There’s lots of change this week in the Advanced Materials Top 40, with Michael Sailor’s review “Hybrid Nanoparticles for Detection and Treatment of Cancer” moving up 30 places from last week to take the top spot. A second review with a biomedical theme, “Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles: Synthesis, Biocompatibility and Drug Delivery” by Fangqiong Tang, moves up 16 places into the top 10.

Also of note this week:
- Five of the top 20 papers feature graphene, with no sign of the interest in this material abating.
- The most-cited Advanced Materials paper of all-time, “One-Dimensional Nanostructures: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications“, makes its first appearance in the Top 40 at No. 20.
- Both the cover artwork and the corresponding review article on functional fibers inspired by spider silk by Yongmei Zheng, Lei Jiang, and co-workers feature in the Top 40.
