growth strategy for upconversion luminescence (UCL), X-ray computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance (MR)(More)
The design and fabrication of multimodal imaging nanoparticles is of great importance in medical diagnosis. Here we report the fabrication of core-shell structured Zn2.94Ga1.96Ge2O10:Cr(3+),Pr(3+)@TaOx@SiO2 nanoparticles for persistent luminescence and X-ray computed tomography (CT) imaging. Persistent luminescent nanoparticles(More)
Reliable long-term in vivo tracking of stem cells is of great importance in stem cell-based therapy and research. Fluorescence imaging with in situ excitation has significant autofluorescence background, which results in poor signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Here we report TAT penetrating peptide-bioconjugated long persistent luminescence nanoparticles(More)
A simple and facile room-temperature solution-phase synthesis was developed to fabricate a spherical covalent organic framework with large surface area, good solvent stability and high thermostability for high-resolution chromatographic separation of diverse important industrial analytes including alkanes, cyclohexane and benzene, α-pinene and β-pinene, and(More)
1H-benzotriazole (BTri) and 5-tolyltriazole (5-TTri) are emerging pollutants; the development of novel materials for their efficient adsorption and removal is thus of great significance in environmental sciences. Here, we report the application of zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) as a novel adsorbent for fast removal of BTri and 5-TTri in aqueous(More)
High crystallinity of covalent organic frameworks (COFs) with dual fluorescence emissions has not been reported so far. Here, we show the rational design and preparation of high-crystallinity COF TzDa via the synergetic interaction of docking sites and hydrogen bonds: 4,4',4″-(1,3,5-Triazine-2,4,6-triyl)trianiline (Tz) with the docking site and(More)
