  1. CO2 Hydrogenation to Methanol on Supported Au Catalysts under Moderate Reaction Conditions: Support and Particle Size Effects

    Yeusy Hartadi, Dr. Daniel Widmann and Prof. Dr. R. Jürgen Behm

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402645

    Golden times for methanol: The production of “green methanol” from CO2 and H2 represents an attractive approach for chemical energy conversion in renewable energy concepts. Oxide-supported Au catalysts are highly active for this reaction under moderate conditions, and we show how their catalytic performance (activity, selectivity) is correlated to their physical and chemical properties (nature of the support, Au particle size).

  2. Controlling Porosity in Lignin-Derived Nanoporous Carbon for Supercapacitor Applications

    Ju-Won Jeon, Libing Zhang, Prof. Jodie L. Lutkenhaus, Dr. Dhrubojyoti D. Laskar, Dr. John P. Lemmon, Dr. Daiwon Choi, Dr. Manjula I. Nandasiri, Ali Hashmi, Prof. Jie Xu, Dr. Radha K. Motkuri, Dr. Carlos A. Fernandez, Dr. Jian Liu, Dr. Melvin P. Tucker, Peter B. McGrail, Prof. Bin Yang and Dr. Satish K. Nune

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402621

    Low-cost renewable lignin is used as a precursor to produce high surface area, graphitized porous carbons for supercapacitor applications. Molecular weight and oxygen consumption during carbonization are critical factors in controlling the structure and, consequently, capacitor performance. The carbonized residues exhibit good electrochemical performance in terms of high specific capacitance, high energy density and power, and good capacity retention.

  3. Activity of Platinum/Carbon and Palladium/Carbon Catalysts Promoted by Ni2P in Direct Ethanol Fuel Cells

    Guoqiang Li, Dr. Ligang Feng, Jinfa Chang, Dr. Björn Wickman, Prof. Dr. Henrik Grönbeck, Prof. Dr. Changpeng Liu and Prof. Dr. Wei Xing

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402705

    Leaning on C for support: The activity of Pt/C and Pd/C as catalysts for the oxidation of ethanol is greatly improved by using Ni2P as a promoter. The corresponding integrated direct ethanol fuel cells exhibit performance that is remarkably enhanced relative to that of commercial Pt/C and Pd/C catalysts; high activity and stability as well as high maximum power density are observed.

  4. A Catalytic Reactor for the Organocatalyzed Enantioselective Continuous Flow Alkylation of Aldehydes

    Dr. Riccardo Porta, Prof. Dr. Maurizio Benaglia, Dr. Alessandra Puglisi, Dr. Alessandro Mandoli, Dr. Andrea Gualandi and Prof. Pier Giorgio Cozzi

    Article first published online: 21 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402610

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Flowing enantioselectivity: The organocatalyzed α-alkylation of aldehydes with 1,3-benzodithiolylium tetrafluoroborate is performed under continuous flow conditions; excellent enantioselectivities (up to 95 % ee) and high productivity (>3800 h−1) are obtained. Thus, a metal-free catalytic reactor can continuously produce enantiomerically enriched compounds.

  5. General Approach for High-Power Li-Ion Batteries: Multiscale Lithographic Patterning of Electrodes

    Sinho Choi, Tae-Hee Kim, Jung-In Lee, Jieun Kim, Prof. Hyun-Kon Song and Prof. Soojin Park

    Article first published online: 21 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402448

    Mix and pack of Patterned Si: LiFePO4 cathode and Li4Ti5O12 anode materials are combined with multiscale patterned current collectors to make high-performance Li-ion batteries. The patterned Si electrodes show significantly enhanced electrochemical performances, including a high rate capability and highly stable cycling. This simple strategy can be extended to other cathode and anode materials for practical Li-ion battery applications.
