2-(N-Methylbenzyl)pyridine: A Potential Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier with Fast H2 Release and Stable Activity in Consecutive Cycles

It could've been a brilliant carrier: A new liquid organic hydrogen carrier is designed by adding N atom into the benzene ring of a benchmark heat-transfer fluid. The crossover between H2-lean and H2-rich forms of the title material is reversible in repeated runs. Notably, the reduced dehydrogenation enthalpy, owing to the presence of N, leads to very fast H2 release, indicating excellent potential for efficient H2 storage.

  1. Sustainable Synthesis of Oxalic and Succinic Acid through Aerobic Oxidation of C6 Polyols Under Mild Conditions

    Dr. Maria Ventura, Dr. David Williamson, Francesco Lobefaro, Matthew D. Jones, Prof. Davide Mattia, Dr. Francesco Nocito, Prof. Michele Aresta and Prof. Angela Dibenedetto

    Clean made easy: Aerobic oxidative cleavage of C6 polyols (5-HMF, glucose, fructose and sucrose) to oxalic acid (overall yield 48–62 %) and succinic acid was achieved in water under mild conditions using M@CNT and M@NCNT (M=Fe, V; CNT=carbon nanotubes; NCNT=N-doped CNT), which were recoverable and reusable without any loss of efficiency. This process was clean and did not produce organic waste nor gas emissions.

  2. MoS2 Quantum Dots-Modified Covalent Triazine-Based Frameworks for Enhanced Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution

    Gathering MoS2: MoS2 quantum dots (QDs)-modified covalent triazine framework (CTF) composites were synthesized by an in situ photodeposition method from a (NH4)2MoS4 precursor. The interactions between the MoS2 QDs and the CTF distinctly enhanced the photocatalytic hydrogen production under visible light irradiation.

    Chip off the old block: We report a simple, effective, and low-temperature (≈100 °C) process for the pretreatment of hardwood and softwood chips directly by using a catalytic system of FeCl3/NaNO3. A conversion of 71.53 and 70.66 % of cellulose to sugar could be obtained for the direct use of large hardwood and softwood chips.
