- Architecture of Conjugated Donor–Acceptor (D–A)-Type Polymer Films with Cross-Linked Structures
Jin Huang, Bangan Peng, Weina Wang, Hanxu Ji, Linling Li, Kai Xi, Wenyong Lai, Xinwen Zhang and Xudong Jia
Article first published online: 5 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201503379
A series of new donor–acceptor-type semiconducting conjugated polymers with hydrogen bonding cross-linked structure is reported. They are a potential candidate as multifunctional materials applied in the field of optoelectronic devices because of their excellent electronic transmission, photoluminescence, and electroluminescent properties.

Hierarchical zeolites with varied framework types and compositions are fabricated, among which 1D fibrous zeolite structures and hierarchical zeolite-coated bulk zeolite structures are reported for the first time. Furthermore, the advantages of nonsurfactant polymers over conventional surfactant-based templates in fabricating hierarchical zeolites are systematically demonstrated.
- Fine Tuned Nanolayered Metal/Metal Oxide Electrode for Semitransparent Colloidal Quantum Dot Solar Cells
Xiaoliang Zhang, Carl Hägglund, Malin B. Johansson, Kári Sveinbjörnsson and Erik M. J. Johansson
Article first published online: 5 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201504038
A semitransparent nanolayered metal/metal oxide electrode is presented for a semitransparent PbS colloidal quantum dot solar cell to increase the light transmission and power conversion efficiency. The solar cell shows an efficiency of 5.4% and average visible transmittance of 24.1%, increased by 28.6% and 59.6%, respectively, compared to the device with a standard Au film as the electrode.
- Template-Based Engineering of Carbon-Doped Co3O4 Hollow Nanofibers as Anode Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries
Chunshuang Yan, Gang Chen, Xin Zhou, Jingxue Sun and Chade Lv
Article first published online: 5 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201504695
Carbon-doped Co3O4 hollow nanofibers are synthesized, displaying excellent Li+ ion storage properties including high specific capacity, long-term cycling stability, and outstanding rate capacity. Density functional theory calculations reveal a larger delocalization of the band structure as being responsible for the enhanced conductivity observed.
- Light and Strong SiC Networks
Claudio Ferraro, Esther Garcia-Tuñon, Victoria G. Rocha, Suelen Barg, Maria Dolores Fariñas, Tomas E. Gomez Alvarez-Arenas, Giorgio Sernicola, Finn Giuliani and Eduardo Saiz
Article first published online: 5 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201504051
Ultralight SiC networks are assembled through the directional freezing of microfiber suspensions. The networks are stable at high temperature and have a unique hierarchical architecture that promotes high specific strengths and stiffness. They are thermally insulating but electrically conductive. The approach opens new opportunities for the fabrication of ultralight structures with unique mechanical and functional properties in practical dimensions.
