Catalyst Stability Benchmarking for the Oxygen Evolution Reaction: The Importance of Backing Electrode Material and Dissolution in Accelerated Aging Studies

Ir-black in back: Fast screening of the material intrinsic activity and stability profiles for acidic oxygen evolution reaction catalysts are of vital importance, but conclusions on the catalyst stability are commonly drawn on the basis of electrochemical information alone. Herein important limitations of such approaches, which are related to the degradation of the backing electrode material, are demonstrated. Ir-black catalysts are investigated for OER activity and the dissolution behavior is found to depend on the backing electrode material used.

    Red light, green light: A light-harvesting nanocrystal is assembled from 9,10-distyrylanthracene and palladium(II) meso-tetraphenyltetrabenzoporphyrin. Red light is harvested and converted into green emission under incoherent excitation of low power density and an upconversion quantum yield of 0.29±0.02 % is obtained on account of the well-defined alignment of the molecules with aggregation-induced emission in the nanocrystals.

    A useful platform: Herein, we discuss the preparation and applications of angelica lactones as biomass-derived platform chemicals. The use of these frameworks as starting materials in organic synthesis to produce potential bioactive compounds will be covered, as will their use as a foundation to highly regarded compounds such as liquid alkanes with prospective use as fuels and polymers.
