Lin Wang et al.
Science advances, 6(29), eabb2307-eabb2307 (2020-08-25)
Many natural surfaces are capable of rapidly shedding water droplets-a phenomenon that has been attributed to the presence of low solid fraction textures (Φs ~ 0.01). However, recent observations revealed the presence of unusually high solid fraction nanoscale textures (Φs
Fabricating superhydrophobic and oleophobic surface with silica nanoparticles modified by silanes and environment-friendly fluorinated chemicals.
Cai Y, et al.
Applied Surface Science, 450, 102-111 (2018)
Xiang Li et al.
ACS applied materials & interfaces, 10(14), 12042-12050 (2018-03-21)
Electrically conductive fabrics with liquid repellency and corrosive resistance are strongly desirable for wearable displays, biomedical sensors, and so forth. In the present work, highly electrically conductive and healable superamphiphobic cotton fabrics are fabricated by a solution-dipping method that involves
Zhongshun Wang et al.
Nanoscale, 9(43), 16749-16754 (2017-10-27)
The performance of surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) for detecting trace amounts of analytes depends highly on the enrichment of the diluted analytes into a small region that can be detected. A super-hydrophobic delivery (SHD) process is an excellent process to
Natasja Leth Joergensen et al.
Tissue engineering. Part A, 21(21-22), 2757-2765 (2015-09-29)
Chondrocyte-based cartilage repair techniques require control of articular chondrocyte expansion ex vivo. Articular chondrocytes have limited availability, and prolonged culturing to obtain a cell number sufficient for clinical use often results in phenotypic alterations and increased costs. In this study
Xuming Zhang et al.
Scientific reports, 5, 17399-17399 (2015-12-01)
Rapid corrosion of magnesium alloys is undesirable in structural and biomedical applications and a general way to control corrosion is to form a surface barrier layer isolating the bulk materials from the external environment. Herein, based on the insights gained
Zhongshun Wang et al.
Nanoscale, 11(14), 6677-6684 (2019-03-23)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are important markers for cancer diagnosis and treatment, but it is still a challenge to recognize and isolate CTCs because they are very rare in the blood. To selectively recognize CTCs and improve the capture efficiency
Francesca Rivello et al.
Science advances, 6(40) (2020-10-02)
Despite their important role in metastatic disease, no general method to detect circulating stromal cells (CStCs) exists. Here, we present the Metabolic Assay-Chip (MA-Chip) as a label-free, droplet-based microfluidic approach allowing single-cell extracellular pH measurement for the detection and isolation
Enhancing membrane performance in removal of hazardous VOCs from water by modified fluorinated PVDF porous material.
Al-Gharabli S, et al.
Journal of Membrane Science , 556, 214-226 (2018)
Hui-Jiuan Chen et al.
Scientific reports, 8(1), 12600-12600 (2018-08-24)
Many fields of applications require dispersion of hydrophobic particles in water, which is traditionally achieved by using surfactants or amphiphilic molecules to modify particle surfaces. However, surfactants or amphiphilic molecules may disturb the native solution or particles' surface hydrophobicity, limiting
Pengtao Wang et al.
Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 33(2), 638-644 (2016-12-16)
A quantitative characterization of the wetting states of droplets on hydrophobic textured surfaces requires direct measurement of the liquid penetration into surface cavities, which is challenging. Here, the use of quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) technology is reported for the characterization
Junfei Xia et al.
Biomaterials science, 7(6), 2348-2357 (2019-03-28)
Cell-mediated drug delivery systems utilize living cells as vehicles to achieve controlled delivery of drugs. One of the systems features integrating cells with disk-shaped microparticles termed microdevices into cell-microdevice complexes that possess some unique advantages over their counterparts. Human mesenchymal
Asger W Nørgaard et al.
Toxicological sciences : an official journal of the Society of Toxicology, 116(1), 216-224 (2010-03-30)
Exposures to two commercial nanofilm spray products (NFPs), a floor sealant (NFP 1) and a coating product for tiles (NFP 2), were investigated for airway irritation, airway inflammation, and lung damage in a mouse inhalation model. The particle exposure was
High desalination permeability, wetting and fouling resistance on superhydrophobic carbon nanotube hollow fiber membrane under self-powered electrochemical assistance.
Fan X, et al.
Journal of Membrane Science, 514(37), 501-509 (2016)
3D reactive inkjet printing of polydimethylsiloxane.
Sturgess C, et al.

Lab on a chip, 16(24), 4666-4676 (2016-11-05)
The assembly of scalable liquid compartments for binding assays in array formats constitutes a topic of fundamental importance in life sciences. This challenge can be addressed by mimicking the structure of cellular compartments with biological native conditions. Here, inkjet printing
Tian Li et al.
