  1. Catalytic Response and Stability of Nickel/Alumina for the Hydrogenation of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural in Water

    Noémie Perret, Alexios Grigoropoulos, Marco Zanella, Troy D. Manning, John B. Claridge and Prof. Matthew J. Rosseinsky

    Article first published online: 12 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501225

    Water as a solvent? The hydrogenation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural over Ni/alumina catalyst can result in exclusive formation of tetrahydrofuran-2,5-diyldimethanol. The effect of water, reaction conditions, and catalysts composition on the catalytic response and stability are investigated.

  2. Selective and Stable Ethylbenzene Dehydrogenation to Styrene over Nanodiamonds under Oxygen-lean Conditions

    Dr. Jiangyong Diao, Zhenbao Feng, Rui Huang, Prof. Hongyang Liu, Prof. Sharifah Bee Abd Hamid and Prof. Dang Sheng Su

    Article first published online: 12 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501516

    Styrene′s best friend: Significant improvement in the catalytic performance over sp2–sp3 hybridized nanodiamonds is described for a dehydrogenation reaction of ethylbenzene to styrene under oxygen-lean conditions. The direct and oxidative dehydrogenation steps are combined and active oxygen groups are generated in situ under the reaction conditions.

  3. Organic Linker Defines the Excited-State Decay of Photocatalytic MIL-125(Ti)-Type Materials

    Jara G. Santaclara, Maxim A. Nasalevich, Dr. Sonia Castellanos, Dr. Wiel H. Evers, Frank C. M. Spoor, Dr. Kamila Rock, Prof. Laurens D. A. Siebbeles, Prof. Freek Kapteijn, Dr. Ferdinand Grozema, Dr. Arjan Houtepen, Prof. Jorge Gascon, Dr. Johannes Hunger and Dr. Monique A. van der Veen

    Article first published online: 12 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501353

    Lifetime lifeline: In contrast to MIL-125(Ti), the lifetimes of the excited states of photocatalytic NH2-MIL-125(Ti) are remarkably long because of the residence of the photogenerated hole on the electron-donating amino group. These results encourage the design of MIL-125(Ti)-type structures with one or multiple strong electron donor groups to improve its photocatalytic performance.

  4. In Situ Fluorine Doping of TiO2 Superstructures for Efficient Visible-Light Driven Hydrogen Generation

    Peng Zhang, Dr. Takashi Tachikawa, Dr. Mamoru Fujitsuka and Prof. Tetsuro Majima

    Article first published online: 12 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501558

    Light Doping: During the topotactic transformation, TiO2 mesocrystals (TMCs) are doped with TiOF2 to yield n-doped TMCs for efficient visible-light driven H2 generation. The impact of F-doping on the oriented crystal growth and charge-transfer dynamics of TMCs are investigated using in situ temperature-dependent techniques and time-resolved diffuse reflectance spectroscopy.

  5. Direct Conversion of Greenhouse Gas CO2 into Graphene via Molten Salts Electrolysis

    Liwen Hu, Yang Song, Prof. Dr. Shuqiang Jiao, Yingjun Liu, Jianbang Ge, Handong Jiao, Jun Zhu, Junxiang Wang, Prof. Dr. Hongmin Zhu and Prof. Dr. Derek J. Fray

    Article first published online: 12 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201501591

    Gr-aph-een Planet: Graphene is successfully produced through the electrochemical reduction of CO2 via molten salts electrolysis. The process requires good control of kinetics, such as diffusivities of multiple ions, solubility of various gases, and the nucleation/growth of carbon on a surface, and may lead to a new generation of procedures for the synthesis of high value-added products from CO2, contributing to the establishment of a low-carbon and sustainable world.
