A silicon nanowires (SiNWs)-based fluorescent sensor for complexed Cu(2+) was realized. High sensitivity and selectivity of the present sensor facilitate its bioapplications. The sensor was successfully used to detect the Cu(2+) in liver extract. Meanwhile, real-time and in situ monitoring of Cu(2+) released from apoptotic HeLa cell was performed using the(More)
The supramolecular approach plays a pivotal role in the construction of smart and functional materials due to the reversible nature of noncovalent interactions. In the present work, two compounds, cholesterol-functionalized calix[4]pyrrole (CCP) and perylene bisimide diacid (PDA), were synthesized. Little fluorescence is observed in the ethanol solution of(More)
A perylene bisimide (PBI) derivative (C-PBI-Py) of pyrene (Py) and cholesteryl residue (C) possessing intra-molecular energy transfer properties and three reference compounds (C-Py, C-PBI, PBI-Py) were designed and synthesized, where C was introduced in order to enhance the solubility of the relevant compounds in organic solvents. UV-vis absorption,(More)
Low-molecular-mass organic gelator (LMOG)-based molecular gels are known as one of the most attractive soft materials and have received great attention since the early 1990s. In the last few decades, many LMOGs have been synthesized, and a series of theories have been proposed to better understand molecular gels. However, only limited applications of LMOGs(More)
A novel, facile, and effective method for modification of SiNWs or SiNW arrays has been developed. In this method, reaction between reductive Si-H bonds on the surface of SiNWs and the aldehyde group containing in organic molecules has been used for immobilization of organic molecules onto the surface of SiNW arrays. The method is time saving and can be(More)
