MOFs to the rescue: The current fermentative production of biomass-derived lactic acid requires a tedious, non-sustainable, multi-step separation process. The adsorption and desorption of lactic acid on high-affinity porous crystalline metal–organic frameworks opens a direct and gypsum-waste-free alternative recovery route.

Connecting the dots: The electron photodetachment from iodide anions, the hydrogen transfer from thiols to carbon dioxide radical anions, and the oxidation of thiols by iodine define a robust and transition-metal-free photocatalytic method for the reduction of carbon dioxide to formic acid by using thiols and hydrogen sulfide at atmospheric pressure in aqueous and acetonitrile solution.

Protected perovskites: Improved perovskite film stability in ambient air and solar cell power conversion efficiency (PCE) are achieved by covering an aged perovskite film with a thin Al2O3 layer prepared by atomic layer deposition (ALD) at room temperature (RT). High-resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is used to understand the effect of the ALD precursors on the perovskite film properties.
