Because of its good biocompatibility, high surface-to-volume ratio, and distinct surface electrical properties, porous anodic alumina (PAA) membrane has been used to selectively enrich phosphopeptides from a mixture of synthetic peptides and tryptic digest product of beta-casein by a direct MALDI-TOF MS analysis. As we reported previously, PAA membrane has(More)
The synthesis of Pt nanocrystals with controlled size and morphology has drawn enormous interest due to their particular catalytic activity. We present a facile and green hydrothermal method for synthesizing monodisperse Pt nanocubes (Pt-NCs) with polyallylamine hydrochloride (PAH) as a complex-forming agent, capping agent and facet-selective agent, and(More)
A facile and green method has been demonstrated to synthesize ultrasmall tungsten oxide quantum dots (WOx QDs). The water-soluble WOx QDs present high luminescence stability, strong peroxidase-like activity, and excellent electrochemiluminescence properties. This work provides an eco-friendly strategy to prepare multifunctional WOx QDs, and opens the door(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometric (MALDI-TOF MS) analysis of proteins in salt-containing solution was performed for the first time using porous anodic alumina (PAA) membrane as sample support. The resulting spectral quality of proteins under standard sample preparation conditions was superior to that of normal(More)
The fast development of biotechnology promotes the development of doping. From recombinant protein to gene doping, there is a great challenge to their detection. The improvement of gene therapy and potential to enhance athletic performance open the door for gene doping. After a brief introduction of the concept of gene doping, the current status and(More)
It is challenging to develop a robust nanoprobe for real-time operational and accurate detection of heavy metals in single cells. Fe-CN coordination chemistry has been well studied to determine the structural characteristics of hemeproteins by different techniques. However, the frequently used cyanide ligands are inorganic molecules that release cyanide(More)
The structure formation upon spinodal decomposition of a two-dimensional model system, a Au adatom gas on a Au(111) surface, was observed in situ by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). A thermodynamically unstable state was prepared by applying microsecond voltage pulses to the STM tip in an electrochemical system, causing the random dissolution of Au(More)
