About Cover

The cover photo describing the crystal structure of Na5YSi4O12 with glass-ceramic Na+ superionic conductors. As discussed by Toshinori Okura, these glass-ceramic conductors have great potential and are one of the most important groups of solid electrolytes, not only because of its practical usefulness for advanced batteries but also for its three-dimensional ionic conducting nature.

Abstract

Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) are of unique and interesting materials being firstly reported 100 years ago. They are one of the most widely studied nanomaterials potential for disease cure. To improve the colloidal stability, biocompatibility, and hemocompatibility of GNPs, chitosan (CS), a naturally produced polysaccharide with excellent biocompatibility and biodegradation, has been modified to generate water-soluble derivatives and used as the stabilizing agent of GNPs. In the presence of these derivatives, GNPs are stabilized, functionalized, and assembled via electronic static and covalent bond interactions. Based on these works, GNPs with different dimensional, morphology, and crystal lattice are obtained, which can be further apply to a variety of applications in sensing, imaging, therapy, and catalysis. 

Keywords
