  1. Understanding Aqueous Electrolyte Stability through Combined Computational and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy: A Case Study on Vanadium Redox Flow Battery Electrolytes

    Dr. Murugesan Vijayakumar, Zimin Nie, Dr. Eric Walter, Dr. Jianzhi Hu, Dr. Jun Liu, Vincent Sprenkle and Dr. Wei Wang

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402139

    Go with the flow: Combined NMR spectroscopy and computational analysis has provided a comprehensive understanding of vanadium solvation chemistry. Such molecular-level knowledge helped in the design of optimal electrolytes, which led to a highly stable and better performing redox flow battery (see figure).

  2. Activated-Carbon-Supported Gold–Cesium(I) as Highly Effective Catalysts for Hydrochlorination of Acetylene to Vinyl Chloride

    Dr. Jia Zhao, Jiangtao Xu, Jinhui Xu, Jun Ni, Tongtong Zhang, Xiaoliang Xu and Prof. Dr. Xiaonian Li

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402176

    Performance-enhanced doping: CsCl was employed as an additive to gold supported on an activated carbon (AC) catalyst, with the aim of mitigating deactivation of monometallic gold/AC caused mainly by the reduction of Au3+ at the reaction temperature of 180 °C (see figure). The prepared bimetallic Au[BOND]CsI/AC turned out to be an ideal catalyst, with not simply slightly enhanced activity, but clearly improved stability.

  3. In Situ Synthesis of Neutral Dinuclear Rhodium Diphosphine Complexes [{Rh(diphosphine)(μ2-X)}2]: Systematic Investigations

    Antje Meißner, Dr. Angelika Preetz, Dr. Hans-Joachim Drexler, Priv.-Doz. Dr. Wolfgang Baumann, Dr. Anke Spannenberg, Anja König and Prof. Dr. Detlef Heller

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402213

    Rh revisited: The commonly applied in situ method for the preparation of neutral Rh complexes of the type [{Rh(PP)(μ2-X)}2] by addition of diphosphine ligand (2 equiv) to different rhodium precursors might not be as straightforward and selective as generally thought. The outcome is strongly affected by the nature of the diolefin present in the catalyst precursor, the ancillary (diphosphine) ligand, the solvent, and the temperature (see figure).

  4. Comparative Analysis of the Olfactory Properties of Silicon/Germanium/Tin Analogues of the Lily-of-the-Valley Odorants Lilial and Bourgeonal

    Dr. Steffen Dörrich, Dr. Lian Gelis, Dr. Steffen Wolf, Dr. Astrid Sunderkötter, Christoph Mahler, Dr. Elena Guschina, Prof. Dr. Reinhold Tacke, Prof. Dr. Hanns Hatt and Dr. Philip Kraft

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402160

    What’s in a scent? Silicon/germanium/tin analogues of lilial and bourgeonal are synthesized and characterized for their olfactory properties (see scheme). A HEK293 cell line with stable expression of hOR17-4 is used to analyze recombinant hOR17-4 activation by the respective analogues. This C/Si/Ge/Sn switch strategy is a powerful tool to extend our knowledge of structure–odor correlations in the family of lily-of-the-valley odorants.

  5. In Situ Synthesised Silver Nanoparticle-Infused L-Lysine-Based Injectable Hydrogel: Development of a Biocompatible, Antibacterial, Soft Nanocomposite

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402269

    Antibacterial gels: Naphthalene-containing L-lysine-based amphiphilic hydrogelator is exploited for the in situ synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) under sunlight in the absence of an external reducing and/or stabilizing agent. The AgNP–gel nanocomposite exhibits thixotropic properties, which make it suitable as a syringe-injectable hydrogel (see figure). The soft nanocomposite surface exhibits antibacterial activity and biocompatibility to mammalian cells.
