- Towards High Conductivity in Anion-Exchange Membranes for Alkaline Fuel Cells
Dr. Nanwen Li, Dr. Michael D. Guiver and Prof. Wolfgang H. Binder
Article first published online: 18 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300320
Make it snappy: Clicked 1,2,3-triazoles incorporated into anion-exchange membranes (AEMs) provide more sites to form efficient continuous hydrogen-bond networks for anion transport. Such molecular structures show a dramatic enhancement in anion conductivity compared to typical AEMs without triazole groups.
- Highly Active and Recyclable Sn-MWW Zeolite Catalyst for Sugar Conversion to Methyl Lactate and Lactic Acid

Not just sugar! Lewis-acidic Sn-MWW zeolites are obtained through postsynthesis functionalization of deboronated B-MWW with Sn. These materials are highly active, selective, and recyclable catalysts for the conversion of triose sugars to methyl lactate (in methanol) and lactic acid (in water). They also demonstrate good performance in the conversion of hexose sugars and sucrose to methyl lactate.
- Self-Biasing Photoelectrochemical Cell for Spontaneous Overall Water Splitting under Visible-Light Illumination
Dr. Quanpeng Chen, Dr. Jinhua Li, Dr. Xuejin Li, Dr. Ke Huang, Prof. Dr. Baoxue Zhou and Prof. Wenfeng Shangguan
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201200936
WO3/W—wow! A self-biasing photoelectrochemical cell based on a Pt-catalyst-decorated crystalline silicon photovoltaic cell photocathode and WO3/W photoanode that can be self-driven for overall water splitting under visible-light illumination is described.
- A Sustainable Process for Catalytic Oxidative Bromination with Molecular Oxygen
Zhijun Huang, Dr. Fengbo Li, Bingfeng Chen , Tao Lu , Yin Yuan and Prof. Guoqing Yuan
Article first published online: 14 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300289
Workin′ in a bromine: A palladium–polyoxometalate amphiphilic hybrid material serves as catalyst for oxidative brominations. The emulsion-based process avoids the use of toxic and corrosive bromination agents such as Br2 or HBr, and uses molecular oxygen as oxidant. The only side product is water, which is also the reaction medium. The catalyst offers good recoverability and recyclability.
- Degradation of Cyanoacrylic Acid-Based Organic Sensitizers in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
Dr. Cheng Chen, Prof. Xichuan Yang, Dr. Ming Cheng, Dr. Fuguo Zhang and Prof. Licheng Sun
Article first published online: 14 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201200949
Dye-ing to degrade: The degradation mechanism of cyanoacrylic acid-based organic sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) has been studied. With the synergy of water and UV light, the sensitizer desorbs from the TiO2 surface and the cyanoacrylic acid unit of sensitizer is converted into an aldehyde group. It is also observed that the oxygen atom of the aldehyde comes from the solvent water in DSSCs.
