  1. Triple-Conducting Layered Perovskites as Cathode Materials for Proton-Conducting Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    Junyoung Kim, Sivaprakash Sengodan, Goeun Kwon, Dong Ding, Jeeyoung Shin, Meilin Liu and Guntae Kim

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402351

    Triple play: Proton-conducting solid oxide fuel cells (H+-SOFCs) have received a great deal of attention for intermediate-temperature SOFCs. However, the performance of the H+-SOFCs is limited by the cathode material. Triple-conducting oxide cathodes could enhance the electrochemical performance by extending the electrochemically active site to the entire surface of cathode.

  2. Thiocyanate-Free Ruthenium(II) Sensitizers for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Based on the Cobalt Redox Couple

    Dr. Kuan-Lin Wu, Dr. John N. Clifford, Sheng-Wei Wang, Dr. Yella Aswani, Prof. Emilio Palomares, Maria Grazia Lobello, Edoardo Mosconi, Prof. Filippo De Angelis, Wan-Ping Ku, Prof. Yun Chi, Dr. Mohammad K. Nazeeruddin and Prof. Michael Grätzel

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402030

    Co-ping with being sensitive: Two thiocyanate-free ruthenium(II) sensitizers, TFRS-41 and TFRS-42 with distinctive dialkoxyphenyl thienyl substituents are tested for potential applications in dye-sensitized solar cells with a [Co(bpy)3]2+/3+-based (bpy=2,2′-bipyridine) electrolyte. Through proper control of peripheral substituents good cell performance characteristics are recorded for sensitizer TFRS-42.

  3. Engineering the Electrochemical Capacitive Properties of Graphene Sheets in Ionic-Liquid Electrolytes by Correct Selection of Anions

    Minjie Shi, Prof. Shengzhong Kou and Prof. Xingbin Yan

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402275

    What a way to behave! The electrochemical behavior of graphene sheets (GSs) in a series of ionic liquids (ILs) with the same cation and different anions is systematically studied. Viscosity, ion size, and molecular weight of the ILs all affect the electrochemical characteristics of GSs.

  4. Sonochemistry: What Potential for Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass into Platform Chemicals?

    Dr. Gregory Chatel, Dr. Karine De Oliveira Vigier and Dr. François Jérôme

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402289

    Blowing up wood speedily: This Review focuses on the use of ultrasound to produce chemicals from lignocellulosic biomass. The potential of sonochemistry is high, but the technology is mainly used for production of low-value chemicals such as biodiesel or as simple method for pretreatment or extraction. Herein, we show that the access to added-value chemicals can be easily and sometimes solely obtained by the use of ultrasound.

  5. Photoactive Nanocrystals by Low-Temperature Welding of Copper Sulfide Nanoparticles and Indium Sulfide Nanosheets

    Hui Min Lim, Jia Yi Tan, Dr. Sudip K. Batabyal, Dr. Shlomo Magdassi, Dr. Subodh G. Mhaisalkar and Dr. Lydia H. Wong

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402333

    Newly welds: Coalescence between oppositely charged and structurally dissimilar precursor nanoparticles is driven by room-temperature stirring. CuIn5S8 nanocrystals are formed when positively charged copper sulfide (CuS) nanoparticles (stabilized by a polyelectrolyte: poly(diallydimethylammonium chloride); PDAC) are mixed with negatively charged indium sulfide nanoparticles (In2S3; without any polymeric stabilizer) at room temperature. CuIn5S8 is a good precursor material for solution-processed CuInSSe photovoltaics devices.
