High efficiency OSCs by simultaneous plasmon-optical and -electrical effects from plasmonic asymmetric modes

Organic solar cells (OSCs) have the advantages of low-cost, non-toxic and easy to scale up etc., which are promising to address the energy issues. However, the OSC efficiency is still low to meet the commercialization criteria. The

Producing cellular transport proteins without cells: a key to study novel molecular targets of malaria parasites

Malaria tropica, the most severe and fatal form of malaria, is caused by mosquito-transmitted, single-celled Plasmodium falciparum parasites. More than 3 billion people in 100 countries live in malaria-endangered areas. Every year, > 200 million new infections

Methadone and quality of life: high, low or adjusted doses?

The usefulness of methadone in treating opiate addiction is unquestionable. It is a simple, clean and cheap treatment without any significant side effects. In recent decades, many institutions have written guides and have formulated recommendations advising the

A new three-headed, long-tailed molecular beast eats cancer

We made and tested a series of new compounds containing three chemical rings and hooked them to long carbon tails. These new molecules killed a broad range of pediatric and adult cancer cells including neuroblastoma, osteosarcoma, malignant
