  1. Pressure-Accelerated Azide–Alkyne Cycloaddition: Micro Capillary versus Autoclave Reactor Performance

    Svetlana Borukhova, Dr. Andreas D. Seeger, Dr. Timothy Noël, Qi Wang, Prof. Dr. Markus Busch and Prof. Dr. Volker Hessel

    Article first published online: 17 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403034

    Press to access! The potential of pressure in chemical intensification of intrinsic kinetics of 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition is investigated along with high temperature and concentration effects. Two reactors are compared, a specialized autoclave batch reactor for high-pressure operation up to 1800 bar and a capillary flow reactor for up to 400 bar. Reaction speedup and increases in space-time yields are reached while widening process windows of favorable operation to selectively produce Rufinamide precursor in good yields.

  2. Selective Oxidation of n-Butanol Using Gold-Palladium Supported Nanoparticles Under Base-Free Conditions

    Dr. Inaki Gandarias, Dr. Peter J. Miedziak, Dr. Ewa Nowicka, Mark Douthwaite, Dr. David J. Morgan, Prof. Graham J. Hutchings and Prof. Stuart H. Taylor

    Article first published online: 17 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403190

    Stabilize, catalyze, oxidize: Au-Pd nanoparticles supported on TiO2, prepared by sol immobilization using polyvinyl alcohol as the stabilizing ligand, produced a high yield of butyric acid by the base-free oxidation of n-butanol by molecular oxygen under mild conditions.

  3. An Aqueous Zinc-Ion Battery Based on Copper Hexacyanoferrate

    Dr. Rafael Trócoli and Dr. Fabio La Mantia

    Article first published online: 15 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403143

    1.7 V aqueous battery: A new zinc-ion battery based on copper hexacyanoferrate and zinc foil in a nontoxic, noncorrosive electrolyte has been developed. The system shows cyclability, rate capability, and specific energy values near to those of lithium-ion organic batteries based on Li4Ti5O12 and LiFePO4 at 10 C.

  4. Bifunctional Silver(I) Complex-Catalyzed CO2 Conversion at Ambient Conditions: Synthesis of α-Methylene Cyclic Carbonates and Derivatives

    Dr. Qing-Wen Song, Wei-Qiang Chen, Dr. Ran Ma, Prof. Ao Yu, Qiu-Yue Li, Yao Chang and Prof. Dr. Liang-Nian He

    Article first published online: 15 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402921

    Catalytic fixation of CO2: [(PPh3)2Ag]2CO3 is proven to be a robust bifunctional catalyst for the chemical upgrading of CO2 at atmospheric pressure to produce valuable compounds at ambient conditions. [(PPh3)2Ag]2CO3 can activate both CO2 and propargylic alcohol, and promote the subsequent intramolecular nucleophilic cyclization.

  5. Cyclic Stability Testing of Aminated-Silica Solid Sorbent for Post-Combustion CO2 Capture

    James C. Fisher II and McMahan Gray

    Article first published online: 15 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402423

    Best flu treatment: An amine-based sorbent is examined for use in CO2 removal from flue gas streams in coal-fired power plants. Cyclic testing results show the stability of the amine-based sorbents over 100 cycles. Furthermore, a rapid method for measuring capture capacity using a tracer gas is developed and confirmed through quantification of the CO2 released during regeneration.
