  1. Incorporation of a Metal Oxide Interlayer using a Virus-Templated Assembly for Synthesis of Graphene-Electrode-Based Organic Photovoltaics

    Dr. Yong Man Lee, Wanjung Kim, Dr. Young Hun Kim, Jung Kyu Kim, Ji-ryang Jang, Prof. Woo-Seok Choe, Prof. Jong Hyeok Park and Prof. Pil J. Yoo

    Article first published online: 25 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403487

    Virus scan: The synthesis and incorporation of a WO3 interlayer into graphene-electrode-based organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices is developed by using an engineered biotemplate of M13 viruses. Owing to uniform deposition of the WO3 layer and maintenance of the electrical properties of the graphene electrode, a remarkable increase in the photoconversion efficiency (>20 %) relative to that of conventional OPVs can be obtained.

  2. Nanoporous Ru as a Carbon- and Binder-Free Cathode for Li–O2 Batteries

    Dr. Kaiming Liao, Dr. Tao Zhang, Dr. Yongqing Wang, Dr. Fujun Li, Dr. Zelang Jian, Dr. Haijun Yu and Prof. Haoshen Zhou

    Article first published online: 25 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403371

    Reliable ruthenium: A simple method to fabricate nanoporous Ru catalyst for Li–O2 batteries is explored. As a carbon- and binder-free cathode, the nanoporous Ru can be continuously discharged and charged for 100 cycles within a very narrow terminal voltage window and delivers a limited capacity. This good performance is due to strong adhesion of the Ru with the Ni current collector, and good permeation of O2 and electrolyte in the catalyst.

  3. Mesoporous Carbon Nitride-Tungsten Oxide Composites for Enhanced Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution

    Dr. Kamalakannan Kailasam, Prof. Dr. Anna Fischer, Guigang Zhang, Dr. Jinshui Zhang, Dr. Michael Schwarze, Marc Schröder, Prof. Dr. Xinchen Wang, Prof. Dr. Reinhard Schomäcker and Prof. Dr. Arne Thomas

    Article first published online: 20 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403278

    CN/WO3 composites for enhanced H2 evolution: Mesoporous CN/WO3 composites prepared by a simple dispersion method are efficient photocatalysts for enhanced hydrogen production from water. Compared to other nonporous composites based on carbon nitrides, a twofold increase in activity is observed, which is attributed to the high surface area and efficient solid-state Z-scheme-induced charge separation in these composites.

  4. Nanotubular Heterostructure of Tin Dioxide/Titanium Dioxide as a Binder-Free Anode in Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Myungjun Kim, Joobong Lee, Seonhee Lee, Seongrok Seo, Dr. Changdeuck Bae and Prof. Hyunjung Shin

    Article first published online: 20 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500005

    Solid foundations: Arrays of TiO2, SnO2, heterotubular TiO2/SnO2, and TiO2/SnO2/TiO2 as binder-free anodes in lithium-ion batteries are successfully synthesized by using template-assisted atomic-layer deposition (ALD), which enables not only precise structural control, but also suppression of a large volume change in SnO2.

  5. Nanocomposite Membranes based on Polybenzimidazole and ZrO2 for High-Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells

    Dr. Graeme Nawn, Dr. Giuseppe Pace, Dr. Sandra Lavina, Dr. Keti Vezzù, Dr. Enrico Negro, Dr. Federico Bertasi, Prof. Stefano Polizzi and Prof. Vito Di Noto

    The new star in the fuel cell: The development of thermally stable polymer exchange membranes that demonstrate conductivity under anhydrous conditions remains a significant goal for fuel cell technology. This paper describes the structure–property relationships of composite membranes consisting of poly[2,2′-(m-phenylene)-5,5′-bibenzimidazole] impregnated with a ZrO2 nanofiller that has a high ionic conductivity at 185 °C.
