Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), due to their self-renewal capacity and pluripotency, have become a potential source of transplantable β-cells for the treatment of diabetes. However, it is imperative that the derived cells fulfill the criteria for clinical treatment. In this study, we replaced common Matrigel with a synthetic peptide-acrylate surface (Synthemax) to expand undifferentiated hESCs and direct their differentiation in a defined and serum-free medium. We confirmed that the cells still expressed pluripotent markers, had the ability to differentiate into three germ layers, and maintained a normal karyotype after 10 passages of subculture. Next, we reported an efficient protocol for deriving nearly 86% definitive endoderm cells from hESCs under serum-free conditions. Moreover, we were able to obtain insulin-producing cells within 21 days following a simple three-step protocol. The results of immunocytochemical and quantitative gene expression analysis showed that the efficiency of induction was not significantly different between the Synthemax surface and the Matrigel-coated surface. Thus, we provided a totally defined condition from hESC culture to insulin-producing cell differentiation, and the derived cells could be a therapeutic resource for diabetic patients in the future. © Copyright 2014, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. 2014.

This communication demonstrated the technique of using microemulsion to synthesize ZnO crystals with a variety of morphologies. A nearly 30% improved efficiency of a dye-sensitized solar cell can be obtained by using one of the synthesized crystals with coral-like structure, as compared to the commercially available ZnO particles. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2012.

This work demonstrates a method of electroplating nanostructured Pt, Ir, and Pt-Ir at room temperature. All the obtained samples have been characterized by SEM and XPS. By controlling the volume ratio of Pt to Ir electrolytes, Pt(100%)-Ir(0%), Pt(91.2%)-Ir(8.8%), Pt(81.3%)-Ir(18.7%), and Pt(12.4%)-Ir(87.6%) were formed on the surfaces. Besides, the nanostructure was formed with the help of vigorously hydrogen bubble generation. The results indicate that co-electrodeposition of nanostructured Pt-Ir films at room temperature can be achieved by manipulating the concentration of Ir electrolyte and the concentration of HCl. © 2012 The Electrochemical Society.

Novel sub-micro sized hexagonal clubs of ZnO (HC-ZnO), which are coated as a scattering layer (SL) for the photoanode of a DSSC, are synthesized. X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns of the ZnO clubs show clear peaks corresponding to wurtzite crystal phase of ZnO. Scanning electron microscopic (SEM) images show that each club has two opposite hexagonal faces (parts) of unequal dimensions. High resolution transmission electron microscopic (HR-TEM) image of a single ZnO club reveals that the ZnO is single crystalline and has wurtzite crystal structure; the image indicates a lattice spacing (d) of 0.26 nm; this is ascribed to the (002) planar spacing of the hexagonal ZnO. A solar-to-electricity conversion efficiency (η) of 3.36% is achieved for the cell with the double layer (DL) film, which is 16% higher than that of the cell with only transparent layer (TL) of commercial ZnO (2.89%) and far higher than that of the cell with SL (0.05%). The η of the cell with the DL (3.36%) could further be improved to 4.28% through the modification of the DL surface with TiOx. Incident photo-to-current conversion efficiency (IPCE) curves, UV-vis absorption spectra, energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectra, and electrochemical impedance spectra (EIS) are also used to substantiate the results. © 2011 the Owner Societies.

Over the past decade, the development of non-enzymatic electrochemical biosensors had thriven at a considerable rate. Compared with the traditional enzymatic electrochemical biosensors, the non-enzymatic electrochemical biosensors have the advantages of higher sensitivity and stability. Recently, plenty of researches have devoted to synthesizing new materials, such as bimetallic nanoparticles, and also develop specific nanostructures on the sensor surface to solve the problem of poisoning and increase the selectivity. This work develops two non-enzymatic glucose sensors that are based on nanostructured Pt-Ir films which were deposited by electrodeposition. Because of the relatively high deposition current density, bubbles produced vigorously on the working electrode surface. This phenomenon results in leaf-like nanostructure formed naturally on the surface of the working electrode and further increased the catalytic reaction area. Besides, as determined by the sampling analysis method that is developed herein, the presented Pt-Ir sensors mitigate the current drifting problem which is easily observed when a constant potential is applied in an amperometric glucose detection. Furthermore, the presented Pt-Ir sensors show high sensitivity and stability in 1X PBS (0.15 M NaCl) at 37°C in the glucose concentration range of 1-12 mM. Therefore, the presented non-enzymatic glucose sensors not only provide great potential in biomedical applications, such as homecare products, but can also be adapted for the biological application, such as continuous cell culture monitoring. © 2013 National Taiwan University.

A simple, rapid, and environmentally friendly method was used to synthesize high quality nanoscale zinc oxide (ZnO) particles through microwave irradiation. The synthesized ZnO nanoparticles can be easily deposited on solid substrate (silicon wafer) through spin coating or dip coating. Such type of ZnObased TFT devices is expected to have higher device performance than organic-based devices. © 2011 SID.
