  1. Aqueous Modification of Nano- and Microfibrillar Cellulose with a Click Synthon

    Hubert Hettegger, Marco Beaumont, Prof. Dr. Antje Potthast and Prof. Dr. Thomas Rosenau

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501358

    Wetten das: A mild and fast azido-functionalization protocol for different never-dried celluloses in water under room temperature conditions is highlighted. As a representative example for subsequent click chemical derivatization, a Rhodamine B derivative is used. This green method is shown to be independent of the never-dried cellulose substrate, and a variety of different compounds could be introduced for the development of novel, functionalized, green, and renewable cellulose-based materials.

  2. Eco-friendly Energy Storage System: Seawater and Ionic Liquid Electrolyte

    Prof. Jae-Kwang Kim, Franziska Mueller, Hyojin Kim, Dr. Sangsik Jeong, Jeong-Sun Park, Prof. Stefano Passerini and Prof. Youngsik Kim

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501328

    Clean, green, ionic machine: An eco-friendly energy storage system using seawater and an ionic liquid electrolyte is demonstrated for the first time. The ionic liquid electrolyte enables stable cycling behavior of the Sn-C anode and avoids the formation of insoluble decomposition products at the solid/liquid electrolyte interface. These enhanced performances render the green seawater rechargeable cell a promising candidate for large-scale energy storage systems.

  3. AuPt Alloy on TiO2: A Selective and Durable Catalyst for L-Sorbose Oxidation to 2-Keto-Gulonic Acid

    Dr. Carine E. Chan-Thaw, Dr. Lidia E. Chinchilla, Sebastian Campisi, Prof. Gianluigi A. Botton, Prof. Laura Prati, Dr. Nikolaos Dimitratos and Dr. Alberto Villa

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501202

    Get your vitamin C: Alloying Pt and Au to yield AuPt nanoparticles results in high selectivity in the selective oxidation of L-sorbose to 2-keto-gulonic acid, a valuable precursor for the production of vitamin C. This compares well with supported monometallic Pt nanoparticles. The acidity/basicity of the support used plays an important role for the selectivity. The stability of the alloyed AuPt nanoparticles is considerably improved as metal leaching is prevented.

  4. Hetropolyacid-Catalyzed Oxidation of Glycerol into Lactic Acid under Mild Base-Free Conditions

    Meilin Tao, Xiaohu Yi, Dr. Irina Delidovich, Prof. Dr. Regina Palkovits, Prof. Dr. Junyou Shi and Prof. Dr. Xiaohong Wang

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501200

    Total transformation: Heteropolyacids catalyze the base-free transformation of glycerol into lactic acid under very mild reaction conditions. Yields of lactic acid up to 92 % are obtained. In particular, H3PMo12O40 on carbon was stable upon recycling and applicable for the conversion of neat and crude glycerol.

  5. Alkanes from Bioderived Furans by using Metal Triflates and Palladium-Catalyzed Hydrodeoxygenation of Cyclic Ethers

    Hai-Jie Song, Dr. Jin Deng, Min-Shu Cui, Xing-Long Li, Xin-Xin Liu, Rui Zhu, Wei-Peng Wu and Prof. Dr. Yao Fu
