  1. Why is Anatase a Better Photocatalyst than Rutile? The Importance of Free Hydroxyl Radicals

    Gylen Odling and Dr. Neil Robertson

    Article first published online: 21 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500298

    A tale of two polymorphs: Anatase is typically a more effective photocatalyst than rutile, however no consensus exists upon the reasons for this difference. Highlighted is a recent development in this area, which gives new insight into the desorption of reactive species from the surface of anatase and rutile. Following presentation of key methods and results of the highlighted work, the wider implications to other similar semiconductor photocatalysts are considered.

  2. Selective Oxidation of 1,6-Hexanediol to 6-Hydroxycaproic Acid over Reusable Hydrotalcite-Supported Au–Pd Bimetallic Catalysts

    Jaya Tuteja, Dr. Shun Nishimura, Hemant Choudhary and Prof. Dr. Kohki Ebitani

    Article first published online: 20 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500255

    Talcite assumptions: Au–Pd nanoparticles stabilized by N,N-dimethyldodecylamine N-oxide (DDAO) and on a hydrotalcite support are prepared. The supported nanoparticles are employed for the selective oxidation of 1,6-hexanediol to 6-hydroxycaproic acid in alkaline medium with 30% aq. H2O2 as oxidant. Analysis of the catalysts by a combination of spectroscopic techniques reveals electronic interactions between gold an palladium that are responsible for the catalytic performance.

  3. Capacitive Deionization using Biomass-based Microporous Salt-Templated Heteroatom-Doped Carbons

    Slawomir Porada, Florian Schipper, Mesut Aslan, Markus Antonietti, Volker Presser and Tim-Patrick Fellinger

    Article first published online: 13 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500166

    Salty carbons: Heteroatom-doped carbons lead to improved properties in a number of classic carbon applications. Is this also true for capacitive desalination? A first study shows interesting salt adsorption capacities but low charge efficiencies.

  4. The Effect of Different Phosphorus Chemical States on an Onion-like Carbon Surface for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction

    Xiaoyan Sun, Junyuan Xu, Yuxiao Ding, Dr. Bingsen Zhang, Zhenbao Feng and Prof. Dang Sheng Su

    Article first published online: 13 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500154

    Peeling back the layers: The bonding state of phosphorus on nanocarbon has a significant effect on the catalytic activity of the oxygen reduction reaction. The formation of C[BOND]O[BOND]P bonds improves the activity, whereas C[BOND]P bonds have an adverse effect on stabilizing key intermediates during the reaction owing to the distorted graphitic structure.

  5. Synthesis and Nanostructures of Metal Selenide Precursors for Cu(In,Ga)Se2 Thin-Film Solar Cells

    Ji-Hyun Cha, Se Jin Noh and Prof. Duk-Young Jung

    Article first published online: 8 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403464

    GaGa over nanoparticles: Variation of the gallium concentration in Cu(In0.7Ga0.3)Se2 nanoparticles (CIGSe NPs is investigated by sonochemical synthesis in hydrazine/ethylene glycol solution. The CIGSe device prepared by the nanoink solution based process exhibits a conversion efficiency of 5.17 %.
