  1. Regioselective Air Oxidation of Sulfides to O,S-Acetals in a Bubble Column

    Fabian Brockmeyer and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Martens

    Article first published online: 30 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402310

    Unusual bubbles: A bubble column, which is an uncommon apparatus on laboratory scale, is used in the selective oxidation of α-alkylthio-imines to O,S-acetals with the aid of atmospheric oxygen. Activated carbon is necessary as catalyst only. On that account, the use of metals or photosensitizer is abdicable. By performing the reaction in a bubble column the yield could be increased while the reaction time is reduced in comparison to common laboratory techniques.

  2. Enhanced Oxygen Separation through Robust Freeze-Cast Bilayered Dual-Phase Membranes

    Cyril Gaudillere, Julio Garcia-Fayos, María Balaguer and Prof. José M. Serra

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402324

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Permeating through: Dual-phase oxygen-permeable asymmetric membranes with enhanced oxygen permeation are prepared by combining freeze-casting, screen-printing, and constraint-sintering techniques. The membranes are evaluated under oxyfuel operating conditions. This membrane exhibits a promising oxygen permeation value of 4.8 mL min−1 cm−2 at 1000 °C upon using Ar and air as the sweep and feed gases, respectively.

  3. Unconventional Pore and Defect Generation in Molybdenum Disulfide: Application in High-Rate Lithium-Ion Batteries and the Hydrogen Evolution Reaction

    Kan Zhang, Hwan-Jin Kim, Jeong-Taik Lee, Gee-Woo Chang, Xinjian Shi, Wanjung Kim, Ming Ma, Ki-jeong Kong, Jae-Man Choi, Min-Sang Song and Prof. Jong Hyeok Park

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402372

    Improved through imperfection: Electrochemically active 3D MoS2 nanomesh/reduced graphene oxide (RGO) foam is obtained based on unconventional defect and porosity generation. The foam has a high rate performance and excellent stable cyclability for use in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) and superior activity for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER).

  4. Preventing the Dissolution of Lithium Polysulfides in Lithium–Sulfur Cells by using Nafion-coated Cathodes

    Soo Jung Oh, Jun Kyu Lee and Prof. Woo Young Yoon

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402318

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    My humble anode: A new system for lithium–sulfur batteries is reported. The cells comprise Nafion-coated NiCrAl/S as cathode and lithium powder as anode material. The materials hamper the dissolution of long-chain lithium polysulfides into the electrolyte, thereby improving cycling performance. Electrochemical analysis shows high initial discharge capacities, coupled to good capacity retention values after 100 cycles.

  5. Efficient Organic Sensitizers with Pyridine-N-oxide as an Anchor Group for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    Dr. Lei Wang, Prof. Xichuan Yang, Dr. Jianghua Zhao, Dr. Fuguo Zhang, Prof. Xiuna Wang and Prof. Licheng Sun

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402208

    Dye another day: Five organic dyes with pyridine-N-oxide as the anchor group and electron acceptor have been synthesized and applied in dye-sensitized solar cells. WL307, which has 2-ethylhexyloxy chains in the donor part and benzothiadiazole as an electron-withdrawing bridge, showed an efficiency of 6.08 % under 100 mW cm−2 light illumination. The series of dyes showed a fairly good stability during the one month test period.
