Ultrasonics Sonochemistry, 2017, 34: 13-18.(The polyester fiber containing Ag nanoparticles was prepared through the chemical reduction under ultrasound irradiation. Influences of reduction reagents on the morphological properties of Ag nanoparticles@polyester fiber were studied.)

(A unique intercluster compound comprising a Ag41 cage encapsulating a divacant [α-SiW10O37]10- anion and a complete [β-SiW12O40]4- anion as a counteranion were reported. Two electro-redox centers associated with the inner and outer POM anions show interesting electrochemical behaviours, because the stable Ag41 cage acts as an electron transfer mediator.)

(An encapsulating organic anion—squarate dianion—has been observed. Two C4O42- anions arranged in a staggered sandwich type arrangement are confined in the Ag24 cage. The incorporation of squarate anions into the silver alkynyl system leads to the red shift of absorption of the cluster in comparison to silver squarate.)
