    Here, a breakthrough strategy is demonstrated for design of hydrogenated air stabilized hybrid material by encapsulating La(Ni0.95Fe0.05)5 inside reduced graphene oxide-ethyl cellulose. This novel hybrid material does not ignite upon exposure to air. The development of the proposed hybrid material could be the ultimate choice for air-stable and safe storage for fuel cell/IC engine-based vehicles.

  2. A Triphasic Modulated Hydrothermal Approach for the Synthesis of Multivariate Metal–Organic Frameworks with Hydrophobic Moieties for Highly Efficient Moisture-Resistant CO2 Capture

    A triphasic modulated hydrothermal approach is reported to prepare multivariate (MTV) UiO-66(Zr) metal–organic frameworks with hydrophobic moieties for wet CO2 capture. The MTV-UiO-66(Zr)-NH2-F4-0.53 demonstrates high CO2 capture performance under both dry and wet conditions, boosting breakthrough dynamics with less cross-column pressure drop (ΔP ≈ 0 bar) and 2.7 times enhanced mass transfer coefficient (k = 0.1235 s−1).

  3. Recent Advances in Electrochromic Smart Fenestration

    Guofa Cai, Alice Lee-Sie Eh, Lin Ji and Pooi See Lee

    Version of Record online: 6 OCT 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adsu.201700074

    Nanostructured electrochromic materials, the fabrication of large scale smart windows, rational design of multifunctional smart chromogenic devices, and their performance are reviewed. Moreover, a concept of energy-efficient multifunctional smart windows is addressed in which sustainable energy can be stored in the smart windows during daytime and can be discharged to power other electronic devices at night.

  4. FeNi2Se4–Reduced Graphene Oxide Nanocomposite: Enhancing Bifunctional Electrocatalytic Activity for Oxygen Evolution and Reduction through Synergistic Effects

    Siddesh Umapathi, Jahangir Masud, Abdurazag T. Swesi and Manashi Nath

    Version of Record online: 22 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adsu.201700086

    This article describes the electrocatalytic activity of FeNi2Se4–NrGO composite for oxygen evolution reaction and oxygen reduction reaction in alkaline medium and shows how synergistic chemical effect can enhance electrocatalytic activity. The synthesized catalyst exhibits excellent oxygen evolution activity requiring only 170 mV overpotential to achieve current density of 10 mA cm−2. It also shows excellent stability for extended period of times in alkaline medium.

  5. A Review of Inactive Materials and Components of Flexible Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Evan Foreman, Waleed Zakri, Mohammad Hossein Sanatimoghaddam, Ali Modjtahedi, Saurabh Pathak, Ali Ghorbani Kashkooli, Nicholas G. Garafolo and Siamak Farhad

    Inactive components of a flexible lithium ion battery (LIB) consist of the components that do not directly contribute to energy storage. However, they play a significant role in determination of the battery energy and power density, cycle life, cost, and degree of flexibility. Inactive components of a LIB are electrode binder and conductive materials, electrolyte, current collectors, casing, and separator.
