Accumulating evidence indicates natural killer (NK) cells play crucial roles in successful pregnancy. To investigate whether the killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) gene polymorphism and the corresponding specific HLA ligands in parent couples possessing a susceptibility to unexplained recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA), we searched 73 pairs of(More)
Carrier doping of MoS2 nanoflakes was achieved by functional self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) with different dipole moments. The effect of SAMs on the charge transfer between the substrates and MoS2 nanoflakes was studied by Raman spectroscopy, field-effect transistor (FET) measurements, and Kelvin probe microscope (KFM). Raman data and FET results verified(More)
Functional nanomaterials with three-dimensional hierarchical structures are of high interest for many practical applications including lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In this work, self-organized sheaf-like Fe3O4/C microrods constructed by porous nanowires have been synthesized by a facile solvothermal method combined with a subsequent annealing treatment.(More)
Hierarchical Fe3 O4 hollow spheres constructed by nanosheets are obtained from solvothermally synthesized Fe-glycerate hollow spheres. With the unique structural features, these hierarchical Fe3 O4 hollow spheres exhibit excellent electrochemical lithium-storage performance.
Theranostic agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided photothermal therapy have attracted intensive interest in cancer diagnosis and treatment. However, the development of biocompatible theranostic agents with high photothermal conversion efficiency and good MRI contrast effect remains a challenge. Herein, PEGylated Mn2+-chelated polydopamine(More)
Production of hydrogen by electrochemical water splitting has been hindered by the high cost of precious metal catalysts, such as Pt, for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER).

Monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) and their van der Waals heterostructures have been experimentally and theoretically demonstrated as potential candidates for photovoltaic and optoelectronic devices due to the suitable bandgap and excellent light absorption. In this work, we report the observation of photodiode behavior in (both n- and p-(More)
Graphene-like two-dimensional layered materials have attracted quite a lot of interest because of their sizable band gaps and potential applications. In this work, monodisperse tin disulfide (SnS2) nanosheets were successfully prepared by a simple solvothermal procedure in the presence of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). Large PVP molecules absorbing on (001)(More)
Low-cost and efficient electrocatalysts for overall water splitting are in high demand for a wide range of applications across renewable and clean energy. Here, we report a simple one-step synthesis of three-dimensional (3D) carbon-coated Ni8P3 nanosheet array as bifunctional catalyst for both hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) and oxygen evolution(More)
