VIP: Aqueous Biphasic Systems for the Synthesis of Formates by Catalytic CO2 Hydrogenation: Integrated Reaction and Catalyst Separation for CO2-Scrubbing Solutions
Martin Scott, Dr. Beatriz Blas Molinos, Christian Westhues, Dr. Giancarlo Franciò and Prof. Dr. Walter Leitner
Scrubs up well: An integrated process for the synthesis of formate–amine adducts based on aqueous biphasic catalysis is presented. The solvent pair methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC)/water led to the most productive system with a ruthenium complex as catalyst. Re-use of the catalyst phase was demonstrated. This approach enables the direct hydrogenation of carbon dioxide in aqueous solutions of monoethanolamine and methyl diethanolamine, as used in carbon capture technologies, with a total turnover number of up to 150 000.

Effects of surface exposure: The chemical instability of imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs) in contact with lithium metal is discussed. After aging the ILs in contact with a lithium-metal sheet, possible decomposition products are analyzed. Furthermore, stable cycling behavior in lithium-metal batteries occurs through the addition of the solid–electrolyte interphase film-forming additive fluoroethylene carbonate.

Flexible electrodes: A metal–phenolic carbon nanocomposite film is designed and assembled by metal–organic coordination. The phenolic groups of tannic acid facilitate the aqueous dispersion and cross-linking of carbon nanotubes and provide redox-active sites for pseudocapacitance. The resulting materials exhibit high strength, flexibility, and stable volumetric capacitance under bending conditions.
