  1. Next-Generation, High-Energy-Density Redox Flow Batteries

    Qizhao Huang and Dr. Qing Wang

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402099

    Go with the flow: The latest advances in redox flow battery (RFB) related technologies are highlighted in the context of a few decades of development. The technology has mainly advanced through a process of enlarging the electrochemical window by using organic solvents and replacing liquid electrolytes with solid or semisolid materials (see picture).

  2. Synthesis of Bright Alkenyl-1H-1,2,4-triazoles: A Theoretical and Photophysical Study

    Dr. Cristina Cebrián, Dr. Juan de Mata Muñoz, Dr. Cristian Alejandro Strassert, Dr. Pilar Prieto, Prof. Ángel Díaz-Ortiz, Prof. Luisa De Cola and Prof. Antonio de la Hoz

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402153

    Bright 1H-1,2,4-triazoles: A series of alkenyl-1H-1,2,4-triazoles has been synthesized by the eco-friendly Hiyama coupling under microwave irradiation (see figure). The compounds are good blue emitters, with their photophysical properties dependent on the substituent pattern. The emission was modeled computationally, which resulted in a predictive method that could be used for the a priori evaluation of the emissive properties from new related compounds.

  3. A New Class of Phase-Selective Synthetic β-Amino Acid Based Peptide Gelator: From Mechanistic Aspects to Oil Spill Recovery

    Maruthi Konda, Indrajit Maity, Dnyaneshwar B. Rasale and Dr. Apurba K. Das

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402120

    Pick and choose: The mechanistic aspects of supramolecular ordering of a nanoscale β-amino acid based phase-selective peptide gelator are reported. Furthermore, the phase-selective gelation process is efficiently used for oil spill recovery.

  4. Towards Rational Modulation of In-Plane Molecular Arrangements in Metal–Organic Framework Nanosheets

    Dr. Rie Makiura, Ryo Usui, Yuta Sakai, Dr. Akihiro Nomoto, Prof. Akiya Ogawa, Prof. Osami Sakata and Dr. Akihiko Fujiwara

    Article first published online: 18 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402150

    Nanosheets at the interface: Modulation of the in-plane molecular arrangement in highly crystalline metal–organic framework (MOF) nanosheets assembled by two-dimensional interfacial reactions of porphyrins and metal linkers at the air/liquid interface was demonstrated (see picture).

  5. Structure-Dependent Selective Hydrogenation of α,β-Unsaturated Aldehydes over Platinum Nanocrystals Decorated with Nickel

    Zhi Jiang, Dr. Yonghui Zhao, Dr. Lingzhao Kong, Dr. Ziyu Liu, Prof. Yan Zhu and Prof. Yuhan Sun

    Article first published online: 17 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402109

    Taking sides: Pt3Ni cubes with six (100) surfaces enhanced the selectivity of C[DOUBLE BOND]O bond hydrogenation and suppressed the selectivity of C[DOUBLE BOND]C bond hydrogenation, whereas an octahedron with closely packed (111) surfaces (see figure), regardless of whether it is Pt, Pt3Ni, or PtNi, is an unfavorable structure for C[DOUBLE BOND]O hydrogenation.
