  1. MnCo2O4 Nanowires Anchored on Reduced Graphene Oxide Sheets as Effective Bifunctional Catalysts for Li–O2 Battery Cathodes

    Dr. Jong Guk Kim, Youngmin Kim, Yuseong Noh and Prof. Won Bae Kim

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500123

    Between the nanosheets: A hybrid composite system of MnCo2O4 nanowires (MCO NWs) anchored on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) nanosheets is prepared for the bifunctional catalyst of a Li–O2 battery cathode. A Li–O2 battery with the MCO@RGO catalyst has high long-term durability and high energy density and could be a promising O2 cathode system for next-generation Li–O2 batteries.

  2. Electrocatalytic Hydrogenation of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural in Acidic Solution

    Dr. Youngkook Kwon, Yuvraj Y. Birdja, Dr. Saeed Raoufmoghaddam and Prof. Marc T. M. Koper

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500176

    HMF hydrogenation: Electrocatalytic hydrogenation of of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is studied on solid metal electrodes in acidic solution (0.5 M H2SO4). The pH of the solution plays an important role in the hydrogenation of HMF: acidic conditions lower the activation energy for HMF hydrogenation and hydrogenate the furan ring further, to tetrahydrofuran.

  3. Metallo-Deuteroporphyrin as a Biomimetic Catalyst for the Catalytic Oxidation of Lignin to Aromatics

    Dr. Chenjie Zhu, Weiwei Ding, Tao Shen, Chenglun Tang, Dr. Chenguo Sun, Shichao Xu, Yong Chen, Jinglan Wu and Prof. Hanjie Ying

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500048

    Cobalt cleavage: Metallo-deuteroporphyrins derived from natural hemin have been synthesized to mimic the cytochrome P450 enzyme for the oxidation of lignin model compounds under mild conditions. In the oxidative depolymerization of enzymolysis lignin, a significant portion of well-defined aromatic monomers is produced (see scheme).

  4. Melt-Polymerization of TEMPO Methacrylates with Nano Carbons Enables Superior Battery Materials

    Dr. Alexandru Vlad, Julien Rolland, Guillaume Hauffman, Bruno Ernould and Prof. Jean-François Gohy

    Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500246

    Melting polymers for batteries: Organic solvent-free melt polymerization of TEMPO methacrylates is shown not only to be cleaner and environmentally friendly, it also provides a highly cross-linked, insoluble polymer–carbon composite, in which the carbon is homogeneously dispersed on the nanoscale. Battery electrodes constructed using such a composite show superior electrochemical performances compared to state-of-art while having a low carbon content.

  5. Carbon-Nanotubes-Supported Pd Nanoparticles for Alcohol Oxidations in Fuel Cells: Effect of Number of Nanotube Walls on Activity

    Jin Zhang, Dr. Shanfu Lu, Prof. Yan Xiang, Prof. Pei Kang Shen, Dr. Jian Liu and Prof. San Ping Jiang

    Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500107

    Three′s the magic number: Palladium nanoparticles (NPs) with controlled particle size are uniformly assembled on the surface of carbon nanotubes CNTs with varying numbers of walls. Pd NPs supported on triple-walled CNTs (TWNTs) have the highest mass activity and stability for methanol, ethanol and ethylene glycol oxidation reactions, as compared to Pd NPs supported on single-walled and multi-walled CNTs.
