Spectroscopic evidence for the superconductivity of elemental metal Y under pressure

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 03 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00457-6The origin of superconductivity in ytterbium has been uncovered by researchers from South Korea and China. Superconductors offer no resistance to the flow of electricity. While superconductivity has been observed in many materials, usually at low temperatures or high...

Interface engineering for substantial performance enhancement in epitaxial all-perovskite oxide capacitors

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 27 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00460-xIn this work, we demonstrated the critical roles of oxygen vacancies and substituted transition-metal atoms in determining the leakage current of epitaxial all-perovskite oxide capacitor, and established a strategy for reducing the leakage current via interface engineering.

Squid/synthetic polymer double-network gel: elaborated anisotropy and outstanding fracture toughness characteristics

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 20 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00454-9Natural/synthetic hybrid double-network (DN) hydrogels with hierarchical anisotropy and high toughness characteristics are prepared by directly using a squid mantle as an anisotropic soft bioproduct for the primary network and polyacrylamide (PAAm) as a synthetic polymer...

Protein nanoparticle cellular fate and responses in murine macrophages

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 13 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00453-wIllustration of cellular fate and responses of macrophages to ferritin NPs. With potential theranostic applications of organic NPs targeting macrophages, in-depth study of internalization and cellular responses of a model organic NP (Archaeoglobus fulgidus derived ferritin)...

A photothermal-response oxygen release platform based on a hydrogel for accelerating wound healing

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 13 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00456-7In this work, we prepared a composite hydrogel system of PDA-HA hydrogel-loaded CaO2-ICG@LA@MnO2 nanoparticles that showed excellent photothermal performance under NIR irradiation and realized the on-off release of oxygen and ROS. Controllable and sustainable oxygen...

A cyclic heptapeptide-based hydrogel boosts the healing of chronic skin wounds in diabetic mice and patients

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 23 December 2022; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00444-xWe optimized the RL-QN15 peptide to obtain the cyclic heptapeptide (CyRL-QN15) with excellent therapeutic potency against skin wounds. Then, a multifunctional HPDAlCyRL-QN15/ZA hydrogel was prepared and characterized, which significantly enhanced the pro-healing potency...

One-pot synthesis of stable antioxidant metal-ornamented polyphenol supramolecular assemblies for material engineering

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 16 December 2022; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00449-6Natural polyphenols reduce metal ions into metal nanoclusters in water followed by subsequent self-assembly into metal-ornamented polyphenol supramolecular (MOPS) assemblies. MOPS assemblies, which integrate the merits of both the natural polyphenols and metal nanoclusters,...

Author Correction: Perovskite quantum dot-induced monochromatization for broadband photodetection of wafer-scale molybdenum disulfide

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 12 December 2022; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00452-xAuthor Correction: Perovskite quantum dot-induced monochromatization for broadband photodetection of wafer-scale molybdenum disulfide

Aptamer-functionalized smart photonic hydrogels: application for the detection of thrombin in human serum

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 09 December 2022; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00443-yAptamers functionalized smart photonic hydrogels based on two-dimensional photonic crystal (2DPC) were constructed and used as a facile biosensor for the accurate detection of thrombin in human serum by simply measuring the Debye diffraction ring of 2DPC without needing...

Colossal barocaloric effect achieved by exploiting the amorphous high entropy of solidified polyethylene glycol

NPG Asia Materials, Published online: 09 December 2022; doi:10.1038/s41427-022-00448-7A technique that turns liquid polymers used in medicine and industry into solid-state refrigerants could lower demand for hydrofluorocarbon-based coolants. Recent studies have shown that plastics which undergo energy-absorbing structural phase transitions in response...
