How to avoid dissociation: Contrary to acetylene dication delocalizing its positive charges over the molecule (left), the diiodoacetylene tetracation (right) survives after the removal of four electrons by localizing its positive charges on the terminal iodine atoms, ensuring minimum Coulomb repulsion between adjacent atoms as well as maximum charge-induced attractive dipole interactions between iodine and carbon (see picture).
- BiVO4-TiO2 Composite Photocatalysts for Dye Degradation Formed Using the SILAR Method
Gylen Odling and Prof. Neil Robertson
Version of Record online: 29 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600443
The SILAR technique (sequential ionic layer adsorption reaction) is applied to prepare a heterojunction photocatalyst based on TiO2–BiVO4 for water purification. The photocatalyst is formed as a nanocrystalline film, ideal for separation and re-use. The authors employ a ZrO2-BiVO4 control to prove the heterojunction charge separation effect.
- A Molecular-Level Study of Metamorphosis and Strengthening of Gels by Spontaneous Polymorphic Transitions
Baiju P. Krishnan and Prof. Dr. Kana M. Sureshan
Version of Record online: 28 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600590
Making polymorphism transparent: A polymorphic transition in gels leads to changes in morphology and properties of gels. The first molecular-level study of a spontaneous polymorphic transition from a kinetic polymorph to a stable polymorph is reported (see figure). The dynamic change in hydrogen-bonding pattern between gelator molecules during the polymorphic transition could be mapped by using various time-dependent spectroscopic techniques.
