    Skin deep: Conformal Pt shells with a thickness of only 1–2 atomic layers are deposited on Pt–Ni octahedra to obtain core–shell catalysts with both high mass activity and durability toward the oxygen reduction reaction.

  2. Enrichment of Pyrrolic Nitrogen by Hole Defects in Nitrogen and Sulfur Co-Doped Graphene Hydrogel for Flexible Supercapacitors

    Ngoc Quang Tran, Dr. Bong Kyun Kang, Moo Hyun Woo and Prof. Dae Ho Yoon

    Version of Record online: 27 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600668

    Double dope! A nitrogen and sulfur co-doped hole defect graphene hydrogel (NS-HGH) was prepared through a facile solution-phase synthesis followed by thermal treatment. The NS-HGH electrodes can enhance the overall performance of the pseudocapacitance and electric double-layer capacitance as well as exhibit extraordinary mechanical flexibility and excellent cycle stability.

  3. A New Way to Produce Cellulobiose Carbonates Using Green Chemistry

    R. Khiari, Dr. M C. Brochier Salon, Dr. M F. Mhenni, Dr. E. Mauret and Prof. M N. Belgacem

    Version of Record online: 27 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600430

    The green route: The derivatization of cellobiose through green chemistry is established using dimethyl carbonate as an carbonylation reagent. This reaction holds promise for applications in the industrial-scale derivatization of cellulose, as it enables a form of cellobiose carbonate to be prepared at low temperatures using cheap, environmentally friendly, and low-toxicity reagents.

  4. Photocatalytic Carbon Dioxide Reduction at p-Type Copper(I) Iodide

    Dr. Tomasz Baran, Szymon Wojtyła, Prof. Angela Dibenedetto, Prof. Michele Aresta and Prof. Wojciech Macyk

    Version of Record online: 26 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600289

    Enhanced p-type: Copper(I) iodide, a p-type semiconductor, shows a significantly higher photoactivity toward CO2 reduction than extensively studied n-type titanium dioxide. The enhanced photocatalytic activity of CuI is attributed to the very low potential of the conduction band edge

  5. Reversible CO2 Capture by Conjugated Ionic Liquids through Dynamic Covalent Carbon–Oxygen Bonds

    Dual-tuning method: Through the introduction of a large π-conjugated structure into the anion, a dual-tuning approach to improve CO2 capture by anion-functionalized ionic liquids (ILs) results in high capacities of up to 0.96 molinline imageinline image and excellent reversibility. Quantum chemical calculations, spectroscopic investigations, and thermogravimetric analysis indicate that the increased capacity is a result of stronger dynamic covalent bonds.
