Conjugated polymers with large, delocalized molecular structure have been widely used in the field of organic electronics, biological and/or chemical sensing, diagnosis and bioimaging due to their unique optical absorption and emission characteristics. Conjugated polymers functionalized by special groups, such as glycosyl, biotin, carboxyl, amino acid, peptide, nucleic acid, antibody, amino, thiol and so on, have ability to recognize certain biomolecules or heavy metal ions. Here, we review the recent development of functionalized conjugated polymer and their application in the biological and/or chemical analysis on the basis of functional groups of different types. Methods for functionalization of conjugated polymers, the application in the detection of proteins, pathogens, Hg2+ and Pb2+, and future development of this area are also included. Source

Al/ZnO/P ++-Si diodes exhibit typical unipolar resistive switching behaviors. The electroforming-free characteristics are observed after annealing the ZnO thin film at 400°C in air. The ON/OFF ratios of the resistance are in the range of 10 4-10 5 at a very low operation voltage of 0.1 V, and the devices show good endurance characteristics of over 400 cycles with negligible reduction. Finally, the memory mechanisms of the diodes are proposed on the basis of the current-voltage and resistance-voltage results. These results indicate that Al/ZnO/P ++-Si devices have potential applications in nonvolatile memory devices. © 2012 Chinese Physical Society and IOP Publishing Ltd. Source

Figure Persented: Nonplane molecules with multiple large aromatic planes could be promising candidates to form various polyhedral micro/nanocrystals by manipulating the different π⋯π stacking, tuning the cohesive energies of crystal facets, and controlling the kinetic growth process. Spirocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (SAHs) not only have two cross-shaped aromatic planes but also offer the feature of supramolecular steric hindrance, making it favorable for the heterogeneous kinetic growth into highly symmetric polyhedra. Herein, we report that a novel SAH compound, spiro[fluorene-9,7′- dibenzo[c,h]acridine]-5′-one (SFDBAO), can self-assemble into various monodispersed shapes such as hexahedra, octahedra, and decahedra through the variation of either different types of surfactants, such as Pluronic 123 (P123) and cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB), or growth parameters. In addition, the possible mechanism of crystal facet growth has been proposed according to the SEM, XRD, TEM, and SAED characterization of organic polyhedral micro/nanocrystals. The unique cruciform-shaped SAHs have been demonstrated as fascinating supramolecular synthons for various highly symmetric polyhedral assembling. © 2012 American Chemical Society. Source

We report a green and efficient method for chemoselective deoxidization of graphene oxide via the ultraviolet irradiation catalyzed with 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-piperidinol. While the sp 2-hybridized oxygen functional groups are removed after the reduction, the epoxy and hydroxyl groups are retained in the chemoselectively reduced graphene oxide (CrGO). The obtained CrGO nanosheets exhibit the high solubility and excellent electronic stability, which allows for the fabrication of thin film devices through a solution processing. As a proof of concept, a CrGO-based write-once-read-many- times memory device with the desirable stability and long-time operation is fabricated. © 2012 American Chemical Society. Source

A hybrid complex composed of an anionic conjugated polyelectrolyte (PFB-SO3Na) and a cationic phosphorescent Ir(III) oligomer is formed through electrostatic interaction by simple physical mixing in aqueous media. Due to their opposite charges and their effective spectral overlap, fluorescence resonance energy transfer occurs from the blue-emissive PFB-SO3Na to the red-emissive phosphorescent Ir(III) complex, which allows ratiometric and colorimetric Hg2+ sensing in aqueous solution with good selectivity, sensitivity, as well as visible detection. Time-resolved photoluminescence is applied for Hg2+ detection, which can effectively eliminate the background interference and improve the sensing sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio in complicated media. An anionic conjugated polyelectrolye and a cationic phosphorescent Ir(III) complex form a hybrid probe for ratiometric Hg2+ sensing with good selectivity and low detection limit. Time-resolved photoluminescence is further applied to eliminate the interference from background fluorescence, which opens new opportunities for Hg2+ sensing in complex media. © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
