7_05i/2014Inside Cover Picture: Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution from Glycerol and Water over Nickel-Hybrid Cadmium Sulfide Quantum Dots under Visible-Light Irradiation (ChemSusChem 5/2014)

The inside cover shows a cheap, simple, and efficient artificial photocatalyst, nickel-hybrid CdS quantum dots (Nih-CdS QDs), developed by Wu et al. for conversion of glycerol to H2 under visible light irradiation. The photocatalyst, formed in situ from 3-mercaptopropionic acid-CdS quantum dots and Ni2+ ions, is capable of producing H2 at pH values ranging from 5 to 9, and shows the highest photocatalytic activity known to date for H2 evolution from the relatively inert biomass glycerol, which has a low market price, in aqueous solutions. More details can be found in the Full Paper on page 1468 (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201400028).
