- Poly(ethylene glycol)-Based Ionic Liquids: Properties and Uses as Alternative Solvents in Organic Synthesis and Catalysis
Martina Maya Cecchini, Dr. Clarence Charnay, Prof. Francesco De Angelis, Dr. Frédéric Lamaty, Prof. Jean Martinez and Dr. Evelina Colacino
Article first published online: 5 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300421
Caught between phases: The use of poly(ethylene glycol)-based ionic liquids (PEG ILs) as alternative solvents for organic synthesis and catalysis is highlighted (see picture). Their preparation, physical properties, toxicity, environmental impact, and biodegradability are also discussed.
- Hierarchical Copper-Decorated Nickel Nanocatalysts Supported on La2O3 for Low-Temperature Steam Reforming of Ethanol
Jyong-Yue Liu, Prof. Wei-Nien Su, Dr. John Rick, Dr. Sheng-Chiang Yang, Ju-Hsiang Cheng, Dr. Chun-Jern Pan, Dr. Jyh-Fu Lee and Prof. Bing-Joe Hwang

Unlikely allies: Cu/Ni nanocatalysts with a unique morphology are prepared by thermal reduction of a perovskite LaNixCu1−xO3 precursor (x=1, 0.9, and 0.7; see picture). Cu is released first during H2 pretreatment and forms a CuLa alloy. Next, mostly nanosized Ni is generated at a higher temperature before the CuLa alloy decomposes and Cu decorates the Ni nanoparticles.
- Physiological Stratification in Electricity-Producing Biofilms of Geobacter sulfurreducens
Germán David Schrott, Dr. María Victoria Ordoñez, Luciana Robuschi and Dr. Juan Pablo Busalmen
Article first published online: 4 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300605
Live wire! Biochemical data reveal that biomass accumulation in electrogenic biofilms is fivefold higher than the one that supports maximal current production and that most cells in the biofilm are physiologically limited, strongly suggesting that biofilms potentially put microbial fuel cells well beyond the sustainability threshold if internal conductivity limits are overcome.
- Solvent-Free and Catalysts-Free Chemistry: A Benign Pathway to Sustainability
Dr. Manoj B. Gawande, Dr. Vasco D. B. Bonifácio, Prof. Rafael Luque, Prof. Paula S. Branco and Prof. Rajender S. Varma
Article first published online: 4 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300485
Free chemistry: Various innovative sustainable organic reactions and methodologies using no solvents or catalysts and employing conventional and room-temperature heating conditions or alternative energy inputs such as microwaves, sonication, mechanochemical mixing, and high speed ball milling are summarized.
- Reduction Mechanism of Fluoroethylene Carbonate for Stable Solid–Electrolyte Interphase Film on Silicon Anode
Xilin Chen, Xiaolin Li, Donghai Mei, Ju Feng, Mary Y. Hu, Jianzhi Hu, Mark Engelhard, Jianming Zheng, Wu Xu, Jie Xiao, Jun Liu and Ji-Guang Zhang
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300770
To protect and serve: The mechanism by which the electrolyte additive fluoroethylene carbonate (FEC) protects anode materials is proposed. 1) FEC is reduced through the opening of the five-membered ring leading to the formation of lithium poly(vinyl carbonate), LiF, and some dimers; 2) the FEC-derived lithium poly(vinyl carbonate) enhances the stability of the SEI film. The proposed reduction mechanism could help identify new electrolyte additives.
