A series of oxacalix[2]arene[2]triazines bearing one anionic head such as carboxylate, sulfonate, sulfate, and phosphate were synthesized. With the anionic head and complementary V-shape electron-deficient cavity, these macrocycles can serve as dual building units, and their anion-π directed self-assembly was investigated. The formation of oligomeric aggregates in solution was revealed by nuclear magnetic resonance, dynamic light scattering, and mass spectroscopy. Crystal structures further confirmed chainlike assembly formation directed by anion-π interactions...

Photosystem II (PSII) modified gold electrodes were prepared by the deposition of PSII reconstituted with platinum nanoparticles (PtNPs) on Au electrodes. PtNPs modified with 1-[15-(3,5,6-trimethyl-1,4-benzoquinone-2-yl)]pentadecyl disulfide ((TMQ(CH2)15S)2) were incorporated into the QB site of PSII isolated from the thermophilic cyanobacterium, Thermosynechococcus elongatus. The reconstitution was confirmed by QA-reoxidation measurements. PSII reconstituted with PtNPs was deposited and integrated on a Au(111) surface modified with 4,4'-biphenyldithiol...

A dual redox and bio-relevant triggered supramolecular system is developed through the non-covalent host-guest interactions between the ferrocene (Fc) on camptothecin (CPT) and β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) at the end of methoxy polyethylene glycol (mPEG). The two segments can form a stable non-covalent supramolecular block copolymer mPEG-β-CD/Fc-CPT, which could further self-assemble into stable micelles in aqueous solution. Interestingly, these supramolecular micelles showed uniform sphere structure, high and constant drug loading content, hyper-fast redox-responsive drug release, and exhibited equal cellular proliferation inhibition toward A549 cancer cells, while the cytotoxicity evaluation of mPEG-β-CD indicated good biocompatibility...

Transcription activator-like effector nuclease (TALEN) is a programmable genome editing tool with wide applications. Since TALENs perform cleavage of DNA as heterodimers, a pair of TALENs must be synthesized for each target genome locus. Conventionally, TALEN pairs are either expressed on separate vectors or synthesized separately and then subcloned to the same vector. Neither approach allows high-throughput construction of TALEN libraries for large-scale applications. Here we present an assembly scheme to synthesize and express a pair of TALENs in a single transcript format with the help of a P2A self-cleavage sequence...

Supramolecular self-assembly is an important process that enables the conception of complex structures mimicking biological motifs. Herein, we constructed helical fibrils through chiral self-assembly of nucleobase-peptide conjugates (NPCs), where achiral nucleobases are helically displayed on the surface of fibrils, comparable to polymerized nucleic acids. Selective binding between DNA and the NPC fibrils was observed with fluorescence polarization. Taking advantage of metal-nucleobase recognition, we highlight the possibility of deposition/assembly of plasmonic nanoparticles onto the fibrillar constructs...

Herein we report the first study of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalyzed by a cofacial porphyrin scaffold accessed in high yield (overall 53%) using coordination-driven self-assembly with no chromatographic purification steps. The ORR activity was investigated using chemical and electrochemical techniques on monomeric cobalt(II) tetra(meso-4-pyridyl)porphyrinate (CoTPyP) and its cofacial analogue [Ru8(η(6)-iPrC6H4Me)8(dhbq)4(CoTPyP)2][OTf]8 (Co Prism) (dhbq = 2,5-dihydroxy-1,4-benzoquinato, OTf = triflate) as homogeneous oxygen reduction catalysts...

The aim of this study was to produce human parainfluenza virus type 4 (HPIV4) nucleocapsid (N) protein in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae expression system, to explore its structural and antigenic properties and to evaluate its applicability in serology. The use of an optimized gene encoding HPIV4 N protein amino acid (aa) sequence GenBank AGU90031.1 allowed high yield of recombinant N protein forming nucleocapsid-like particles (NLPs) in yeast. A substitution L332D disrupted self-assembly of NLPs, confirming the role of this position in the N proteins of Paramyxovirinae...

Two classes of Ni-Ln clusters [Ln4Ni3L3(OAc)6(NO3)3(OH)3] (Ln = Gd (1) and Tb (2)) and [Ln6Ni7L6(OAc)12(OH)6](OH)2 (Ln = Gd (3) and Dy (4)) were prepared using a specifically designed Schiff base ligand built around a flexible (CH2)2O(CH2)2O(CH2)2 chain. 1 and 2 exhibit cone-like structures, while 3 and 4 have nanosized sandwich architectures. The structures were studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and TEM, and magnetic properties were investigated.

A non-covalent self-assembled chiral alanyl aminopyridine ligand exhibits supramolecular chirality in solution, independent of the organic solvent used. The supramolecular chirality of the assemblies is completely inverted by complexation to zinc ions. To date, such a supramolecular metal-ligand system has not been reported in the literature.

Controlling the self-assembly of multicomponent systems provides a key to designing new materials and understanding the molecular complexity of biology. Here, we demonstrate the first use of MALDI-imaging to characterize a multicomponent self-assembling peptide fiber. Observations of mixed peptide systems over time demonstrate how simple sequence variation can change the balance between kinetic and thermodynamic products.

