  1. Surface Functionalization for Synergistic Catalysis: Silica–Alumina-Supported Cationic Indium and Organic Base for Cyanoethoxycarbonylation

    Dr. Ken Motokura, Yasuhiro Ito, Hiroto Noda, Dr. Akimitsu Miyaji, Dr. Sho Yamaguchi and Prof. Dr. Toshihide Baba

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402004

    Close relationship: A silica–alumina (SiO2–Al2O3) surface possessing both In3+ cations and an amine base is described. These two functions on same solid surface act as acidic and basic units in the catalytic cyanoethoxycarbonylation of aldehyde (see picture).

  2. An Aqueous Lithium–Iodine Battery with Solid Polymer Electrolyte-Coated Metallic Lithium Anode

    Dr. Yu Zhao, Nadège Bonnet Mercier and Dr. Hye Ryung Byon

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402038

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    On solid ground: Aqueous lithium–iodine (Li–I2) cells with solid polymer electrolyte-passivated metallic lithium have been demonstrated (see figure). The solid-state polymer electrolyte protects the metallic Li and the aqueous Li–I2 cells deliver a capacity of approximately 190 mA h g−1 with ideal Coulombic efficiency and a discharge potential of 3.4 V versus Li+/Li.

  3. Simulation Analysis of Regional Temperature Effects and Battery Management Schedules for a Residential-Scale Vanadium Redox Flow Battery System

    Dr. Ao Tang and Prof. Maria Skyllas-Kazacos

    Article first published online: 11 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201400034

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Battery management: For all-vanadium redox flow batteries (see figure), prevention of vanadium-component precipitation and restoration of capacity loss are two critical concerns. Dynamic modelling and simulation analysis were thus performed to explore electrolyte temperature variations associated with different regional temperature effects and provide deeper insights into scheduling necessary battery operation management.

  4. From Molecular Structures of Ionic Liquids to Predicted Retention of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters in Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography

    Chadin Kulsing, Yada Nolvachai, Annie Xu Zeng, Dr. Sung-Tong Chin, Dr. Blagoj Mitrevski and Prof. Philip J. Marriott

    Article first published online: 11 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201300410

    Forecasting a result: Prediction of the separation performance of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analytes on capillary columns coated with ionic liquid phases by knowledge of their molecular structures is possible (see figure; LSER=linear solvation energy relationship). Whilst providing deeper insight into separation mechanisms, trial-and-error experimentation related to method development in multidimensional gas chromatography can also be reduced.

  5. Durable Superhydrophobic/Superoleophilic Polyurethane Sponges Inspired by Mussel and Lotus Leaf for the Selective Removal of Organic Pollutants from Water

    Bucheng Li, Lingxiao Li, Lei Wu, Junping Zhang and Aiqin Wang

    Article first published online: 10 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201300403

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Sponges for separation: A versatile approach for the preparation of durable superhydrophobic polyurethane (PU) sponges is developed through in-turn covalent modification with polydopamine, silver nanoparticles, and dodecyl mercaptan. The superhydrophobic PU sponges feature a high water contact angle, low water shedding angle, good durability, and high oil/water separation efficiency (see figure).
