Hydronium-ion batteries are regarded as one of the most promising energy technologies as next-generation power sources, benefiting from their cost effectivity and sustainability merits. Herein, we propose a hydronium-ion battery which is based on an organic pyrene-4,5,9,10-tetraone anode and an...

A kind of polymeric lipid vesicles (PLVs) with pH-responsive turning on-off membrane for programed delivery of insulin in gastrointestinal (GI) tract was developed, which was self-assembled from the grafted amphipathic polymer of N-tocopheryl-N'-succinyl-ɛ-poly-l-lysine (TP/SC-g-PLL). By controlling the grafting ratio of...

Pyrene is one of the most frequently used lipid-linked fluorophores. Its most characteristic features are a long excited state lifetime and (local) concentration-dependent formation of excimers. Pyrene is also hydrophobic and thus does not significantly distort the conformation of the...

Pyrene-functionalized oligonucleotides (PFOs) are increasingly explored as tools in fundamental research, diagnostics and nanotechnology. Their popularity is linked to the ability of pyrenes to function as polarity-sensitive and quenchable fluorophores, excimer-generating units, aromatic stacking moieties and nucleic acid duplex intercalators....
