Covalently bonded single-molecule junctions with stable and reversible photoswitched conductivity
A fully reversible, two-mode, single-molecule electrical switch with unprecedented levels of accuracy, stability, consistency, and reproducibility is demonstrated. Expand
Discrimination of oligonucleotides of different lengths with a wild-type aerolysin nanopore.
It is shown that a wild-type aerolysin nanopore can resolve individual short oligonucleotides that are 2 to 10 bases long and can monitor the stepwise cleavage of oligon nucleotides by exonuclease I. Expand
Influence of the donor size in D-π-A organic dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells.
We report two new molecularly engineered push-pull dyes, i.e., YA421 and YA422, based on substituted quinoxaline as a π-conjugating linker and bulky-indoline moiety as donor and compared withExpand
In vivo and in situ tracking cancer chemotherapy by highly photostable NIR fluorescent theranostic prodrug.
The tumor-targeting ability and the specific drug release in tumors make DCM-S-CPT as a promising prodrug, providing significant advances toward deeper understanding and exploration of theranostic drug-delivery systems. Expand
New Diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) Dyes for Efficient Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
Two novel metal-free dyes (DPP-I and DPP-II) with a diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) core were synthesized for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). The absorption spectra and electrochemical andExpand
Excited-state intramolecular proton-transfer (ESIPT) based fluorescence sensors and imaging agents.
In this review we will explore recent advances in the design and application of excited-state intramolecular proton-transfer (ESIPT) based fluorescent probes. Fluorescence based sensors and imagingExpand
Organic D-A-π-A Solar Cell Sensitizers with Improved Stability and Spectral Response
A novel concept “D-A-π-A” organic sensitizer instead of traditional D-π-A ones is proposed. Remarkably, the incorporated low bandgap, strong electron-withdrawing unit of benzothiadiazole showsExpand
Efficient and stable dye-sensitized solar cells based on phenothiazine sensitizers with thiophene units
Three new phenothiazine organic dyes containing thiophene, 3-(5-(3-(4-(bis(4-methoxy phenyl)amino)phenyl)-10-octyl-10H-phenothiazin-7-yl)thiophen-2-yl)-2-cyanoacrylic acid (P1),Expand
Efficient solar cells sensitized by porphyrins with an extended conjugation framework and a carbazole donor: from molecular design to cosensitization.
This work provides an effective combined strategy of molecular design and cosensitization for developing efficient dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and carbazole has been demonstrated to be a promising donor for porphyrin sensitizers. Expand
