In reduced circumstances: Readily recoverable and reusable organic semiconducting Cu- and AgTCNQ (TCNQ=7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) microstructures decorated with Pt and Pd nanoparticles have been applied to the removal of CrVI ions from aqueous solutions at room temperature using thiosulfate as reductant (see figure). The semiconductor–metal nanoparticle combination is critical to the catalyst performance: the best-performing material is CuTCNQ/Pt.
