- Molecular Order in Buried Layers of TbPc2 Single-Molecule Magnets Detected by Torque Magnetometry
Mauro Perfetti, Michele Serri, Lorenzo Poggini, Matteo Mannini, Donella Rovai, Philippe Sainctavit, Sandrine Heutz and Roberta Sessoli

Cantilever torque magnetometry is used to elucidate the orientation of magnetic molecules in thin films. The technique allows depth-resolved investigations by intercalating a layer of anisotropic magnetic molecules in a film of its isotropic analogues. The proof-of-concept is here demonstrated with the single-molecule magnet TbPc2 evidencing also an exceptional long range templating effect on substrates coated by the organic molecule perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic dianhydride.
- Ultrafast Nanocrystalline-TiO2(B)/Carbon Nanotube Hyperdispersion Prepared via Combined Ultracentrifugation and Hydrothermal Treatments for Hybrid Supercapacitors

Anisotropically-grown (b-axis short) single-nano TiO2(B), uniformly hyper-dispersed on the surface of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT), was successfully synthesized via an in situ ultracentrifugation (UC) process coupled with a follow-up hydrothermal treatment. The uc-TiO2(B)/MWCNT composite materials enable ultrafast Li+ intercalation especially along the b-axis, resulting in a capacity of 235 mAh g–1 per TiO2(B) even at 300C (1C = 335 mA g–1).
- Mesoporous Titanium Nitride-Enabled Highly Stable Lithium-Sulfur Batteries
Zhiming Cui, Chenxi Zu, Weidong Zhou, Arumugam Manthiram and John B. Goodenough

The TiN-S composite cathode exhibits superior performance because of higher electrical conductivity and the capture of the soluble intermediate species of the electrode reactions by 2–5 nm mesopores and strong N–S surface bonding.
- Bioinspired 1D Superparamagnetic Magnetite Arrays with Magnetic Field Perception
Xiangyu Jiang, Jiangang Feng, Lei Huang, Yuchen Wu, Bin Su, Wensheng Yang, Liqiang Mai and Lei Jiang
Version of Record online: 27 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201601609
Superparamagnetic magnetite nanoparticles can be assembled into 1D arrays by a capillary-bridge mediate assembly approach, inspired by the Earth's magnetic field perception in nature. These 1D arrays possess strict alignment, precise position and high aspect ratio, yielding highly anisotropic magnetization characteristic.
- Efficient All-Vacuum Deposited Perovskite Solar Cells by Controlling Reagent Partial Pressure in High Vacuum
Sheng-Yi Hsiao, Hong-Lin Lin, Wei-Hung Lee, Wei-Lun Tsai, Kai-Ming Chiang, Wei-Yu Liao, Chen-Zheng Ren-Wu, Chien-Yu Chen and Hao-Wu Lin
Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201601505
All-vacuum deposited perovskite solar cells produced by controlling reagent partial pressure in high vacuum with newly developed multi-layer electron and hole transporting structures show outstanding power conversion efficiency of 17.6% and smooth, pinhole-free, micrometer-sized perovskite crystal grains.
