  1. Discharge Performance of Solid-State Oxygen Shuttle Metal–Air Battery Using Ca-Stabilized ZrO2 Electrolyte

    Dr. Atsushi Inoishi, Hack-Ho Kim, Dr. Takaaki Sakai, Dr. Young-Wan Ju, Dr. Shintaro Ida and Prof. Tatsumi Ishihara

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403151

    Shuttle takes off: Oxygen-shuttle metal–air batteries with a Ca-stabilized ZrO2 electrolyte are studied by using various metals as anode. A strong reducing environment in the anode chamber decreases the ohmic and polarization resistance of the anode with n-type conduction generated in the electrolyte. However, only mildly reducing metals can be used in rechargeable metal–air batteries as the transport number of the CSZ electrolyte must be unity during charge and discharge.

  2. High-Throughput Screening of Thin-Film Semiconductor Material Libraries II: Characterization of Fe[BOND]W[BOND]O Libraries

    Robert Meyer, Kirill Sliozberg, Dr. Chinmay Khare, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schuhmann and Prof. Dr. Alfred Ludwig

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402918

    Search for new solar water splitting materials: The combinatorial synthesis and high-throughput screening of the Fe[BOND]W[BOND]O system using more than 1000 different measurement areas located on three material libraries are presented. Correlations between increased photocurrent density and crystallinity, especially for the phases WO3 and W5O14 and less distinct but still apparent for the Fe2O6W phase, are revealed.

  3. High-Throughput Screening of Thin-Film Semiconductor Material Libraries I: System Development and Case Study for Ti[BOND]W[BOND]O

    Kirill Sliozberg, Dr. Dominik Schäfer, Dr. Thomas Erichsen, Robert Meyer, Dr. Chinmay Khare, Prof. Dr. Alfred Ludwig and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schuhmann

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402917

    The dark box of photoelectrochemistry: An optical scanning droplet cell (OSDC) automatically records photoelectrochemical data on small selected measurement areas within sputtered thin-film material libraries. Intensity-dependent photopotentials and -currents, potentiodynamic and potentiostatic photocurrents, as well as photocurrent (action) spectra are reproducibly acquired and demonstrated for a Ti[BOND]W[BOND]O case study.

  4. Highly Efficient Binuclear Ruthenium Catalyst for Water Oxidation

    Anett C. Sander, Dr. Somnath Maji, Dr. Laia Francàs, Torben Böhnisch, Dr. Sebastian Dechert, Prof. Dr. Antoni Llobet and Prof. Dr. Franc Meyer

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403344

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Design is possible: A new binuclear ruthenium-based water oxidation catalyst is presented that combines multiple beneficial structural elements for lowering the metal ions’ redox potentials, enhancing catalyst durability, and favoring the catalytic process. This leads to an impressive initial turnover frequency of 1.4 s−1 in CeIV-mediated water oxidation and high electrocatalytic activity. Spectroscopic and electrochemical signatures reflect the well-designed molecular properties.

  5. Facile Synthesis and Enhanced Visible-Light Photocatalysis of Graphitic Carbon Nitride Composite Semiconductors

    Huiquan Li, Yuxing Liu, Xing Gao, Cong Fu and Prof. Xinchen Wang

    Article first published online: 26 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500024

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Photo finish: Graphitic carbon nitride (CN) and B-modified graphitic carbon nitride (CNB) organic–organic isotype semiconductors are fabricated by a facile calcination method. The recombination of photoinduced electrons and holes in CN-CNB is reduced, which thus enhances the photocatalytic H2 evolution activity in water splitting and improves the photodegradation efficiency for methyl orange and phenol under visible-light irradiation.
