New Online Manuscript Submission System
We are pleased to announce that after over ten years, manuscriptXpress was replaced by a new Manuscript handling system, EditorialManager from ARIES, on February 1.
The links to the new journal sites are available at: chemistryviews.org/submission.
Articles that have been submitted to manuscriptXpress will be processed from there.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to receiving your next excellent manuscript.

Recently Published Articles
- Single-Ion Polymer Electrolyte Membranes Enable Lithium-Ion Batteries with a Broad Operating Temperature Range
Dr. Weiwei Cai, Dr. Yunfeng Zhang, Dr. Jing Li, Dr. Yubao Sun and Dr. Hansong Cheng
Article first published online: 12 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301373
Unity: Guided by mechanistic analyses of lithium-ion conductive processes, we demonstrate the excellent operability of lithium-ion batteries equipped with single ion polymer electrolyte membranes in a wide temperature range (25–80 °C). The performances are comparable to those of the batteries using liquid electrolyte of inorganic lithium salts.
- Host–Guest Nanocomposites of Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes and Ionic Liquids with Controllable Composition
Yuxiao Ding and Prof. Dang Sheng Su
Article first published online: 12 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301226
Being a good host: A series of host–guest nanocomposites containing multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and ionic liquids (ILs) is synthesized, exploiting the volatility of ILs under vacuum conditions. Such nanocomposites can find use in both carbon catalysis and IL catalysis. The nanocatalysts can be easily recycled from reaction systems, offering sustainable methods for practical applications.
- Amphiphilic and Phase-Separable Ionic Liquids for Biomass Processing
Ashley J. Holding, Mikko Heikkilä, Prof. Dr. Ilkka Kilpeläinen and Dr. Alistair W. T. King
Article first published online: 11 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301261
Solving the dissolving: Hydrophobic wood-biopolymer-solvating ionic liquids are developed that are phase separable from aqueous solutions as a means of recycling. These ionic liquids are excellent solvents for cellulose in the form of their DMSO electrolyte solutions but only dissolve lignin as the pure ionic liquids.

Softening CO2: CO2 is used in combination with epoxidized fatty acid esters to synthesize new polyvinyl chloride plasticizers. A life cycle analysis study shows CO2 saving compared with the benchmark diisononyl phthalate; this mostly results from the use of biomass and not from the utilization of CO2.
- Influence of Structural Variations in Push–Pull Zinc Porphyrins on Photovoltaic Performance of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
Dr. Chenyi Yi, Dr. Fabrizio Giordano, Dr. Ngoc-Le Cevey-Ha, Dr. Hoi Nok Tsao, Dr. Shaik M. Zakeeruddin and Prof. Michael Grätzel
Article first published online: 11 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301271
Dying to live: Subtle molecular structural variations in two zinc porphyrin dyes significantly influence the performance of dye-sensitized solar cell devices. By utilizing the dyes in combination with a cobalt-based redox electrolyte, a high power conversion efficiency (PCE) under simulated solar light is achieved. When using spiro-OMeTAD as the hole-transporting material in solid-state solar cells, the highest PCE for such a device until now is observed.
