- Intramolecular Hydroalkoxylation of Non-Activated CC Bonds Catalysed by Zeolites: An Experimental and Theoretical Study
Prof. Elena Pérez-Mayoral, Dr. Ines Matos, Prof. Petr Nachtigall, Miroslav Položij, Prof. Isabel Fonseca, Dr. Dana Vitvarová-Procházková and Prof. Jiří Čejka
Article first published online: 23 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300173
The zeolite fantastic: The high efficiency of zeolites MFI, BEA and FAU in the cyclisation of unsaturated alcohols to afford oxygen-containing heterocyclic rings is demonstrated. It is proposed that the efficiency of the catalysts depends on the existence of the so-called dual site, at which a molecule of an unsaturated alcohol can simultaneously interact with two acid sites.
- Chemocatalytic Conversion of Ethanol into Butadiene and Other Bulk Chemicals
Carlo Angelici, Prof. Bert M. Weckhuysen and Dr. Pieter C. A. Bruijnincx
Article first published online: 23 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300214
Fuel for thought: The dedicated production of 1,3-butadiene from bioethanol is expected to be an effective solution to its current substantial price increase. The Lebedev process for ethanol-to-butadiene conversion is reviewed in detail. The Review also extends to other commodity chemicals that are produced from ethanol and are involved as intermediates or byproducts in the bio-based butadiene production process.
- Controlled Hydrophobic Functionalization of Natural Fibers through Self-Assembly of Amphiphilic Diblock Copolymer Micelles
Niko Aarne, Prof. Janne Laine, Dr. Tuomas Hänninen, Ville Rantanen, Dr. Jani Seitsonen, Prof. Janne Ruokolainen and Dr. Eero Kontturi
Article first published online: 17 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300218
Rough and ready: A platform technology for the hydrophobization of natural fibers in water through amphiphilic block copolymer micelle adsorption onto fibers and subsequent heating. The natural roughening of the fibers upon drying facilitates hydrophobization, and heating reveals the hydrophobic core, which allows further hydrophobizing of the surface. Heat treatment tunes the effect of changes to the advancing water contact angles of 120° to 150°.
- Reversible Capture of SO2 through Functionalized Ionic Liquids
Dezhong Yang, Minqiang Hou, Hui Ning, Jun Ma, Xinchen Kang, Jianling Zhang and Prof. Buxing Han
Article first published online: 16 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300224
Say it ain′t SO2! The ionic liquid [Et2NEMim][Tetz] is synthesized and demonstrated to have an extremely high absorption capacity and rapid absorption/desorption rates for the capture of SO2. [Et2NEMim][Tetz] can be regenerated and reused, making it a very attractive ionic liquid for practical SO2 capture applications.
- Amorphous Cu–In–S Nanoparticles as Precursors for CuInSe2 Thin-Film Solar Cells with a High Efficiency
Dr. SeJin Ahn, Yoo Jeong Choi, Kyunhwan Kim, Dr. Young-Joo Eo, Ara Cho, Dr. Jihye Gwak, Dr. Jae Ho Yun, Dr. Keeshik Shin, Dr. Seoung Kyu Ahn and Dr. Kyunghoon Yoon
Article first published online: 16 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201200894
CuInS a phase: An amorphous Cu–In–S nanoparticle-based route to form dense CuInSe2 absorber layers for thin-film solar cells, in which the precursor nanoparticles are prepared within one minute of reaction without external heating, is demonstrated. A power conversion efficiency as high as 7.94 % is achieved by using this method.
