  1. Photoinduced Charge Separation Catalyzed by Manganese Oxides onto a Y-Shaped Branching Acceptor Efficiently Preventing Charge Recombination

    Dr. Kentaro Yamamoto and Prof. Dr. Kazuo Takatsuka

    Version of Record online: 20 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201601237

    Why not get back together? Photoinduced charge separation dynamics mediated by Mn oxides, electron-wavepackets, and protons transfer in a coupled manner through mutually different pathways to different sites of a Y-shaped branched acceptor. This molecular shape and the presence of a doped Ca atom prevent the electron–proton pair created returning to the Mn oxide.

  2. Competition between Cation-Solvent and Cation-Anion Interactions in Imidazolium Ionic Liquids with Polar Aprotic Solvents

    Bogdan A. MAREKHA, Oleg N. Kalugin, Marc Bria, Toshiyuki Takamuku, Slobodan Gadžurić and Abdenacer Idrissi

    Accepted manuscript online: 20 JAN 2017 05:30AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201601445

  3. Tuning the Electron-Transport and Electron-Accepting Abilities of Dyes through Introduction of Different π-Conjugated Bridges and Acceptors for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    Prof. Yuanzuo Li, Dr. Chaofan Sun, Prof. Peng Song, Prof. Fengcai Ma and Prof. Yanhui Yang

    Version of Record online: 19 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201601101

    Meaningful prediction: A series of dyes containing thiophene and thieno[3,2-b]thiophene units as π-spacers and six different types of acceptor groups have been designed. The photoelectrical properties of the dyes, considering their potential application in dye-sensitized solar cells, were investigated using DFT/TDDFT methods. The dye incorporating a TCA acceptor group was calculated to exhibit the largest open-circuit voltage.

  4. Ultrafast Spin Crossover in [FeII(bpy)3]2+: Revealing Two Competing Mechanisms by Extreme Ultraviolet Photoemission Spectroscopy

    Alexandre Moguilevski, Martin Wilke, Gilbert Grell, Dr. Sergey I. Bokarev, Prof. Saadullah G. Aziz, Nicholas Engel, Azhr A. Raheem, Prof. Oliver Kühn, Dr. Igor Yu. Kiyan and Prof. Emad F. Aziz

    Following the photoexcitation event, the aqueous iron coordination complex [FeII(bpy)3]2+ undergoes a low-to-high spin transition. Ultrafast XUV (extreme ultraviolet) photoemission spectroscopy enables tracking both the direct and the sequential pathways of this process.

  5. Laser Alloying of Co Nanorods and Al Nanoparticles in a Liquid
