  1. Palladium and Gold Nanotubes as Oxygen Reduction Reaction and Alcohol Oxidation Reaction Catalysts in Base

    Shaun M. Alia, Kathlynne Duong, Toby Liu, Kurt Jensen and Prof. Yushan Yan

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201400129

    Pd ORR Au: Palladium nanotubes (PdNTs) and gold nanotubes (AuNTs) are studied as oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and alcohol oxidation reaction catalysts in base. PdNTs and AuNTs produce ORR area activities that are 2.9 and 2.3 times greater than those produced by Pd/C and Au/C, respectively. The PdNTs further show improved methanol, ethanol, and ethylene glycol oxidation activity in comparison to nanoparticle catalysts.

  2. Generation of Basic Centers in High-Silica Zeolites and their Application in Gas-Phase Upgrading of Bio-Oil

    Tobias C. Keller, Dr. Elodie G. Rodrigues and Prof. Dr. Javier Pérez-Ramírez

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301382

    Creating new basic sites: Through activation treatments in alkaline media, basic sites with high activity, stability, and selectivity are generated in high-silica FAU, BEA, and MFI zeolites, which enable the efficient deoxygenation of pyrolysis oil by condensation reactions. Intermediate bio-oil upgrading is key for the sustainable and profitable production of advanced biofuels.

  3. Combination of Carbon Nitride and Carbon Nanotubes: Synergistic Catalysts for Energy Conversion

    Yutong Gong, Jing Wang, Zhongzhe Wei, Pengfei Zhang, Haoran Li and Yong Wang

    Article first published online: 22 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402078

    The start of a beautiful friendship: A series of graphitic carbon nitride/carbon nanotubes (g-C3N4/CNTs) composites are fabricated. They demonstrated different practical applications with different weight ratios of the components, that is, they showed synergistic effects in optoelectronic conversion when g-C3N4 was the main ingredient and in oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) when CNTs dominated the composites. The individual components show synergistic effects in both aspects.

  4. Molybdenum Carbide as a Highly Selective Deoxygenation Catalyst for Converting Furfural to 2-Methylfuran

    Ke Xiong, Dr. Wen-Sheng Lee, Prof. Aditya Bhan and Prof. Jingguang G. Chen

    Article first published online: 22 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402033

    Your MoMo so cat, she splits furfural: Molybdenum carbide (Mo2C) is identified as a highly selective deoxygenation catalyst for making 2-methylfuran from furfural through combination of density functional theory (DFT) calculations, surface science and flow reactor experiments. These results indicate the promising application of Mo2C in upgrading biomass-derived oxygenates including furanics and aromatics.

  5. 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).
