DETAILS

We have demonstrated a novel methodology that controls molecular machine handling, molecular receptor tuning, and life regulation at liquid interfaces. This concept can be realized at dynamic two-dimensional medium such as thin films at the air-water interface, i.e., Langmuir monolayer because this medium possess both features of bulk and molecular dimension. For example, we successfully manipulated molecular machines (nm size) at the air-water interface upon bulk (10-100 cm size) motion of the entire monolayer and realized “capture and release” of aqueous guest molecules using molecular machines embedded at the air-water interface. By mechanical tuning of molecular receptor, mechanically controlled chiral recognition of amino acid and discrimination of nucleosides by the supramolecular monolayer was successfully demonstrated. This process can be regarded as molecular tuning.

DETAILS

On the basis of CVD techniques that can produce large-area, high-quality, and crystallinity-controlled graphene samples, we studied their deformation by stretching, folding, and stacking, and the related mechanical properties. Specifically, 1) we developed a camphor-assisted method to free-stand centimeter-long ultrathin films and do tensile test. By involving CVD monolayer graphene, the results showed that the Young’s modulus of centimeter-long monolayer graphene was around 700 GPa and the fracture strength was 3~5 GPa, far lower than the values of ~100 GPa for the micron sized graphene; 2) A centimeter-sized monolayer graphene film was folded to get a bilayer graphene film that has tunable interlayer twist; 3) A folding method was used to assemble a laminated composite that has rich graphene folds. From the bending tests and modeling, it was found that the graphene folds reinforced the composite; 4) A stacking method was used to assemble 100 layers of monolayer CVD graphene films to get a new carbon material that has low defect density, pure carbon content, highly ordered stacking manner in c axis direction, and ~50% interlayer twist structure. The mechanical tests showed that it had significantly higher stiffness and fracture strength than other macroscale films made of solely graphene or graphite, along with a high in-plane electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity. 5) Experiments showed that the single-crystal monolayer CVD graphene exhibited a structural-directing effect that is, the highly crystalline graphene accelerates the carbonization and graphitization of polymers in a ‘catalytic’ manner.

Department of Engineering Mechanics, Tsinghua University

DETAILS

The creation of materials with a combination of high strength, substantial deformability and ductility, large elastic limit and low density represents a long-standing challenge, because these properties are, in general, mutually exclusive. Using a combination of two-photon lithography and high-temperature pyrolysis, we have created pyrolytic carbon micropillars with diameters of 0.7-12.7 m. We further characterized the microstructures and mechanical properties of these pyrolytic carbon micropillars. These micropillars consist of 1-1.5 nm curved graphene layers, and have an average tensile strength of 1.60 GPa, a compressive strength approaching the theoretical limit of ~13.7 GPa, a substantial elastic limit of 20-30% and a low density of ~1.4 g/cm3. More remarkably, the pyrolytic carbon micropillars with diameters below 2.3 m sustained compressive strains that exceed 50% without catastrophic fracture, deforming like rubber. Large scale atomistic simulations reveal that this combination of beneficial mechanical properties is enabled by the local deformation of 1 nm curled graphene fragments within the pyrolytic carbon microstructure, the interactions among neighbouring fragments and the presence of covalent carbon-carbon bonds.

Xiaoyan Li received his Ph.D. degree from Brown University in 2012. He is currently a tenured Associate Professor in Department of Engineering Mechanics, Tsinghua University. So far, he has published 62 papers in the refereed journals, including Nature, Nature Mater., Nature Nanotech., Nature Comm., Nano Lett., PNAS, Advanced Mater., PRL, Nano Energy, Science Advances etc., and 3 book chapters. He served as the editorial board members of Communications Materials, Nanomaterials, Materials, and Science China-Technological Science and Acta Mechanica Sinica.

Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Power Mechanical Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan

DETAILS

Since the introduction of the first expounded triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) in 2012, the theoretical and practical aspects of the TENG have been researched as an alternative energy harvesting technology to convert mechanical energy into electricity efficiently. Numerous self-powered sensing systems have adopted the TENG as a power source to further explore its versatile applications toward different targets. In this study, we employed a TENG to replace a traditional power supply for synthesizing different metallic nanoparticles using an electrochemical approach. Carbon fibers were adopted as the conductive substrates to grow the metallic nanoparticles, where the size and density of the nanoparticles on carbon fibers can be controlled by the electric output of the TENG. Additionally, we demonstrated that the as-prepared carbon modified and integrated with the TENG to construct a wearable self-powered sensing system exhibited significant selectivity and sensitivity toward lactate detection. Furthermore, the design of the sensing unit was favourable regarding its adaptability and flexibility to fit human body shapes and postures. As demonstrated in this study, the as-prepared self-powered sensing system could detect the lactate concentration in human perspiration, which can be an ideal wearable device for end users who seek real-time monitoring of their physical condition. This study concludes with a proposal for non-invasive biosensors, which provide boundless potential for future cross-field applications.

Prof. Dr. Horacio Cabral

University of Tokyo, Department of Bioengineering, Tokyo, Japan

DETAILS

Messenger RNA (mRNA) has high potential for developing a wide range of therapies, such as immunotherapy and protein replacement. However, mRNA presents unfavorable characteristics, including large size, immunogenicity, limited cellular uptake and sensitivity to enzymatic degradation, which limit its use as therapeutic agent. In this regard, supramolecular assemblies offers great opportunity for developing systems capable of loading, protecting and releasing mRNA, as well as navigating in biological environments for promoting mRNA translation. Here, I present our recent approaches directed to enhance mRNA stability and function in biological settings through supramolecular engineering of mRNA and polymeric assemblies. These approaches include the application of RNA nanotechnology to mRNA through the hybridization of RNA oligonucleotide linkers and the application of innovative polymeric assemblies for stabilizing mRNA structure with high potential for improving mRNA systemic delivery.

Nanomedicine, Supramolecular Chemistry

Talk
Messenger RNA (mRNA) has high potential for developing a wide range of therapies, such as immunotherapy and protein replacement. However, mRNA presents unfavorable characteristics, including large size, immunogenicity, limited cellular uptake and sensitivity to enzymatic degradation, which limit its use as therapeutic agent. In this regard, supramolecular assemblies offers great opportunity for developing systems capable of loading, protecting and releasing mRNA, as well as navigating in biological environments for promoting mRNA translation. Here, I present our recent approaches directed to enhance mRNA stability and function in biological settings through supramolecular engineering of mRNA and polymeric assemblies. These approaches include the application of RNA nanotechnology to mRNA through the hybridization of RNA oligonucleotide linkers and the application of innovative polymeric assemblies for stabilizing mRNA structure with high potential for improving mRNA systemic delivery.
