    Testing the water: Reversible and switchable pH-sensitive superhydrophobic surfaces are prepared by electro-copolymerization of pyrene monomers with fluorinated chains and acid groups. Wetting switchability is achieved by acid–base treatment. The versatile and simple process described here should be easy to implement in a wide range of polymer technologies requiring robust wetting switchability.

  3. CaO-Based CO2 Sorbents Effectively Stabilized by Metal Oxides

    Muhammad Awais Naeem, Dr. Andac Armutlulu, Dr. Qasim Imtiaz and Prof. Dr. Christoph R. Müller

    Version of Record online: 17 OCT 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201700695

    Incorporation of equimolar amounts of Al2O3 and Y2O3 into a CaO matrix in a homogeneous fashion yields CO2 sorbents with high CO2 uptake capacity and improved cyclic stability. The formation of a YAG phase between Al2O3 and Y2O3 enables a higher fraction of CO2-capture-active CaO, since not all Al2O3 reacts with CaO.

  4. Gold Nanoparticles on Polymer-Wrapped Carbon Nanotubes: An Efficient and Selective Catalyst for the Electroreduction of CO2

    Dr. Huei-Ru “Molly” Jhong, Dr. Claire E. Tornow, Dr. Chaerin Kim, Sumit Verma, Dr. Justin L. Oberst, Paul S. Anderson, Prof. Dr. Andrew A. Gewirth, Prof. Dr. Tsuyohiko Fujigaya, Prof. Dr. Naotoshi Nakashima and Prof. Dr. Paul J. A. Kenis

    A golden catalyst: Supporting gold nanoparticles onto polymer-wrapped multiwall carbon nanotubes leads to an active and selective catalyst for the electroreduction of CO2 to CO, while reducing the precious-metal loading requirement. The high activity at low catalyst loading is attributed to a high electrochemically active surface area.