Nanosphere lithography, an inexpensive and high throughput technique capable of producing nanostructure (below 100 nm feature size) arrays, relies on the formation of a monolayer of self-assembled nanospheres, followed by custom-etching to produce nanometre size features on large-area substrates. A theoretical model underpinning the self-ordering process by centrifugation is proposed to describe the interplay between the spin speed and solution concentration. The model describes the deposition of a dense and uniform monolayer by the implicit contribution of gravity, centrifugal force and surface tension, which can be accounted for using only the spin speed and the solid/liquid volume ratio...

The alloying-dealloying reactions of SnS2 proceeds with the initial conversion reaction of SnS2 with lithium that produces Li2S. Unfortunately, due to the electrochemical inactivity of Li2S, the conversion reaction of SnS2 is irreversible, which significantly limit its potential applications in lithium-ion batteries. Herein, a systematic understanding of transition metal molybdenum (Mo) as a catalyst in SnS2 anode is presented. It is found that Mo catalyst is able to efficiently promote the reversible conversion of Sn to SnS2...

Nature has evolved hierarchical structures of hybrid materials with excellent mechanical properties. Inspired by nacre's architecture, a ternary nanostructured composite has been developed, wherein stacked lamellas of 1D vanadium pentoxide nanofibres, intercalated with water molecules, are complemented by 2D graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets. The components self-assemble at low temperature into hierarchically arranged, highly flexible ceramic-based papers. The papers' mechanical properties are found to be strongly influenced by the amount of the integrated GO phase...

Self-assembly of individual building blocks into highly ordered structures, analogous to spontaneous growth of crystals from atoms, is a promising approach to realize the collective properties of nanocrystals. Yet the ability to reliably produce macroscopic assemblies is unavailable and key factors determining assembly quality/yield are not understood. Here we report the formation of highly ordered superlattice films, with single crystalline domains of up to half a millimetre in two dimensions and thickness of up to several microns from nanocrystals with tens of nanometres in diameter...

Morphology controllable fabrication of electrode materials is of great significance but is still a major challenge for high performance Li ion batteries. Herein, we propose a novel space constraint assembly approach to tune the morphology of Mn(terephthalic acid) (PTA)-MOF, in which benzonic acid was employed as a modulator to adjust the available MOF assembly directions. As a result, Mn(PTA)-MOFs with microquadrangulars, microflakes, and spindle-like microrods morphologies have been achieved. MnO/C hybrids with preserved morphologies were further obtained by self-sacrificial and thermal transformation of Mn(PTA)-MOFs...

Recently ion-intercalation hybrid supercapacitors with high energy density at high power density have been widely investigated to meet the ever-increasing practical applications. Here a unique hybrid supercapacitor is designed and fabricated using self-assembled orthorhombic-phase niobium oxide@carbon (T-Nb2O5@C) nanowires as an anode and commercially available activated carbon as a cathode. The 3D-interconnected T-Nb2O5@C nanowires have been synthesized via a highly efficient microwave-solvothermal method combined with subsequent thermal treatment...

In the pursuit of materials with structure-related function, directing the assembly of materials is paramount. The resultant structure can be controlled by ordering of reactants, spatial confinement and control over the reaction/crystallisation times and stoichiometries. These conditions can be administered through the use of flow technologies as evidenced by the growing widespread application of microfluidics for the production of nanomaterials; the function of which is often dictated or circumscribed by size...

The study of supramolecular polymers in the bulk, in solution, and at the solid-liquid interface has recently become a major topic of interest, going from fundamental aspects to applications in materials science. However, examples of 1D supramolecular polymers at the liquid-liquid interface are mostly unexplored. Here we describe the light-assisted supramolecular polymerization of triarylamine molecules and their organization at a chloroform-water interface. The resulting interfacial nematic layer of these 1D supramolecular polymers is further used as a template for the precise alignment of spherical gold nanoparticles coming from the water phase...

We report on the surface-guided synthesis of an unprecedented dinuclear organocobalt complex, its self-assembly into a complex nanoarchitecture, and a single-molecule level investigation of its switching behavior. Initially, an organic layer is prepared by depositing hexakis((trimethylsilyl)ethynyl)-benzene under ultra-high vacuum conditions onto Ag(111). After Co dosage at 200 Kelvin, low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) reveals an epitaxy-mediated organization mechanism of molecules and on-surface formed host-guest complexes...

The interfacial electrochemistry of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of ferrocenyldodecanethiolate on gold (FcC12SAu) electrodes is applied to detect the micellization of some common anionic surfactants, sodium n-alkyl sulfates, sodium n-alkyl sulfonates, sodium diamyl sulfosuccinate, and sodium dodecanoate, in aqueous solution by cyclic voltammetry. The apparent formal redox potential (Eº´SAM) of the FcC12SAu SAM is used to track changes in the concentration of the unaggregated surfactant anions and determine the critical micelle concentration (cmc)...
