    Talkin′ about our generation: Copper-based metal oxide (CuO, CuO/Co3O4) nanoparticles have been synthesized from coordination-driven self-assembling aggregates and calcination treatment. They exhibited exceptional catalytic activity and stability for the selective oxidation of styrene and its derivatives to generate the corresponding aldehydes (see figure; TBHP=tert-butyl hydroperoxide).

  2. Selenium–Selenium Bond Cleavage of Diaryl Diselenide Radical Anions During Pulse Radiolysis

    Studying ArSe: An unpaired electron of αNpSeSeαNp. is localized in the Se[BOND]Se σ* orbital with an elongated Se[BOND]Se bond at 77 K. As the temperature increases, αNpSeSeαNp. changes to Intermediate. with an absorption at longer wavelength owing to the conformational change, in which an unpaired electron is delocalized in the interaction between the π* and σ* orbital (see scheme).

  3. Colloidal Synthesis and Photocatalytic Performance of Size-Controllable Solid or Hollow CuInSe2 Nanocrystals

    Dr. Pengtao Sheng, Dr. Weili Li, Xin Wang, Xi Tong and Prof. Dr. Qingyun Cai

    Article first published online: 21 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402161

    Built up to be knocked down: A construction–disintegration process is presented to understand the formation of small CuInSe2 nanocrystals. Size-tunable and uniform solid/hollow spherical nanocrystals (or mixture) and quantum dots can be easily obtained by carefully controlling the experimental conditions (see picture, scale bar is 50 nm). The structure-dependent photocatalytic activity was confirmed with TiO2 nanotube array based photoelectrodes.

  4. Size-Induced Chiral Discrimination Switching by (S)-(−)-2(α-Hydroxyethyl)Benzimidazole-Derived Azacrowns

    Switching sides: The size of a chiral azacrown rather than the configuration of the chiral center/s in the hosts is the dominant influence on the enantioselective binding of guests. Thus, S-(−)-2(α-hydroxyethyl)benzimidazole-derived [15]crown-5 azacrown exhibit a preference for the S enantiomer of amino guests, whereas S-(−)-2(α-hydroxyethyl)benzimidazole-derived [18]crown-6 azacrowns exhibit a preference for the R enantiomer (see scheme).

  5. Air Electrode for the Lithium–Air Batteries: Materials and Structure Designs

    Air power: The energy storage capacity and power capability of Li–air batteries are determined by the air electrode. The electrocatalytic oxygen reaction occurs at a three-phase contact zone between air, liquid electrolyte, and solid catalyst. In aqueous electrolytes, oxygen is reduced to OH, which is dissolved into the electrolyte (see figure). In cells based on organic electrolyte, only the oxygen dissolved in the electrolyte participates in the oxygen reduction.
