W-onderful C-atalyst: New 2 D tungsten carbide-based materials (NC@WxC/NRGO) are synthesized by controlling the structure and composition of polyoxotungstate/conductive polypyrrole/graphene (PCG) precursor precisely and performing a temperature-programmed reaction. The composite presents splendid performance toward the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in acidic media and is one of the highest HER catalysts among the tungsten carbide-based materials.

Bifunctional activity: Mesoporous spinel oxide spheres that were produced through self-assembly and are bifunctionally active towards catalyzing the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) show promise as air-electrode materials. The high ORR activity of (Ni,Co)3O4 is attributed to the enhanced electrical conductivity of the spinel lattice, whereas the high OER activity of Co3O4 is attributed to relatively weak adsorption energy promoting rapid release of evolved oxygen.
- Nanostructured Silica–Titania Hybrid using Dendritic Fibrous Nanosilica as a Photocatalyst

Fibrous photocatalyst: A new method is developed to fabricate active TiO2 photocatalysts by tuning the morphology of the catalyst support through solution-phase TiO2 deposition on silica. With the nanosilica KCC-1 as a support, a relatively large amount of surface area remains intact because of its open fibrous morphology, even at the highest TiO2 loading. This improves the accessibility of active sites, which increases the catalytic performance of the KCC-1/TiO2 photocatalyst.

From lignin to plastics: Brønsted-acidic zeolites are identified as outstanding catalysts for the synthesis of lignin-derived bisphenols. The zeolites exhibit excellent catalytic activity and guide the selectivity during the condensation reaction with formaldehyde. Furthermore, these sustainable heterogeneous catalysts retain their activity upon calcination, greatly reducing the environmental impact.
