  1. Potential of Sustainable Hierarchical Zeolites in the Valorization of α-Pinene

    Nicolas Nuttens, Dr. Danny Verboekend, Aron Deneyer, Joost Van Aelst and Prof. Bert F. Sels

    Article first published online: 3 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403457

    Who’s the boss? Base-leached hierarchical ZSM-5, beta and USY are studied in the conversion of α-pinene, which is a biomass side stream in the wood processing industry. An overall organic-free synthesis of hierarchical USY is described and the catalytic performance is closely examined.

  2. Selective Aerobic Oxidation of 5-HMF into 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid with Pt Catalysts Supported on TiO2- and ZrO2-Based Supports

    Hicham Ait Rass, Nadine Essayem and Michèle Besson

    Article first published online: 3 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403390

    Back to bases: The addition of increasing amounts of NaHCO3 soluble base improved significantly the catalytic activity of Pt/TiO2 in HMF oxidation to FDCA by accelerating the oxidation rate of the aldehyde group. Moreover, the promotion of the catalyst with bismuth yielded a Pt[BOND]Bi/TiO2 catalytic system (with Na2CO3 as the weak base) with improved activity and stability with respect to the monometallic catalyst.

  3. Efficient, Chemical-Catalytic Approach to the Production of 3-Hydroxypropanoic Acid by Oxidation of Biomass-Derived Levulinic Acid With Hydrogen Peroxide

    Dr. Linglin Wu, Dr. Saikat Dutta and Prof. Mark Mascal

    Article first published online: 3 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201500025

    Just say no to fermentation: The first selective, chemical-catalytic approach to renewable 3-hydroxypropanoic acid (HPA) has been accomplished by gentle oxidation of biomass-derived levulinic acid with hydrogen peroxide and hydrogenolysis of the resulting hydroperoxide intermediate. HPA is a green building block of major potential for the production of renewable acrylate derivatives.

  4. Discharge Performance of Solid-State Oxygen Shuttle Metal–Air Battery Using Ca-Stabilized ZrO2 Electrolyte

    Dr. Atsushi Inoishi, Hack-Ho Kim, Dr. Takaaki Sakai, Dr. Young-Wan Ju, Dr. Shintaro Ida and Prof. Tatsumi Ishihara

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201403151

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Shuttle takes off: Oxygen-shuttle metal–air batteries with a Ca-stabilized ZrO2 electrolyte are studied by using various metals as anode. A strong reducing environment in the anode chamber decreases the ohmic and polarization resistance of the anode with n-type conduction generated in the electrolyte. However, only mildly reducing metals can be used in rechargeable metal–air batteries as the transport number of the CSZ electrolyte must be unity during charge and discharge.

  5. High-Throughput Screening of Thin-Film Semiconductor Material Libraries II: Characterization of Fe[BOND]W[BOND]O Libraries

    Robert Meyer, Kirill Sliozberg, Dr. Chinmay Khare, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schuhmann and Prof. Dr. Alfred Ludwig

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402918

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Search for new solar water splitting materials: The combinatorial synthesis and high-throughput screening of the Fe[BOND]W[BOND]O system using more than 1000 different measurement areas located on three material libraries are presented. Correlations between increased photocurrent density and crystallinity, especially for the phases WO3 and W5O14 and less distinct but still apparent for the Fe2O6W phase, are revealed.
