Recently we have focused on the architecture engineering of inorganic nanomaterials for their applications to fuel cell electrocatalysis, lithium ion battery, and photocatalysis. We present a synthesis of highly durable and active electrocatalysts based on ordered fct-PtFe nanoparticles for oxygen reduction reaction electrocatalysts for fuel cells.1 We report on the design and synthesis of highly active and stable Co-N4(O) moiety incorporated in nitrogen-doped graphene (Co1-NG(O)) that exhibits a record-high kinetic current density and mass activity with unprecedented stability (>110 h) for electrochemical hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production.2 We report on the design and synthesis of highly active TiO2 photocatalysts incorporated with site-specific single copper atoms (Cu/TiO2) that exhibit reversible and cooperative photoactivation process, and enhancement of photocatalytic hydrogen generation activity.3 We synthesized multigrain nanocrystals consisting of Co3O4 nanocube cores and Mn3O4 shells.4 At the sharp edges of the Co3O4 nanocubes, we observed that tilt boundaries of the Mn3O4 grains exist in the form of disclinations, and we obtained a correlation between the defects and the resulting electrocatalytic behavior for the oxygen reduction reaction. We reported on the design and synthesis of highly stable, photoluminescent, and catalytically active suprastructures of (CdSe)13 nanoclusters.5 We introduced electromechanical cardioplasty using an epicardial mesh made of electrically conductive and elastic Ag/Au nanowire-rubber composite material to resemble the innate cardiac tissue and confer cardiac conduction system function.6 We fabricated highly conductive and elastic nanomembrane for skin electronics.7 s

[ML1]As the paper will require re-review, I have done a limited edit at this time. The paper is being considered as a Report, with a limit of 2500 words, 3-4 figures depending on size (in your case 3 figures since they are big and with long captions), and 30 main text references.
The referees have suggested moving figure 4 to the Supplementary materials and that seems a good idea to us.
