  1. Contributors to Enhanced CO2 Electroreduction Activity and Stability in a Nanostructured Au Electrocatalyst

    Dr. Haeri Kim, Hyo Sang Jeon, Michael Shincheon Jee, Eduardus Budi Nursanto, Dr. Jitendra Pal Singh, Dr. Keunhwa Chae, Dr. Yun Jeong Hwang and Dr. Byoung Koun Min

    Enhanced CO2 reduction activity! A combination of extended X-ray absorption fine structure analysis and Kelvin probe force microscopy identified differences in the Au−Au bond length and work function values between nanostructured and flat Au. The deposition of cations from the electrolyte on the Au surface after CO2 reduction was investigated to determine its role in the degradation of the reduction performance.

  2. Improvement of Aluminum–Air Battery Performances by the Application of Flax Straw Extract

    Dr. Ekaterina Grishina, Dr. Danny Gelman, Prof. Sergey Belopukhov, Dr. David Starosvetsky, Alec Groysman and Prof. Yair Ein-Eli

    Straw poll: Flax straw extract added to strong alkaline solution acts as a mixed-type Al corrosion inhibitor. The electrochemistry of Al in alkaline solution and in the presence of a flax straw extract added to the alkaline solution, as well as the effect on the Al morphology, surface films formed, and the corrosion inhibition mechanism are discussed. Al–air cells that use alkaline solutions that contain the flax straw extract show a markedly higher discharge capacity compared with other alkaline electrolytes.

  3. Homogeneous Catalyzed Reactions of Levulinic Acid: To γ-Valerolactone and Beyond

    Homogeneous biomass conversion: Levulinic acid (LA) is an important biomass platform chemical that can be converted to higher value compounds. This Minireview highlights recent advances in the area of homogeneous catalysis for the conversion of levulinic acid and levulinic ester derivatives to γ-valerolactone (GVL), 1,4-pentanediol (1,4-PDO) and 2-methyltetrahydrofuran (2-MTHF).

  4. Coating Pt–Ni Octahedra with Ultrathin Pt Shells to Enhance the Durability without Compromising the Activity toward Oxygen Reduction

    Skin deep: Conformal Pt shells with a thickness of only 1–2 atomic layers are deposited on Pt–Ni octahedra to obtain core–shell catalysts with both high mass activity and durability toward the oxygen reduction reaction.

  5. Enrichment of Pyrrolic Nitrogen by Hole Defects in Nitrogen and Sulfur Co-Doped Graphene Hydrogel for Flexible Supercapacitors

    Ngoc Quang Tran, Dr. Bong Kyun Kang, Moo Hyun Woo and Prof. Dae Ho Yoon

    Double dope! A nitrogen and sulfur co-doped hole defect graphene hydrogel (NS-HGH) was prepared through a facile solution-phase synthesis followed by thermal treatment. The NS-HGH electrodes can enhance the overall performance of the pseudocapacitance and electric double-layer capacitance as well as exhibit extraordinary mechanical flexibility and excellent cycle stability.
