  1. Graphene-Coated ZnO and SiO2 as Supports for CoO Nanoparticles with Enhanced Reducibility

    Wen Luo and Dr. Spyridon Zafeiratos

    Version of Record online: 27 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600499

    From bare to covered: The redox properties of Co supported on bare and graphene-covered oxide substrates are studied. The graphene layer limits the oxidation of Co metal and facilitates reduction of CoO (see figure). The substrate beneath graphene does not have a notable effect on the redox processes. Thus, graphene coating can modify the metal–support interaction and improve the reducibility of Co.

  2. Combined Constant-Force and Constant-Velocity Single-Molecule Force Spectroscopy of the Conrotatory Ring Opening Reaction of Benzocyclobutene

    Tatiana B. Kouznetsova, Dr. Junpeng Wang and Prof. Stephen L. Craig

    Version of Record online: 27 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600463

    Kinetics extracted from force clamp and constant-velocity single-molecule force spectroscopy experiments provide a consistent picture of the rate of a conrotatory ring opening reaction as a function of applied force.

  3. Limits in Proton Nuclear Singlet-State Lifetimes Measured with para-Hydrogen-Induced Polarization

    Yuning Zhang, Xueyou Duan, Dr. Pei Che Soon, Dr. Vladimír Sychrovský, Prof. James W. Canary and Prof. Alexej Jerschow

    Version of Record online: 27 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600663

    Single for a lifetime: Polarization and the singlet state are preserved over two controlled chemical steps to create long-lived proton singlet states. Owing to the high symmetry, the singlet-state readout requires either a chemical desymmetrization or a long and repeated spin lock.

  4. Intramolecular Charge Transfer and Solvation of Photoactive Molecules with Conjugated Push-Pull Structures

    Huaning Zhu, Xian Wang, Renjun Ma, Zhouran Kuang, Qianjin Guo and Andong Xia
