A nitrogen-thermal approach via the reaction between transition metal species and N dopants affords us the ability to optimize the tradeoff between the number of exposed transition metal/carbon (exemplified by cobalt in this work) boundaries and the most pronounced interfacial rectifying contact to achieve the highly efficient and selective hydrogenation and dehydrogenation of N-heterocycle compounds in a reversible manner.

We described an effective way to generate a Co3O4 mesocrystal array with well-developed porosity, simply by uniting a coupled interface with hydrazine treatment. Due to the fast electron transfer and sufficient active sites, the Ti mesh-supported Co3O4 nanoneedles electrode could provide a current density of 49.9 mA cm-2 at 570 mV OER overpotential and has exceptionally high stability.

The exploitation of metal-free organic polymers as electrodes for water splitting reactions is limited by their presumably low activity and poor stability, especially for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) under more critical conditions. Now, the thickness of a cheap and robust polymer, poly(p-phenylene pyromellitimide) (PPPI) was rationally engineered by an in situ polymerization method to make the metal-free polymer available for the first time as flexible, tailorable, efficient, and ultra-stable electrodes for water oxidation over a wide pH range. The PPPI electrode with an optimized thickness of about 200 nm provided a current density of 32.8 mA cm-2 at an overpotential of 510 mV in 0.1 mol L-1 KOH, which is even higher than that (31.5 mA cm-2 ) of commercial IrO2 OER catalyst. The PPPI electrodes are scalable and stable, maintaining 92 % of its activity after a 48-h chronoamperometric stability test.

Electrochemical gas evolution and activation reactions are complicated processes, involving not only active electrocatalysts but also the interaction among solid electrodes, electrolyte, and gas-phase products and reactants. In this study, multiphase interfaces of superadsorbing graphene-based electrodes were controlled without changing the active centers to significantly facilitate mass diffusion kinetics for superior performance. The achieved in-depth understanding of how to regulate the interfacial properties to promote the electrochemical performance could provide valuable clues for electrode manufacture and for the design of more active electrocatalysts.

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: The heart wood of Dalbergia odorifera is a Chinese herbal medicine commonly used for the treatment of various ischemic diseases in Chinese medicine practice. AIM OF THE STUDY: In this study, therapeutic angiogenesis effects of the Dalbergia odorifera extract (DOE) were investigated on transgenic zebrafish in vivo and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The pro-angiogenic effects of DOE on zebrafish were examined by subintestinal vessels (SIVs) sprouting assay and intersegmental vessels (ISVs) injury assay. And the pro-angiogenic effects of DOE on HUVECs were examined by MTT, scratch assay, protein chip and western blot. RESULTS: In the in vivo studies, we found that DOE was able to dose-dependently promote angiogenesis in zebrafish SIVs area. In addition, DOE could also restore the injury in zebrafish ISVs area and upregulate the reduced mRNA expression of VEGFRs including kdr, kdrl and flt-1 induced by VEGF receptor kinase inhibitor II (VRI). In the in vitro studies, we observed that DOE promoted the proliferation, migration of HUVECs and also restored the injury induced by VRI. Moreover, protein chip and western blot experiments showed the PI3K/MAPK cell proliferation/migration pathway were activated by DOE. CONCLUSIONS: DOE has a therapeutic effects on angiogenesis, and its mechanism may be related to adjusting the VEGFRs mRNA and activation of PI3K/MAPK signaling pathway. These results suggest a strong potential for Dalbergia odorifera to be developed as an angiogenesis-promoting therapeutic.
