  1. Scalable Synthesis of Efficient Water Oxidation Catalysts: Insights into the Activity of Flame-Made Manganese Oxide Nanocrystals

    Guanyu Liu, Jeremy Hall, Noushin Nasiri, Dr. Thomas Gengenbach, Prof. Leone Spiccia, Dr. Mun Hon Cheah and Dr. Antonio Tricoli

    Article first published online: 30 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500704

    Hot for production: Scalable, low-cost synthesis of highly active nanocrystalline manganese oxide water-oxidation catalysts is achieved by one-step flame spray synthesis. These high temperature synthesized nanocatalysts show up to 350 % higher surface-specific turnover frequencies than wet-made commercial isomorphs, demonstrating potential for large-scale production of efficient water-splitting nanocatalysts.

  2. Catalytic Activity and Impedance Behavior of Screen-Printed Nickel Oxide as Efficient Water Oxidation Catalysts

    A WOC in the park: Thin films of NiO nanoparticles and microballs are demonstrated to be efficient and highly robust water oxidation catalysts. Under similar experimental conditions, the microball films outperform the nanoparticle films of similar thickness owing to a more porous structure and higher surface area. Their performance improves with anodization as a result of the formation of a mixed nickel oxyhydroxide phase on the surface of the films.

  3. Aqueous Modification of Nano- and Microfibrillar Cellulose with a Click Synthon

    Hubert Hettegger, Marco Beaumont, Prof. Dr. Antje Potthast and Prof. Dr. Thomas Rosenau

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501358

    Wetten das: A mild and fast azido-functionalization protocol for different never-dried celluloses in water under room temperature conditions is highlighted. As a representative example for subsequent click chemical derivatization, a Rhodamine B derivative is used. This green method is shown to be independent of the never-dried cellulose substrate, and a variety of different compounds could be introduced for the development of novel, functionalized, green, and renewable cellulose-based materials.

  4. Eco-friendly Energy Storage System: Seawater and Ionic Liquid Electrolyte

    Prof. Jae-Kwang Kim, Franziska Mueller, Hyojin Kim, Dr. Sangsik Jeong, Jeong-Sun Park, Prof. Stefano Passerini and Prof. Youngsik Kim

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501328

    Clean, green, ionic machine: An eco-friendly energy storage system using seawater and an ionic liquid electrolyte is demonstrated for the first time. The ionic liquid electrolyte enables stable cycling behavior of the Sn-C anode and avoids the formation of insoluble decomposition products at the solid/liquid electrolyte interface. These enhanced performances render the green seawater rechargeable cell a promising candidate for large-scale energy storage systems.

  5. AuPt Alloy on TiO2: A Selective and Durable Catalyst for L-Sorbose Oxidation to 2-Keto-Gulonic Acid

    Dr. Carine E. Chan-Thaw, Dr. Lidia E. Chinchilla, Sebastian Campisi, Prof. Gianluigi A. Botton, Prof. Laura Prati, Dr. Nikolaos Dimitratos and Dr. Alberto Villa

    Article first published online: 27 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501202

    Get your vitamin C: Alloying Pt and Au to yield AuPt nanoparticles results in high selectivity in the selective oxidation of L-sorbose to 2-keto-gulonic acid, a valuable precursor for the production of vitamin C. This compares well with supported monometallic Pt nanoparticles. The acidity/basicity of the support used plays an important role for the selectivity. The stability of the alloyed AuPt nanoparticles is considerably improved as metal leaching is prevented.
