- Fractionation of Hemp Hurds by Organosolv Pretreatment and its Effect on Production of Lignin and Sugars
Stefano Gandolfi, Dr. Gianluca Ottolina, Dr. Roberto Consonni, Dr. Sergio Riva and Dr. Ilabahen Patel
Article first published online: 17 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301396
Stupefyingly hemp: Clean fractionation of lignocellulosic biomass is important for an advanced integrated biorefinery, which allows effective separation of constitutive polymer components (cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin) in a single-step process. The proposed organosolv process is suitable for the high-yield production of high-quality lignin and sugars (xylose and glucose from hemicellulose and cellulose, respectively).
- Gasoline from Biomass through Refinery-Friendly Carbohydrate-Based Bio-Oil Produced by Ketalization

Refinery refinement: The conversion of biomass into fuel by using a regular refinery installation can largely mitigate CO2 emissions. This goal is achieved by a two-step process: biomass is transformed into a carbohydrate-based bio-oil produced by hydrolysis–ketalization reactions, then a gasoline with a high octane number is produced by catalytic upgrading.
- Chemically Stable Perovskites as Cathode Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells: La-Doped Ba0.5Sr0.5Co0.8Fe0.2O3−δ
Junyoung Kim, Sihyuk Choi, Areum Jun, Prof. Hu Young Jeong, Prof. Jeeyoung Shin and Prof. Guntae Kim
Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301401
A-site for sore eyes: Although Ba0.5Sr0.5Co0.8Fe0.2O3−δ (BSCF) has won tremendous attention as a cathode material for solid oxide fuel cells, wide application of BSCF is impeded by phase instabilities under operating conditions. A chemically stable SOFC cathode material is reported based on La-doping into the A-site of BSCF and provides excellent structural stability and high oxygen reduction activity at intermediate temperature operation.
- Photocatalysis with Chromium-Doped TiO2: Bulk and Surface Doping

It’s classified! The photocatalytic properties of TiO2 modified by chromium depend strongly on the preparation method. To clarify this problem, two types of modified titania are discussed: one with CrIII doped in the bulk and one with CrOOH clusters on the TiO2 surface (see picture). Both series show visible-light-driven photo-oxidation activity. However, surface modification appears to be a more efficient strategy.
- Two-Electron Carbon Dioxide Reduction Catalyzed by Rhenium(I) Bis(imino)acenaphthene Carbonyl Complexes
Engelbert Portenkirchner, Elham Kianfar, Prof. Dr. Niyazi Serdar Sariciftci and Prof. Dr. Günther Knör
Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301116
Multielectron transfer catalysis: A series of deeply colored rhenium(I) carbonyl complexes with bis(imino)acenaphthene ligands (i.e., [Re(BIAN)(CO)3]Cl) is successfully tested as novel homogeneous catalysts for the two-electron reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbon monoxide (CO). Variation of the ligand substitution pattern in proximity to the metal center has a significant influence on the catalytic performance of these systems.
