      The cover picture shows how light is reflected onto the Chicago Bean's surface, modulating its appearance as a function of the solar radiation and the surroundings. Likewise, the curve-shaped subporphyrazines collect sunlight, giving rise to amazing light-induced phenomena, and their peripheral substitution produces striking effects on their luminescence properties. In their Full Paper on page 330, D. M. Guldi, T. Torres and co-workers describe the physicochemical characterization of subporphyrazines.

    1. Catalytic Applications in the Production of Biodiesel from Vegetable Oils (pages 278–300)

      Arumugam Sivasamy, Kien Yoo Cheah, Paolo Fornasiero, Francis Kemausuor, Sergey Zinoviev and Stanislav Miertus

      Article first published online: 9 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200800253

      Fat Cats: The production of biodiesel from vegetable oils and animal fats through transesterification and cracking is an emerging sector of the modern chemical industry, which, as many others, relies on the use of catalysis. Recent advances in the application of various homogeneous, heterogeneous, and enzymatic catalytic systems to biofuel production are presented in this Review.

    1. Synthesis of Dimethyl Carbonate by Transesterification of Ethylene Carbonate over Activated Dawsonites (pages 301–304)

      Georgiana Stoica, Sònia Abelló and Javier Pérez-Ramírez

      Article first published online: 5 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200800195

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Basic instinct: Basic aluminates derived from the activation of Na- and K-dawsonites are highly active and reusable catalysts for the transesterification of ethylene carbonate and methanol to dimethyl carbonate. The product is obtained in about 65 % yield in 6 h even when the reaction is scaled up 100-fold to a 2 L reactor.

    2. An Ester-Substituted Iridium Complex for Efficient Vacuum-Processed Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (pages 305–308)

      Etienne Baranoff, Stéphane Suarez, Philippe Bugnon, Henk J. Bolink, Cédric Klein, Rosario Scopelliti, Libero Zuppiroli, Michael Grätzel and Mohammad K. Nazeeruddin

      Article first published online: 5 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200800220

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Red OLED: An orange–red-emitting iridium complex (N958) was prepared, and its photophysical and device-based characteristics were investigated. Despite N958 displaying quite poor photophysical properties in solution (acetonitrile), organic light-emitting diode (OLED) devices based on the complex exhibit an efficiency close to 10 %.

    1. Organic Solar Cells with Semitransparent Metal Back Contacts for Power Window Applications (pages 309–313)

      Robert Koeppe, Doris Hoeglinger, Pavel A. Troshin, Rimma N. Lyubovskaya, Vladimir F. Razumov and Niyazi Serdar Sariciftci

      Article first published online: 19 MAR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200900029

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A window to the world: Metal-organic complexes such as zinc-phthalocyanines and -naphthalocyanines show broad transmission windows in the visible spectral range and can be used together with fullerenes in semitransparent organic solar cells. By achieving a high transmission of visible light through silver electrodes, this property is exploited to construct organic solar cells that one can see through.

    2. Relaxation of Photogenerated Carriers in P3HT:PCBM Organic Blends (pages 314–320)

      Thomas Moehl, Vladimir G. Kytin, Juan Bisquert, Marinus Kunst, Henk J. Bolink and Germà Garcia-Belmonte

      Article first published online: 3 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200900002

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Relaxing in the sunlight. Long time-transient decays of photogenerated carriers in P3HT:PCBM blends for organic solar cells are interpreted in terms of the relaxation of hole carriers in a broad density of states.

    3. A Ru-Hbpp-Based Water-Oxidation Catalyst Anchored on Rutile TiO2 (pages 321–329)

      Laia Francàs, Xavier Sala, Jordi Benet-Buchholz, Lluís Escriche and Antoni Llobet

      Article first published online: 23 MAR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200800191

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In support of a split: A water oxidation catalyst based on ruthenium bis-(2-pyridyl)pyrazole anchored on rutile TiO2 was prepared. The performance of this new material with regard to its capacity to catalytically oxidize water to molecular oxygen in a heterogeneous phase was evaluated.

    4. Physicochemical Characterization of Subporphyrazines—Lower Subphthalocyanine Homologues (pages 330–335)

      G. M. Aminur Rahman, Daniela Lüders, M. Salomé Rodríguez-Morgade, Esmeralda Caballero, Tomás Torres and Dirk M. Guldi

      Article first published online: 29 DEC 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200800182

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The periphery is central: The luminescent properties of boron(III) subporphyrazines are strongly influenced by their peripheral functionalization. These photoactive materials generate long-lived triplet excited states that mediate the sensitized production of singlet oxygen. Furthermore, their ability to behave either as oxidizing or reducing chromophores is promising for their application in molecular photovoltaics.

    5. The Effects of Starting Materials in the Synthesis of (Ga1−xZnx)(N1−xOx) Solid Solution on Its Photocatalytic Activity for Overall Water Splitting under Visible Light (pages 336–343)

      Takashi Hisatomi, Kazuhiko Maeda, Daling Lu and Kazunari Domen

      Article first published online: 23 DEC 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200800156

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      It all depends on the ingredients: The physicochemical properties of (Ga1−xZnx)(N1−xOx), including its particle size, are dependent on the particle size of the ZnO precursor. The relationship between the physicochemical properties and photocatalytic performance of (Ga1−xZnx)(N1−xOx) for overall water splitting under visible light was investigated to identify suitable starting materials of the catalyst.

    6. Electron Transfer Dynamics in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Utilizing Oligothienylvinylene Derivates as Organic Sensitizers (pages 344–349)

      John N. Clifford, Amparo Forneli, Leticia López-Arroyo, Rubén Caballero, Pilar de la Cruz, Fernando Langa and Emilio Palomares

      Article first published online: 31 MAR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.200900043

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Many dyes make light work: Molecular photovoltaic devices based on nanocrystalline TiO2 are prepared by using two dye sensitizers (see figure). Their relative efficiencies are greatly dependent on the molecular structures of the dyes.
