Shells under control: An in situ chemical vapor deposition combined with the electrical explosion of wires (EEW) method has been applied to fabricate core–shell Al-PTFE nanoenergetic materials. The polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) shell prevents nano-Al layers from oxidation and assists in enhancing the reaction kinetics, greatly improving the stability and reactivity of fuels. This synthetic strategy might provide a general approach to prepare other energetic materials (Mg, Si).

Illuminate with alumina: BiOClxBr1−x-loaded (75 wt %) alumina composite films were deposited on a glass container for the fabrication of visible-light-driven photoreactors. These highly stable films showed very good photocatalytic activities (see figure).
- Growth of Hollow Transition Metal (Fe, Co, Ni) Oxide Nanoparticles on Graphene Sheets through Kirkendall Effect as Anodes for High-Performance Lithium-Ion Batteries

Hollow-lujah! A general strategy based on the nanoscale Kirkendall effect is used to grow hollow transition metal (Fe, Co, or Ni) oxide nanoparticles on graphene sheets. When applied as lithium-ion battery anodes, these hollow transition metal oxide-based composites exhibit excellent electrochemical performance, with high reversible capacities and long-term stabilities at a high current density, superior to most transition metal oxides reported to date.
- Interplay of Exciton Coupling and Large-Amplitude Motions in the Vibrational Circular Dichroism Spectrum of Dehydroquinidine
Dr. Valentin P. Nicu, Dr. Sérgio R. Domingos, M. Sc. Benjamin H. Strudwick, Prof. Dr. Albert M. Brouwer and Prof. Dr. Wybren J. Buma

Flexibility unleashed: Experimental and theoretical studies of vibrational circular dichroism spectra of a prototypical organocatalyst reveal their remarkable sensitivity towards structural flexibility. Large-amplitude motions are shown to play a key role in determining band shape and intensity. The underlying reason is found to be that even small contributions of polar bond motion to vibrational coordinates can lead to huge signal enhancements through exciton coupling mechanisms (see figure).

Catalysis at the edge: Large zeolite crystals of ferrierite have been used to study catalyst deactivation in the alkyl isomerisation of oleic and elaidic acid by a combination of micro-spectroscopy methods (see figure). It was found that the markers of catalytic activity were exclusively found near the pore mouths of the larger 10-MR channels of ferrierite at all crystal edges, providing experimental evidence for the concept of pore mouth catalysis.
