Nanomaterials are well known to possess excellent electrical, optical, thermal, catalytic properties and strong mechanical strength, which offer great opportunities to construct nanomaterials-based sensors or devices for determining various kinds of biochemical molecules in water and biological sample matrices. Various nanomaterials including upconversion nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles, carbon nitrides and quantum dots have been extensively investigated in my laboratory for highly selective/sensitive sensing toxic metal ions, toxic gases, drugs and biochemical molecules with simplicity. Novel multiple emitting amphiphilic conjugated polythiophene-coated CdTe quantum dots for picogram level determination of the 2,4,6-trinitrophenol (TNP) explosive are developed. Portable, cost effective, and simple to use paper strips and chitosan film are successfully applied to visually detect as little as 2.29 pg of TNP. The possibility of utilizing a smartphone with a color-scanning APP in the determination of TNP is also established. Novel “turn off-on” optosensors based on amphiphilic thiophene copolymers coated CdTe quantum dots were also developed for the dual detection of heparin and spermine. The emission of the nanoparticles is found to be quenched in the presence of heparin by electron transfer mechanism through electrostatic and hydrogen bonding interactions. We report the effective synthesis of biocompatible upconversion nanoparticles (UCNP)-loaded phosphate micelles and successful delivery of UCNPs and drugs to prostate cancer cells via secreted phospholipase A2 (sPLA-2) enzyme cleavage of the loaded micelles for the first time. The selective release of UCNPs to prostate cancer cells rather than other cells, specifically cervical cancer cells, was observed and confirmed by a range of bioimaging studies. In addition, the proposed method was successfully utilized for selective drug delivery of estramustine phosphate, anti-prostate cancer drug, to prostate cancer cells. Drug encapsulation efficiency (EE%) was found to be 81.432% and release efficiency (RE%) was found to be 91%. Encapsulated drug was tested on in vitro application, and cytotoxicity test confirmed the selective delivery of estramustine on prostate cancer cells

Control of the chemical composition and electronic structure at surfaces and interfaces for efficient charge and ion transfer

Last decade, hybrid organic/inorganic and all-inorganic hetero-structures attracted increased interest due to the distinctly properties that can arise from their interfaces, such as a high optical absorption, superconductivity, high catalytic activity, or unusual magnetic behavior. Defect engineering at the surfaces and interfaces is coming into the spotlight as novel approach for the fabrication of systems with advanced properties. I will present our recent studies on defect engineering addressed to the development efficient energy conversion technologies. On the first, I will present the investigation of hybrid organic/inorganic light absorber material, methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI), when it is in contact with different, organic or inorganic, charge transfer layers for solar cells applications. The performance of perovskite solar cells based on MAPbI3­ is limited by surface recombination at Electron Transfer Layer (ETL)/MAPbIinterface. I will show that capping a TiO2 ETL surface with Pb atoms provides a new solution to this challenge. The X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) measurements of Pb-capped ETL surfaces showed that the oxidation state of Pb is bivalent (2+) up to a complete monolayer limit, while an excess of PbO coverage in a multilayer and/or nanocluster morphology leads to the formation of deep defect states due to the partial oxidation of Pb to the trivalent (3+) state. Also, the TRPL measurements for the perovskite/ETL interfaces revealed an approximately two-fold higher charge injection rate from the perovskite to the monolayer PbO-modified ETL compared to the pristine perovskite/ETL interface. Density functional theory calculations and experiments identify that the PbO monolayer converts the TiO2/perovskite interface into a metallic state, providing atomistic origins for about two-fold increase in charge transfer and enhanced photovoltaic efficiency from 17.8% up to 20.4%. On the other hand, the subsequent excessive Pb capping was found to create a semiconducting layer with a mismatched band alignment, explaining the increased interfacial resistance and the decreased PSC conversion efficiency observed in experiments.

On the second theme, I will present recent results on the investigation of the degradation of catalyst materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells. We investigated the surface of the model perovskite oxide catalyst, La0.2Sr0.8CoO3, to determine the factors behind degradation of its catalytic activity toward oxygen reduction reaction. Previously it was shown that the elastic and electrostatic interactions of the dopants, i.e. Sr, within the lattice are key drivers to the detrimental segregation and phase separation of dopants at the surface. Based on this approach, I will show how we can tune the surface charge on perovskite oxides with heterogeneous doping, and improve the chemical and electrochemical stability of the surfaces. Towards this goal, we used a novel combination of in-situ ambient pressure energy X-ray photoelectron and absorption spectroscopy. We found that the doping with cations which are less reducible that Co on B-site of perovskite, such as Ti, Zr or Hf, significantly improves stability, with up to 30x acceleration of the oxygen exchange kinetics after 54 hours in air at 550 oC achieved by Hf addition onto LSC.

Finally, I will show that the surface engineering approach can be also successfully utilized for improvement of the LiFePO4(LPF) cathode materials for Li ion battery applications. Surface chemistry modification of LPF nanoparticles with various transition metals allows to significantly improving rate performance of cathodes as well as its specific capacitance.
