- Enhanced Optical Property with Tunable Band Gap of Cross-linked PEDOT Copolymers via Oxidative Chemical Vapor Deposition
Sunghwan Lee and Karen K. Gleason
Article first published online: 20 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201402924
Band gap-tuned PEDOT copolymers are successfully demonstrated using oCVD with the incorporation of cross-linking monomers of anthracene or biphenyl. oCVD offers single-step synthesis, deposition and doping of copolymers. oCVD copolymers show significantly improved visible-regime transparency compared to homopolymer PEDOT, which is promising for many organic optoelectronic devices that require high optical transmittance with electrical conductivity.
- Blood Ties: Co3O4 Decorated Blood Derived Carbon as a Superior Bifunctional Electrocatalyst
Chao Zhang, Markus Antonietti and Tim-Patrick Fellinger
Article first published online: 18 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201402770
A simple, versatile and cheap synthetic route is developed for the preparation of Co3O4 decorated blood powder derived foam-like heteroatom doped porous carbon (BDHC). The hybrid performs well as an advanced bifunctional non-precious metal electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) in the alkaline medium.
- Multi-Site Functionalization of Protein Scaffolds for Bimetallic Nanoparticle Templating
Kelly N. L. Huggins, Alia P. Schoen, Manickam Adhimoolam Arunagirinathan and Sarah C. Heilshorn
Article first published online: 18 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201402049
A unique noncovalent biotemplating method is used to localize multiple inorganic species at specific nucleation sites on a single clathrin protein template. The data illustrate that this templating strategy facilitates the synthesis of two types of composite nanostructures based on the location of the nucleation sites: silver–gold mixed bimetallic and silver–gold core–shell nanostructures.

Article first published online: 15 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201470260
On page 6105, J.-Q. Huang, Q. Zhang, and co-workers discuss a hierarchical free-standing carbon nanotube (CNT)/sulfur paper electrode with short CNTs as short-range electrical conductive framework for sulfur accommodation and super long CNTs as both long-range conductive networks and intercrossed mechanical scaffolds. Such rational design of flexible electrode offers the possibility to efficient use of active materials at practical loading.
