A figure-of-eight molecule twists the red light

Development of fluorophores for CPL, circularly polarized luminescence, has attracted much attention. CPL has large potential toward future applications such as 3D displays and biosensing.  Major challenges in creating good CPL fluorophores are; 1) large anisotropic dissymmetric

Luminescent molecular wires that consist of up to eight copper atoms

Linear multi-atom complexes of Group 11 metals (Cu, Ag, Au) exhibit fascinating luminescence properties that make them highly interesting 1) for the systematic design of molecular wires in nanoelectronics and 2) their application as light-emitting building blocks

White light emissive molecular siblings

Human eye is capable of detecting only a relatively tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum. However limited our vision might be, it is filled with the experiences of numerous colors, colors that control our emotional responses.  White-light

Direct monitoring of the interaction between ROS and cerium dioxide nanoparticles in living cells

Swallowing the pill we don’t know whether it comes to the target, destroys the harmful objects (microbes, viruses, cancer cells) and/or whether it works correctly at the center of the inflammation. Let’s imagine that each grain of

Cerium fluoride nanoparticles protect cells against oxidative stress

Nano-biomaterials engineering is one of today’s most promising areas of materials science. In very recent years, nanocrystalline cerium oxide (nanoceria) has been shown to possess enormous biological activity, which originates from its ability to scavenge the reactive
