- 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).
- 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
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.
- 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
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.
- 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.
- 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
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).
