  1. Monobenzoporphyrins as Sensitizers for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells: Observation of Significant Spacer-Group Effect

    Dr. R. G. Waruna Jinadasa, Bihong Li, Benjamin Schmitz, Siddhartha Kumar, Yi Hu, Prof. Lei Kerr and Prof. Hong Wang

    A spacer odyssey: Monobenzoporphyrins bearing conjugated spacer groups are synthesized as sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells. These monobenzoporphyrins demonstrate a significant spacer-group effect and give power conversion efficiencies in the range 0.5 to 5.2 %.

  2. Ag-Promoted ZrBEA Zeolites Obtained by Post-Synthetic Modification for Conversion of Ethanol to Butadiene

    Dr. Vitaly L. Sushkevich and Prof. Irina I. Ivanova

    The Ag goes to Zeolites! Ag/ZrBEA (zirconium-containing zeolite beta) catalysts prepared using a post-synthesis method show significant advantages compared with Ag/ZrBEA catalysts synthesized using a conventional hydrothermal procedure. Parent AlBEA materials with different Si/Al ratios and crystal sizes are used to determine the best catalyst for the conversion of ethanol to butadiene.

  3. Urea- and Thiourea-Catalyzed Aminolysis of Carbonates

    Dr. Marine Blain, Dr. Honman Yau, Dr. Ludivine Jean-Gérard, Dr. Rémi Auvergne, Dominique Benazet, Prof. Peter R. Schreiner, Dr. Sylvain Caillol and Prof. Bruno Andrioletti

    Catalyst substituted: Appropriately substituted ureas advantageously substitute thiourea catalysts in the ring opening of carbonates to afford non-isocyanate polyurethanes. A medium-range pKa of the (thio)urea and an unequal substitution pattern is critical for controlling the efficiency of the carbonate opening

  4. Contributors to Enhanced CO2 Electroreduction Activity and Stability in a Nanostructured Au Electrocatalyst

    Enhanced CO2 reduction activity! A combination of extended X-ray absorption fine structure analysis and Kelvin probe force microscopy identified differences in the Au−Au bond length and work function values between nanostructured and flat Au. The deposition of cations from the electrolyte on the Au surface after CO2 reduction was investigated to determine its role in the degradation of the reduction performance.

  5. Improvement of Aluminum–Air Battery Performances by the Application of Flax Straw Extract

    Dr. Ekaterina Grishina, Dr. Danny Gelman, Prof. Sergey Belopukhov, Dr. David Starosvetsky, Alec Groysman and Prof. Yair Ein-Eli

    Straw poll: Flax straw extract added to strong alkaline solution acts as a mixed-type Al corrosion inhibitor. The electrochemistry of Al in alkaline solution and in the presence of a flax straw extract added to the alkaline solution, as well as the effect on the Al morphology, surface films formed, and the corrosion inhibition mechanism are discussed. Al–air cells that use alkaline solutions that contain the flax straw extract show a markedly higher discharge capacity compared with other alkaline electrolytes.
