    Mixed transition-metal oxides (MTMOs), including stannates, ferrites, cobaltates, and nickelates, have attracted increasing attention in the application of high performance lithium-ion batteries. The rational design, energy storage mechanism and the future trends and prospects of novel MTMO are discussed in detail. It is believed that MTMOs with higher reversible capacity, better structural stability, and high electronic conductivity are some of the most promising candidates for anodes for lithium ion batteries.

  2. Triboelectric Nanogenerator for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment via a Self-Powered Electrochemical Process

    Shuwen Chen, Ning Wang, Long Ma, Tao Li, Magnus Willander, Yang Jie, Xia Cao and Zhong Lin Wang

    Article first published online: 8 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201501778

    A sustainable wastewater treatment system based on a triboelectric nanogenerator is demonstrated via a self-powered electrochemical process. The system harvests kinetic energy from wastewater to produce electrical power for treating wastewater. High removal efficiency of rhodamine B and copper ions and high energy utilization are achieved. The system can also be used for electroplating with better performance.

  3. Mesoporous MoS2 as a Transition Metal Dichalcogenide Exhibiting Pseudocapacitive Li and Na-Ion Charge Storage

    John B. Cook, Hyung-Seok Kim, Yan Yan, Jesse S. Ko, Shauna Robbennolt, Bruce Dunn and Sarah H. Tolbert

    Article first published online: 8 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201501937

    Mesoporous MoS2 is synthesized via thermal sulfurization of block copolymer templated mesoporous MoO2. These nanoporous films show high levels of pseudocapcitance using both Li+ and Na+. When cycled with Li+, the material exhibits a reversible charge storage capacity of 140 mAh g−1 in only 20 s, and can be cycled more than 10 000 times.

  4. Carbon Nanodot Surface Modifications Initiate Highly Efficient, Stable Catalysts for Both Oxygen Evolution and Reduction Reactions

    Juan Liu, Shunyan Zhao, Chuanxi Li, Manman Yang, Yanmei Yang, Yang Liu, Yeshayahu Lifshitz, Shuit-Tong Lee and Zhenhui Kang

    Article first published online: 8 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201502039

    Metal-free carbon nanodots surface-modified with either phosphorus or amidogen can respectively achieve superior electrocatalytic activity approaching and even exceeding that of the benchmark Pt/C and IrO2 /C catalysts for oxygen reduction reactions (ORR) and oxygen evolution reactions (OER). Attaching Au nanoparticles on these catalysts will further enhance their electrocatalytic activities under visible light.

  5. New Processable Phenanthridinone-Based Polymers for Organic Solar Cell Applications

    Article first published online: 8 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201502094

    New phenanthridinone-based polymers are designed and synthesized by direct (hetero)arylation polymerization for photo­voltaic applications. Bulk-hetero­junction solar cells prepared in air and a random terpolymer (P3) blended with PC71BM in o-dichlorobenzene lead to a power conversion efficiency (PCE) up to 6.7%. When the same polymer is processed with PC61BM in o-xylene with blade-coating in a chlorine-free system, a PCE of 4.7% is observed.
