Abstract

original image

The cover picture is a schematic representation of a microbially catalyzed solid-polymer-electrolyte (SPE) microbial fuel cell (MFC) for the conversion of glucose into hydrogen peroxide, based on an electrocatalytical reaction that involves the two-electron reduction of gaseous oxygen. In their Communication on page 334, Shi-Jie You, Nan-Qi Ren, and co-workers from the Harbin Institute of Technology (PR China) and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) report this new approach to the sustainable synthesis of hydrogen peroxide, which makes efficient and economical use of biomass materials.
