Our article titled “Nanoparticle-protein corona complexes govern the biological fates and functions of nanoparticles” is one of the 30 most accessed articles in Journal of Materials Chemistry B in 2014. The article provides a comprehensive review on the effects of particle physicochemical characteristics along with the protein profiles in the biological medium, how it formed protein corona and most importantly how the dynamic nature and protein fingerprints of the formed corona govern the biological responses toward nanoparticles.

Protective interlayer of TiO2 in Cu2O–CuO heterojunction thin film as a highly stable visible light photocathode

The article here reported that the visible light-induced photocurrent generation and photoelectrochemical stability of p-type Cu2O–CuO photocathodes are improved significantly upon incorporating an interlayer of TiO2 between Cu2O and CuO. The TiO2 layer hinders the electron conduction at the semiconductor–electrolyte interface (improved stability) as well as promoting electron transfer from Cu2O to CuO (increased photocurrent).

Photocatalysis: from Material Design to System Engineering
